STEERING ASSIST LIMITATIONS

WARNING

The sensors used by the steering assist system may become impaired by mud, rain, frost, ice, snow, road spray, etc. The steering assist system's ability to detect a vehicle in the driver’s blind spot may subsequently be affected and may give false indications.

Steering assist does not operate if:

  • Adaptive cruise control is not active.

  • The driver's door is open.

  • The vehicle is traveling at speeds higher than 112 mph (180 km/h).

  • The driver's hands are removed from the steering wheel.

  • The camera is obscured, e.g., by stickers, mud, or other debris.

  • The radar sensor is obscured, e.g., by stickers, mud, or other debris.

  • The lane boundaries in which the vehicle is traveling are not clear and visible to the camera.

  • The corner through which the vehicle is traveling is too tight.

  • There is a fault in the system.

Steering assist operates with a reduced level of performance and accuracy if:

  • Operation of the camera is impaired due to severe weather conditions, e.g., heavy rain, fog, snow, or ice.

  • Operation of the camera is impaired due to extreme sunlight.

  • Road markings, or in some cases a road edge, are not recognized on both sides of the lane in which the vehicle is traveling.
