Locating ADAS Information: Toyota/Lexus

Locating ADAS Information: Toyota/Lexus

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). However, 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 Toyota/Lexus.

After accessing your subscription, go into the Repair Manual (RM) tab. Once you are in the repair manual there are three main areas that ADAS information will be found:

  • Audio/Visual/Telematics: This will give you the information on all park assist systems, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic, 360° camera system, and night vision if available.
  • Engine/Hybrid System: This is where information on systems like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and collision braking/warning systems can be found.
  • Vehicle Interior: Depending on available equipment, collision braking/warning may be housed in this location.

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.
