LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

WARNING

The lane departure warning system is a driving aid only and remains the driver's responsibility to drive with due care and attention. Drive in a manner which is safe for the vehicle, its occupants, and the other road users. The driver should still observe all other road signs and road markings.

The lane departure warning button is located in the lower switch panel at the driver's side of the fascia. Press to disable or enable the lane departure warning system. See DRIVER CONTROLS.

When the system is enabled, an indicator lamp illuminates in the message center to confirm operation.

The vehicle's position within the lane displays graphically, in the icon. As the vehicle moves within the lane, the icon displays any change of direction and lane edges illuminate or change color. Green is used for tracking information. Red is used for warnings.

The lane departure warning system can also be switched off or on via the instrument panel menu. See DRIVER CONTROLS.

NOTES

When the ignition is switched off and on again, the lane departure warning system settings remain as previously set.

The lane departure warning system uses the forward-facing camera, located in the base of the rear-view mirror.

NOTES

Make sure the windshield area in front of the rear-view mirror is kept clean and free of obstructions, e.g., stickers, debris, mud, snow, ice, etc.

When the vehicle crosses either of the lane markings that it is traveling within, without activation of the appropriate turn signal, the system alerts the driver via the following methods:

  • Steering wheel vibration.

  • Red warning icons displayed in the message center.

NOTES

The lane departure warning system only provides warnings to the driver. The system does not assist in changing the direction of the vehicle, or operate any of the vehicle's systems.

NOTES

The lane departure warning system does not detect unmarked edges of the road.

The sensitivity of the system can be adjusted between High Sensitivity or Normal Sensitivity via Driving Assistance in the instrument panel menu. See DRIVER CONTROLS.

When set at Normal Sensitivity, the lane departure warning system is active between 37 mph (60 km/h) and 180 km/h (112 mph). Warnings are suppressed if the driver intervention is detected, as follows:

  • Operation of the accelerator pedal.

  • Significant movement of the steering wheel.

  • Operation of the brakes.

  • Activation of the turn signal.

When set at High Sensitivity, the lane departure warning system is active between 37 mph (60 km/h) and 112 mph (180 km/h). Warnings are not suppressed, except for when the appropriate direction indicator is active.

Lane Departure Warning limitations:
  • The lane in use must be wider than 8.2 ft (2.5 m).

  • Not active in off-road conditions.

The performance of the lane departure warning system may also be affected in the following conditions:

  • Driving in adverse conditions. For example, heavy fog, rain, snow, etc.

  • Driving over worn, damaged or temporary lane markings, e.g., road works, etc.

  • Driving toward very bright lights.

  • Driving very close to another vehicle.

  • Tight deviations of the roads and their gradients.

When the lane departure warning system detects a fault and/or is not available, then the general warning and information message (amber) is displayed in the message center. See GENERAL WARNING AND INFORMATION MESSAGE (AMBER).
