Windshields and Tech

Advanced Windshield Technology

Many of you are familiar with automatic windshield wipers, which are controlled by a rain sensor on the glass.  This technology has been with us for several years and a windshield can be replaced without any need to access the vehicle control modules. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) take windshield technology to a much higher level, with features such as forward facing cameras. These systems need to be recalibrated after a windshield replacement and this recalibration requires scan tool access to the vehicle’s computer.

At Tsawwassen Collision we have the equipment and knowledge to perform this recalibration and system verification in house.
