Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) is offered as part of Honda Sensing inside vehicles like the Honda Civic. It alerts you if you begin to drift from your lane, and works with other Honda Sensing systems to help you stay safe on Louisville roads. Learn more about what Lane Keeping Assist does and how it works on new Honda vehicles below!

How Does Lane Keep Assist Work?

Lane Keeping Assist System scans road markings, and uses visual and tactile alerts to notify you if you begin to drift from your lane without signaling. You’ll see a Lane Departure warning in the multi-information display, and the steering wheel will vibrate to get your attention quickly. Additionally, the Lane Keeping Assist System can also provide steering input to help the car stay centered until you take action.

Can I Turn Lane Keep Assist Off?

Yes, you can turn off the Lane Keeping Assist System, as well as other Honda Sensing driver assists. Here’s how:

  • 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 package of driver assists that’s standard or optional on most new Honda vehicles, such as the Accord Sedan and Pilot SUV. In addition to LKAS, Honda Sensing includes the following:

  • 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

Lane Keeping Assist System is one of the features you’ll find as part of Honda Sensing, but not Toyota Safety Sense. TSS offers Lane Departure Alert, but it doesn’t apply steering torque to help keep your car centered.
