The OEM repair manuals are hard to navigate and find the information a technician needs, so how does a technician know what to do? It is often difficult for aftermarket repair data websites, especially for late-model vehicles, to provide such specific information. Over the course of my time working for a remote diagnostic company, I spoke with more than three thousand shop technicians, managers, and owners. ADAS Automotive technology is only known to a few body shop professionals who know when it needs to be calibrated.

No matter whether you use a mobile calibration service or take vehicles to a dealer, you must ask yourself or the company doing your calibrations:

  • Does the calibration take place on a flat, level surface with appropriate lighting and background? Many manufacturers don’t accept uneven parking lots on sunny days, or shop bays with limited space, toolboxes, or metal posts. These factors often lead to calibrations failing or completing improperly. It is not always possible for dealerships to perform calibrations in an appropriate location. Calibrations will often fail or complete improperly due to these factors. Some dealerships may not have a proper place to perform calibrations.
  • After calibrations, does your calibration company perform wheel alignments, fill gas tanks, check tire pressures, empty trunks, and test drive vehicles properly?
  • Is the service department performing ALL necessary calibrations and resets on every vehicle and backing up the calibrations with OEM procedures from the repair manual, should an insurance adjuster question the need for them?

The calibration process involves many time-consuming steps, but they are all essential.

Here at ADAS Automotive Solutions:

  • In order to get the car back on the road safely, we make sure that all of these steps are taken care of.
  • All necessary resets and calibrations will be performed based on OEM research specific to the vehicle, interpreting the scan results that can be confusing.
