Locating ADAS Information: GM - UPDATE

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 General Motors (GM).

Log into www.acdelcotds.com and go to the vehicle-specific service manual.

Once the service manual is open, ADAS information is found in the following categories:

  • Safety and Security: This is where information on systems like lane keep assist, blind spot detection, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and park assist is found.
  • Driver Information and Entertainment: This is where information on systems like 360 camera view and rear view is found.
  • Body Systems: This is where information on adaptive lighting is found.

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.

GM also has general ADAS information and calibration events in their Driver Assistance Systems Configuration document.
