Additional Calibration Requirements: Honda/Acura

Additional Calibration Requirements: Honda/Acura

The addition of the OEM Calibration Requirements Search to the RTS portal was a big step for the collision industry. While this new feature has been well received, there has been some confusion about what is included in the search tool. OEM Calibration Requirements Search is designed to provide information on the calibration requirements that are needed for vehicles equipped with advance driver assistance systems (ADAS). This includes systems such as adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and collision braking.

It does not include occupant classification systems (OCS), steering angle sensors, battery disconnects, or other calibrations/initializations required, when not related directly to ADAS. Let’s take a look at what additional items may require calibrations/initializations on Honda/Acura vehicles.

Additional calibrations can be found in the vehicle-specific body repair manuals. Some systems that may require calibration after removal, replacement, or battery disconnect for Honda/Acura are the:

  • moonroof.
  • power windows.
  • steering angle sensor.
  • occupant classification system (OCS).
  • liftgate.
  • outside air temperature sensor.

There are many more systems that may need to be calibrated after removal or a collision. Make sure to check the repair manual to know what systems may be affected by the repairs that you are performing to ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
