Welcome to Just Answer my name is Mark.

The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system uses a sensor/camera mounted in the front bumper area. During any sort of collision, this unfortunately is going to get damaged. If you have collision insurance on the vehicle you might want to decide to use it now because this is not a cheap fix by any means.

The camera alone is upwards of $1500 the last time I looked plus, there is a special and precise adjustment that needs to be done to it. Once all that is completed, your dealer needs to road test this with a laptop connected to allow the system to go through its calibration process before it will work again. Typically this can be anywhere from 1-2 hours of shop time at your dealer.

I hope that helps, let me know if you need anything further.

Thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
