Honda CR-V: Parking Your Vehicle / Cross Traffic Monitor*

Honda CR-V 2017-2023 Owner's Manual / Driving / Parking Your Vehicle / Cross Traffic Monitor*

* Not available on all models

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.

Cross Traffic Monitor may not detect an approaching vehicle, or may delay alerting you 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 the 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 wave 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.
