Ford Fusion: Driving Aids / Driver Alert

Principle of Operation

WARNING: You are responsible for controlling your vehicle at all times. The system is designed to be an aid and does not relieve you of your responsibility to drive with due care and attention. Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle, personal injury or death.

WARNING: The system may not function if the sensor is blocked.

WARNING: Take regular rest breaks if you feel tired. Do not wait for the system to warn you.

WARNING: Certain driving styles may result in the system warning you even if you are not feeling tired.

WARNING: In cold and severe weather conditions the system may not function. Rain, snow and spray can all limit sensor performance.

WARNING: The system will not operate if the sensor cannot track the road lane markings.

WARNING: The system may not operate properly if the sensor is blocked. Keep the windshield free from obstruction.

WARNING: If damage occurs in the immediate area surrounding the sensor, have your vehicle checked as soon as possible.

WARNING: The system may not correctly operate if your vehicle is fitted with a suspension kit not approved by us.

Note: The system assists you when driving on fast main roads and freeways.

Note: The system calculates an alertness level at vehicle speeds above approximately 40 mph (65 km/h).

The system monitors your driving behavior.

The system is designed to alert you if it calculates that you are becoming drowsy or if your driving deteriorates.

Using Driver Alert

Switching the System On and Off

Switch the system on using the information display.

Note: The system remains on or off depending on how it was last set.

The system calculates your alertness level based upon your driving behavior in relation to the lane markings and other factors.

System Warnings

Note: The system does not warn you if the vehicle speed falls below approximately 40 mph (65 km/h).

The warning system has two stages:

  1. A temporary warning is issued to advise you to take a rest. This message only appears for a short time.
  2. If you do not rest and the system continues to detect that your driving deteriorates, it issues a further warning. This remains in the information display until you cancel it.

Press OK on the steering wheel control to remove the warning.

Resetting the System

You can reset the system by:

  • Switching the ignition off and on.
  • Stopping your vehicle and then opening and closing the driver door.

    Understanding Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    Ford Fusion. Understanding Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    The tire pressure monitoring system measures pressure in your road tires and sends the tire pressure readings to your vehicle. You can view the tire pressure readings through the information display. The low tire pressure warning light will turn on if the tire pressure is significantly low. Once the light is illuminated, your tires are under-inflated and need to be inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure. Even if the light turns on and a short time later turns off, your tire pressure still needs to be checked.
