I'm talking about long, medium or short. Lots of times when driving on a road that curves to the right it all get the warning with wheel shake when a car is coming the other direction. Its almost like the angle of the sensor is off. I've driven these same roads with a CRV with the Collision Mitigation Braking and never had an issue. Is this something the dealer can correct?

Thanks

You're right about that although I don't get a wheel or steering shake (only experience when it senses I am departing my lane). All I see is the ominous brake alert on the dashboard. Just learned to ignore it but it will definitely be in order for Honda and not the dealer to fix.

So this is not something the dealer can adjust? I'll have to stop by when I get a chance a talk to them

There would be no harm in trying the dealer but please share your experience with getting this resolved. It is what I would call a false positive alarm as it indicates there's an imminent collision when there is really none. Mine is a brand new vehicle too and so it can't be an issue with the windshield. Something is not right either in the camera that sits at the center top of the windshield or the sensor that's behind the Honda logo close to the bumper.

Good to know at least someone else is having the same issue

I’m having the issue as well. I get a false reading on the same stretch of road a few times a week. It’s on a curve as well.

Sounds like this might be an issue. At least its not oil dilution or lack of heat :laugh:

I've also seen the brake warning appear when driving on curves with a car approaching from the opposite direction. It flashes and goes away. In the future perhaps Honda can combine information from the LKAS tech used to read lane markings to avoid this false alarm.

I have the same issue with my 19 EXL. No problems with my wife's 17 CRV.

Has been in to the dealer twice. They can't replicate so don't have any answers. It is erratic, but sounds like what you describe above.

If anyone has had a dealer fix theirs I would love to know what they did.

Its definitely oversensitive. On a 2 lane road I usually just turn it off- the button is all the way to the left of the steering wheel. The wheel shake your feeling is lane departure - that gets turned off as well for me.

2017 Touring bought used with 13k.
Same issue here.
Driving down a two lane road and a car coming in the other direction causing the brake light to flash.
Not all the time but enough that its annoying.

2019 Elite....have the same issue. I've tried different settings on short distance and setting the width of the lane to wide. Still radar reacts to curves...not sure if fixable, this is not Tesla tech. :)

I’ve got this issue on my 2019 exl. The big orange brake warning light comes on and the steering wheel shakes. There is no rhyme or reason to it. Can be on a straight or curved road. It’s very infrequent, but when it does it, it’s a bit startling, which is not what you want when you are behind the wheel. It’s going in for the second time tomorrow, it can’t be right that it comes on like that. My guess is the sensors and or the camera need to be recalibrated or reangled, I’ll report back, but dealer is not getting away with we found nothing like last time.

CMBS is not the same thing as lane departure warning. What is the exact problem?

Sleep, I have the same issue on my 2020 EX-L. Yes, it is CMBS. NOT lane departure. On a curvy road, for example, the road curving to the right, I'm guessing the "sensor(s)" for lack of a better term, are angled straight relative to the front of the car. Thus an oncoming car in the opposite lane "appears" to my car as if it's directly in front of it. The oncoming car is detected as a hazard and the system signals the orange BRAKE light in the instrument cluster. Does this explain it better? Thanks.

I’ve had it happen on curves and straightaways. I got my car back from the dealer, sure enough, they found nothing, say it’s normal, even though it might be annoying. Could be light reflecting off the sensor, which is behind the emblem in the grill, hard to believe Honda lets this kind of thing out the door where you get false warnings that shake your wheel And they call it normal. It’s bs and they just don’t know how to fix/prevent it. I’ve had similar issues with the auto high beams, which come on at wrong times and don’t go off quick enough.

not impressed with honda tech.
