“General Motors (GM) recently published a guide for auto glass businesses, auto insurers and consumers on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The recently published document provides a list of available systems, components involved, and when these require a calibration procedure be performed.
“During the course of vehicle diagnosis and repair, part replacement, or collision repair, components related to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems may need to be accessed or removed,” a portion of GM’s post reads. “In some cases, a calibration may need to be performed after service to ensure proper operation of the system.”
GM advises industry members to refer to the “appropriate service information document for specific calibration instructions, as well as any additional programming operations needed if the component was replaced.” The guide specifies the official name, abbreviation and “regular production option” (RPO) code of each ADAS feature. It also explains when calibration would be required and the cause of calibration issues for certain parts.”

The emergency of ADAS has proven to be an effective method of alerting drivers to potential road hazards. In some cases the ADAS may even make some corrections or adjustments to aid in the prevention of a possible accident. However, whenever a windshield is replaced these systems need to be recalibrated to ensure that they function correctly and as intended.
