How Do I Adjust the Ford Pre-Collision Assist Alert Sensitivity?

If you perceive pre-collision assist alerts as being too frequent, you can reduce the alert sensitivity, though Ford recommends using the highest sensitivity setting where possible. Setting lower sensitivity would lead to fewer and delayed system warnings.

To adjust the Pre-Collision alert sensitivity: 

  1. Scroll to Driver Assist using the five-way controls on your steering wheel.  

    Driver Assist
  2. Select Pre-Collision.
  3. Choose Alert Sensitivity.
  4. Select one of the three available alert sensitivity options.

    Alert Intensity

Note: Instructions may vary depending on your vehicle model and year. Refer to your Owner's Manual for important warnings and specific information for your vehicle.
