What Things Cause Malfunction?

Drivers can enjoy safety features when Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems are working optimally. However, there are things that can affect the performance of ADAS. For instance, a windshield replacement can throw off the sensors in ADAS. Replacement parts like bumper, break work, headlights or tires can throw off the ADAS calibration system. Adding any aftermarket accessories can also affect the calibration system. An expert (paint and body shop) technician can help recalibrate the systems however. Also, the calibration system of ADAS can be affected temporarily by winter and muddy driving condition. Furthermore, debris covering windshields, car panels or sensors can also temporarily throw off the ADAS calibration system. A (collision center) like Miracle Body and Paint can fix the problem.

Windshield Replacement and ADAS

Recalibration of ADAS is necessary after a windshield replacement. The replacement glass should meet AGRS/ANSI standard to prevent misalignment once the glass is fitted into the windshield. Misalignment can make recalibration difficult or impossible because ADAS sensors and cameras need to be placed in precise areas of the windshield. There are no available DIY recalibrations for ADAS, so only qualified technicians are able to handle it.
