Do I need to turn something on (in the car settings collision warning is on).
tried it with a friend while he was going slower than me and i just raced almost into his bumper, no warning, no braking assist, nothing, it's like my ch-r wants me to crash :)

It don,t need the parking sensors.

The pre-collision system uses a radar sensor and camera sensor
to detect vehicles and pedestrians* in front of your vehicle.

And you are shure that the system is swich on

I dont think the collision warning operates if you already have your foot on the brake pedal. Could it be that?

I rarely see the "BRAKE!" sign... maybe we should start the cruise control? although i tried it too.. it's just.. random!

I have found that after using the adaptive cruise control for a while the front parking sensor goes mad when coming into traffic :eek: , which is starting to annoy me :evil:

If the system is turned on, and you set it to most sensitive (medium works best for me) and you are pressing the accelerator or no pedal it should give you a brake warning. However it does it when you are too close (for your normal feeling).
It is also not intended to completely prevent an accident, but to minimize the impact. Untill a certain speed it will prevent a collision.

If you want to see it at work, look at the end of the NCAP crashtest video.

Another one who'd say check to see if it's switched on. I had the same issue with mine when I got it and it had been delivered with it switched off.

I raised a similar question a while ago and did something similar when my friend was in front, again nothing happened part from me hitting the brakes hard at last minute.
Then another time driving along and my side of road approaching a narrow single lane there was a bollard my side, I knew I was ok to carry on and drive around it but car alerted me of collision. Bit hit and miss. Just hope it will do its job if it ever needs to.

Had no issues with mine touch wood. In fact it has stopped three accidents so far and I am super happy with it.

One other thing. Make sure your sensors are clean. The one and only time mine has "miss" alerted was the radar was wet and dirty on the front.
