Repairify urges workshops to get involved with ADAS calibration

By autotech-nath on December 16, 2023

As routine servicing and repairs become evermore complex, we highlight new tools, equipment and support services available to keep you ahead of the game.

What type of garages should be conducting ADAS repairs?
As of last year, all new vehicles are fitted with anti-braking and other ADAS features as standard, so cars coming out of their three-year warranty and no longer serviced by a franchise dealer, will need ADAS features that need calibrating.

Repairify urges workshops to get ahead of the competition and consider this new revenue stream by investing in the appropriate tools and training now, as even a straightforward wheel alignment on certain models will require an ADAS reset and calibration.

Director Martin Brown says, “Workshops that want to safeguard their business for the future and grow the ADAS repair opportunity should consider working closely with a company such as Repairify, as we can provide technicians with the skills and confidence that they are employing OEM tools and methods to calibrate, reset and programme components correctly and safely, supported by remote services carried out by our IMI-trained technicians.” The company also supports garages with a global insurance policy so that in the event an ADAS repair goes wrong, the chat function on its app and website produces a written transcript of the process, should a claim be made.

Its asTech Digital ADAS Calibration System has now been updated to support new Nissan Juke and Qashqai models, providing access through the secure gateway on the device.

Top tips when calibrating ADAS systems:

  • Remember that an ADAS system can be affected by anything that can change the sensor detection or location
  • Digest all the calibration instructions on the diagnostic tool before starting work
  • Take your time when doing the calibration – if you rush the set-up, it increases the chance of the calibration not being completed properly
  • Make sure the vehicle is on level ground during static calibrations
  • Road test the vehicle after calibration ensuring the systems work correctly
  • Complete certification that complies with IIR requirements.

New tool designed to help resolve complex issues…

Opus IVS has introduced the FixPro diagnostic tool, combining its BlueBox legacy single-brand diagnostics and DrivoPro’s IVS 360 and Remote Assist Program (RAP). Technicians can access comprehensive diagnostic information for a wide range of vehicle makes and models and step-by-step instructions for repairs using IVS 360 directly via the device. Workshops working with one brand have the option to select and pay for just the one, such as JLR, BMW and VAG.
