Additional Calibration Requirements: Jaguar Land Rover

Additional Calibration Requirements: Jaguar Land Rover

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. The 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 Jaguar Land Rover vehicles.

There are various systems that require a calibration or initialization after removal, replacement, or when the battery is disconnected. The additional calibrations are found in vehicle-specific repair manuals. Some items that require calibration include the:

  • power windows.
  • occupant classification system (OCS).
  • driver seat module.
  • rear door sunscreen.

If the battery is reconnected there is a certain procedure that needs to be performed. Per the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace repair manual: “Following reconnection of the battery, the engine should be allowed to idle until it has reached normal operating temperature as the stored idle and drive values contained within the ECM have been lost. Allow the vehicle to idle for a further three minutes. Drive the vehicle at constant speeds of approximately 48 km/h (30 mph), 64 km/h (40 mph), 80 km/h (50 mph), 96 km/h (60 mph) and 112 km/h (70 mph) for three minutes each. This will allow the ECM to relearn idle and drive values, and may cause driveability concerns if the procedure is not carried out.”

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.
