Forward Collision Alert not working

Hi all. I bought a 2014 LTZ with the 2LZ which has forward collision alert. However itís not working. The camera recognizes the car in front with the green light on the dash. However no alert when you get too close. Any ideas?

I own a 2014 Impala 2LTZ - purchased new, with the forward collision alert system. Mine does not have the optional forward emergency braking system.

Read your vehicle ownerís manual.

The forward collision alert system will only alert (loud beeping and a read light flashing into the left windshield base from the miniature HUD in the dash) under certain circumstances, which involve a certain speed, distance and lack of (or minimal) braking.

It will not alert if you get too close to a vehicle in front of you at slow speeds.

Hi. Thanks for replying. Having read the manual I am pretty certain I get how it works. However, after watching a few videos online, there is supposed to be a way to turn the system off through the mylink-vehicle-collision avoidance settings on my link. The option to do that is not there. It shows no forward collision option.
I just have that green car in the dash when driving.
If you thinks thatís normal, then do you know a way to test it? Besides driving up on a driver at I assume a high speed. Having tried that nothing happened and not sure if I want to push getting too close. Lol.
The reason I would like to have it working is we have a teenage driver. Just trying to add safety.

Thanks

Our system has always been ďonĒ - I donít think we ever turned it off.

I read our vehicle ownerís manual (sections 9-48 through 9-51) and it has specific instructions on how to turn the system on or off.

Perhaps read your manual and ignore the online videos to see if you can find the feature.

Do you have the camera on the inside of the windshield, behind the mirror - and the mini head-up display on the driver side of the dash (near the windshield base)?

I recall teaching my two sons to drive - and worrying about their driving when they eventually went out on their own in the vehicle. I wish you luck and patience.

Maybe I am not explaining my situation correctly. Attached is a video. At the one minute mark he explains the green car light. He then explains how it goes from green-yellow-red. Mine never goes from green to anything. Just off. Have set the distances on the steering wheel and tested it. Nothing.
I have the camera, I have what is supposed to be the hud. However I have no idea if the hud works because it doesnít ever light up.

My wife usually drives the Impala - the next time I do, Iíll check the settings. I donít drive her car often, so it may be a little while - but Iíll report back via this thread.

I watched your video, but donít recall the display for the green-yellow-red vehicle alert. Perhaps if you scroll through the various settings, you can find it to be displayed. My wife leaves the MPH display on in the center of the dash.

I have been riding with my wife once or twice when the alert sounded. It really gets your attention quickly.

I would suggest again using the manual to review the settings, to ensure everything is set the way you want.

Ok thank you. Also please loot at your Mylink-settings-vehicle-forward collision option to turn on or off the system from there.

I am starting to suspect the camera is bad on my car.

Does the lane change alarm work? That would tell you if the camera was working or not.

Yes. That does. From all the parts break down I do not see any other sensors for the forward collision alert. Unless I am missing something.

From all the research I have done, the camera is the only sensor for the Forward Collision Alert. For some reason, mine is not working correctly and not alerting when I get to close to a vehicle.
