So far I have not seen the collision warning. I have the Collision Alert set to Near.
My cousin was here a few weeks back with her new Honda Pilot and she said when meeting a car in a sharp curve she would get a brake message.
Are you talking about the paddles on the back side of the steering wheel?
hmm well I cant wait to get to the car after work now.. I was looking at pictures and I see what button you are taking about, in the middle of the cluster on the left side.. maybe I'm crazy but I don't think mine has that.
Sounds like this discussion is talking about two different features. The button you're referring to, on the left side of the steering wheel on our Premier controls the lane change alert. The button turns it on or off. When it's on you will feel steering resistance if you try to wander out of your lane, (on well marked, snow free roads), an icon will appear in the DIC, and your seat will vibrate. MHO, it's a PITA. I leave it off.
The front collision alert sensitivity can be adjusted through the personal preferences menu. I don't do much with the menus, my wife takes care of that. The flashing red light on the windshield was distracting in traffic, so I had her turn it off. I haven't rear ended anyone in the last sixty years. I hope I'm not around when all vehicles drive themselves, I like driving!
There's a button on the steering for both Lane Change and Collision Alert.
Selecting the Alert Timing
The Collision Alert control is on the
steering wheel. Press[to set the
FCA timing to Far, Medium, or Near,
or on some vehicles, Off. The first
button press shows the current
setting on the DIC. Additional button
presses will change this setting.
Sure enough, there it was, the button to control forward collision selections. I very seldom drive the Premier but I know the salesman at the dealer asked what selection we wanted and I didn't pay attention to what he did. My wife may have turned it off in the Premier, fortunately I drive the LT diesel almost exclusively and don't have to deal with these dummy proof features. I do, however, like many of the features of the Premier and if I was going to do it over I'd probably step up to a Premier diesel. I don't like the way GM packages the diesel LT. Many of the features of the $1995 convenience package offered on the gas LT are included with the diesel LT but I was disappointed that the power/remote lift gate was not. You have to buy an additional $2200+ (?) package to get it on the diesel. That package also includes entertainment upgrades, moon roof and navigation, etc. which I have no use for. Anyway, thanks for the heads up about the subject feature.
Just found this TechLink outlining DTCs and transmission failures that may cause the vehicle to move forward in Neutral as well as other symptoms.
" DTCs include P2724 (Solenoid Valve 5 Stuck On) on applicable 6-speed transmissions, P0747 (Solenoid Valve 1 Stuck On) on applicable 9-speed...
Good afternoon everyone, I am new to the Forum. I bought a 2017 Equinox on Saturday. I am wanting to swap out the dull interior lights for led bulbs, I tried finding a specific thread for the bulb type and walk though if someone has one.
Thank you all in advance
Hello, I'm posting this for my grandfather who recently purchased a 2010 Equinox 2WD. So far he really loves the car, however we think that there may be a bit of a problem with it. The car shifts into M just fine (usually M1 from a standing stop, M3 or M4 if you shift while at speed) However the...
Looking for some AC advice: have a 2011 Terrain 2.4 with basic cabin temp control. The AC does not work, and the radiator blower has yet to come on under normal driving conditions (granted, its still cool here in NH). All the interior cabin ventilation stuff works, heat, blend door, blower...
