What is Lane Keep Assist?

If you’ve recently purchased a new Honda, or even a recent year used Honda, you’ll have access to Honda Sensing®, a suite of innovative safety and driver-assist features. One of these features is Lane Keep Assist (LKAS), but what is Lane Keep Assist? This technology alerts you when it detects your vehicle drifting into a different lane. Keep reading with VIP Honda to learn more about how Lane Keep Assist works.


How Does Lane Keep Assist Work?

When you’re traveling throughout the Union area, Lane Keeping Assist scans the road marks and used both visual and tactile alerts to notify you when you start drifting into a different lane without signaling. You’ll see a Lane Departure warning appear on the multi-information display, and the steering wheel will also vibrate to grab your attention. The Lane Keeping Assist System can also gently steer you back into the proper lane if you don’t take action first. 

Can Lane Keep Assist Be Turned Off? 

You can turn off Lane Keep Assist, as well as other Honda Sensing® features. Here’s how you can disable the system:

  • 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®? 

Honda Sensing® is a group of innovative, driver-assist features that either come standard or optional on most new Honda vehicles. In addition to LKAS, Honda Sensing® also provides South Plainfield drivers with the following features: 

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