2017 Forward Automatic Braking Does Not Work

My Forward Automatic Braking on my 2017 Volt does not work. It doesn't seem to have ever worked. The dealer says they check it and never find anything wrong. I even had a message popup that said Forward Automatic Braking unavailable.

Not sure what to do. Any suggestions?

I have only had FAB engage ONCE, and it was what I would call a "false positive" event. As I was approaching my house I pressed my garage door opener and kept going at 5 to 9 MPH as I turned into my drive way. My driveway is at a slight incline and I guess when I turn in the car read to slowly opening garage door as an obstacle and SLAMMED on the brakes. It was SUDDEN and scared the crap out of me. It took a weird set of circumstances to trigger it.

In all of my other normal driving I have NEVER gotten into a situation where the car needed to respond. I'm not that gutsy.

So to the OP how do you know the FAB isn't working?
I received a message in the DID that it was unavailable after a dealer installed software update a while back. I had to do something with turning the cruise control off and on to get it back.
