Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)*  
1Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)*  
Provides steering input to help keep the vehicle in the middle of a detected lane and  
provides audible and visual alerts if the vehicle is detected drifting out of its lane.  
Important Safety Reminders  
The LKAS is for your convenience only. It is not a  
substitute for your vehicle control. The system does  
not work if you take your hands off the steering  
wheel or fail to steer the vehicle.  
2 Display Warning and Information  
Messages* P. 86  
Audible and visual alerts  
Beeps and a warning display alert  
you that the vehicle is drifting out of  
a detected lane.  
Steering input assist  
The system applies torque to the  
steering to keep the vehicle  
LKAS camera  
between the left and right lane  
lines. The applied torque becomes  
stronger as the vehicle gets closer to  
either of the lane lines.  
Monitors the lane  
lines  
LKAS only alerts you when lane drift is detected  
without a turn signal in use. LKAS may not detect all  
lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary  
based on weather, speed, and lane marker condition.  
It is always your responsibility to safely operate the  
vehicle and avoid collisions.  
The LKAS is convenient when it is used on freeways.  
LKAS may not work properly under certain  
conditions.  
2 LKAS Limitations P. 394  
When you operate the turn signals to change lanes, the system is suspended, and  
resumes after the signals are off.  
If you make a lane change without operating the turn signals, the LKAS alerts  
activate, and torque is applied to the steering.
