Honda CR-V: When Driving / Blind spot information System*

Honda CR-V 2017-2022 Owner's Manual / Driving / When Driving / Blind spot information System*

* Not available on all models

Is designed to detect vehicles in specified alert zones adjacent to your vehicle, particularly in harder to see areas commonly known as “blind spots.”

When the system detects vehicles approaching from behind in adjacent lanes, the appropriate indicator comes on for a few seconds, providing assistance when you change lanes.

How the system works

Failure to visually confirm that it is safe to change lanes before doing so may result in a crash and serious injury or death.

Do not rely only on the blind spot information system when changing lanes.

Always look in your mirrors, to either side of your vehicle, and behind you for other vehicles before changing lanes.

Important Safety Reminder

Like all assistance systems, blind spot information system has limitations. Over reliance on blind spot information system may result in a collision.

The system is for your convenience only. Even if an object is within the alert zone, the following situations may occur.

  • The blind spot information system alert indicator may not come on due to obstruction (splashes, etc.) even without the Blind Spot Info Not Available driver information interface appearing.
  • The blind spot information system alert indicator may come on even with the message appearing.

When the system detects a vehicle

The blind spot information system alert indicator may not come on under the following conditions:

  • A vehicle does not stay in the alert zone for more than two seconds.
  • A vehicle is parked in a side lane.
  • The speed difference between your vehicle and the vehicle you are passing is greater than 6 mph (10 km/h).
  • An object not detected by the radar sensors approaches or passes your vehicle.

You can change the setting for blind spot information system.

Turn the system off when towing a trailer.

The system may not work properly for the following reasons:

  • The added mass tilts the vehicle and changes the radar coverage.
  • The trailer itself can be detected by the radar sensors, causing the blind spot information system alert indicators to come on.

Blind spot information system may be adversely affected when:

  • Objects (guard rails, poles, trees, etc,.) are detected.
  • An object that does not reflect radio waves well, such as a motorcycle, is in the alert zone.
  • Driving on a curved road.
  • A vehicle is moving from a far lane to the adjacent lane.
  • The system picks up external electrical interference.
  • The rear bumper or the sensors have been improperly repaired or the rear bumper has been deformed.
  • The orientation of the sensors has been changed.
  • In bad weather (Heavy rain, snow, and fog).
  • Making a turn at an intersection.
  • Driving on a bumpy road.
  • Making a short turn that slightly tilts the vehicle.

For proper blind spot information system use:

  • Always keep the rear bumper corner area clean.
  • Do not cover the rear bumper corner area with labels or stickers of any kind.
  • Take your vehicle to a dealer if you need the rear bumper corner area or the radar sensors to be repaired, or the rear bumper corner area is strongly impacted. The system does not operate when in Honda CR-V. Blind spot information System*.
