What is ADAS and why does it need to be calibrated?
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, or ADAS, are found on approximately half of the vehicles produced today. This is not just on luxury vehicles, Toyota has had ADAS standard on over 90% of their vehicles since 2017. The important things to know about ADAS are that it doesn’t work if not properly calibrated and issues are invisible to scan tools – the only way to know that ADAS is functioning properly is to perform a recalibration. Precision Auto Repair, Inc. has the tools to recalibrate all ADAS systems. This recalibration needs to be done with replacement of the windshield, replacement of any vehicle part that is attached to an ADAS sensor, after replacement of an ADAS sensor or damage to the sensor mounting locations. Most manufacturers require recalibration after any collision.
