What is the difference between cruise control and ACC?

What is the difference between traditional cruise control and Honda’s Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)? As part of the Honda Sensing® suite, this driver-assistive technology takes cruise control to the next level while also helping keep South Dakota’s roadways safer. Whether you travel for work or enjoy hitting the interstate for family road trips, ACC makes driving easier and less tiring. Like regular cruise control, Adaptive Cruise Control is designed to maintain a constant cruise speed; however, Honda’s ACC system also allows you to set a following interval for the vehicles in front of you. Join Vern Eide Honda in Sioux Falls as explore how to use Adaptive Cruise Control, what is Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, and which Honda models have Adaptive Cruise Control.

How does Honda’s ACC system work?

Honda’s ACC system employs a radar unit mounted at the front of the vehicle and a windshield-mounted camera to gauge the distance of vehicles in front of you. The system will then set the appropriate throttle position and can even apply braking to maintain your desired following interval between you and the vehicle ahead. To engage Honda’s ACC system, follow the steps below:

  1. Press the MAIN button on your steering wheel.
  2. ACC will appear in the instrument panel, along with Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).
  3. The cruise speed can be set while driving below 25 MPH or even while the vehicle is stopped with your foot on the brake pedal.
  4. Press the SET/- button on your steering wheel.
  5. The ACC system will set the cruise speed to 25 MPH, by default.
  6. To set the cruise speed for more than 25 MPH just press the SET/- button again when you’ve reached your desired speed.

How do you change the distance setting on the Honda ACC system?

Honda’s ACC system will display your set speed within the instrument panel along with a vehicle icon that has up to four bars indicating the following interval between your Honda and the vehicle ahead—the more bars, the further the distance. To change the distance setting on your ACC system just press the button with a vehicle and four bars behind it (or the interval button) found on your steering wheel and toggle between four distance settings: short, middle, long, and extra long.

How do you reset Adaptive Cruise Control?

In order to reset Honda’s ACC system, simply press and hold down the interval button (vehicle with four bars behind it) for approximately one second and Cruise Mode Selected will appear in the instrument panel. Press and hold the interval button again to reset the Adaptive Cruise Control feature.

 

How do you get Adaptive Cruise Control to turn off?

You can turn off Honda’s ACC system in one of three ways:

  • Press the CANCEL button on the steering wheel.
  • Press the MAIN button on the steering wheel.
  • Tap/step on the brake pedal.

Please note: If your ACC system is equipped with Low-Speed Follow and has come to a complete stop, depressing the brake pedal will not turn off Adaptive Cruise Control.
