Operation

Operation  - Collision warning system (if equipped) - Driving - Lincoln MKS Owners Manual - Lincoln MKS

The radar sensor detects vehicles ahead that are moving in the same direction as your vehicle.

If the radar detects that your vehicle is rapidly closing in on another vehicle, a red warning light will illuminate and an audible warning chime will sound.

After that, if the risk of collision

After that, if the risk of collision further increases after the warning light, the brake support prepares the brake system for rapid braking.

This may be apparent to the driver.

However, the system will not automatically activate the brakes.

The vehicle will not stop unless the driver presses the brake pedal. If the brake pedal is pressed then braking is implemented with full brake function, even if the force on the brake pedal is light.

The collision warning system is active at speeds above approximately 5 mph (8 km/h).
