What is Lane Keep Assist?

Part of the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver assist features, the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) is designed to alert you when your vehicle begins to drift from its lane. This system can help keep you safe on Jackson streets as well as out on I-55. Let the experts at Patty Peck Honda fill you in on what Lane Keeping Assist does and how it works on new Honda vehicles.

How Does Lane Keep Assist Work?

The Honda Lane Keeping Assist System uses a sensor camera mounted behind the rearview mirror to scan road markings, and will relay visual and tactile alerts to notify you if you begin to drift from your lane without signaling. When your vehicle starts to drift, the Lane Departure warning appears in the multi-information display, and the steering wheel will vibrate to alert you. The Lane Keeping Assist System can also automatically provide steering input to help keep the car in the middle of the detected lane.

Can I Turn Lane Keep Assist Off?

There may be times when you’d prefer to deactivate the Lane Keeping Assist System, and as with other Honda Sensing® driver assist features, it’s easy to turn off Lane Keeping Assist if you wish. Here’s how:

  • Press the MAIN button on the steering wheel until you see LKAS on the multi-information display
  • Press LKAS
  • You’ll see lane outlines on the display (dotted lines turn solid when the system is ready)
  • Press the MAIN or LKAS button to turn off the system

What is Honda Sensing®?

The Honda Sensing® is a suite of safety and driver assist systems that are standard or optional on most new Honda vehicles, like the Accord, Civic, and Pilot. In addition to Lane Keeping Assist, Honda Sensing® also includes:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Honda LaneWatch
  • Cross-Traffic Monitor
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights

Of note is the fact that the Honda Sensing® Lane Keeping Assist System is one of the features that is not offered with Toyota Safety Sense. TSS offers a Lane Departure Alert, but it doesn’t apply steering assist that helps to keep your car centered in its lane.
