There's a small camera mounted at the top center of the windshield, roughly behind the rearview mirror, I believe. It uses video processing to determine where the lines on the road are in relation to your vehicle.

Lane Assist

Does ACC have to be on for it to work. I just picked up my Limited last night and it easily drifts across the center line on a 2 lane road. SD

There's a button to disable Lane Assist on the dash under the radio. If the light is on, it means that the feature is turned off. You would need to press that button to turn the light off before it would work.

It doesn't seem to require ACC, as I've used it several times without (and also some with) ACC.

When it's on, you'll see a little image of the car in the instrument cluster with lines (like lane lines) on either side of it, I believe.

Thanks....I was trying to adjust it through the settings and didn't see the button (lit)right below the radio. We'll see how it works. I drove a Volvo XC90 recently and was impressed how when it hit the road line, the steering corrected the path of travel to keep the car going straight.

I thought lane assist was also "Active"........I see the lane line illuminate to warn me I am drifting out of my lane but there's no active steering correction. Is this something that also has to be turned on. I drove a Volvo XC90 recently and the car's steering intervened to keep me in my lane.

My Mercedes vibrates the wheel when I drift out of my lane. I don't have their active system and was hoping it was there with the Pacifica I picked up this week.

From manual... Page 388, 3rd edition
LaneSense Operation
The LaneSense system is operational at speeds above
37 mph (60 km/h) and below 112 mph (180 km/h). It uses
a forward looking camera to detect lane markings and
measure vehicle position within the lane boundaries.
When both lane markings are detected and the driver
unintentionally drifts out of the lane (no turn signal
applied), the LaneSense system provides a haptic warning
in the form of torque applied to the steering wheel to
prompt the driver to remain within the lane boundaries
. If
the driver continues to unintentionally drift out of the lane,
the LaneSense system provides a visual warning through
the Instrument Cluster Display to prompt the driver to
remain within the lane boundaries.
The driver may manually override the haptic warning by
applying torque into the steering wheel at any time.
When only a single lane marking is detected and the driver
unintentionally drifts across the lane marking (no turn
signal applied), the LaneSense system provides a visual
warning through the Instrument Cluster Display to prompt
the driver to remain within the lane. When only a single
lane marking is detected, a haptic (torque) warning will not
be provided.
NOTE: When operating conditions have been met, the
LaneSense system will monitor if the driver’s hands are on
the steering wheel and provides an audible warning to the
driver when the driver’s hands are not detected on the
steering wheel. The system will cancel if the driver does
not return their hands to the wheel.

Changing LaneSense Status
The LaneSense system has settings to adjust the intensity of
the torque warning and the warning zone sensitivity
(Early/Medium/Late) that you can configure through the
Uconnect system screen. Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in
“Multimedia” for further information.

Thanks.....I haven't even opened the manuals yet. Most of my driving has been on roads with single lane markings....that explains why I haven't felt anything in the wheel.

How does Chrysler's system compare with that in the Toyota Sienna (with advanced technology package)?
