  • 5

Using information from the 1 camera, the function triggers corrective action on the vehicle steering system when a continuous or broken line is crossed or when approaching the roadside (divider, barrier, pavement, embankment, etc.) without the direction indicator lights being activated.

Location of the camera 1

Make sure the windscreen is not obscured (dirt, mud, snow, condensation etc.).

You can retake control of the vehicle at any time by operating the steering wheel.

This function is an additional driving aid. This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

Activation/deactivation

To activate the function, press the 2 switch as many times as required to select “Lane Keeping Assist” on the instrument panel.

The “Lane Keeping activated” message and “” warning light are displayed on the instrument panel.

When Lane Keeping Assist is activated, the “Lane Departure Warning” function is automatically activated. LANE DEPARTURE WARNING.

To disable the function, press the 2 switch as many times as required to select “Lane Keeping deactivated” on the instrument panel.

Warning light goes out on the instrument panel.

Note: deactivating the “Lane Keeping Assist” function causes deactivation of the “Lane Departure Warning” function.

Each time the vehicle is started, the function continues the mode saved the last time the engine was stopped.

Operation

When the function is activated, the warning light and the left and right lines 3 are displayed in grey on the instrument panel.

The function is set to operate when the vehicle speed is between approximately 43 mph (70 km/h) and 112 mph (180 km/h) and if the warning light and left-hand and right-hand line indicators 3 appear in white.

The function operates if the vehicle breaches a line or if the vehicle approaches the roadside (divider, barrier, pavement, embankment, etc.) without the direction indicator lights being activated.

In these cases:

- the function triggers an action on the vehicle’s steering system to correct the vehicle trajectory;

- the 3 indicator on the side of the breached line turns to yellow on the instrument panel.

Note: on bends, the function allows for slightly cutting the bend.

If the corrective action on the steering system is not sufficient, the warning light and the indicator 3 on the side of the breached line turn to red on the instrument panel, accompanied by a vibration on the steering wheel.

Special cases

When using the function:

- If the system can no longer detect any action by the driver on the steering wheel, the warning light appears in orange on the instrument panel, accompanied by the message “Keep hands on steering wheel” and an audible warning.

The audible warning is emitted along with the warning light and message until the driver takes control;

- if the system is active for too long, an audible warning is emitted and the indicator 3 on the side of the line concerned flashes until the driver takes control.

You can interrupt the trajectory correction at any time by moving the steering wheel.

Temporarily not available

- Very fast lane departure;

- driving continuously on a line;

- four seconds approximately after changing lanes;

- tight bends;

- impaired visibility;

- activation of one of the direction indicator lights;

If the function is unavailable, the warning light and the left/right correction warning lights 3 appear in grey on the instrument panel.

Conditions for non-activation of the system

The system cannot be activated when:

- reverse gear is engaged;

- the field of vision of the camera is obstructed;

- the û warning light is displayed.

The warning light and the left/right line warning lights are displayed in grey on the instrument panel.

This function is an additional driving aid. This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

System servicing/repairs

- In the event of an impact, the camera alignment may be changed, and its operation may consequently be affected. Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.

- Any work in the area where the camera is located (repairs, replacements, windscreen modifications etc.) must be carried out by a qualified professional.

Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.

In the event of system disturbance

Some conditions can disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:

- windscreen obscured (by dirt, ice, snow, condensation etc.);

- a complex environment (tunnel etc.);

- poor weather conditions (snow, rain, hail, black ice etc.) ;

- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);

- the road markings are irregular or difficult to distinguish (e.g. partially erased, excessive spacing, distorted road surface) ;

- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction etc.);

- the road is narrow, winding or undulating (tight bends etc.);

- closely following a vehicle travelling in the same lane.

In this case, the “Lane Keeping Assist” may react incorrectly or not at all.

Risk of unwanted, incorrect correction or no correction of trajectory.

Deactivating the function

You must disable the function if:

- the area of the camera has been damaged (on the windscreen side or the interior rear-view mirror side);

- the road is slippery (snow, black ice, aquaplaning, gravel etc.) ;

- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);

- the windscreen is cracked or distorted (do not carry out windscreen repairs in this area; have it changed by an Authorised Dealer);

- the vehicle is towing a trailer or a caravan;

- the vehicle is entering an area with several surface markings (an area with road works etc.).
