Honda is a recognized leader in the auto industry for safety technology. There are a number of innovative safety aids installed on many of Honda's cars. From the 2018 model year on, one useful safety feature that a vehicle may have is parking sensors. Parking sensors are typically located in the front and back of the Honda. When activated, they can help you park and safely maneuver to avoid hitting people, cars, and other objects. By helping you avoid accidents, parking sensors can also mitigate costly damage and repairs.

What Are Honda Parking Sensors?

The Honda parking sensor system is standard on some models and trim levels. Sensors located on both ends of the car detect objects that are close to your vehicle. The sensors can detect both mobile and stationary objects that you are in danger of hitting. If you are trying to park with an object in the way, the parking sensor system produces an audible warning to let you know that your vehicle is dangerously close to the object. The closer your Honda moves to the object, the louder the beep will become.

While Honda largely had safety in mind when creating the parking sensor system, it didn't neglect aesthetics. The parking sensors are specially designed to match the exterior paint color of the model that you're driving to create a seamless look and avoid drawing attention.

Turning Honda Parking Sensing on or off

How To Activate the Parking Sensors

You can control the Honda Parking Sensors through a button to the left of your steering wheel. It is depicted by the letter "P" and a cone icon. All you have to do is press the button to turn the parking sensors on. You'll see a green light illuminate on the button to let you know that the sensors are active. The green light will go off when you turn the parking sensors off.

Turning Off the Parking Sensors

While the Honda parking sensors are helpful in many situations, there are times when you may want or need to deactivate the system, such as when you are having your car towed. Turning off the parking sensors is just as simple as turning them on. To start, turn off your vehicle. Next, press the button while you restart the car. Keep holding the button for about 10 seconds. The button will beep, and you'll see a blinking light. Release the button and press it again quickly to turn off the sensors.
