ADAS Calibrations: Ford As-Built Manual Programming Procedure

ADAS Calibrations: Ford As-Built Manual Programming Procedure

When ADAS components are repaired, there are additional steps that need to be taken for the calibrations to be complete.

When it comes to Ford, it’s not a calibration if the vehicle doesn’t know it’s been calibrated. When Ford ADAS components are removed, repaired and replaced, there are additional steps that need to be taken for the calibrations to be complete. Technicians will not always know this, but failure to do so can create larger problems down the line, ending up costing additional time and money.

Fortunately, as Babcox Media’s Joe Keene shows with as-built data, Hunter’s ADASLink diagnostic scan tool walks techs through the required steps quickly and easily to ensure all proper procedures are performed.

ADAS Calibration: FCA/Stellantis Forward Facing Camera Calibration

For some ADAS calibrations, the challenges aren’t in the calibrations themselves, but in the details of preparing for them.

As Babcox Media’s Joe Keene shows for this forward-facing camera calibration following a windshield replacement on a Stellantis vehicle, the procedure itself requires little more than driving. But first the technician will need to perform a few necessary tasks, such as ensuring a completed FCA registration. Additionally, prior to driving the vehicle, the technician must select a route that avoids stopping, which will negate the calibration in progress. Internet access must also be maintained throughout the procedure.
