    Good morning. I was out and about this morning when I received multiple alerts requiring immediate attention. I drove straight to the dealership and left my new Clarity with the service advisor. They were backed up so I do not expected to hear anything until later this afternoon.
    Here are the alerts that popped up;
    Engine system problem
    Adaptive Cruise Control Problem
    RDM Problem
    Emission systems Problem.

    I am bewildered. Has anyone had experience like this with your Clarity?any input is appreciated,

    That's too bad. These things happen. Sometimes a sensor gets too hot and it triggers multiple alarms. Hopefully it's not your inverter - it could take awhile to reorder/replace it. However, once that's done - if that was the problem - you'd be good to go again for many, many miles.

    This is nothing (fortunately or unfortunately). Honda will be doing a recall. It has something to do with charging and Honda trying to alert the system when it is getting bad power. It will reset itself within 24 hours. I was getting this when I charged at home, but if I unplug the charger from the wall each time after charging it seems to have solved the problem (at least for the moment).

    I had a simiar issue. Plugged my car into a level 2 charging station (schneider electric-EV link). Car didnt want to take a charge and kept disconnecting. I kept telling the car to charge using the app. I got back into the car. Got a power system and engine malfunction light. It cleared itself up in 20 hours after a full recharge on my lvl 1 charger and when i brought it in to the dealer. Dealer said there was no error codes stored in the cars computer, and the lights went off on their own. Meh.

    This is a known problem and addressed by service bulletin 18-079

    Note: I believe it's a different problem from the charging alert. :-(

    Yes, SB 18-079 is the s/w fix from Honda. Lots of Honda dealers have never heard of it either, so be sure to alert your dealer. And take a look at the long thread about multiple system warnings on this forum too.
