Opel Corsa: Active emergency braking / System limitations

In some cases, the active emergency braking system may provide an automatic braking in situations that seem to be unnecessary, for instance in parking garages, due to various types of objects, i.e., traffic signs or vehicles in another lane. This is normal operation, the vehicle does not need service. Firmly apply the accelerator pedal to override the automatic braking if the situation and the surroundings permit.

In the following cases, active emergency braking performance might be limited:

  • driving on winding or hilly roads
  • detecting vehicles with a trailer, tractors, muddy vehicles, etc.
  • detecting a vehicle when weather limits visibility, such as in fog, rain, or snow
  • driving during nighttime
  • the sensor in the windscreen or the radar unit behind the front bumper are blocked by snow, ice, slush, mud, dirt etc.
  • the windscreen is damaged or affected by foreign objects, e.g. stickers
  • the bumper is damaged or affected by foreign objects, e.g. license plate support

Complete attention is always required while driving, and you should be ready to take action and apply the brakes and / or steer the vehicle to avoid crashes.

We recommend to deactivate the system in the vehicle personalisation in the following cases:

  • when towing a trailer or caravan
  • when carrying long objects on roof bars or a roof rack
  • when the vehicle is being towed with the engine running
  • when the vehicle is fitted with snow chains
  • when a spare wheel is fitted that is smaller than the other wheels
  • before using an automatic car wash with the engine running
  • before placing the vehicle on a rolling road in a workshop
  • if the windscreen has been damaged close to the camera
  • if the front bumper has been damaged
  • if the brake lights are not working
