Thanks for your reply.In one of my I-CAR programs, it states that faulty suspension, OR A LESS THAN PERFECTION ALIGNMENT COULD AFFECT THE ACC. STUDENTS WANT TO KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENS. I NEED AN EXPLANATION TO HELP MY "INTELLIGENCE" IN EXPLAINING THIS.Thanks in advance for your help. Regards I-CAR

I?m not sure I understand the basis of your question. ACCs typically use a radar or laser to detect the "speed" of the vehicle or object in front of the ACC vehicle. Thus in forward thinking is a representation of the difference in "speed". I am assuming that you are referring to erratic speed referencing in the ACC from excessive vehicle bounce or wondering in the ACC vehicle. I would assume that the ACC module has buffing for such things embedded in the software allowing for this. Gary McNabb
