Advanced Safety System Recalibration
Automotive windshields have become increasingly complex over the years to accommodate newer safety features. Advanced Safety Systems “ADAS” has also evolved, with most newer vehicle models featuring their abilities. The front windshield camera plays a crucial role in Advanced Safety Systems “ADAS” features, including lane assist, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. Because of this, vehicles with Advanced Safety Systems must have their “ADAS” recalibrated after replacing the windshield to ensure proper operation.

Auto Glass Technology Is Rapidly Changing
The Advanced Safety System “ADAS” is responsible for the performance of most safety features in your vehicle. The “ADAS” relies on windshield-mounted cameras, lasers, and radars for feedback from the road in order to function properly. When a front windshield is replaced, these cameras, lasers, and radars will need to be calibrated with the “ADAS”, so that the safety features continue to work correctly. Failure to calibrate the system can endanger the operation of the “ADAS” and can lead to a major accident or injury.
Some Common “ADAS” Features Include
Forward Collision Alert
Adaptive Cruise Control
Lane Keep Assist
Traffic Sign Recognition
Lane Departure Warning
Blind Spot Monitoring
Driver Status Monitoring
Awesome folks who did great, speedy work. Nice, professional, fast, and the best deal in town. I seriously hope I don't need another window replaced any time soon, but if I do, I know who I'm calling.

Recommended these guys to my daughter who needed a windshield replacement. They were better than excellent. They came to the house and were done within the hour. Perfect and clean job. Reasonable price too. Highly highly recommended.

I put off replacing my windshield because my insurer kept telling me they would not pay for OEM glass even though I did plenty of research and KNEW that non-OEM glass would not work with all the sensors and features on my Audi S7. A performance shop nearby recommended Lightning so I stopped in on a whim. They took my info, concurred I'd need OEM glass and said they could handle it no problem. Next thing I know, they had OEM glass approved. Once the glass arrived, I scheduled an appointment quickly and was in and out in under 3 hours, including calibration. Friendly and knowledgeable staff that seem personally invested in getting you taken care of.

When To Have Your Windshield Cameras and ADAS Calibrated
Your Advanced Safety System “ADAS” depends on accurate feedback from the cameras and sensors on your windshield. When you have a replacement windshield installed, the “ADAS” will need to be calibrated with those devices. If your replacement windshield is not an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) windshield, it’s likely not manufactured to the same specs as the OEM windshield. This means your replacement windshield may be slightly off calibration.
When cameras and sensors are misaligned, the “ADAS” receives inaccurate feedback, which will have a negative impact on the crucial safety features listed above. Lightning Auto Glass believes that “ADAS” recalibration is an essential service, and includes it in every replacement windshield quote, assuming your vehicle has an “ADAS”. In addition to calibrating after a replacement windshield is installed, “ADAS” recalibration may need to be performed if you receive a fault code, a disconnection of the camera bracket due to breakage or detachment, or after a change of suspension or wheel alignment.
