I have the 2019 Honda Accord EX-L with ACC and Low Speed Follow and all the other goodies. My ACC works but LSF does not work and hasn't worked since I've had the car. I was told by a Honda Service Writer that I could unhook the battery terminals from the battery, touch them together for 20 seconds and that this would reset the features(LSF). Has anyone heard of this as a fix? Thanks!

First off welcome to the site glad to have you join us.

Regarding disconnecting the battery and touching "them" (I guess they were meaning the cables + to -) never heard of that. Your car is new and still under warranty... if it's never worked and you are sure it's on/activated/engaged then they (Honda Service Writer or Technician) should do what it takes to correct the issue... if it's touching the cables together let them do it... w/all the electronics in these cars I would let them touch the cables together (even though my mind tells me nothing should go wrong let the burden be on them).

Are you sure you're in Adaptive Cruise Control Mode (ACC) and not just regular Cruise Control (CC) mode?

The reason I ask is when in ACC mode the car will slow down and speed up based on the speed of the car in front of you. If this is happening then the Low Speed Follow (LSF) is working. In regular CC mode the car doesn't adjust the speed no matter what speed the car in front is doing, and LSF is disabled.

Also, if you see the words "Cruise Control" next to the letters "ACC" on your dash, then you are in regular CC mode. If those words aren't there, then you are in the full ACC mode.

Page 531 of Owner's Manual describes how to switch between ACC and CC modes.

P.S., I would not touch the two battery terminals together as that is a dangerous thing to do!
