1Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)  
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 Driver Information Interface Warning and  
Information Messages P. 122  
Steering input assist  
The system applies torque to the steering to keep the vehicle between the left  
and right lane lines. The applied torque becomes stronger as the vehicle gets  
closer to either of the lane lines.  
Tactile, audible and visual alerts  
Front sensor  
Do not place objects on the instrument panel.  
Objects may reflect on the front windscreen and  
prevent correct detection of the traffic lanes.  
Rapid vibrations on the steering wheel,  
audible and a warning display alert you  
that the vehicle is drifting out of a  
detected lane.  
Monitors the  
lane lines  
The LKAS only alerts you when lane drift is detected  
without a turn signal in use. The LKAS may not detect  
all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will  
vary based on weather, speed, and lane marker  
It is always your responsibility to safely operate the  
vehicle and avoid collisions.  
The LKAS is convenient when it is used on motorways  
or a dual carriage way.  
The LKAS may not work properly or may work  
improperly under the certain conditions:  
2 LKAS Conditions and Limitations P. 609  
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.  
You can read about handling information for the  
camera equipped with this system.
