When you are in the Driver assistance display, the message Overridden will appear.

Stopping with adaptive cruise assist

The adaptive cruise assist also assists you in stop-and-go traffic. Within the limits of the system, your vehicle may brake and remain at a stop if a vehicle driving ahead stops.

Starting to drive with adaptive cruise assist

As long as the message ready to drive and is displayed, your vehicle will begin driving when the vehicle ahead starts to move.

If your vehicle is stopped for too long, it will no longer drive autonomously for safety reasons, and the message will turn off.

  • To extend ready to drive for a brief time or reactivate it, pull the lever briefly toward you in the direction of the arrow fig. 103.
  • To resume manual control of the vehicle, tap the accelerator pedal.

Safe start monitor

Applies to: vehicles with safe start monitor

The vehicle can still start to drive even if certain obstacles are detected when starting to drive. If the surrounding area detection detects an obstacle, you will be alerted to the danger by the indicator light.

If you are in the Driver assistance display, the display 1 fig. 104 and the message Warning! will also appear. An audio signal will also sound.

Your vehicle will drive more slowly when starting.

This may also occur in some situations when there is no apparent obstacle.

  • Press the brake pedal to slow your vehicle if necessary.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • If the message ready to drive appears, your vehicle will start driving even if there is an obstacle between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead. To reduce the risk of an accident, always make sure there are no obstacles between your vehicle and the vehicle driving ahead.

Tips

For safety reasons, adaptive cruise assist only starts driving actively if:

  • The driver's safety belt is fastened
  • All doors and the hood are closed
  • The vehicle has not been stationary for a long period of time
