Place Hands on Steering Wheel Warning?

14471 Views 11 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  tturkstra
I was driving the other day and I got a warning message on the display that said (roughly) "PLACE HANDS ON STEERING WHEEL WHILE DRIVING". I do not remember the exact wording. I had both hands on the steering wheel at the time. I have the limited model.
Has anyone else received that message?

I'm wondering if the silver ring on the steering wheel detects if your hand is on the wheel (kinda like those heart monitors on exercise machines) OR if it works by detecting inputs from the steering wheel.
It just detects input...even small ones. The metal ring doesn't have any sensors in it.
