Front Wide-View Camera
The camera, is used in systems such as Lane Keeping Assist Systems (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation systems, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow*, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)*, Traffic Sign Recognition systems, CMBSTM, and Traffic Jam Assist*, is designed to detect an object that triggers any of the systems to operate their functions.
Camera Location and Handling Tips
This camera is located behind the rearview mirror. To help reduce the likelihood that high interior temperatures will cause the camera’s sensing system to shut off, when parking, find a shady area or face the front of the vehicle away from the sun. If you use a reflective sun shade, do not allow it to cover the camera housing. Covering the camera can concentrate heat on it. Never apply a film or attach any objects to the windshield, the hood, or the front grille that could obstruct the camera’s field of vision and cause the system to operate abnormally.
Scratches, nicks, and other damage to the windshield within the camera’s field of vision can cause the system to operate abnormally. If this occurs, we recommend that you replace the windshield with a genuine Honda replacement windshield. Making even minor repairs within the camera’s field of vision or installing an aftermarket replacement windshield may also cause the system to operate abnormally. After replacing the windshield, have a dealer recalibrate the camera. Proper calibration of the camera is necessary for the system to operate properly. Do not place an object on the top of the instrument panel. It may reflect onto the windshield and prevent the system from detecting lane lines properly.
If Some driver assists systems cannot operate: Camera temperature too high message appears:
- Use the climate control system to cool down the interior and, if necessary, also use defroster mode with the airflow directed towards the camera.
- Start driving the vehicle to lower the windshield temperature, which cools down the area around the camera.
If Some driver assists systems cannot operate Clean front windshield or poor viewing condition. message appears:
- Park your vehicle in a safe place, and make sure the windshield is clean.
Clean the windshield if it is dirty. If the message does not disappear after driving for a while, have your vehicle checked by a dealer.
