SBS Smart Brake Support- not working?
« on: October 03, 2017, 09:11:20 pm »
My car seems to have SBS support, however when i set up a cardboard box barrier to test the system, in every case and at all speeds, the system failed to work/ intervene.  Is there any way of verifying that the system actually works?

I have the second generation car, so had no idea that such tricks exist in the new 6. I found online some videos and it seems that it had to do with the settings.

First I found this:

Have you played with the distance settings?

Then I found this from the CX car:

This is impressive.

This one:

Has all the fails you explain but then he sets the distance and it works with the same carton test you do while previously it did not.

I would play with the settings and if it does not work, I would visit the dealer to ask them to demo/check it for free.

I know there are many conditions (grey areas) under which the system will not work, plenty of information in the manual.

I had a bit of a "situation" last week. Parking the car in the NCP multi-storey place, pulling up to the ticket machine, yellow barrier ahead of me. All of a sudden car stops, honks and displays a message about the emergency breaking.

Bit weird, wasn't going quickly or unable to stop in time. Felt like the engine stalled, honk was a funny accent too.

This is what to expect when the system actually does work...... hope this helps in the slightest.

Hi
I think you will find if you tested against something metal it will work better if it works I asked the dealer to show it works in my car and he drove at a builders skip and it stopped fine but having an auto the car then wanted to drive of again towards the bin but at tick over speed.
I love to drive my car but has too many issues
