Locating ADAS Information: FCA

Locating ADAS Information: FCA

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 Portal (RTS) 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 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

As you may know, FCA has both free and a paid subscription website. However, you will not find information on ADAS on the free website. You will need to access the paid subscription website. After you have accessed the repair manual you will want to go to Service Info. Then after that click the 08 – Electrical folder from the tree. The areas that house ADAS information are 8A – Audio/Video/Entertainment/Connectivity, 8B – Chime/Buzzer/Driver Assist, and 8E – Electronic Control Modules. Depending on what the vehicle is equipped with, information can be found in some or all of these areas.
