Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (I-FCW) is a Nissan accident avoidance technology, alerting you if the vehicle in front of you in your lane suddenly stops. It’s able to do this thanks to a sensor behind the grille of the front bumper, which monitors the traffic in front of you. When there’s risk of a collision, the instrument panel will show a blinking icon, as well as an audible noise, indicating the vehicle ahead has stopped. The I-FCW system works at speeds above 5 km/h, notifying you of potential collisions at slow or fast speeds. West End Nissan is home to a wide selection of Nissan vehicles, and remains a top source for all your Edmonton Nissan technology, model, and service needs in the area.

How to Turn On or Off the I-FCW System
It’s simple to disable the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning system, and you can do it straight from your Nissan model’s steering wheel. On the directional pad of your steering wheel’s left side, press the left or right indicator buttons until you reach the Settings screen, then navigate to the Driver Assistance section. Once there, select Emergency Brake, and then toggle off the Front option. Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) are integrated together, so when the I-FCW system is set to On or Off, the AEB system will follow suit. Keep in mind that the default setting for these safety systems in On, so when the engine is restarted both the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking systems will be turned back on. That’s because this Nissan safety system is just another Intelligent Nissan offering, serving to better your drive.
