Hyundai Genesis: Driving your vehicle / Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

The Lane Keeping Assist System detects lane markers on the road, and assists the driver’s steering to help keep the vehicle between lanes.

When the system detects the vehicle straying from its lane, it alerts the driver with a visual and steering wheel vibration warning, while applying a slight counter-steering torque, trying to prevent the vehicle from moving out of its lane.


The lane keeping assist system is not a substitute for safe driving practices, but a convenience function only. It is the responsibility of the driver to always be aware of the surrounding and steer the vehicle.


Take the following precautions when using the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS):

  • The steering wheel is not continuously controlled so if the vehicle speed is at a higher rate when leaving a lane the vehicle may not be controlled by the system.
  • Do not steer the steering wheel suddenly when the steering wheel is being assisted by the system.
  • LKAS prevents the driver from moving out of the lane unintentionally by assisting the driver's steering. However, the driver should not solely rely on the system but always pay attention on the steering wheel to stay in the lane.
  • Always check the road condition and surroundings and be cautious when the system cancels, does not operate or malfunctions.
  • Do not place any accessories, stickers or tint the windshield near the rearview mirror.
  • The system detects lane lines and controls the steering wheel by a camera, therefore, if the lane lines are hard to detect, the system may not work properly. Please refer to "Driver's Attention".
  • Do not remove the LKAS parts and do not damage the sensor.
  • Do not place objects on the dashboard that reflects light such as mirrors, white paper, etc. The system may malfunction if the sunlight is reflected.
  • The operation of the LKAS can be affected by several factors (including environmental conditions). It is the responsibility of the driver to pay attention to the roadway and to maintain the vehicle in its lane at all times.
  • Always have your hands on the steering wheel while the LKAS system is activated. If you continue to drive with your hands off the steering wheel after the "Keep hands on steering wheel" warning illumination, the system will turn off automatically.
  • Always be cautious when using the system.
