System Operation

Make sure that the LAS&LDWS OFF switch indicator light is turned off. When the LAS&LDWS OFF switch indicator light is turned on, press the switch and make sure that the switch indicator light turns off.

The LAS&LDWS indication (white) is displayed in the multi-information display, and the system goes on stand-by.

Drive the vehicle in the center of the vehicle lane while the system is on standby. When all of the following conditions are met, the LAS&LDWS indication (green) is displayed in the multi-information display, and the system becomes operational.

  • The engine is running.

  • The vehicle speed is about 60 km/h (37 mph) or faster.

  • The system detects white (yellow) lane lines on both the right and left sides.

  • The driver is operating the steering wheel.

  • The driving lane is neither narrow nor wide.

 

 


The LAS&LDWS indication is white when the system detects only a white (yellow) line on either the left or right, and the indication changes to green when the system detects white (yellow) lines on both the left and right sides.

The LAS&LDWS goes on stand-by status in the following cases:

  • The system cannot detect white (yellow) lane lines.

  • The vehicle speed is less than about 60 km/h (37 mph).

  • The ABS/TCS is operating.

  • The TCS is turned off.

    (If the TCS is turned off while the system is operational, a warning beep is heard and the system goes on standby.)

  • The vehicle is making a sharp curve.

  • The brake pedal is depressed.

  • The steering wheel is operated abruptly.

  • The width of a lane is excessively narrow or wide.

 


  • The LAS&LDWS does not operate until the system detects white (yellow) lane lines on either the left or right.

  • When the system detects a white (yellow) lane line on one side only, the system will not operate the steering wheel operation assist and the warning for the lane line on the side that is not being detected. The steering wheel operation assist and the warning is only for a lane deviation on the side that is being detected.

  • If the driver takes his or her hands off the steering wheel (not holding the steering wheel), the warning sound is activated and an alert is indicated in the multi-information display or the active driving display.

     

    If the steering wheel is held lightly, or depending on the road conditions, the system may detect that you have released the steering wheel (not holding the steering wheel) even if you are holding it, and display a message in the multi-information display or the active driving display.

  • The timing at which the lane departure warning is activated and the steering wheel operation assist is performed varies.

  • The following settings for the LAS&LDWS can be changed. Refer to Personalization Features (Search).

    • Steering operation assist operational/non-operational

    • Cancel sensitivity (likelihood of steering assist)

Vehicle lane line display

When the LAS&LDWS becomes operational while on standby, the vehicle lane lines are displayed in the multi-information display and the active driving display. In the vehicle lane lines display indicating the operation status, the color of the vehicle lane lines being detected changes to white.

(Stand-by status)

(Operational status)

Auto cancel

In the following cases, the LAS&LDWS is automatically canceled, the LAS&LDWS warning indication (amber) turns on, and an alert is displayed. When the LAS&LDWS become operational, the system turns back on automatically.

  • The temperature inside the camera is high or low.

  • The windshield around the camera is foggy.

  • The windshield around the camera is blocked by an obstruction, causing poor forward visibility.

Auto cancel of warning/steering assist

When the following operations are performed, the LAS&LDWS operation is canceled automatically. The LAS&LDWS resumes automatically after the operation.

  • The steering wheel is operated abruptly.

  • The brake pedal is operated.

  • The accelerator pedal is operated.

    (To cancel the automatic sensitivity cancel function, deselect “Cancel sensitivity” in the personalization features setting.)

  • The turn signal lever is operated.

  • The vehicle crosses a lane line.

 


  • After the operation, the LAS&LDWS operation may not operate for a period of 5 seconds at the most until the lane lines are detected.

  • Under the following conditions, the LAS&LDWS cancels the warning/steering assist automatically.

    • The driver takes his/her hands off the steering wheel.

      (The LAS&LDWS is designed to assist the driver's steering operation and it will resume operation automatically when the driver holds the steering wheel.)

    • The TCS OFF switch is pressed to cancel the TCS.

Steering operation assist OFF (non-operational)

The steering operation assist for the LAS&LDWS can be changed to non-operational (OFF).

Refer to Setting Change (Personalization Features) (Search).

When the steering operation assist has been changed to non-operational (OFF), the operation conditions and the display of the LAS&LDWS differ. Operate the system as follows:

System operation

Make sure that the LAS&LDWS OFF switch indicator light is turned off. When the LAS&LDWS OFF switch indicator light turns on, press the switch and make sure that the switch indicator light turns off.

Drive the vehicle in the center of the driving lane while the LAS&LDWS OFF switch indicator light is turned off.

The system becomes operational when all of the following conditions are met.

  • The system detects white (yellow) lane lines on both the right and left sides or on either side.

  • The vehicle speed is about 60 km/h (37 mph) or faster.

  • The vehicle is driven on a straight road or road with gentle curves.

  • The engine is running.

The LAS&LDWS goes on stand-by status in the following cases:

  • The system cannot detect white (yellow) lane lines.

  • The vehicle speed is less than about 60 km/h (37 mph).

  • The vehicle is making a sharp curve.

  • The vehicle is making a curve at an inappropriate speed.

 


  • The LAS&LDWS remains on stand-by until it detects white (yellow) lines on both the left and right sides, or on either side.

  • When the system detects a white (yellow) lane line on one side only, the system will not activate warnings for the lane line on the side that is not being detected.

  • The distance and warning sensitivity (likelihood of a warning) which the system uses to determine the possibility of a lane departure can be changed.

    Refer to Setting Change (Personalization Features) (Search).
