Forward Collision System Reduced Message

A Forward Collision System Reduced message (Fig. 11) may appear on the Driver Information Center (DIC) when the vehicle is started on 2016-2018 CT6, Escalade, Malibu, Volt; 2017-2018 XT5, Bolt EV, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Acadia, Sierra, Yukon; 2018 Enclave, Equinox, and Traverse models equipped with Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking (RPO UHY). On some 2016 models, the DIC message displayed may be Automatic Collision Prep Reduced.

When driving in a forward gear, if the Forward Automatic Braking system detects another vehicle ahead in the path that the vehicle traveling and in the same direction, it can provide a boost to braking or automatically brake the vehicle to help avoid or lessen the severity of a collision. Depending on the situation, the vehicle may automatically brake moderately or hard. The system works when driving in a forward gear between 5 mph (8 km/h) and 50 mph (80 km/h) or, on vehicles with Adaptive Cruise Control, above 2 mph (4 km/h). It can detect vehicles up to approximately 197 ft. (60 m).


There are three possible settings for the Forward Automatic Braking system:

  • Off
  • Alert
  • Alert and Brake


The Forward Collision System Reduced DIC message will be displayed when the Forward Automatic Braking system has been set to the “Alert” setting in the Vehicle Settings on the infotainment system.


The Alert setting disables most automatic braking functions, providing reduced operation. This is normal when the system has been set to “Alert.”


If the system is set to “Alert and Brake,” (Fig. 12) the DIC message will no longer by displayed when the vehicle is started.
