Ford Explorer: Adaptive Cruise Control / Switching Lane Centering On and Off

Ford Explorer 2020-2021 Owners Manual / Adaptive Cruise Control / Switching Lane Centering On and Off

The cruise controls are on the steering wheel. See Cruise Control.

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. See Adaptive Cruise Control Indicators.

Note: Adaptive cruise control must be on before you can switch lane centering on.

Activating Lane Centering

The system only activates when all of the following occur:

  • You have adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go on.
  • Your hands are 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.

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

System Alerts and Automatic Cancellation

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

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.

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

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 are crossed.

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