Repairer Driven News: 2020 Honda CR-V

Repairer Driven News (RDN) released an article on the changes to the 2020 CR-V. The Honda CR-V now comes standard with Honda Sensing for all trim packages.

This means that 90% of their entire vehicle line up is equipped with this system. With more advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), it is even more important to follow OEM procedures for calibrating these systems. In an earlier position statement, Honda states: “The proliferation of electronic control systems has increased the number of potential DTCs beyond the point where a dashboard indicator can be installed and/or illuminated for every DTC. Dashboard indicators are intended for driver notification, not vehicle diagnostics.”

Honda also stresses the importance of aiming and calibration when there is damage to the front bumper/grille and windshield area. This is because Honda Sensing relies heavily on millimeter-wave radar and cameras that can often be affected by a collision and during the repair process.

The article states to search the ServiceExpress website using the keyword “Aiming” to find calibration and aiming procedures for ADAS.
