Locating ADAS Information: Ford/Lincoln

As a collision repair technician, there is one part of a service manual that houses all of the information you would ever need…right? This is not the case with modern vehicles. You may be required to look in numerous manuals to find the information required to safely repair the vehicle.

The Repairability Technical Support (RTS) portal has videos posted to show you how to navigate specific OEM Body Repair Manuals (BRMs), but this sometimes just gets you in the door. If you are looking for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) information in the BRM, you may not find any information at all. ADAS information is not normally located in the body repair manual. You may have to go into the service manual to find ADAS or a separate manual altogether. Luckily, the RTS team has already navigated most of the OEM repair manuals and we’ve found the ADAS information. Let’s see where to find ADAS information from Ford/Lincoln.

Once you access your subscription and get in the workshop manual, section 4: Electrical is where you want to go. Particularly 413: Instrumentation and Warning Systems and 419: Electronic Feature Group. In section 413 you will find all of the information on park assist systems including 360° camera view, rear view, park assist, and active park assist. Section 419 houses all of the drivability systems including lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and collision braking. These sections are where you will find information about these systems along with R&I, diagnostics, and calibration information.

This is also where most ADAS component R&I procedures and calibration procedures are found.

Some calibration events are found in these categories. You may also have to look in the R&I procedure for the body part that the ADAS component is attached to.
