AutoPilot works great for me but not my wife?

    She cannot get the car to change lanes with the turn signal. Yet when we change drivers on a trip it works perfectly for me.

    Any ideas?

    She might just be doing it too quickly. I had that problem when first trying autopilot. Have her try pulling the stalk a little more slowly... Just a little.

    Not sure of any other possibilities.

    It's part of the driver profile, your wife probably needs to activate line change capability.

    I would do these three things

    Make sure its activated
    Make sure the car see's that there is more then one lane.
    Indicate a change with clicking the turn signal down. Save the holding for another time

    The car clearly plays favorites.

    This.

    I couldn't change lanes until I updated my profile. I'm sure I confused a lot of people behind me until I figured that out
