Advanced Driver Assistance Systems: 2022 Honda Civic

While many have noticed that advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are showing up on vehicles, there still is confusion on what is required of these systems after a collision occurs. The Ask I-CAR team frequently gets questions in regard to calibration of ADAS. Many of these questions can be answered simply by searching the OEM Calibration Requirements Search. However, there are some questions that may need more details than the calibration search provides. Let’s take a look at the 2022 Honda Civic ADAS.

The 2022 Honda Civic may be equipped with the following ADAS:

  • Adaptive lighting (Auto High-Beam Support System)
  • Lane Departure Warning (Lane Departure Warning/ Road Departure Mitigation)
  • Lane Keep Assist 1 (Lane Keeping Assist)
  • Lane Keep Assist 2 (Road Departure Mitigation)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (Traffic Sign Recognition System)
  • Blind Spot Detection (Blind Spot Information System)
  • Rear Cross Traffic (Cross Traffic Monitor)
  • Side View (LaneWatch)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (Adaptive Cruise Control)
  • Collision Warning (Collision Mitigation Braking System)
  • Collision Braking (Collision Mitigation Braking System)
  • Rear View (Rearview Camera System)
  • Park Assist (Parking and Back-Up Sensor System)

With all these systems comes multiple inputs (cameras and sensors).

Starting in the front bumper cover, there are 4 ultrasonic sensors for the park assist system. These sensors require initialization if replaced, or if the mounting location of the sensors are changed.

It is important to note that the 2022 Civic does not use a “millimeter wave radar” sensor behind the front bumper cover. On this vehicle, the forward facing-camera controls the systems that otherwise would’ve been controlled by the millimeter wave radar sensor.

Next, we move on to the windshield, where the forward-facing camera (Multipurpose Camera) is located. This camera controls the following systems:

  • Adaptive Lighting
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keep Assist (1 and 2)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Collision Warning
  • Collision Braking

There is a static and dynamic calibration procedure for the forward-facing camera. The service manual states to do either procedure, it is not required to do both.

On the passenger side of the vehicle is a camera located in the side mirror. This is the camera for the side view system, and it requires static calibration after certain events. The calibration procedure specifies the use of targets and other special tools.

Moving on to the deck lid/liftgate/tailgate where the back-up camera (Multi-View Rear Camera) is located. This camera is used for the rear view system and does not require calibration.

Lastly, is the rear bumper cover. The rear bumper cover has 4 ultrasonic sensors for the park assist system, and two radar sensors (BSI Radar Unit) for the blind spot detection and rear cross traffic system. The radar sensors are mounted on the lower quarter panel, behind the rear bumper cover. The park assist sensors require initialization if replaced or if the mounting location is changed. The radar sensors require static calibration after certain events.

This is just a brief overview of some of the different required procedures for the 2022 Civic. Always consult the OEM repair information to get the exact information and procedures required to service the ADAS.
