Front Sensor Camera  
The camera, used in systems such as Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road  
Departure Mitigation system, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed  
Follow, Traffic Sign Recognition system, Collision Mitigation Braking SystemTM  
(CMBSTM), and Traffic Jam Assist, 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
