If you have a newer model car, you may not have given much thought to some of its included features, as they always work well and are there when you need them. However, cars that are equipped with the Advanced Driver(s) Assistance System, known as ADAS, function in part because of integration with the windshield. For example, if your car has blind spot monitoring, parking assist, or collision warning, then you have an ADAS vehicle. However, sometimes these vehicles require re-calibration. Read on to learn a little about what this means and if you need windshield re-calibration service in Mountlake Terrace.
The ADAS system is connected to one or more cameras that are usually installed in or next to the windshield. When the system is first installed, it is completely calibrated with the windshield. But, as time goes by, this can be thrown off. If you’ve been in a minor fender-bender, the camera becomes loose or disconnected, you have a windshield replaced, or you have an error code on your dashboard, you should have the windshield recalibrated. If you do not, these features may not work at all, or may not work well.
Calibration simply means that you’re returning the ADAS system to its original OEM specifications. After a windshield replacement or a jolt that causes impact, the system may simply need re-calibration.
