      Anyone with one of the new Platinum's had any success getting the Lane-keeping system to work? Owners manual indicates button on steering wheel which doesn't exist to turn system on/off. There is a setting in left gauge vehicle settings, but it doesn't appear to have any effect.

      My 2014 limited has the button on the end of left turn signal lever. Push it in and the lane keeping system activates, shows on the left display next to fuel gauge.

      Have not see a 2016 Platinum yet surprised if its changed.

      Hello jed99,

      Your fellow forum member, dco43054, is correct! If you don’t have your 2016 Explorer Order Guide handy, don’t worry you can access it online. Feel free to check out page 221 by clicking, here.

      Give it a try, and let us know if it worked! :)

      Lane keeping system

      Well I guess jed99 is too embarassed to admit that he was not looking in the right spot for the lane keeping system activation button. I would have been nice for him to acknowledge that it is now working:hammer:

      Page 225 of your Owner's Manual;
      Press the button on the steering
      wheel stalk to switch the system
      on or off.

      I think a small diagram in the Manual as well would be helpful.
