Had this car at a lease since July 2018. I got about 40k miles flat on it. My lease is set to expire a month from now and of course I get 4 random warnings for the following

Adaptive cruise control, Forward collision mitigation system, Road departure avoidance system have been disabled and please contact the Honda dealer. I also got the supplemental restraint system warning.

so I take the car to the dealer and they tell me that it’s not a sensor issue and that I collided with something. So they want 1600 bucks to repair the radar which I’m not doing with them. I have another option to sell the car since my buyout is pretty low.

does anyone know of anyway to reset those warnings by any chance to see if they’ll come back? Like is there anyway to get rid of them without repairing the issue? These sensors have come up once about a year ago and the dealer found no issue and just reset them but now all the sudden there’s an issue.

Hi..I have a 2020 accord touring hybrid and this has happened to me several times. I can't tell you why but
I can tell you how to fix it. Simply disconnect your battery for 15 minutes. Reconnect. Start the car.
You will see after a minute of warnings it will say "systems initializing" continue driving. Go around the block or drive locally for a minute or 2. All systems should come back up. Hope it works for you. Good luck.
I didn't spend a penny fixing this

The battery disconnect doesn't always work. Trust me I know firsthand. Depending on what tripped, the only way to clear is for the HDS to be hooked up to the OBD2 port and systems reset and doesn't really cost the dealer anything, but charge for labor. An 85 minute job, and shouldn't even take that long, but milked and charged at 2 hours labor when in reality if it takes that long, tech could/should be doing something else while the HDS is resetting systems, but it is what it is.

I believe you but that is not what happened to me. Before I pay a dealership anything, It doesn't hurt anything or cost you anything to try that for anyone else who is followingu

I get that, was just typing out that the battery disconnect doesn't always work, you told the other user the fix is to disconnect the battery for 15 minutes. You should have worded it as a possible fix is to disconnect the battery for 15 minutes, not say that is the fix. Yes it worked for you in your situation, but no 2 situations are exact. Before I went to the dealer I did a battery disconnect, did a pin jumper through the OBD2 terminal, hooked up a not at all cheap code reader to clear codes (that cleared the codes, but immediately came back) and yet still had to go to the dealer as there is some proprietary information that only the HDS can clear.

I concur. But people should try it. It doesn't hurt. This is only a possible fix but it works for most people.
I'm just saying before you go doing all that other stuff. I hope this corrects my grammatical error.
Just trying to help.
