DRIVER FATIGUE ALERT

The purpose of the driver fatigue alert feature is to evaluate driving technique for signs of driver fatigue.

When the feature determines if the driver is fatigued, the message center displays the warning, TAKE A BREAK!, for 1 minute, accompanied by an audible chime. When driving continues for more than 15 minutes after the first warning, without taking a break, a further warning is given. The warning continues until the OK button on the steering wheel menu control is pressed.

The driver fatigue alert feature is always active at vehicle speeds between 37 mph (60 km/h) and 112 mph (180 km/h).

The driver fatigue alert feature can be switched off via Driver Assistance in the instrument panel menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

When the driver fatigue alert feature develops a fault, a double warning icon is displayed in the message center. The driver fatigue alert feature is unavailable until the problem is rectified. When the fault does not clear after the ignition is switched off and on again, consult a retailer/authorized repairer.
