ADAS Calibration

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.

ADAS Calibration Service

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.

  • 5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  I have been driving around with the smallest crack on my windshield since March 20 & then the pandemic happened. Through the hot summer and cold winter that little chip turned into the longest crack. After calling all these major companies you see on the commercial quoted me $800+. Then my insurance company wasn’t no better. I called Lightning Auto Glass, gave me the best quote & was able to schedule me in the next day, waited a hour and my car was fixed. Please don’t hesitate to call.

    5 star review  Safelite has done windshield repairs for me in the past, and it was always a nightmare. They break things and never do the work properly. On the contrary, the folks at Lightning know their business. They got my Land Rover in and out on time, and did it perfectly the first time. I will use them exclusively for all my windshield replacements, even when I have to pay out of pocket!

  • 5 star review  Had an appointment with Lightning auto glass this morning at 10:30a.m for a window repair to my driver side door and it was by far one of the best auto shops I've ever experienced in my 12 years of having vehicles, the receptionist Jessica was amazing, very polite, up on her knowledge, and very helpful! They seem to work pretty fast, i was in and out not a long wait like most auto places that keep you for hours. Its best to set an appointment. Their price and timing are on point!!

    5 star review  After multiple calls to other auto glass repair shops that were unproductive and often chaotic, I called Lightning Auto Glass and spoke with Jessica. From the very first call, Jessica was friendly, knowledgeable, took down my info and called me back within 10 minutes with all the needed details I was looking for. Jessica was the only person actually able to give me an exact quote while others just gave me ranges cause they couldn't tell me specifically what windshield I needed (even after providing my VIN#). Lightning also ended up being a preferred vendor of my insurance company and after setting up my claim with them, before I could even call Lightning myself, Jessica called and said she had received everything she needed and was ready to schedule a time. I was scheduled for Lighting the very next day. Drop off was easy and the replacement took much less time that I thought it would. It was done perfectly and I can't say enough good things about Lightning Auto Glass (and Jessica as well)! My only critique (and it's a small minor one) is Lightning's location. It's a small lot off a very busy road and had a very crowded parking lot making access a little difficult. I believe this is mostly due to Lightning being in such high demand making it crowded all the time! Again, this is only a minor inconvenience and well worth it for the work that was performed.

  • 5 star review  This Friday I had my front windshield replaced on my 2021 Genesis GV 80. After this experience, there is no other place in Atlanta I would go to to get my windshield replaced! From the time they took my order to the final installation everything was first class! It’s great to know that there are companies in America that you can still count on to do what they say they’re going to do!

    5 star review  Got my windows tinted here and the guys were very professional. They took the time to explain different tint options available and also went over the legal tint limits. I got all of my car windows tinted but didn't opt for the UV protection film for the windshield at that time. However, I will be back due to the quick service, excellent prices and professional staff! My car looks amazing with the new tint!

  • 5 star review  We called early in the morning and got an appointment scheduled for only a few hours later! The receptionist was very kind and let us drop the car off 20 minutes before the scheduled appointment. The service was quick, only took an hour to replace a missing passenger window and the price was very fair. They charged us what was quoted over the phone.

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.
