Using information from the camera 1, the function triggers a corrective action on the vehicle steering system if a continuous or broken line is crossed without the direction indicator lights having been 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

Before activating the function, from the “Vehicle” mode on the multimedia screen 2, press the “Driving assistance” menu then the “Lane keeping system” menu and select “Lane crossing prevention”.

Press the 3 switch to activate the function.

The message “Lane keeping system activated” and the “” warning light are displayed on the instrument panel and the 3 switch warning light illuminates.

When lane departure prevention is activated, it incorporates the function “Lane departure warning”, even if it is not selected on the multimedia screen LANE DEPARTURE WARNING.

If no side function is selected in the “Lane keeping system” menu, when the 3 switch is pressed the message “Lane keeping system not configured” is displayed on the instrument panel. The 3 switch warning light remains switched off.

To deactivate the function, press the 3 switch or deselect “Lane crossing prevention” in the “Lane keeping system” menu.

Warning light goes out on the instrument panel.

The 3 switch warning light goes out and the message “Lane keeping system deactivated” is displayed on the instrument panel when the 3 switch is pressed or when all of the side functions are deselected in the “Lane keeping system” menu.

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 4 are displayed in grey on the instrument panel.

The function is set to operate when the vehicle speed is between approximately 40 mph (65 km/h) and 93 mph (150 km/h) or 99 mph (160 km/h), depending on the vehicle, and the warning light and the left-hand or right-hand line indicators 4 appear in white.

The function reacts when the vehicle crosses a line without the indicator lights having been activated.

In these cases:

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

- the warning light and the indicator 4 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 4 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 control” 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, a warning sound is emitted, the 4 indicator light on the side of the line concerned flashes and the warning light shows orange until control is taken of the vehicle again.

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

Temporarily not available

The system will cease to be available if:

- 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;

- strong acceleration;

- emergency braking;

- the lane width changes;

- the active emergency braking system is triggered.

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.

Adjustment

To access the multimedia screen function settings 2, refer to the multimedia instructions:

- “Alert vibration”: adjust the “Lane departure warning” function steering wheel vibration level;

- “Lane departure anticipation”: adjust the line detection sensitivity level. To do this, select:

- “Late”: line detected when crossing;

- “Standard”: line detected on approach;

- “Early”: line detected nearby.

Please refer to the multimedia instructions for further information.

Operating faults

When the system detects an operating fault, the left-hand and right-hand line indicators and the warning light remain in grey on the instrument panel.

In some cases, they are accompanied by:

- the message “Driving assist unavailable”;

- the warning light and the message “Check Driving assist” or the message “Check Front camera”.

Consult an approved dealer.

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, uneven road surface, etc.) ;

- 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 function “Lane crossing prevention” may trigger 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.).
