2017 Forward Automatic Braking Does Not Work

5925 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Insight Refugee
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?

It only works at street speeds unless ACC is activated. What speed? What conditions? Why do you think it doesn't work?

'Unavailable' indicates a fault like bugs (the icky kind) on the sensors.
to help avoid the collision or reduce the collision’s severity
This. AEB is not a substitute for driver braking.

I've had AEB activate on my ELR a couple times. One was a false-positive caused by a metal construction strip reflecting back at the car at night. Scared the crap outta my GF. I usually drive on ACC which has a much better braking algorithm.
