Forward Assist in my car doesn't work in cold weather - what is the problem?

Below 4C the forward lane assist camera refuses to function in my Honda Jazz so all lane guidance and other safety features refuse to function until the temperature rises above 5C. Please can you give me advice?

Safety systems such as this should perform in most weather conditions, but if any of the sensors or cameras are dirty or covered in moisture or frost this could prevent them from functioning correctly. We would suggest ensuring that the next time the temperature is sufficiently low that both the windscreen and any sensors inside and the vehicle are completely clear, and if the problem persists we would return to the dealer or take your issue to Honda UK.
