Honda Civic Hatchback 2022 How the System Works User Manual
How the System Works
When you turn the system on and off, do the following.
- Press the safety support switch.
- Roll the right selector wheel to the symbol and push it.
- A message appears on the driver information interface when the system turns on or off.
- A checkmark appears in the box and the color of the symbol changes to green when the system is on. The check mark disappears and the color of the symbol changes to gray when the system is off.
The system is turned on every time you start the engine, even if you turned it off the last time you drove the vehicle.
You can also select safety support content from the driver information interface. Driver Information Interface (Right Side Area) P. 142
The system may temporarily turn off after reconnecting the battery. The system will automatically turn ON after the vehicle has been moving at over 12 mph (20 km/h) for some time. If the system does not turn on, have your vehicle checked by a dealer.
Conditions for Cancellation
Conditions for assistive driving power suppression.
- When the accelerator is no longer depressed.
- When the accelerator is depressed for approximately four seconds.
- When the brake pedal is depressed.
- When the steering wheel is turned and a collision is avoided.
Conditions for assistive braking cancellation.
- A certain amount of time has passed since activation.
Low-Speed Braking Control System Conditions and Limitations
The system may not operate correctly in the following conditions:
Examples of obstacles the sonar sensor cannot detect
- Obstacles that do not reflect sound waves well, such as people, snow, cloth, sponges, etc.
- Thin obstacles such as fences, bicycles, signposts, etc.
- Short or small obstacles.
- Obstacles immediately in front of the bumper.
- Moving objects or obstacles that suddenly enter the road.
- Obstacles that are not perpendicular to the ground.
After Low-Speed Braking Control has been activated once, it will not activate again for the same obstacle. They can be activated again after driving for a certain distance after the last activation. Low-Speed Braking Control activates separately when moving forward and reversing. (For example, if it activates when moving forward, it can be activated again immediately if reversing.) However, if assistive braking has been activated, in order to activate assistive driving power suppression again, it is necessary to drive for a certain distance to reset the system.
Examples of situations where the sonar sensor cannot detect obstacles
- The sonar sensor is dirty (covered by snow, water, mud, etc.).
- The vehicle is too hot or cold.
- The steering wheel is turned sharply when approaching the obstacle at an angle.
Examples of other cases where the system may not work correctly
- The vehicle is tilted due to heavy load or suspension modifications.
- An abnormal tire or wheel condition (incorrect sizes, varied sizes or construction, improperly inflated, compact spare tire, etc.).
- Bad weather conditions such as heavy rain, fog, snow, sandstorms, etc.
- The ambient temperature/humidity is too high or low.
- When going down a very steep slope.
- When close to other vehicles with sonar sensors or other objects that emit ultrasonic waves.
Situations where the system may activate even without the risk of a collision
- When passing through short or narrow gates.
- When driving on uneven surfaces, grassy areas, or places with steps.
- When a sloped pillar or wall is protruding from a high position.
- When there are obstacles next to the road.
- When driving toward flags, curtains, tree branches, railroad crossing bars, etc.
- When driving on flooded roads.
Low-Speed Braking Control
Manual transmission models with the parking sensor system
Using sonar sensors located on the front and rear bumpers, and the front grille, this system detects if there is a danger of a potential collision with a wall or other obstacle during normal driving. The system then assists in avoiding collisions and reducing damage from impact through assistive braking.
The Low-Speed Braking Control System cannot avoid all collisions and may not reduce damage in each situation where the accelerator is mistakenly or aggressively pressed. Overreliance on the system may result in a collision with serious injury or death. Always check your surroundings, your shift position, and your pedal use. The driver remains responsible for safely operating the vehicle.
If the Low-Speed Braking Control activates in a situation where you do not want automatic brake application (such as when the vehicle is between two railroad crossing gates), simply press the brake pedal to deactivate the system and then continue to drive as intended.
How the System Works
The Low-Speed Braking Control provides a visual and audible alert when the vehicle is moving between approximately 1 and 6 mph (2 and 10 km/h) and there is the possibility of a collision with a detected wall or other obstacles, as well as providing assistance with braking.
If the only rear sensors are turned off using the parking sensor system, the Low-Speed Braking Control is not working when reversing. Turning off All Rear Sensors P. 619 For directions on the proper handling of the sonar sensors, please refer to the following page. Sonar Sensors* P. 600
The vehicle will release the brake a few seconds after the system is activated. Keep the brake pedal depressed.
In order to prevent the system from activating when not needed, always turn it off during vehicle maintenance, when loading on ships, trucks, and so on, or when using a chassis dynamometer, free rollers for inspection or when washing the car in conveyor type car wash machine.
