Honda Civic Parking Sensor System User Manual
Parking Sensor System
The corner and center sensors monitor obstacles around your vehicle, and the beeper, driver information interface and audio/information screen let you know the approximate distance between your vehicle and the obstacle.
The sensor location and range
Even when the system is on, always confirm if there is no obstacle near your vehicle before parking.
The system may not work properly when:
- The sensors are covered with snow, ice, mud, or dirt.
- The vehicle is on uneven surfaces, such as grass, bumps, or a hill.
- The vehicle has been out in hot or cold weather.
- The system is affected by devices that emit ultrasonic waves.
- Driving in bad weather.
The system may not sense:
- Thin or low objects.
- Sonic-absorptive materials, such as snow, cotton, or sponge.
- Objects directly under the bumper.
Do not put any accessories on or around the sensors.
Parking sensor system on and off
With the power mode is ON, press the parking sensor system button to turn on or off the system. The indicator in the button comes on when the system is on. The front corner, rear corner, and rear center sensors start to detect an obstacle when the transmission is in (R, and the vehicle speed is less than 5 mph (8 km/h). The front corner and front center sensors start to detect an obstacle when the transmission is in any position other than (P* or (R, and the vehicle speed is less than 5 mph (8 km/h).
Manual transmission models
You also need to release the parking brake. When you set the power mode to ON, the system will be in the previously selected condition.
You can switch between split view off and split view on by touching the split screen tab. The split screen tab disappears, and the split view returns to the last camera view mode under the following conditions: If there is a malfunction in the system.
When the distance between your vehicle and detected obstacles becomes shorter
Turning off All Rear Sensors
- Make sure that the parking sensor system is not activated. Set the power mode to VEHICLE OFF.
- Press and hold the parking sensor system button, and set the power mode to ON.
- Keep pressing the button for 10 seconds. Release the button when the indicator in the button flashes.
The beeper sounds once.
- Press the button again. The indicator on the button goes off.
The beeper sounds twice. The rear sensors are now turned off.
To turn the rear sensors on again, follow the above procedure. The beeper sounds three times when the rear sensors come back on. When you put the transmission into (R, the indicator in the parking sensor system button blinks as a reminder that the rear sensors have been turned off.
Cross Traffic Monitor
Monitors the rear corner areas using the radar sensors when reversing, and alerts you if a vehicle approaching from a rear corner is detected. The system is convenient when you are backing out of a parking space.
Cross Traffic Monitor cannot detect all approaching vehicles and may not detect an approaching vehicle at all. Failure to visually confirm that it is safe to back up the vehicle before doing so may result in a collision. Do not solely rely on the system when reversing; always also use your mirrors, and look behind and to the sides of your vehicle before reversing. The parking sensor system’s alerting buzzer overrides the Cross Traffic Monitor buzzer when the sensors are detecting obstacles at the closest range.
How the System Works
The system activates when:
- The power mode is in ON.
- The Cross Traffic Monitor is turned on.
- Cross Traffic Monitor On and Off P. 623.
- The transmission is in (R.
- Your vehicle is moving at 3 mph (5 km/h) or lower.
When a vehicle is detected approaching from a rear corner, Cross Traffic Monitor alerts you with a buzzer and a displayed warning. The system will not detect a vehicle that approaches from directly behind your vehicle, nor will it provide alerts about a detected vehicle when it moves directly behind your vehicle. The system does not provide alerts for a vehicle that is moving away from your vehicle, and it may alert pedestrians, bicycles, or stationary objects.
Cross Traffic Monitor may not detect or may delay alerting an approaching vehicle, or may alert without an approaching vehicle under the following conditions:
- An obstacle, such as another vehicle and a wall, near your vehicle’s rear bumper, is blocking the radar sensor’s scope.
- Your vehicle is moving at the speed of about 3 mph (5 km/h) or higher.
- A vehicle is approaching at a speed other than between about 6 mph (10 km/h) and 16 mph (25 km/h).
- The system picks up external interference such as other radar sensors from another vehicle or strong radio waves transmitted from a facility nearby.
- Either corner of the rear bumper is covered with snow, ice, mud or dirt.
- When there is bad weather.
- Your vehicle is on an incline.
- Your vehicle is tilted due to a heavy load in the rear.
- Your vehicle is reversing towards a wall, a pole, a vehicle, and so on.
The rear bumper or the sensors have been improperly repaired or the rear bumper has been deformed. Have your vehicle checked by a dealer. For proper operation, always keep the rear bumper corner area clean. Do not cover the rear bumper corner area with labels or stickers of any kind.
When the System Detects a Vehicle
An arrow icon appears on the side a vehicle is approaching on the audio/information screen. If the on the lower right changes to in amber when the transmission is in (R, mud, snow or ice, etc. may have accumulated in the vicinity of the sensor. The system is temporarily canceled. Check the bumper corners for any obstructions, and thoroughly clean the area if necessary. If the comes on when the transmission is in (R, there may be a problem with the Cross Traffic Monitor system. Do not use the system and have your vehicle checked by a dealer. If the display remains the same with the transmission in (R, there may be a problem with the rear camera system and the Cross Traffic Monitor system. Do not use the system and have your vehicle checked by a dealer.
Cross Traffic Monitor On and Off
The system can be turned on and off on the audio/information screen by pressing the Cross Traffic Monitor icon. You can also switch the system on and off from the customized feature on the audio/information screen.
