auto controls activating without turning them on

(2017 Honda Ridgeline)
in Cave Creek, AZ on December 05, 2018
my 2017 ridgeline is acting very weird. the dealership can not find the issue. when the features like letting you know when you're out of your lane the wheel shakes. this happens without the feature being enabled.
it will flash warnings on the display so fast that I can not capture to show dealership. it slams on brakes when the cruise control is not activated.
totally frustrated, I cant be the only one with this happening. help.
How long have you had this problem? weeks

Unfortunately - it’s not going to be possible for us to offer any assistance with this matter .. The issue must be present before it can be diagnosed .. Perhaps a software update is in the making..

You can contact Honda Motors directly..

From page 483:

Press this button until the beeper sounds to switch the system on or off.
When the CMBSTM is off:
• The CMBSTM indicator in the instrument
panel comes on.
• Amessageonthemulti-informationdisplay
reminds you that the system is off.
The CMBSTM is in the previously selected ON or OFF setting each time you start the engine.

This number will get you to a panel of minimum wage operators the dealership to help you.

Seek guidance at your dealership. Take it from a Service Director of a Honda dealership.

It is also quite possible carefully reading the OWNERS MANUAL will be sufficient!

Those features are normal operating characteristics of Honda Sensing, and are automatically "on". The vehicle is functioning as designed. (Slamming of the brakes is the "Collision Mitigation Braking System" - CMBS)

Be advised that you should not have anything affixed to your windshield or mirror except what comes from the factory, as this can disrupt Sensing operation as well.
