I've gotten those "assist" features a few times in rental cars, and they absolutely make me crazy.I got a 401a and really didn’t want all those things either but I wanted Ruby Red and purchased it. I have them turned on and turn off lane assist. It really doesn’t bother me only had the lights on the dash board light up a few times because someone in front of me wanted to quickly brake and turn right.. I still had enough room and I don’t think active breaking kicked in
I managed to disable it permanently with Forscan. If I couldn't have done it with Forscan, then I would have physically unplugged the radar. That's how much I hate this stupid crap. I hate it with a passion.I notice that there's no option to turn off "pre-collision assist". How do you disable it permanently?
I share your views on these features - no problem with having them offered, but there should never be any sort of automatic function that the owner cannot disable.I managed to disable it permanently with Forscan.

I have nothing against its mere existence, I know it has its upsides, I know that some people (who shouldn't have a driver's licence, but we'll gloss over that) may need it. I'm glad it exists. By all means, if someone wants a car with a mind of its own, then they should be able to buy one. I'm fine with that.
But if I ever meet the moron who decided that we shouldn't be allowed to disable it, I will kill him in the slowest and most painful way possible.
Thank you! This is precisely what I was hoping someone would be able to tell me.The relevant settings are in the IPC, IPMA and BCM. There's also one in the ABS module, but you can't change that, because it triggers an error light on the dash. So you have to leave the ABS alone, but that's OK, because the feature is disabled anyway with or without the ABS setting.
I don't know the codes, because I used the "easy" config options. The latest ForScan version has them all.
2021. Lane departure: Yes mine stays off at each restart if I keep it off.Does it stay off permanently?
This is a serious question for me. I travel a good bit and get a fairly wide variety of rental cars, and there are few things that I find more annoying than a setting that doesnt stay changed after I've changed it. As a result of this control characteristic, I won't be buying another Challenger, and am thinking about returning to a Mustang....but not if it does the same thing.
I agree lane departure may be much for normal driving, but it'd definitely be welcome in those final stretches to a rest stop during a long trip, when sleep's creeping up on you.Outside of lane departure ( if that tired shouldn't be driving as its more dangerous than phone or drunk) I love all the tech.
It's great for country roads (animals) and urban setting ( human wildlife) and well as idiots on the phone and bullet proof cyclists haha.
I regularly drive in Chicago traffic. There is ALWAYS someone in one or both rear quarter regions, which means that those [email protected] lights are constantly flashing. It is beyond annoying - it's a hazardous distraction.Personally, I don't see a reason to turn off BLIS and collision assist. Especially since, to my knowledge, BLIS is only indicators in the corners of the mirrors—correct me if I'm wrong on that. I suppose with correctly adjusted mirrors, you could make the point it's redundant in a Mustang-sized car.
Start/stop is where I draw the hard line, yeah. Can't be good for the starter, in any car. If I'm sitting in traffic that long, I'll decide when, or even if, to shut the engine off.For sure. Lane assist is practically semi self drive on some cars. Others it's a joke more of a wake up call.
I take blis all day long though for constant bumper to bumper I'd turn it off. Thankfully don't have startstop which is totally annoying and a total waste just for lab results compliance / economy purposes.
I do have city safety on all the time as usually in urban areas.
