First time I've seen this with LKA but have not been able to replicate it.
Anybody else see it? 2017 loaded Volt.

I think if it has to correct for you 3x in a short span of time, it assumes you're trying to use it as an auto pilot...

This from page 213 of the Owner's Manual: The LKA system does not continuously steer the vehicle. If LKA does not detect active driver steering, an alert and chime may be provided. Move the steering wheel to dismiss.

It occurred on an empty 65mph freeway when I was testing the system's line recognition deliberately. I was making it drift into lines to see how it would response in safe, perfect conditions. And I was bored.
After I saw it, I tried to make it happen again, but no love. There is a yellow triangle in the center of the instrument cluster that pops up.

Seems like one of those messages that should also deliver a mild shock through the seat as well.
Without have to increase the cost of the car, they could have the sound system let out a bloody curdling scream like somebody being murdered at 100% volume. Then, the synthetic OnStar voice, "Now that I have your attention..."

Silverado (and probably other models) does this, almost. It vibrates your butt on the side you're swerving into. The first time I felt it was in a demo loaner while my Volt was being worked on. Freaked me out...... I didn't know what it was.

So once you found out the seat vibrated, you weaved like a drunk sailor all the way home? :D

Umm, no but there were a few seconds there where I was distracted by a sudden panic attack. :rolleyes:

I did start using the turn signals for lane changes though.

Someone tag Elemental... we need a classic response from him
Something tells me he doesn't need a vibrating seat to weave like a drunken sailor, though I'm sure he'd see it as a bonus. For all I know his ELR seats may have this feature, being an upscale GM car and all.

An empty 65 MPH freeway in So Cal? Was it 2 in the morning? :D

Toll Road, 261/241. The King's Highway, private driving for the Royals. So I guess 'freeway' was a bit of a misnomer.

A friend told me that you can do the toll roads for free if you have the car pool stickers. You just need to pay for the transponder.

Not on the 241/261 or 91 Toll Lanes. Fees can be as high as $10.45 for 10 miles. Over $1 per mile. And folk biitch about Chargepoint fees...

California is the land of Royalty now. If you have money, you get special treatment, heck, you even get your own highways that are off-limits to the working class folk.

I got the hands on the wheel warning once as well, however I haven't tried to replicate it. I don't use LKA at all anymore as it isn't ready for prime time. If our Volt seats give free massages, I might have to rethink it however.

You can replicate it by not turning the wheel at all for some distance. It'll pickup the slightest motion from the steering wheel and there seems to be either a timer or a distance maximum before the alert goes off. Every time you move the wheel, this resets.
