Check Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system

  • When FCA is not working properly, FCA warning light (Hyundai Venue. System Malfunction) will illuminate and the warning message will appear for a few seconds. After the message disappears, the master warning light (Hyundai Venue. System Malfunction) will illuminate. In this case, have the vehicle inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
  • FCA warning message may appear along with the illumination of the ESC (Electronic Stability Control) warning light.


  • FCA is only a supplemental system for the driver’s convenience. The driver should hold the responsibility to control the vehicle operation. Do not solely depend on the FCA system. Rather, maintain a safe braking distance, and, if necessary, depress the brake pedal to reduce the driving speed.
  • In certain instances and under certain driving conditions, FCA system may activate prematurely. This initial warning message appears on the LCD display with a warning chime. Also, in certain instances the front radar sensor or camera recognition system may not detect the vehicle or pedestrian ahead. FCA system may not activate and the warning message will not be displayed.
  • If there is a malfunction with FCA system, the Forward Collision avoidance assist system is not applied even though the braking system is operating normally.
  • If the vehicle in front stops suddenly, you may have less control of the brake system. Therefore, always keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
  • FCA system may activate during braking and the vehicle may stop suddenly shifting loose objects toward the passengers. Always keep loose objects secured.
  • FCA system may not activate if the driver applies the brake pedal to avoid a collision.
  • The brake control may be insufficient, possibly causing a collision, if a vehicle in front abruptly stops. Always pay extreme caution.
  • Occupants may get injured, if the vehicle abruptly stops by activated FCA system. Pay extreme caution.


  • FCA system operates only to detect vehicles or pedestrians in front of the vehicle.
  • FCA system does not operate when the vehicle is in reverse.
  • FCA system is not designed to detect other objects on the road such as animals.
  • FCA system does not detect vehicles in the opposite lane.
  • FCA system does not detect cross traffic vehicles that are approaching.
  • FCA system cannot detect the driver approaching the side view of a parked vehicle (for example on a dead end street.)

In these cases, you must maintain a safe braking distance, and if necessary, depress the brake pedal to reduce the driving speed in order to maintain a safe distance.
