Auto Glass Calibration (Windshield ADAS)

Chances are high that a camera is connected to your vehicle’s windshield. The forward-facing camera is part of what is known as the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) on vehicles. These systems are designed to help keep you and your passengers safe on the road by enhancing, automating, or adapting already present safety systems to prevent accidents.

More and more vehicles are being built with ADAS, with nearly all of those vehicleCloseup repair of cracked car windshield. Auto windshield crack fixing manufacturers requiring a system recalibration of any forward-facing cameras after windshield replacement. The Max Auto Glass technicians are experienced with auto glass calibration and will help ensure your vehicle’s ADAS continue to work properly and keep you safe on the road.

For the optimal recalibration and operation of windshield-connected ADAS, we can often complete your windshield replacement and auto glass calibration in the same appointment. Depending on your specific type of vehicle, one of two different recalibration processes will be used to meet the auto manufacturer specifications, either static or dynamic calibration. 

Examples of ADAS Functions

Your vehicle’s ADAS keeps you protected through a range of capabilities, creating almost a “safety net” around the vehicle to help reduce the chance of an accident. These systems enable advanced safety features to warn you of potential problems or collisions and assist you in making the necessary corrections or adjustments to your driving to avoid those issues.

Some common examples of ADAS include:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane keeping assistance
  • Lane departure warning 
  • Collision avoidance
  • Pedestrian detection 
  • and more! 

If your vehicle is equipped with a forward-facing camera, its proper operation is critical to your vehicle’s advanced safety system’s ability to keep you protected. When you schedule your windshield replacement, your Max Auto Glass technician will let you know if an ADAS recalibration is also advised based on your specific vehicle.

Auto Glass Services FAQs

Can you fix a chip in a windshield?

When it comes to windshield chip repair, a number of factors determine if we are able to repair the damage. We can fully repair a chipped windshield in most minor instances as if it never happened. With small chips, the most important factors are the depth and size of the damaged area. If the crack is too deep or more extensive than a nickel, it may be too damaged to repair.

On the other hand, if the chip is small enough, then our crew should be able to perform a windshield chip repair in no time. With our mobile windshield repair service, we’ll even come to you for your repair. Our expert technician will repair your chipped windshield while you’re at work or at home.

Do all windshield chips spread?

If a windshield chip repair is not performed quickly, there is a greater chance that the damage will spread. When a rock or debris chips your windshield, it weakens the surface strength of the glass. Once weakened, your windshield is much more susceptible to further damage from rough roads, potholes or road hazards. If you hit a bump in the road at the wrong angle, it can cause the chip to spread and turn into a significant crack.

If you wait too long to repair your windshield, you may need a windshield replacement instead. While a chipped windshield is a fairly easy repair, a windshield replacement is much more extensive. Before a chip spreads, contact the experts for windshield chip repair.

Can you drive immediately after windshield replacement?

Because of the nature of a windshield replacement, waiting before driving with a new windshield is important. When performing a windshield replacement in Tucson, Arizona, we use industrial-strength adhesive to secure the glass. While the process often won’t take longer than an hour, the adhesive needs time to solidify. The drying process typically takes place about an hour after the windshield replacement is performed. Before the glue sets in, it can be hazardous to drive.

Once the adhesive solidifies, the ADAS will need to be recalibrated for the new windshield. After that calibration is complete, your car is safe to drive. While this may seem time-consuming, our crew will typically have everything done and dusted in about one to two hours.

Is it worth it to repair a windshield?

Absolutely. The answer is evident when you compare the cost of windshield chip repair to the price of a total windshield replacement. The longer you drive with a chip in your windshield, the greater the risk of shattering. It is much better to repair than it is to replace.

When you have a chip in the windshield, its strength is compromised. You’d be amazed how quickly a tiny chip can turn into a major problem. If left unchecked, a chipped windshield can lead to a larger crack or even a shattered windshield. Driving with a compromised windshield increases the risk of further damage or a dangerous situation. However, repairing a chipped windshield is much easier and more cost-effective than a total windshield replacement.

It is also recommended to get in touch with your car insurance company because your plan may include windshield repairs or replacements. If your coverage does not include these services, you can also check out our windshield replacement promotions and windshield repair options for local Tucson teachers.

How long does car window repair take?

It depends on the extent of the damage. With most car window repair jobs, it only takes half an hour to one hour at most. It can be a little longer if we need to replace a side window. While the process of car window repair is extensive, our crew handles it quickly and conveniently. We strive to be on site within 24 hours of your call. Once on the scene, we’ll assess and repair your window damages before you know it.

How much does a windshield chip repair cost?

It depends on the nature of the repair work. If you’re looking for a simple windshield chip repair, the cost will be much lower than replacing a windshield. While we are unable to give you an exact price on our website for your auto glass repair, we will gladly provide you with a quote. Simply contact our team for an assessment of your auto glass repair or replacement. We promise to give you an accurate quote for an affordable service.

There is no shortage of options when looking for windshield repair in Tucson. But you will want the best technicians in the business working on your vehicle. With Max Auto Glass on the job, you can trust that it’ll be done right.

Why does my ADAS need to be recalibrated after a windshield replacement?

Modern windshields are more than just a piece of glass. With the ever-changing tech that cars are equipped with, windshields have evolved to be an important safety component. Many systems use windshields to monitor the surroundings, engage wipers, prevent theft, etc. The Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) must be calibrated precisely with so many different operations depending on the windshield.

When you replace a windshield, it can skew the precise calibration of your ADAS. If the ADAS does not work correctly, it could lead to system failures, unsafe driving or frustrating errors with your vehicle. That’s why it’s essential to have a professional recalibrate your ADAS after a windshield replacement.
