so i got the car back with front camera replaced, sorry i do not see a difference and i cannot see how front assist should really work. how can i test it. today i almost rear ended a car because it unexpectedly slowed down at a traffic light turn. i came about 1 meter away to a stop - no front assist warning or anything - it was day light. now i find this in the manual:
"Front Assist does not function as expected or is triggered unnecessarily several times.
— The radar sensor or camera window is dirty. Clean the radar sensor and windscreen → page 355.
— The system limits have been exceeded → page 162.
— Low sun or darkness.
— If the problem persists, switch off Front Assist and go to a qualified workshop."
does that mean it only works during the day?
also i find this one
"The indicator lamp lights up.
— Front Assist is temporarily unavailable or limited. Front Assist is available after driving straight ahead for a short time, and the indicator light goes out. When the vehicle is not in motion, the indicator lamp lights up continuously".
anyone has seen that one? not in my car. so how can i find out it works without crashing the car in a wall? i just checked again, they light is not coming on when i stop the car.
somehow i get increasingly frustrated between what the manual says and what the car is doing.
