All Honda vehicles are equipped with Honda Sensing®, a Honda-exclusive suite of intelligent safety technologies designed to help you see and sense more on the road in Lakewood. However, we’ve found that many drivers are unsure about the details. What is Honda Sensing®, and what’s special about the features included? Read the guide below for an overview of the Honda Sensing features — and reach out to our service center technicians if you have further questions!
All Honda models come with a standard Honda Sensing® package, and you’ll find additional intelligent safety features on select models. When it comes to your Honda’s full range of safety features, what is Honda Sensing® best for? These “intelligent” features use computers and cameras to sense possible collisions, and make adjustments to avoid them if you aren’t able to do so in time.
Sometimes a specific driving situation means you need to override Honda Sensing monitors, so can you turn off Honda Sensing® features? This is a question that comes up often on the technical side! Fortunately, there are several ways to turn active safety features off and on.
Some features can be turned off with specific buttons on your dash display. For example, you can turn off RDM with a button located under ECON, and you can turn off LKS by holding the MAIN button on the steering wheel until the LKS instrument cluster indicators turn off. Check your owner manual for info on turning off any Honda Sensing® features, and feel free to contact Honda Universe Service for Honda Sensing technical help!
Alternatively, if your Honda model has the available central touchscreen, you can configure Honda Sensing® settings there. Navigate through the following screens: Settings > Vehicle Settings > Drive Assist Setup. From here you can turn features on and off, customize RDM and CMBS warnings, and more.
Can you turn off Honda Sensing features without losing your custom settings? You can: any feature can be turned off and on without disrupting your customized warnings.
