Hands-off warning

Hyundai Palisade. Warning Message

Keep hands on steering wheel

If the driver takes their hands off the steering wheel for several seconds while the HDA system is activated, the system will warn the driver.


If the steering wheel is held with a light grip, the message may appear because the HDA system may not recognize that the driver has their hands on the steering wheel.


The warning message may appear late according to road conditions. Therefore, always have your hands on the steering wheel while driving.
