ADAS Calibration After Windshield Replacement
Recalibration of your vehicles forward facing camera system may be recommended after having a windshield replaced. These systems are called ADAS, or Advanced Driver Assistance Safety Systems and include Lane departure Warning System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring, as well as others. In most cases the system sensors are integrated into the windshield and once disconnected or disturbed during the replacement process it should be re-calibrated to make sure it is working properly.
ADAS Calibration consists of 2 types and varies by vehicle Year, Make and Model
1. Static Calibration. The static calibration consists of targets set out at specified locations so that the computer and camera may identify them and understand where your vehicle is positioned in relation to them. This process is done in our shop and generally takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete.
2. Dynamic calibration. The dynamic calibration takes place while driving your vehicle. We plug in the system to your ODB port under the dash and run through the menus to make sure the camera can identify specific road markings. The systems communicate with one another and the vehicle computer lets us know when the calibration has been successful.
Once the calibration is completed to OEM specifications the technician will print out a report that is a requirement for payment by your insurance carrier and a copy will be kept with you for your records.
All-Star can perform the windshield replacement service and ADAS calibration in one appointment meaning you can avoid a trip to the Dealership. Additionally, we can bill your insurance for the re-calibration making us not only one stop but one bill with very little out of pocket expense.
