Nissan Murano: Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) (if so equipped) / Vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode limitations

Nissan Murano 2015-2022 Owners Manual / Starting and driving / Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) (if so equipped) / Vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode limitations

WARNING

Listed below are the system limitations for the ICC system. Failure to operate the vehicle in accordance with these system limitations could result in serious injury or death.

  • The ICC system is primarily intended for use on straight, dry, open roads with light traffic. It is not advisable to use the ICC system in city traffic or congested areas.
  • The ICC system will not adapt automatically to road conditions. This system should be used in evenly flowing traffic.Donot use the systemonroads with sharp curves, or on icy roads, in heavy rain or in fog.
  • As there is a performance limit to the distance control function, never rely solely on the ICC system. This system does not correct careless, inattentive or absentminded driving, or overcome poor visibility in rain, fog, or other bad weather. Decelerate the vehicle speed by depressing the brake pedal, depending on the distance to the vehicle ahead and the surrounding circumstances in order to maintain a safe distance between vehicles.
  • If the vehicle ahead comes to a stop, the vehicle decelerates to a standstill within the limitations of the system. The system will cancel once it judges that the vehicle has come to a standstill and sound a warning chime. To prevent the vehicle from moving, the driver must depress the brake pedal.
  • Always pay attention to the operation of the vehicle and be ready to manually control the proper following distance. The ICC systemmaynot be able to maintain the selected distance between vehicles (following distance) or selected vehicle speed under some circumstances.
  • The system may not detect the vehicle in front of you in certain road or weather conditions. To avoid accidents, never use the ICC system under the following conditions:
    • On roads where the traffic is heavy or there are sharp curves
    • On slippery road surfaces such as on ice or snow, etc.
    • During bad weather (rain, fog, snow, etc.)
    • When rain, snow or dirt adhere to the bumper around the distance sensor
    • On steep downhill roads (the vehicle may go beyond the set vehicle speed and frequent braking may result in overheating the brakes)
    • On repeated uphill and downhill roads
    • When traffic conditionsmake it difficult to keep a proper distance between vehicles because of frequent acceleration or deceleration
    • Interference by other radar sources
  • Do not use the ICC system if you are towing a trailer. The system may not detect a vehicle ahead.
  • In some road or traffic conditions, a vehicle or object can unexpectedly come into the sensor detection zone and cause automatic braking. Always stay alert and avoid using the ICC system where not recommended in this warning section.

The radar sensor will not detect the following objects:

  • Stationary and slow moving vehicles
  • Pedestrians or objects in the roadway
  • Oncoming vehicles in the same lane
  • Motorcycles traveling offset in the travel lane

The sensor generally detects the signals returned fromthe vehicle ahead. Therefore, if the sensor cannot detect the reflection from the vehicle ahead, the ICC system may not maintain the selected distance.

The following are some conditions in which the sensor cannot properly detect a vehicle ahead and the system may not operate properly:

  • When snow or road spray fromtraveling vehicles reduces the sensor’s detection.
  • When your vehicle is towing a trailer, etc.
  • When excessively heavy baggage is loaded in the rear seat or cargo area of your vehicle.

The ICC system is designed to automatically check the sensor’s operation within the limitations of the system.

When the sensor is covered with dirt or is obstructed, the system will automatically be canceled. If the sensor is covered with ice, a transparent or translucent vinyl bag, etc., the ICC system may not detect them. In these instances, the vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode may not cancel and may not be able to maintain the selected following distance from the vehicle ahead. Be sure to check and clean the sensor regularly.

The detection zone of the radar sensor is limited. A vehicle ahead must be in the detection zone for the vehicle-to-vehicle distance detection mode to maintain the selected distance from the vehicle ahead.

A vehicle ahead may move outside of the detection zone due to its position within the same lane of travel. Motorcycles may not be detected in the same lane ahead if they are traveling offset from the centerline of the lane.A vehicle that is entering the lane ahead may not be detected until the vehicle has completely moved into the lane.

If this occurs, the ICC system may warn you by blinking the system indicator and sounding the chime. The driver may have to manually control the proper distanceawayfromvehicle travelingahead.

When driving onsomeroads, such as winding, hilly, curved, narrow roads, or roads which are under construction, the radar sensor may detect vehicles in a different lane, or may temporarily not detect a vehicle traveling ahead. This may cause the radar system to decelerate or accelerate the vehicle.

The detection of vehicles may also be affected by vehicle operation (steering maneuver or traveling position in the lane, etc.) or vehicle condition.

If this occurs, the ICC system may warn you by blinking the system indicator and sounding the chime unexpectedly. You will have to manually control the proper distance away from the vehicle traveling ahead.

    Automatic cancellation

    A chime sounds under the following conditions and the control is automatically canceled: When the vehicle ahead is not detected and your vehicle is traveling below the speed of 15 mph (24 km/h) When the system judges the vehicle is at a standstill Whenthe shift lever is not in theD(Drive) position, Manual mode...

    System temporarily unavailable

    The following are conditions in which the ICC system may be temporarily unavailable. In these instances, the ICC system may not cancel and may not be able to maintain the selected following distance from the vehicle ahead...
