Windshield Calibration Services in Metro Phoenix
If your vehicle has recently had a windshield replacement, been involved in a minor collision, had a suspension change or a wheel alignment, it requires professional windshield calibration. Automakers recommend all vehicles equipped with ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) to be recalibrated in order for the camera and safety system to continue to work properly. Therefore, recalibration services are necessary to bring your ADAS back to OEM specifications and ensure your vehicle’s safety on the road.
ProLite Auto Glass is your go-to provider of automobile maintenance in Metro Phoenix. We offer accredited calibration services for all types of vehicles to keep you safe on the road.
Auto Glass Calibration Services
You may think of your windshield as just another piece of auto glass, but modern car models have advanced technology embedded in their windshields. Does your car have a forward-facing camera mounted anywhere near your windscreen?
If so equipped, the camera’s proper operation is a critical component of your vehicle’s advanced safety system and must be recalibrated any time you have a windshield replaced. ProLite can do install and recalibration in the same appointment to spare you time and money.
Dynamic ADAS Calibration
If your vehicle has a “dynamic” ADAS system, our mobile windshield calibration team will come to you for free and complete both windshield replacement and windshield recalibration in one single appointment.
The process can be done remotely as the calibration is performed by inserting a hand-held unit straight into your automobile. Once attached, the vehicle has to be driven at a proper speed, over a certain distance, in appropriate weather conditions. All the exact parameters are manufacturer-prescribed. After this test, the vehicle is good to go!
Static ADAS Calibration
If you have a “static” safety system however, you’ll have to bring the vehicle to us, as the use of specialized equipment in an enclosed environment is necessary. As such, we will do both windshield replacement and recalibration in shop.
Why Windshield Calibration Services Are Important
Driving can prove to be quite a dangerous experience if you don’t take the necessary precautions. Thankfully, modern technology allows us to safeguard ourselves from potentially life-threatening situations.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) makes sure that you don’t have to be on the lookout for risky situations by yourself, and that’s why having it properly calibrated is crucial. The vital applications for which your ADAS is responsible are the following:
- Lane Departure Warning
- Collision Warning
- Blind Spot Monitoring
- Park Assist
- Automatic Cruise Control
- Pedestrian Protection
- Headlights Control
Calibration services are necessary to make sure that ADAS and all the associated safety features of your vehicle are functional. Even the slightest change in a sensor’s position can put you at risk of accidents. After you’ve had repairs made to your car, the vehicle’s cameras, lasers and radars are no longer properly aligned. Under these circumstances, the car’s computer can’t operate in safe conditions, putting you at a greater risk of road accidents.
In case of imminent danger, your ADAS should alert the car’s safety system early on so that it can take preventive action. If your vehicle’s ADAS isn’t properly calibrated, these warning signals may come too late or be read incorrectly, reducing the safety system’s response time and efficiency. So don’t risk your own safety and those of your loved ones, schedule an appointment right now and such issues will be history!
