New cars come equipped with more adaptive technology and safety features each year. 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.
Many ADAS features rely on the windshield to show a heads-up display of vehicle information like speed or lane departure warnings. Sensors and cameras also use the windshield to view surrounding obstacles. Replacing your windshield can throw off the sensors in ADAS, which can be dangerous.
What Affects ADAS?
Other things that affect your ADAS:
- New Tires
- New Headlights
- Brake work
- Bumper replacement
- adding any after market accessories
- Mud or debris can also cover the sensors, car panels or windshields causing temporary problems for sensors
How to Ensure Your ADAS Features Operate Correctly After Replacing Your Windshield
When replacing your windshield glass, we find quality auto glass that meets proper standards. Since ADAS use cameras and sensors in very precise areas of the windshield, any misalignment can make recalibration difficult or impossible.
Unfortunately, there is no DIY method to recalibrate these systems. Due to its complexity, ADAS will need a highly trained technician to adjust the system.
