The steps are fairly similar if you decide you want to turn your BMW lane assist back on:
  • Step 1: Select Car, Settings, then Driver Assistance.
  • Step 2: Select Driver Assistance, followed by Safety and Warnings.
  • Step 3: Select either Lane Assist or Lane Departure Warning again.
  • Step 4: Finally, select On.
Look for a green car icon within two parallel lines on either side (typically located on the upper left-hand side of your dashboard screen) to see if it has been activated successfully.
