    Hi, I've got a pesky AFS light on my 2.2 CR-V ex, I believe its to do with the headlight cornering?

    Has anyone else had any experience with AFS? I may be selling her due to needing something a bit bigger, and would feel bad trying to sell it with a fault (air con condenser to fix too!).

    AFS is Adaptive Front Lighting System. I think you would need to get it connected to HDS, it may just need reinitialising.

    Actually, if you've got the Handbook there may be a documented "Unit Learning Procedure"

    Yeah, that kinda ties in with needing a "re-initialisation".

    Hopefully, shocks on both sides were replaced together, right?

    Yes, both fronts were replaced, I've left it quite a while before asking the garage if it was related, they just said they wouldn't let the car go out with an AFS fault on. Thanks for informing me about possible initialisation, its a good avenue to explore

    I found an initialization procedure by googling, came up on Acura forums. Tried it and it doesnt work ( not specific for CR-V i know, but I think it only works on new kit)
    Theres some interesting info on there regarding the AFS, with people cleaning out the sensors attached to the suspension. I had a look at mine, and theres an oil leak ( I think from the aux belt area) all over the one sensor, maybe this could be leaking into the levelling sensor on the front?

    I wonder if a obd scanner would give a bit more in depth info???

    A generic OBD scanner don't always provide information in depth, ideally you need a HDS.
