More and more driver assist technology is being introduced into new vehicles. From surround view cameras to auto breaking, these features introduce new opportunities and problems to face.
When it comes to auto glass and windshield replacements, these present an additional obstacle to work around.
For this tech to work, cameras and motion sensors are often placed under the windshield(s) of your vehicle. After a windshield replacement, problems with those sensors may arise.
To avoid these potential issues and malfunctions, these sensors/cameras must be recalibrated. This process not only ensures your safety and that of other drivers, but it also protects you from a possible insurance nightmare.
If you happen to have a vehicle with one of these sensors or cameras, it is highly recommended that you have them recalibrated. There are certified technicians that can do this for you. Auto glass shops should tell you if this needs to be done, we here at Adventure Auto Glass certainly will.
This is only a problem for those with driver assist cameras or sensors, NOT wiper or headlight sensors. If you are unsure, feel free to ask your technician or customer service rep and they will gladly be able to tell you.
Stay tuned for a much more in-depth overview of what exactly this means for you, including the different types of recalibrations. If you have any questions before then, feel free to give us a call and we will happily explain this.
