We just had our first major snow of the year here in the Chicago area, and my 2018 Kona Ultimate keeps indicating that my Forward Collision-Avoidance (FCA) system has been disable because the radar is blocked (by snow/ice I presume). Does anyone here know exactly where the radar for the FCA is located? I contacted my dealer and was told "somewhere behind the front bumper"...but I was hoping for a bit more of an exact location so that I know to keep that area clear of snow and ice in the future. Thanks in advance!

Hey LK65


I too got the same answer from my dealer but found out thru google it is the camera assembly on your windshield behind the rear view mirror...check out the link!!

Yes, I know about the camera...however the FCA system uses BOTH a camera (the one in the windshield) AND a radar sensor located in the grill (Thank you abjbrkt!!).

It will continue to be disabled until it is either cleared or cleaned. Subsequently, it's really it's not something you will need in snowy conditions. The brake application is abrupt when actuated and can cause a slide or skid on snow packed roads. The best thing to do is put it into early mode and hope you don't need it.

The sensor is located in the plastic black box below the bottom of the grill. Not in the grill. Go to the middle of the front grill and follow it down until you see the black box near the bottom.

Blessings and Peace
