Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems Calibration ADAS

Cars come equipped with more adaptive technology and safety features every year. These systems are designed to keep drivers safe during moments when they lose focus or control. Some advanced driver assistance systems, like anti-lock brakes, come standard on most cars. Other systems, like adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection or park assist, are add-on features of newer model vehicles, 

How to Insure Your ADAS Features Operate Correctly After Replacing parts due to a crash?

Unfortunately, there is no DIY method to recalibrate these systems. Due to the complexity of ADAS, special computers and trained technicians are required to adjust these systems. In some cases, disconnecting the negative cable on the battery (black cable) for 60 seconds may reset the car’s computer and certain ADAS features. This is just a temporary fix, however. Always seek professional help to ensure your safety features are working properly. In general, when an ADAS part is replaced, ADAS re-calibration is required. The ADAS specialist may be able to do this for you, but always ask beforehand if this service is performed by the contractor. At LS Auto body, some of our specialists are trained in ADAS recalibration and skilled in selecting the right parts and installing them in a way that advanced safety features will be ultimately unaffected by the replacement.
