About Forward Collision Alert

Forward Collision Alert can warn you if it detects a potential collision with a detected vehicle you`re following so you can take action. It can also provide a tailgating alert if you`re following a vehicle much too closely.

If the system determines that the vehicle needs to slow down due to a sudden change with the vehicles ahead, it prompts the driver by blinking the vehicle ahead detection indicator and sounding an audible alert.
How does Automatic Collision Notification work? Automatic Collision Notification triggers a connection from the car to the NissanConnect Services Emergency Response Center when the vehicle has been involved in a collision event and/or if the airbags have deployed.
If you want to solve that problem, then keep in mind that your vehicle`s sensors are located behind your fascia cover on the driver`s side of your lower grille.
From the Settings menu, select Driver Assist > Pre-Collision > Alert Sensitivity. Choose between High, Normal and Low sensitivity settings. Note: High means earlier, more frequent warnings.
If you want to turn off CMBS just press and hold down the CMBS button located to the left of the steering column until you hear a beep and a confirmation message displays in the vehicle`s Driver Information Interface. CMBS will now be shut down until you turn off the ignition.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist will turn off when ESC is turned off by pressing and holding the ESC OFF button. The warning light ( ) will illuminate on the cluster.
Active safety systems

These systems are continually active while you drive. They include advanced driver assist systems that use sensors such as forward collision warning, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

The pre-collision warning light indicates a malfunction in the pre-collision system. A sensor may be compromised and will not be able to warn the driver of a potential collision.
Press and hold the CMBS™ OFF button. A beep sounds and a message appears in the Driver Information Interface. The CMBS™ indicator appears when the system is off. CMBS™ automatically resets back to ON each time you start the engine.
To turn CMBS off, press and hold the CMBS OFF button for 2 seconds – located on the panel to the left of the steering wheel. The system will beep and message will appear in the MID: Collision Mitigation Braking System OFF.

Warning chime sounds at intermittent times while driving. No corresponding warning lights on dash.
ANSWER : Hi there. If you have a V6 engine in your vehicle, you may have accidentally activated the HAC (hill-start assist control) feature by pressing hard on the brake pedal. A single beep announces that it has been activated. If the sound continues, then the HAC could be malfunctioning or there could be an issue with the system and needs attention. Warning sounds in vehicle’s warn the driver about issues that are not set or not working properly. There could be sounds for the following:

Seat belt not hooked up when there is someone or something sitting in the seat
Door ajar – meaning a door is open but locked on the first click
Fluid levels are low and need filled up
Hill-start assist control not working properly or turning on and off
Low fuel indication
Daytime running lights not working properly or the system is turning on and off
Tire pressure indicator is reading a difference in tire pressure
trunk or tailgate is not shut all the way

If you need further assistance with your vehicle admitting a warning sound, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.

Battery warning popped up for Hyundai Accent 200
ANSWER : This may be a sign of a weak battery, a failing voltage regulator or failing alternator. As you may know, the alternator is responsible for charging the battery while the engine runs by generating amperage and recharging the battery while the engine turns the alternator. The voltage regulator is a unit that regulates the charging of the battery by the alternator and maintaining a certain amperage while the engine runs. When the alternator is not working properly, this may result in the battery quickly losing charge and the car losing all power as you have described. You may also notice a whining sound as a result of the bearings inside the alternator begin to fail. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your charging system.

My Accord gives out a "Charging system failure" warning. I drove home about 15 miles and then parked my car. After about 3 hours,
ANSWER : Hi there. On a new Honda Accord, the Charging System Failure warning light typically indicates a problem with the battery, alternator or other component inside the charging system of your vehicle. However, with less than 10,000 miles, this is most likely an electrical glitch or stored error code that was triggered. Since your car is "new", I would recommend contacting your Honda dealership first, to tell them about this warning light and ask them how they wish to handle this issue; as it should be covered under warranty. If they can’t help you, please set up a warning light inspection, and one of our mobile mechanics can come to your location and determine why this light came on.

What is the difference between engine oil warning light and another warning light just like that but with waves under the sign? 1996 Mitsubishi Galant
ANSWER : Hello- the warning light you mention is a " low coolant" indicator. Once the engine is cool – check your coolant reservoir and/or cooling system for proper fluid level. Since you seem to have lost fluid, I would recommend an inspection of the cooling system by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

Car shut down and will not start. Warning lights are on – 2006 Toyota Highlander
ANSWER : Hello. From what you describe, it would appear that your vehicle is having some sort of electrical issues. The "Generator Inverter Performance" warning comes on when the computer detects an issue with the vehicle’s electrical generator inverter. The generator inverter is the component that converts the high current electricity from the vehicle’s hybrid battery into a lower power form of electricity that is useable by the vehicle’s various systems.

The inverter is located in the engine bay, as the silver box on top of the engine. Unfortunately, the inverter is a critical component to the functionality of the hybrid system, and therefore to the operation of the vehicle, and, as a result, needs to be repaired or replaced before the vehicle will run again.

The VSC system warning light comes on when the computer detects an issue with the vehicle’s stability control system. This is usually due to a fault with the wheel speed sensors or the ABS module, though electrical issues can sometimes effect this system as well and cause it to behave erratically. I would start by taking care of the generator inverter issue and going from there.

I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, perform an inspection to determine why the warning lights are on and suggest any needed repairs.
