Hyundai Genesis: Advanced smart cruise control system / Sensor to detect distance to the vehicle ahead

The Smart Cruise Control uses a sensor to detect distance to the vehicle ahead.

Sensor warning message

If the sensor or cover is dirty or obscured with foreign matter such as snow, this message will appear. In this case, the system may not function temporarily, but it does not indicate a malfunction of the Smart Cruise Control System. Clean the sensor or cover by using a soft cloth.

SCC (Smart Cruise Control) malfunction message

The message will appear when the vehicle to vehicle distance control system is not functioning normally.

Take your vehicle to an authorized HYUNDAI dealer and have the system checked.


  • Do not install accessories around the sensor and do not replace the bumper by yourself. It may interfere with the sensor performance.
  • Always keep the sensor and bumper clean.
  • To prevent sensor cover damage from occurring, wash the car with a soft cloth.
  • Do not paint the sensor cover.
  • Do not damage the sensor or sensor area by a strong impact. If the sensor moves slightly off position, the Smart Cruise Control System will not operate correctly. If this occurs, have your vehicle checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
  • Use only a genuine HYUNDAI sensor cover for your vehicle.
