Adaptive Cruise Control Indicators

Lincoln Nautilus. Adaptive Cruise Control Indicators. Switching From Adaptive Cruise Control to Cruise Control. Lane Centering Illuminates when you switch adaptive cruise control on. The color of the indicator changes to indicate the system status.

White indicates the system is on but inactive.

Green indicates that you set the speed and the system is active.

Switching From Adaptive Cruise Control to Cruise Control

WARNING: Normal cruise control will not brake when your vehicle is approaching slower vehicles. Always be aware of which mode you have selected and apply the brakes when necessary.

You can change from adaptive cruise control to normal cruise control through the information display.

Lincoln Nautilus. Adaptive Cruise Control Indicators. Switching From Adaptive Cruise Control to Cruise Control. Lane Centering The cruise control indicator light replaces the adaptive cruise control indicator light if you select normal cruise control. The gap setting does not display, and the system does not respond to lead vehicles. Automatic braking remains active to maintain set speed.

Lane Centering

How Does Lane Centering Work

Adaptive cruise control with lane centering uses radar and camera sensors to help keep your vehicle in the lane by applying continuous assistance steering torque input toward the lane center on highways.

Note: The adaptive cruise control gap setting operates normally.

Lane Centering Precautions

WARNING: Do not use the system when towing a trailer. Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle, personal injury or death.

WARNING: Do not use the system if any changes or modifications to the steering wheel have been made. Any changes or modifications to the steering wheel could affect the functionality or performance of the system. Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle, personal injury or death.

Adaptive cruise control precautions apply to lane centering unless stated otherwise or contradicted by a lane centering precaution. See Adaptive Cruise Control Precautions.

Lane Centering Requirements

You must keep your hands on the steering wheel at all times.

The system only activates when all of the following occur:

  • You have adaptive cruise control with stop and go on.
  • You have your hands on the steering wheel.
  • The system detects both lane markings.

Note: If it does not detect valid lane markings, the system stays inactive until valid markings are available.

Lane Centering Limitations

Adaptive cruise control limitations apply to lane centering unless stated otherwise or contradicted by a lane centering limitation. See Adaptive Cruise Control Limitations.

Lane Centering may not correctly operate in any of the following conditions:

  • Your vehicle is not centered in the lane.
  • The lane is too narrow or wide.
  • The system does not detect at least one lane marking or when lanes merge or split.
  • Limited steering torque input is applied.
  • Areas under construction or new infrastructure.
  • When modifications to the steering system have been made.
  • When using a spare tire.
  • In high wind conditions.

Note: The driving assistance torque is limited and may not be sufficient for all driving situations such as driving through tight curves or driving through curves at high speeds.

Note: In exceptional conditions, the system may deviate from the center line.

Switching Lane Centering On and Off

You must keep your hands on the steering wheel at all times.

The controls are on the steering wheel.

Lincoln Nautilus. Adaptive Cruise Control Indicators. Switching From Adaptive Cruise Control to Cruise Control. Lane Centering Press the button.

The indicator appears in the information display. When the system is on, the color of the indicator changes to indicate the system status.

You can override the system at any time by steering your vehicle.

Note: The correct requirements must be met before you can switch the system on. See Lane Centering Requirements.

Lane Centering Alerts

When the system is active and detects no steering activity for a certain period of time, the system alerts you to put your hands on the steering wheel. If you do not react to the warnings the system cancels and slows your vehicle down to idle speeds while maintaining steering control.

The system also alerts you if your vehicle crosses lane markings without detected steering activity.

Note: The system may detect a light grip or touch on the steering wheel as hands-off driving.

Lane Centering Automatic Cancellation

When an external condition cancels the system, for example, no lane markings available, a tone sounds and a message appears in the information display.

Lincoln Nautilus. Adaptive Cruise Control Indicators. Switching From Adaptive Cruise Control to Cruise Control. Lane Centering If your vehicle starts to slow down, you must provide steering input to the wheel and press and release the button to regain full system performance.

Automatic cancellation can also occur if:

  • The lane becomes too wide or too narrow.
  • The system cannot detect valid lane markings.
  • Lane markings cross over one another.

Note: The system disables until the next key cycle if your vehicle slows down due to driver inactivity twice within a key cycle.
