Does Model 3 have Lane Departure Warning?

Does Model 3 have Lane Departure Warning?

I seem to recall others talking about turning on/off Lane Departure Warning (which vibrates the steering wheel) on the model 3. Thing is, I can't find the feature on my car. Where can it be found?

I think is is under Autopilot.

It's there but you can turn it on or off from the screen. BTW you don't need the warning when Autopilot is engaged. Who is it going to warn if the car is drifting off under the autopilot? :O

On my MX it is the following and I assume it is the same for the M3, don't have mine yet.

Controls > Settings > Driver Assistance > Lane Departure Warning.

Yes. It is on the Autopilot tab. From there you press the gear icon in the corner and you can toggle the lane departure feature on and off.

Good Info lilbean.. I guess I have to learn the new menus Old dog will have learn new tricks :)

@dkabq Yes. It is different from the S and X. Just make sure to press the gear icon when you see it. :) That icon is not on every tab.

I found it! Thank you!

So no EAP means no Lane Departure warning system either?

diegoPasadena | 11 avril 2018

The Lane Departure warning is there no matter which software configuration you have.

That little gear in the top right is helpful. Some tabs have it, some don’t. You can change the speed limit +5 mph for example. When you get a few minutes, click through all the tabs and check out any gear that pops up.

I have Lane assist turned on. Lately, I notice that intermittently it does not work. If you turn it off and on, it starts working again. Somehow less reliable lately. Anyone else see this behavior?

Let's hear it from our specialist FishEV!

“I have Lane assist turned on. Lately, I notice that intermittently it does not work. If you turn it off and on, it starts working again. Somehow less reliable lately. Anyone else see this behavior?“

Yup. Noticed it right after I got it. Tesla had me video the car not alarming as it went over the lines left and right. They send a tech who takes a ride and watches it. He calls Fremont tech who is looking at the car via Virtual Tech and oh yeah....that’s within normal limits. What?!

Another owner confirmed it with his car on same road which aims a major well marked two lane road.

My experience is it will iwarn/assis first time and not the second as though it thinks the second is on purpose. Might be a bit improved on last update but just not reliable. Might work when I need it, might not.

AutoSteer works well so car sees the lines but lane keeping warning/assist by itself is flaky. Makes no sense.

Warning: FISHEV is a known propaganda agent and has been on a disinformation campaign on these forums for several years. He poses under multiple screen names, as an EV enthusiast and unhappy Tesla owner. Often truth is mIxed with exaggerations and flat out lies to cast doubt about the viability of Teslas.

I've got lane keeping turned on and set to "assist". Its never failed to give Mr a noticeable bump back into my lane if I strayed. And if I went to change lanes without a signal it would also bump. So it works as android. At least for me. SR+HW3 40.2

I should add that this occurs regardless of Autopilot or TACC being engaged or if the driver Mark I Sarah.

"I've got lane keeping turned on and set to "assist". Its never failed to give Mr a noticeable bump back into my lane if I strayed. And if I went to change lanes without a signal it would also bump."

My experience is it will sometimes alarm, sometimes assist, sometimes both which is odd that you get different types of warnings. Lane Assist and Lane Departure Avoidance fighting it out. But if you try to get it to alarm or assist by repeatedly crossing the line, it will stop alarm and/or assist after the 2nd or 3rd crossover.

Demoed it for Tesla, had another own in his LR RWD and same thing. He also had said it "never failed" but had never really tried to get it to consistently go off/on/off/on. When he did, it didn't so at least two Model 3's, different Model 3's on same road had same experience. I suspect our cars are not anomalies but the norm.

I do think it's improved since last update so maybe Tesla is working on a new "normal" where simply Lane Keeping warming goes of ever time car cross lines without turn signal.

flag troll and move on

WW_spb | 11 décembre 2019

Opposite from Troll claims my wife told me that lane keep assist works all the time. Bam

@FISHEV Maybe your AI is "special needs"?

WW_spb | 11 décembre 2019

Lol Sarah R. You are the best

LoveMyM3 | 11 décembre 2019

I can confirm it works only intermittently. Hopefully will evolve with time.
