Car Recalibration Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

How does calibration work?

The procedure of calibrating an automobile’s ADAS involves restoring it to OEM standards.
After the installation of new glass, especially a windshield with a camera installed on it, calibration is required to make sure that the ADAS features continue to work as intended despite being relocated during installation.

Why do we need to be able to perform calibration?

The ADAS cameras, radars, and lasers must be aligned properly for them to work successfully; however, the vehicle’s computer does not achieve this on its own.
Calibration directs the vehicle’s computer and assures the functionality of these systems.

The camera must be taken out of the mount and disconnected from the vehicle when a windshield is changed. The camera needs to be reattached and calibrated after the replacement is finished. Customers must visit the dealer to have the vehicle calibrated if this is not done by the installer.

Even a camera that hasn’t been disconnected from the vehicle needs to be recalibrated to ensure that the ADAS features work as intended and to reduce the installer’s potential responsibility.

If a car is not calibrated, what will happen?

If an automobile’s ADAS is improperly calibrated, the system may not operate safely. For example, if a car’s cameras, radars, or lasers are off by even a few millimeters, they may not provide reliable readings and the system may malfunction, putting the installation at risk of liability.

How long does calibration take?

Calibration might take anything from 15 minutes to more than three hours, depending on the calibration type and the particular vehicle.

What should we do if a customer refuses to have their car calibrated?

Remind customers that their ADAS systems might not operate properly without the calibration if they decide not to have you calibrate their car after an installation, and persuade them to think twice about having it done by you or at the very least by their dealer.

Any customer who chooses not to have their vehicle calibrated must sign a declaration confirming their choice and stating that they are aware of the potential risks.
