Coming from work this morning totally random FCW unavailable and Amber fault message in the DIC. I initially thought system reset. Cycled FCW button off/on a couple of times. Further on I got the “Service Ddive Assist System “ message…..or as I call it….the AMOD…(Amber Messge of Death). Couldn’t find anything obvious and figured shut vehicle down and see if it faults again during next start.


Any thoughts? Could it be as simple as cleaning the FCW sensors and if so….where are they?

So far messages are Amber as in caution and fault…..not the red WARNING or Fail.

One thing I learned in almost 40 years of driving….red is WArNING/ FAIL as in immediate corrective action…..

Amber Caution/fault…..

Anything else besides the obvious green for turn signals and blue for high beams is more…..NOTE and advisory message as in system is active or standby.

Going one step further….Dark/Quiet/12 O’Clock…….aviation logic but same concept if no lights assume running normal in the background.

2023 yes in warranty but seeing if maybe hard reset or battery reset will work fits before wasting dealer time…..local dealer wants three to five days no matter what it is….oil change….leave three-five days and our specialists can get it….wiper blade change…three-five days…..air pressure check…..you got it three-five days.

I get it. My DD is going in for driver's airbag (finally) and an inspection of the passenger airbag. Said to expect to leave it for 2-3 days, since they're busy and will need to remove part of the dash for the passenger side. When we scheduled we had to push out a month in order to get a comp car.

always start with cleaning all of the sensors - there's sensors in the windshield behind rearview mirror, and the proximity warning sensors in the bumper. They don't take much dirt to not work properly

thanks Toasty….I will get them tomorrow…my Friday at work tonight.

Similar searches came with a TSB for 2021 models and usually required battery reset and some codes to check for. There was also a 2015-2020 generation that was traced down to the vibrating seat actuator.

Drivable just old school actually have to actually look ahead for traffic……anyone remember those days?

I agree, start with the basics!!
