You should always recalibrate your ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) after replacing your windshield. Your ADAS camera may be out of calibration, even if you don’t see a warning light on your dashboard after replacing your windshield. This can be especially true if your new windshield is not an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) windshield, as they are most likely not manufactured to the same exact specs as the original manufacturer windshield.
What is ADAS?
ADAS, or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, include modern advancements in technology designed to increase safety on the road. Advanced driver safety systems use windshield-mounted cameras and sensors to survey the surrounding environment as you drive. This information is captured and analyzed by software to activate advanced safety features, like lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, forward collision alert, and more.
Failure to recalibrate your ADAS after you replace your windshield can result in the cameras and systems being out of sync. This can cause your advanced safety systems to malfunction, which can be very dangerous. In addition to re-calibrating your ADAS after a windshield replacement, advanced safety systems and cameras should be re-calibrated after a fault code, disconnect, wheel alignment, or change of suspension.
