Buick Encore: Driver Assistance Systems / Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

Buick Encore 2020-2022 Owner's Manual / Driving and Operating / Driver Assistance Systems / Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

If equipped, LDW may help avoid crashes due to unintentional lane departures. LDW uses a camera sensor to detect the lane markings at speeds of 56 km/h (35 mph) or greater. It may provide an alert if the vehicle is crossing a lane without using a turn signal in that direction. LDW light will not alert if the turn signal is active in the direction of lane departure, or if LDW detects that you are accelerating, braking or actively steering.

Warning

The LDW system does not steer the vehicle. The LDW system may not:

  • Provide enough time to avoid a crash.
  • Detect lane markings under poor weather or visibility conditions. This can occur if the windshield or headlamps are blocked by dirt, snow, or ice; if they are not in proper condition; or if the sun shines directly into the camera.
  • Detect road edges.
  • Detect lanes on winding or hilly roads.
  • If LDW only detects lane markings on one side of the road, it will only warn you when departing the lane on the side where it has detected a lane marking. Always keep your attention on the road and maintain proper vehicle position within the lane, or vehicle damage, injury, or death could occur. Always keep the windshield, headlamps, and camera sensors clean and in good repair. Do not use LDW in bad weather conditions.

How the System Works

LDW utilizes camera sensor installed on the windshield ahead of the rearview mirror to detect lane markings.

To turn LDW on and off, press Buick Encore. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) on the center stack. The control indicator will light when LDW is on.

When LDW is on, Buick Encore. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) is green if LDW is available to warn of a lane departure. If the vehicle crosses a detected lane marking without using the turn signal in that direction,Buick Encore. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) changes to amber and flashes. Additionally, there will be three beeps on the right or left, depending on the lane departure direction. LDW will not alert if the turn signal is active in the direction of lane departure, or if LDW detects that you are accelerating, braking or actively steering.
