The Grand Cherokee (WL) is also equipped with many different advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). With these systems comes many cameras and sensors throughout the vehicle, located in the front bumper cover, windshield, rear bumper cover, and liftgate.

Knowing what systems the vehicle is equipped with and where the system components are located is important to keep in mind when performing repairs. Many repairs cause these cameras and sensors to require calibration.

Always check the vehicle-specific service information to find out if the cameras or sensors on the vehicle require calibration after repairs. Not calibrating these components may keep the ADAS from functioning as intended. If ADAS is not functioning properly, it could be a huge safety risk to passengers of that vehicle and others on the road.
