Front parking sensors randomly go off when stopped at a lights

Been driving my car for a couple of days now and today the front parking sensors randomly go off when stopped at a lights. Nothing is moving or coming close. Anyone else experience this?


Thanks

Yes, and for my 2.0t touring it seems to be related to drips/melting snow. When I park and wipe off the sensors I do not have the problem. Not good as it has been a particularly snowy winter with variable temperatures that go into the 30's and lots of slush that gets kicked up.

Has happened a few times, usually when it's snowing or slush on the roads. Then it happened today while stopped at a light in traffic. Dry and sunny day, and the car was washed earlier on as well so I know it wasn't dirty. It kept warning me an object was approaching and indicating from the passenger front. Dead stop in traffic so not sure what was triggering it.

I'm seeing this on my 2.0 Touring. I'm in Florida (so no snow) and its usually at a light with cars next to me. Seems kinda random.

Same here. The first couple of times I saw this happen it was snowy and the car had gotten dirty so I assumed it was this. Another time, it wasn't slushy/snowy out, but it was really really cold and the truck's exhaust in front of my car was coming out heavy so I assumed it was picking up on that. Since then though, it's happened randomly at stop lights and I'm not positive why. My previous Odyssey had front sensors and I don't recall them ever doing this, even in poor weather. I put in a couple of support tickets for a couple other ticks with my car, but forgot about this one. I think I'll make note of it with Honda.

I don't own an Accord Touring, but my BMW parking sensors have had this issue. There are two things I could suggest:

1. If you're in a cold climate, it's not just snow/ice/freezing rain that can trip them, but also build-ups of salt. Giving it a good cleaning with a wet cotton cloth fixed the problem.

2. If your steering wheel is not perfectly straight, the car will think that you're about to turn, and you can trip the sensors with cars in the next lane. Keeping your steering wheel straight fixes this.

Again, I don't own the Touring with parking sensors, but if those two things don't apply, I would take it to the dealership and have it looked at.

We just dropped the car off with the dealership this morning for this very issue.

Shot in Houston Tx, so snow or salt are not an issue.

Sorry for the portrait mode, wife shot the video ?.

Same thing happening here -- I assumed it was a sensitivity setting, as they work well when I expect them to (when parking) and seem to respond to car exhaust for some reason.
