Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

Alerts you when the system detects a possibility of your vehicle unintentionally crossing over detected lane markings.

Important Safety Reminder
Like all assistance systems, LDW has limitations.

Over-reliance on LDW may result in a collision. It is always your responsibility to keep the vehicle within your driving lane.

LDW only alerts you when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use. LDW may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and lane marker condition.

It is always your responsibility to safely operate the vehicle and avoid collisions.

■How the System Works

If your vehicle is getting too close to detected

If your vehicle is getting too close to detected left or right side lane markings without a turn signal activated, LDW will give audible and visual alerts.

The beeper sounds and the Lane Departure message appears on the multi-information display, letting you know that you need to take appropriate action.

■How the System Activates

The system begins to search for lane markings when all the following conditions are met: • The vehicle is traveling between at 40-90 mph (64-145 km/h).
• The vehicle is on a straight or slightly curved road.
• The turn signals are off.
• The brake pedal is not depressed.

LDW may automatically shut off and the LDW indicator comes and stays on.

■LDW Camera

The camera is located behind the

The camera is located behind the rearview mirror.

Never apply a film or attach any objects to the windshield that could obstruct the LDW camera’s field of vision.

Scratches, nicks, and other damage to the windshield within the LDW camera’s field of vision can cause the system to operate abnormally. If this occurs, we recommend that you replace the windshield with a genuine Acura replacement windshield. Making even minor repairs within the camera’s field of vision or installing an aftermarket replacement windshield may also cause the system to operate abnormally.

After replacing the windshield, have a dealer recalibrate the camera. Proper calibration of the LDW camera is necessary for the system to operate properly.

Do not place an object on the top of the instrument panel. It may reflect onto the windshield and prevent the system from detecting lane lines properly.

To help reduce the likelihood that high interior temperatures will cause the camera system to shut off, when parking, find a shady area or face the front of the vehicle away from the sun. Also, do not use a reflective sun shade that can concentrate heat on the camera.

If the Can Not Operate: Camera Too Hot/CAN NOT OPERATE message appears: • Use the climate control system to cool down the interior and, if necessary, the defroster mode when windows are fogged.
• Start driving the vehicle to lower the windshield temperature, which cools down the area around the LDW camera.

■LDW Limitations

LDW may not activate or may not recognize lanes, and may activate even when keeping in the middle of a lane, under the following conditions.


● When you drive in bad weather (rain, fog, etc.).
● A heavy load in the rear or modifications to the suspension tilts your vehicle.
● An abnormal tire condition is detected (wrong tire size, flat tire, etc.).
● When the windshield is blocked by dirt, mud, leaves, wet snow, etc.
● When the temperature inside the system is high.
● A sudden change between light and dark such as an entrance or exit of a tunnel.
● You drive into the sunlight (e.g. at dawn or dusk).
● When the windshield is dirty or cloudy.
● When you drive in the shadows of trees, buildings, etc.
● When you drive on a wet road surface following another vehicle.
- The camera may perceive the tire tracks in the water as lane lines.
● When there is snow or wheel tracks on the side of the road.
