Lane keeping system

WARNING: The system is designed to aid the driver. It is not intended to replace the driver’s attention and judgment. The driver is still responsible to drive with due care and attention.

The system detects unintentional drifting toward the outside of the lane and alerts and/or aids the driver to stay in the lane through the steering system and instrument cluster display. The system automatically detects and tracks the road lane markings using a camera that is mounted behind the interior rear view mirror.

Note: The system needs to be activated by the driver at each key cycle.

Note: The system works above 40 mph (64 km/h).

Note: The system works as long as one lane marking can be detected by the camera.

Note: If the camera is blocked or if the windshield is damaged, the system may not function.

Note: When Aid mode is on and the system detects no driver steering activity for a short period after system activation, the system alerts the driver to put their hands on the steering wheel. The system may detect a light touch or grip on the steering wheel as hands-off driving.

Switching the System On and Off

Switching the System On and Off

To turn the system on, the button must be pressed each time the vehicle is started. The system can be turned off by pressing the button again.

Note: The system is defaulted to off each time the vehicle is started, unless a MyKey® is detected. If a MyKey® is detected, the system is defaulted to on and the mode is set to Alert.

Note: If a MyKey® is detected, pressing the button will not affect the on/off status of the system. Only the Mode, Sensitivity and Intensity settings can be changed when a MyKey® is present.

System Settings

The system has three optional setting menus available. To view or adjust them, select Settings > Vehicle Settings > Driver Assist > Lane Keeping Sys in the left-hand instrument cluster display using the OK button on the steering wheel. The last-known selection for each of these settings is stored by the system. You do not need to readjust your settings each time you turn on the system.

Mode: This setting allows the driver to select which of the system features will be enabled and turned on when the button is pressed.

• Alert only – Provides a steering wheel vibration when an unintended lane departure is detected.
• Aid only – Provides a steering input toward the lane center when an unintended lane departure is detected.
• Alert + Aid

Sensitivity: This setting affects where in the lane a warning is provided (e.g. the increased sensitivity setting will move the warning zones in closer). This setting does not impact the aid mode.

• Normal
• Increased

Intensity: This setting affects the intensity of the steering wheel vibration used for the alert mode. This setting does not impact the aid mode.

• Low
• Medium
• High

System Display

When the system is turned on, an overhead graphic of a vehicle with lane markings

When the system is turned on, an overhead graphic of a vehicle with lane markings will be displayed in the left-hand instrument cluster display. If the aid mode is selected when the system is switched on, arrows will be shown with the lane markings.

When the system is turned off, the lane marking graphics will not be displayed.

Note: The overhead vehicle graphic may still be displayed if adaptive cruise control is enabled.

While the system is on, the color of the lane markings will change to indicate the system status.

Gray: Indicates that the system is temporarily unable to provide a warning or intervention on the indicated side(s). This may be because:

• the vehicle is under the activation speed
• the turn indicator is active
• the vehicle is in a dynamic maneuver
• the road has no or poor lane markings in the camera field-of-view
• the camera is obscured or unable to detect the lane markings due to environmental conditions (e.g. significant sun angles or shadows, snow, heavy rain, fog), traffic conditions (e.g. following a large vehicle that is blocking or shadowing the lane), or vehicle conditions (e.g.

poor headlamp illumination).

See Troubleshooting for additional information.

Green: Indicates that the system is available or ready to provide a warning or intervention, on the indicated side(s).

Yellow: Indicates that the system is providing or has just provided a lane keeping aid intervention.

Red: Indicates that the system is providing or has just provided a lane keeping alert warning.

The system can be temporarily disabled at any time by the following:

• Quick braking
• Fast acceleration
• Using the turn signal indicator
• Evasive steering maneuver
