19 GCTH Lane sense problem

Just returned from a trip to Florida, about 2000+ miles total. My TH now has a total of about 5300 miles on it. On this trip and ever since I have owned it the Lane Sense will tell me to place both hands on the wheel. This is while driving a straight line down a well marked expressway with both hands on the wheel. It twice shut the Lane Sense off giving me a notification message on the dash display. I have not yet taken this to my dealership to let them look at it but plan to within the next day or so. I read elsewhere on here that the steering wheel has sensors that if it doesn't detect movement in your hands it will trigger this. I don't know if this is truly how it works but being aware of this I randomly move my hands around on the wheel but I still get the faults. I paid big money for this Jeep and the features on it. I expect them to work properly. Has anyone found a solution for this?

Mine will give the notification to put your hands on the wheel only if you actually don't have a hand on it. I actually tested that on a straight road and it took several seconds to get the message. I've never had it pop up while touching the wheel. It does not require you to move your hands around. You need to see the dealer for that, there is definitely a problem.

Yeah its just a capacitance sensor, and when both hands touch the wheel it senses the capacitance difference. Dunno what it does when wearing big woolen gloves. I think the only way to turn off the nag is to turn off lane sense.

I think someone here within the last few months had a similar issue, don't recall off hand the resolution..... see what I did there

Understand that you want everything to work, but you haven't even taken it in to get it addressed under warranty yet. It can be disappointing and a hassle for a new car but...

Here is a brief thing I found

The reason for the comment about wanting everything to work was to ward off comments on here about "just turn it off" or "relying on nanny controls" etc. I have every intention of bringing it to the dealership as soon as I can get down there.

As far as the capacitance issue of my hands having a high resistance or something, it did the same thing to my wife when she was driving and her hands are much softer than mine.

I wasn't even aware the WK2 tracked if your hands were on the wheel. Hopefully, the dealer can get it fixed for you.
