When the System Does Not Seem To Work Properly

If the LDW symbol does not appear:

○ The lane markings on the road may not be seen.
○ The camera sensor may be blocked by dirt, snow or ice.
○ The windshield may be damaged.
○ The weather may be limiting visibility.

This is normal operation; the vehicle does not need service. Clean the windshield.

WARNING

If the LDW camera sensor is blocked by dirt, snow, or ice, or if the windshield is damaged, it may not detect a vehicle ahead. LDW may not help avoid a collision under these conditions. Do not rely on LDW when the camera is blocked by snow, ice, or dirt. Keep the windshield clean.

WARNING

If the headlamps are not cleaned or properly aimed, the LDW system may not detect lanes ahead. LDW may not help avoid a collision under these conditions. Keep the headlamps clean and properly aimed.

LDW warnings may occasionally occur due to tar marks, shadows, cracks in the road, or other road imperfections. This is normal system operation, the vehicle does not need service.
