The system is designed to aid the driver. It is not intended to replace your attention and judgment. You are still responsible to drive with due care and attention.
Always drive with due care and attention when using and operating the controls and features on your vehicle.
At all times, you are responsible for controlling your vehicle, supervising the system and intervening, if required. Failure to take care may result in the loss of control of your vehicle, serious personal injury or death.
In cold and severe weather conditions the system may not function. Rain, snow and spray can all limit sensor performance.
The system will not operate if the sensor cannot track the road lane markings.
The sensor may incorrectly track lane markings as other structures or objects. This can result in a false or missed warning.
Large contrasts in outside lighting can limit sensor performance.
The system may not operate properly if the sensor is blocked. Keep the windshield free from obstruction.
If damage occurs in the immediate area surrounding the sensor, have your vehicle checked as soon as possible.
The sensor is located near the rear view mirror.
The system works above
40 mph (64 km/h).
The system works as long as the camera can detect one lane marking.
The system may not function if the camera is blocked or there is damage to the windshield.
When Aid mode is on and the system detects no steering activity for a short period, the system will alert you to put your hands on the steering wheel. The system may detect a light grip or touch on the steering wheel as hands off driving.
The system notifies you to stay in your lane through the steering system and the instrument cluster display when the front camera detects an unintentional drift out of your lane is likely to occur. The system automatically detects and tracks the road lane markings using a camera mounted behind the interior rear view mirror.
Switching the System On and Off
The system on or off setting is stored until it is manually changed, unless a MyKey is detected. If the system detects a MyKey it defaults to on and the mode is set to Alert.
If a MyKey is detected, pressing the button will not affect the on or off status of the system.
Press the button on the steering wheel stalk to switch the system on or off.
The system has optional setting menus available. The system stores the last-known selection for each of these settings. You do not need to readjust your settings each time you turn on the system.
Mode: This setting allows you to select which of the system features you can enable.
Alert only – Provides a steering wheel vibration when the system detects an unintended lane departure.
Aid only – Provides an assistance steering torque input toward the lane center when the system detects an unintended lane departure.
Alert + Aid – Provides an assistance steering torque input toward the lane center. If your vehicle continues drifting out of the lane, the system provides a steering wheel vibration.
The alert and aid diagrams illustrate general zone coverage. They do not provide exact zone parameters.
Intensity: This setting affects the intensity of the steering wheel vibration used for the alert and alert + aid modes. This setting does not affect the aid mode.
When you switch on the system, an overhead graphic of a vehicle with lane markings will display in the information display. If you select aid mode when you switch on the system, a separate white icon will also appear or in some vehicles arrows will display with the lane markings.
When you switch off the system, the lane marking graphics will not display.
While the system is on, the color of the lane markings will change to indicate the system status.
Gray: Indicates that the system is temporarily unable to provide a warning or intervention on the indicated side(s). This may be because:
- Your vehicle is under the activation speed.
- The turn indicator is active.
- Your vehicle is in a dynamic maneuver.
- The road has no or poor lane markings in the camera field-of-view.
- The camera is obscured or unable to detect the lane markings due to environmental conditions (significant sun angles, shadows, snow, heavy rain or fog), traffic conditions (following a large vehicle that is blocking or shadowing the lane), or vehicle conditions (poor headlamp illumination).
See Troubleshooting for additional information.
Green: Indicates that the system is available or ready to provide a warning or intervention, on the indicated side(s).
Yellow: Indicates that the system is providing or has just provided a lane keeping aid intervention.
Red: Indicates that the system is providing or has just provided a lane keeping alert warning.
The system can be temporarily suppressed at any time by the following:
- Quick braking.
- Fast acceleration.
- Using the turn signal indicator.
- Evasive steering maneuver.
