4 Wheel Active Steer (4WAS) system (if so equipped)

4 Wheel Active Steer (4WAS) system (if so equipped)  - Starting and driving - Infiniti G Owners Manual - Infiniti G

The 4 Wheel Active Steer (4WAS) system is an electronically controlled four-wheel steering system.

Depending on the vehicle speed and steering angle, the angles of the front and rear wheels are adjusted by the 4WAS system to help improve driving performance.

If a malfunction occurs in the system, the 4WAS function will stop but the ordinary two-wheel steering system will operate normally. The У4WASФ warning light will illuminate. If the light illuminates while you are driving, contact an INFINITI retailer for repair.

The steering wheel may be slightly turned even when driving on a straight road due to a protection mechanism for the 4WAS system. This is not a malfunction. The steering wheel will return to the normal position after the protection mechanism deactivates.

The protection mechanism activates under the following conditions: . The steering wheel is operated forcibly when it is hard to operate or the tires are blocked by obstacles.

Х The steering wheel is continuously operated when the vehicle is parked or being driven at extremely low speed.

Х The steering wheel is forcibly turned beyond its operation limits.

Х The battery voltage is reduced.

Repeated steering maneuvers that may activate the protection mechanism will damage the 4WAS system.

WARNING
The 4WAS system, although a sophisticated device, cannot prevent accidents resulting from careless or dangerous driving techniques.
Ultimately the responsibility for safety of self and others rests in the hands of the driver. Therefore only through attentive and careful driving methods can the 4WAS system be fully appreciated and safety optimized.
