If you’ve had some work done on your vehicle that’s equipped with ADAS, whether it’s repairs after an accident or it’s a modification, chances are that you’ll need to get the ADAS recalibrated.
ADAS systems are complex and can have many sensors around the car including behind the windscreen and behind the bumpers, that rely on being in the absolute correct position in order to function correctly.
If something has been done to the car, even something simple like a windscreen replacement, lowered right height or different sized wheels and tyres, the ADAS system must be recalibrated in order to function correctly.
This is because if a sensor or camera is even 1 degree off, it can have a severe effect on the operation of the ADAS system, rendering it either useless or even dangerous, if it starts to interfere with your driving in a manner that can cause an accident.
Effects of an uncalibrated ADAS system can including:
- Unexpected braking for no reason
- Unexpected avoidance steering (if the car has this feature)
- Warning alerts for things that are not there
- And more
