I have a 2021 Rubicon. When I start the engine, the forward collision warning light comes on indicating the system is off. I have the FCW turned on in the settings. Anyone else experienced this issue. The dealership said they had not head of any similar issues from other owners. I have an appointment to have it checked, but wanted to ask the forum before going there. The dashboard light does not stay on.

I noticed this yesterday on ours. Haven't looked into it at all.

i have the same thing. I was driving 4 hour road trip and then the last 40miles I got a warning Foward Collision and Cruise controls were “unavailable and service was required” but after I restarted the messages never came up. I pushed down a fuse in my fuse box and it went down a lot so that might be it but at start up the FCW off is still there for A few seconds. Don’t know if it’s worth the hassle of going to the dealer. FCW does work though.

I see y’all own a 2021.

Could it be that FCA was running short on some key chip...?

I've got a really big Aux battery, so it's not that in my case.

I've noticed these messages on mine from time to time. I'll start it, put it in reverse and get to the end of my driveway and put it in drive. When I put it in drive, it says that the FCW is on.

In my other car (subaru), I've had the eyesight (FCW) say disabled during torrential downpours and snow. So there are times that I think it gets disabled.

On the Jeep, I don't know if there's just a delay sometimes or if there's more to it where something bad is going to happen in the future. I also see the icons on the radio be goofy sometimes when I start it, so I just attribute a lot of this to things booting up.

Since the day I got mine, when I turn the truck on that light goes on along with other lights but then goes out immediately. I think it might be a start up thing honestly
