Chevrolet Bolt EUV 2023 Alerting the Driver User Guide
Alerting the Driver
If ACC is engaged, driver action may be required when ACC cannot apply sufficient braking because of approaching a vehicle too rapidly. When this condition occurs, the collision alert symbol will flash on the windshield and eight beeps will sound from the front. To view available settings from the infotainment screen, touch Settings > Vehicle > Collision/Detection Systems. See Defensive Driving 0 167.
Approaching and Following a Vehicle
The vehicle ahead indicator is in the instrument cluster. It only displays when a vehicle is detected in your vehicle’s path moving in the same direction. If this symbol
is not displaying, ACC will not respond to or brake for vehicles ahead. ACC automatically slows the vehicle down and adjusts vehicle speed to follow a detected vehicle ahead at the selected following gap. The vehicle speed increases or decreases to follow a detected vehicle in front of your vehicle when that vehicle is traveling slower than your vehicle set speed. It may apply limited braking, if necessary. When braking is active, the brake lamps will come on. The automatic braking may feel or sound different than if the brakes were applied manually. This is normal.
Passing a Vehicle While Using ACC
If the set speed is high enough, and the left turn signal is used to pass a vehicle ahead in the selected following gap, ACC may assist by gradually accelerating the vehiclen prior to the lane change.
When using ACC to pass a vehicle or perform a lane change, the following distance to the vehicle being passed may be reduced. ACC may not apply sufficient acceleration or braking when passing a vehicle or performing a lane change. Always be ready to manually accelerate or brake to complete the pass or lane change.
Stationary or Very Slow-Moving Objects
ACC may not detect and react to stopped or slow-moving vehicles ahead of you. For example, the system may not brake for a vehicle it has never detected moving. This can occur in stop-and-go traffic or when a vehicle suddenly appears due to a vehicle.
Ahead changing lanes. Your vehicle may not stop and could cause a crash. Use caution when using ACC. Your complete attention is always required while driving and you should be ready to take action and apply the brakes.
Irregular Objects Affecting ACC
ACC may have difficulty detecting the following objects:
- Vehicles with cargo extending from the back end
- Non-standard shaped vehicles, such as vehicle transport, vehicles with a side car fitted, or horse carriages . Objects that are close to the front of your vehicle
- Vehicles in front of your vehicle that have a rear aspect that is low, small, or irregular . An empty truck or trailer that has no cargo in the cargo bed
- Vehicles that are low to the road surface
- Vehicles on which extremely heavy cargo is loaded in the cargo area or rear seat
ACC Automatically Disengages
ACC may automatically disengage and the driver will need to manually apply the brakes to slow the vehicle if:
- The front camera is blocked or visibility is reduced.
- The front radar is blocked (if equipped with Super Cruise)
- The Traction Control System (TCS) or StabiliTrak/ESC system has activated or been disabled.
- There is a fault in the system.
- If equipped with Super Cruise, the radar falsely reports blockage when driving in a desert or remote area with no other vehicles or roadside objects.
- A DIC message displays to indicate that ACC is temporarily unavailable.
- The ACC indicator will turn white when ACC is no longer active. In some cases, when ACC is temporarily unavailable, regular cruise control may be used. See “Switching Between ACC and Regular Cruise Control” in this section. Always consider driving conditions before using either cruise control system.
ACC will maintain a following gap behind a detected vehicle and slow your vehicle to a stop behind that vehicle. If the stopped vehicle ahead has driven away and ACC has not resumed, the vehicle ahead indicator will flash as a reminder to check traffic ahead before proceeding. In addition, three beeps will sound. To view available settings from the infotainment screen, touch Settings > Vehicle > Collision/ Detection Systems > Alert Type > Adaptive Cruise Go Notified. When the vehicle ahead drives away, press RES+ or the accelerator pedal to resume ACC. If stopped for more than two minutes or if the driver door is opened and the driver seat belt is unbuckled, the ACC automatically applies the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) to hold the vehicle. The EPB status light will turn on. See Electric Parking Brake 0 182. A DIC warning message may display indicating to shift to P (Park) before exiting the vehicle. See Vehicle Messages 0 105.
If ACC has stopped the vehicle, and if ACC is disengaged, turned off, or canceled, the vehicle will no longer be held at a stop. The vehicle can move. When ACC is holding the vehicle at a stop, always be prepared to manually apply the brakes.
Leaving the vehicle without placing it in P (Park) can be dangerous. Do not leave the vehicle while it is being held at a stop by ACC. Always place the vehicle in P (Park) and turn off the ignition before leaving the vehicle.
