    I took delivery of one of the first 2016 Civic Touring Sedans in October 2015.
    Except for some wild uncontrolled beeping from the menu system, I have had no problems with this car.
    About 5 months ago, just before it went out of Honda warranty at 35,900 miles, I asked the dealer to upgrade all the firmware.
    .
    I am a big fan of ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) and LSF (Low Speed Follow).
    But, recently I noticed that it no longer works the way it did. It now behaves like a dumb cruise control.
    Before I spend $$$ to have the dealer look at it, I'd like to make sure that I haven't disabled something accidentally.
    .
    Instead of seeing "ACC" and "LKAS" on my dashboard, all I get is a little box that says "Cruise Mode".
    The vehicle icon, distance bars, and "set speed" do not appear.

    I can't be certain whether this change occurred when the firmware was "updated" or before or after.

    What am I doing wrong?
    Do I have a service issue?
    Maybe the dealer installed the wrong firmware?
    What can I try?

    This may sound stupid but did you hit the acc/lkas buttons to turn them on?

    RTFM. There is a way to switch between ACC and normal cruise control.

    It's possible to switch between ACC and regular cruise control.

    Here is the page in the manual that explains how:

    Maybe you inadvertently switched the mode.

    It is quite possible that I turned it off without meaning to.
    I read pages 411 through 426, but I stopped when it became redundant.
    The page you quoted was 428. Doh!!
    Thanks for pointing me to the right place. I'll try it tomorrow.
