Sensor Calibration Oceanside
Be aware that your vehicles safety mechanisms often rely on sensors in modern cars to work.
Sensors on cars have become commonplace in modern cars. They are now used as an integral part of a car’s overall safety features and effectiveness. It goes without saying that if one of these sensors is misaligned, some features can effectively be disabled or nullified.
If your car has Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems, commonly referred to as ADAS, then these sensors will need to be recalibrated with your windshield replacement. While most shops will refer you to the dealer for these calibrations, we can do them in-shop for most vehicles. No need to make two stops when we can replace your windshield and do the calibration in one visit.
For your ADAS to work properly the sensors must be aligned after your windshield is replaced
Benefits of ADAS
Why Its Important to Schedule A Sensor Calibration
Above are just some of the more notable ADAS features, but rest assured, there are many more. It goes without saying just how important maintaining correctly calibrated sensors can be. Imagine one of your forward-facing cameras is misaligned by even a fraction of an inch. At 50 feet, that tiny amount can mean more than a foot. This may equate to the camera not seeing something in front of you it normally would – potentially leading to a collision. Thankfully in most cases, the system realizes the misalignment and will disable the ADAS altogether.
With so many things happening at once, just one small misalignment can spell disaster! Call Auto Glass Oceanside and Tint to have your sensors calibrated today!
