Precautions on LDW system

► This system is only a warning device to WARNING

► This system is only a warning device to inform the driver of a potential unintended lane departure. It will not steer the vehicle or prevent loss of control. It is the drivers responsibility to stay alert, drive safely, keep the vehicle in the traveling lane, and be in control of the vehicle at all times.
► The system will not operate at speeds below approximately 45 MPH (70 km/h) or if it cannot detect lane markers.
► If the LDW system malfunctions, it will cancel automatically, and the lane departure warning light (orange) will illuminate.
► If the lane departure warning light (orange) illuminates, pull off the road to a safe location and stop the vehicle. Turn the engine off and restart the engine. If the lane departure warning light (orange) continues to illuminate, have the system checked by an INFINITI retailer.
► Excessive noise will interfere with the warning chime sound, and the chime may not be heard. The system may not function properly under the following conditions:
► On roads where there are multiple parallel lane markers; lane markers that are faded or not painted clearly; yellow painted lane markers; non-standard lane markers; or lane markers covered with water, dirt, snow, etc.
► On roads where the discontinued lane markers are still detectable.
► On roads where there are sharp curves.
► On roads where there are sharply contrasting objects, such as shadows, snow, water, wheel ruts, seams or lines remaining after road repairs. (The LDW system could detect these items as lane markers.).
► On roads where the traveling lane merges or separates.
► When the vehicles traveling direction does not align with the lane marker.
► When traveling close to the vehicle in front of you, which obstructs the lane camera unit detection range.
► When rain, snow or dirt adheres to the windshield in front of the lane camera unit.
► When the headlights are not bright due to dirt on the lens or if the aiming is not adjusted properly.
► When strong light enters the lane camera unit. (For example, the light directly shines on the front of the vehicle at sunrise or sunset.).
► When a sudden change in brightness occurs. (For example, when the vehicle enters or exits a tunnel or under a bridge.)

LDW system operation

The LDW system provides a lane departure

The LDW system provides a lane departure warning function when the vehicle is driven at speeds of approximately 45 MPH (70 km/h) and above. When the vehicle approaches either the left or the right side of the traveling lane, a warning chime will sound and the lane departure warning light (orange) on the instrument panel will blink to alert the driver. The warning function will stop when the vehicle returns inside of the lane markers. The LDW system is not designed to warn under the following conditions.
► When you operate the lane change signal and change traveling lanes in the direction of the signal. (The LDW system will become operable again approximately 2 seconds after the lane change signal is turned off.).
► When the vehicle speed lowers to less than approximately 45 MPH (70 km/h).
► When the Blind Spot InterventionTM system activates an audible warning or brake control. After the above conditions have finished and the necessary operating conditions are satisfied, the LDW functions will resume.
