Additional Calibration Requirements: Genesis

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 advanced 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 Genesis vehicles.

Information can be found in the various vehicle-specific repair manuals. Some systems that may require calibration after removal or replacement are the:

  • Steering limit position
  • Auto up/down windows
  • Panoramic sunroof

Genesis specifies after reconnecting the battery the auto up/down windows and the panoramic sunroof may need to be calibrated. This is found under vehicle-specific service manuals ➤ Body Electrical System ➤ General Information.

For example, per the 2023 Genesis G80 repair manual ➤ Steering System ➤ Steering Column & Shaft ➤ Steering Column Module (SCM) ➤ Repair procedures: "steering limit position setting must be done when any of the cases is met below:

  • After replacing SCM unit
  • After replacing steering
  • SCM Error"

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 help ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
