Kia Sportage: Driving your vehicle / Lane departure warning system (LDW)

Kia Sportage QL (2015-2023) Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Lane departure warning system (LDW)

This system detects the lane with a sensor at the front windshield and notifies you if it detects that your vehicle leaves the lane.

WARNING - LDWS Alert

The LDWS is a supplemental system and only intended to provide you with information regarding your vehicle's position on the roadway. Upon receiving an LDWS alert, you must take the necessary steps to maintain control of your vehicle. The LDWS does not provide any steering inputs into the vehicle for you. It can be dangerous to make a large sudden steering input in response to an alert, since that could result in loss of control.

To operate the LDWS, press the button with the engine start/stop button in the ON position. The indicator illuminates white on the cluster. To cancel the LDWS, press LDWS button again.

The indicator on the cluster will go off.

If the system detects that your vehicle is leaving the lane when the LDWS is operating and vehicle speed exceeds 40 mph (64 kph), the warning operates as follows:

■ Left lane departure warning

■ Right lane departure warning

1. Visual warning

If you leave a lane, the lane you cross will blink (yellow) and LDWS indicator will blink green on LCD during max 3 seconds.

2. Auditory warning

If you leave the lane, the warning sound operates for maximum 3 seconds.

The color of the symbol will change depending on the condition of the LDWS system.

- White color : When you activate the lane departure warning system by pressing the LDWS button, system operating conditions are not satisfied or the sensor does not detect the lane line
- Green color : When you activate the lane departure warning system by pressing the LDWS button, system operating conditions are satisfied and the sensor detects the lane line
