ADAS Calibrations: Ford Programmable Module Procedure

ADAS Calibrations: Ford Programmable Module Procedure

Sometimes a calibration isn’t a calibration until the vehicle knows about it. Sponsored by Hunter Engineering.

Sometimes a calibration isn’t a calibration until the vehicle knows about it. As Babcox Media’s Joe Keene demonstrates, merely reprogramming or replacing a particular ADAS component isn’t always enough.

In this example, a windshield repair on a Ford F-150, the vehicle needs to be “told” that the front-facing camera is coming off, its data is being saved and reloaded, and then going back on. Techs may not be aware of these extra steps.

Skipping them could mean additional diagnostic procedures will be needed, costing unexpected time and money. These procedures are necessary for all Ford vehicles.

The step-by-step onscreen guidance of ADASLink ensures such extra procedures are performed, eliminating guesswork and providing a precise and thoroughly documented calibration for more than 25 million vehicles.
