Picked up my new BE this week and absolutely love it even though the wife don't care for the color, she wanted a white E. But...., I'm hoping someone will know if there's a way to turn the LKAS off completely? Even if I turn it off from the steering column and the light on display is out, I still get a shake from the steering wheel when getting close to lines. Don't know if this is a defect or if it's intended to be that way. Can anyone help before I carry it back to the dealer on Tuesday?
BTW, trip to the beach this weekend (120 miles), I got 25.3 mph with a lot of stop and go due to traffic.

My understanding is the LKAS goes to the OFF position automatically every time you turn the key off. If it is ON, then you can either hit the MAIN or LKAS button to turn it off. That is the way it seems to work on my BE. I have turned it on a couple of times to see how it works and then turned it off via the button on the steering wheel. If it is indeed OFF, you should not be getting any feedback from it.

OP, the feedback (shaking steering wheel) is likely coming from RDM (Road Departure Mitigation), not LKAS (Lane Keeping Assist System). To turn off RDM, press the button with the picture of a vehicle driving out of a lane. It will stay off until you turn it on again.

EDIT: Honda has been a bit inconsistent with function descriptions. In my CR-V with Honda Sensing, the button and function in reference is called LDW (Lane Departure Warning) which is the warning you get before RDW takes action. I have to keep LDW (RDM) off else it beeps constantly as I drive to the side of center of the road to avoid bad pavement.

ACC, LKAS, RDW, RDM, CMBS, ABS, HSS, BLIS, VSA, TCS, ESC, HVAC.. Pretty soon, we're going to have to attend classes just to figure out how to drive our vehicles. :)

That may be it! I'll try. Thanks.
