LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

WARNING

The lane departure warning system is a driving aid only. Responsibility remains the driver's to drive with due care and attention. Drive in a manner which is safe for the vehicle, its occupants, and 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 dashboard. Press to disable or enable the system. See DRIVER CONTROLS.

When the system is enabled, an icon 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 INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

NOTES

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

The 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.

The driver is alerted 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 one of 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 lane departure warning 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.
