My car will not remember my setting for the Forward Collision Alert. It defaults back to "On" every time I restart the car. The dealer says that this is expected behavior, and Jaguar policy forbids them from changing it even though they have the ability to do so. Are they being facetious?



I drive aggressively on the highway and the alarm is ridiculously annoying. Has anyone else had this response from the dealer? Is there a workaround for this that I can perform myself?


I remember I had a similar problem with my F-Pace where the dealer wouldn't set the auto-start feature to default to off, and I was able to disable it completely by unplugging a cable in the trunk of the car. Is there something similar for the Forward Collision Alert?

I called Jaguar North America and they confirmed that it is in fact Jaguar's policy to default the alert to "On," so I guess the dealer was correct on that point. So I'm left with looking for a work around. Any ideas?

I drive pretty aggressively too but that alert hardly ever comes on. I suspect that yours is overly sensitive for some reason (unless you really drive like a total a..hole)

I thought mine was broken because I cannot get it to respond even when trying to. I was told it is working as designed...

Lol I probably do drive like an *******, but I live in Chicago and it's par for the course up here. Traffic is a bit ridiculous. It almost always comes on when I accelerate quickly to change lanes into a relatively small gap. I just got my car back after a week of getting software updates and recalls done. I'll see if anything has changed.

>:)

Sometimes you just can't get to open ground unless you drive like an *******. But then the real assholes are the people driving side by side on the freeway.
