Hyundai Tucson: Lane Keeping Asiist {LKA} / Lane Keeping Assist Malfunction and Limitations

Lane Keeping Assist malfunction

When Lane Keeping Assist is not working properly, the "Check Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system" message may appear and the yellow indicator light may illuminate on the instrument cluster. Have the vehicle inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Limitations of Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist may not operate normally or may operate unexpectedly if:

  • The lane is difficult to distinguish because:
    - The lane markings (or road edge) are damaged or covered with rain, snow, dirt, oil, etc.
    - The color of the lane marking (or road edge) is not distinguishable from the road.
    - There are markings (or road edges) on the road or near the lane that looks similar to the lane markings (or road edge).
    - The lane markings are covered by the shadow of objects around the road, such as median strip, guardrails, noise barriers, and trees.
  • There are more than two lane markings (or road edges) on the road.
  • The lane number increases or decreases, or the lane markings (or road edges) are crossing.
  • The lane markings (or road edges) are complicated or a structure substitutes for the lines, such as a construction area or tollbooth area.
  • There are road markings, such as zigzag lanes, crosswalk markings and road signs.
  • The lane suddenly disappears, such as at the intersection.
  • The lane (or road width) is very wide or narrow.
  • There is a road edge without a lane.
  • There is a boundary structure on the road, such as sidewalk or curb.
  • The distance to the front vehicle is extremely short or the vehicle in front is covering the lane marking (or road edge).


For more information on limitations of the front view camera, refer to the "Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)" section in this chapter.
