How do I fix a forward collision warning light failure on a Honda Accord?
How do I reset the forward collision warning system failure? I live in Michigan, and the winter flurries have begun. I was driving home after going to the bank today, and suddenly the forward collision warning light came on.
Forward collision warning (FCW) is a system that uses sensors, radars, or a camera to detect objects in front of your vehicle. Various factors may cause its failure.
The safest way to fix FCW failure on a Honda Accord is to take it to a mechanic to assess the issue.
Weather conditions like snow and rain can cause FCW failure and affect how the sensor or camera operates. The water drops can cause the camera to magnify and detect an object, which may amount to a false reading.
If your front bumper has been damaged, this may also affect the front camera’s ability to function correctly.
Take your car to a professional. They will have the proper equipment to scan the codes in your vehicle to detect what the exact issue is.
Driving around in the snow can be dangerous and often leads to accidents. To have peace of mind, consider adding coverage like collision or comprehensive.
