This weeks topic is all about the calibration/recalibration of windshields! It is a requirement in most of the newer cars, after a windshield replacement/repair.
What is windshield recalibration?
Windshield recalibration is a process where the sensors and cameras used in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) on a vehicle are realigned or adjusted to ensure their accuracy and effectiveness. These systems include features like lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking.
Why is windshield recalibration necessary?
Windshield recalibration is necessary when a vehicle’s windshield is replaced or repaired because the sensors and cameras used in ADAS systems are often mounted on or near the windshield. Any changes to the windshield can affect their alignment, potentially leading to incorrect data and reduced safety.
When should windshield recalibration be performed?
Windshield recalibration should be performed whenever the windshield is replaced, and it may also be necessary after certain types of windshield repairs. It’s essential to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and recommendations for your specific vehicle.
How is windshield recalibration done?
Windshield recalibration is performed by our trained technicians using specialized equipment. They connect to the vehicle’s diagnostic system and use optical tools to align the sensors and cameras precisely. The process may vary depending on the vehicle make and model.
What are the consequences of neglecting windshield recalibration?
Neglecting windshield recalibration can lead to safety risks. If the ADAS sensors and cameras are not properly aligned, the system may not work as intended. This could result in inaccurate lane-keeping, adaptive cruise control issues, or a failure to engage automatic emergency braking, compromising the overall safety of the vehicle.
