    i left work in my 2017 SHO last night at 11:45. At exactly midnight while driving , the start up chimes came on and in the left screen a message about being tired and I should take a break. There was a hot coffee icon too. Why would it come on after only 15 minutes of driving? Can I adjust this?

    It's a notification that seems to come up if the car thinks you are driving like you are tired, but it seems to be overly sensitive and it never did much for me so I disabled it. It be disabled on the menus on the dashboard; I can't remember exactly where but I don't recall it being hard to find.

    Mine came on once very soon into a drive. I think it was because I wasn't staying in between the lines. I think it only comes on if you have lane keep assist turned on. I only use that on long drives and that was the only time I saw it.

    it looks at your steering inputs and if it determines that you are sluggish in your steering corrections, it turns on that indicator. I would rather have it nag me than to fall asleep while driving...

    I didn't have lane assist on. I was tired from work, so I suppose my driving could have been sloppy. The warning wasn't a big deal, and I think I will not deactivate it. Might save me one day! Thanks all for the help.
