Honda CR-V: When Driving / Front Sensor Camera

Honda CR-V 2017-2023 Owner's Manual / Driving / When Driving / Front Sensor Camera

The camera, used in systems; such as RDM, LKAS, ACC with Low Speed Follow, auto high-beam and CMBS™ , is designed to detect an object that triggers any of the systems to operate their functions.

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 the Some Driver Assist Systems Cannot Operate:Camera Temperature Too High: Honda CR-V. Front Sensor Camera message appears:

  • Use the climate control system to cool down the interior and, if necessary, also use defroster mode with the air flow directed toward the camera.
  • Start driving the vehicle to lower the windshield temperature, which cools down the area around the camera.

If the Some Driver Assist Systems Cannot Operate:Clean Front Windshield: Honda CR-V. Front Sensor Camera message appears:

  • Park your vehicle in a safe place, and clean the windshield. If the message does not disappear after you have cleaned the windshield and driven for a while, have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

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.
