Lane Keeping Alert

Principle of Operation


  • The system does not relieve you of your responsibility to drive with due care and attention.
  • At all times you are responsible for controlling your vehicle, supervising the system and intervening if required.
  • If the sensor becomes blocked the system may not function.
  • The sensor may incorrectly track lane markings such as other structures or objects. This can result in a false or missed warning.
  • In cold and severe weather conditions the system may not function. Rain, snow, spray and large contrasts in lighting can all influence the sensor.
  • The system will not operate if the sensor cannot track the road lane markings.
  • The system may not operate in areas during roadwork construction.
  • The system may not operate on roads with sharp bends or narrow lanes.
  • Do not carry out windshield repairs in the immediate area surrounding the sensor.
  • If your vehicle has a suspension kit not approved by us, the system may not function correctly.

Note: Keep the windshield free from obstructions such as bird droppings, insects and snow or ice.

Note: The system may assist you when driving on fast main roads and freeways.

Note: The system may not operate during hard braking or acceleration and when you are intentionally steering your vehicle.

Note: The system will operate with a minimum of one tracked lane marking.

Note: The system will only operate above vehicle speeds of approximately 40 mph (65 km/h).

The sensor is located behind the interior mirror. It continuously monitors conditions to alert you of unintentional lane drifting at high speeds.

The system will automatically detect and track the lane markings on the road. If your vehicle unintentionally drifts toward the road lane markings, a warning will be shown in the display. There is also a warning given in the form of a vibration felt through the steering wheel.

System Warnings

A column of lane markings are displayed either side of the vehicle graphic.

The lane markings are color coded as follows:

  • Green: The system is ready to warn you of any unintentional lane departure.

  • Gray: The relevant lane boundary will be suppressed.

Instances where a lane boundary may be suppressed:

  • Lane markings on the road may not be detected by the sensor.
  • You turn the direction indicator for that side of your vehicle on.

  • Your vehicle speed is outside the operating limits.
