Repairer Driven News: 2020 Honda CR-V

Posted on 30 September 2019

Repairer Driven News (RDN) released an article on the changes to the 2020 CR-V. The Honda CR-V now comes standard with Honda Sensing for all trim packages. This means that 90% of their entire vehicle line up is equipped with this system. With more advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), it is even more important to follow OEM procedures for calibrating these systems. In an earlier position statement, Honda states: “The proliferation of electronic control systems has increased the number of potential DTCs beyond the point where a dashboard indicator can be installed and/or illuminated for every DTC. Dashboard indicators are intended for driver notification, not vehicle diagnostics.”

Repairing Blind Spot Sensor Mounting Locations: Honda/Acura

Posted on 29 August 2019

As part of the research conducted by the I-CAR RTS team for the OEM Calibration Requirements Search, we have found that some OEMs provide measurements for blind spot sensor mounting locations. When this mounting location information is found, we will publish articles highlighting the information and where to locate it for that specific OEM.

When performing repairs, having measurements is a way to ensure the vehicle is repaired correctly. However, measurements are not always given for body panels. This typically isn’t a problem, until there are advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) involved, such as blind spot sensors. When mounting blind spot sensors on body panels, it can be crucial to have the mounting location straightened to the correct measurement. Some OEMs not only give measurements but may also provide alternative measuring methods to identify that the sensor is looking in the right direction. Let's see what Honda/Acura has to say.

Posted on 1 June 2017

The addition of the OEM Calibration Requirements Search to the RTS portal was a big step for the collision industry.

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 Honda/Acura vehicles.

Battery Disconnect Considerations

Posted on 21 February 2017

When a damaged vehicle enters a collision repair facility, many times the repairs require the battery to be disconnected. Operations such as welding, SRS repairs, engine work, and body panels being open for extended periods of time, can all require that the battery be disconnected. At one time the radio presets would be written down before the battery was disconnected and programmed after the battery was reconnected. However, today many OEMs have special precautions or steps that need to be taken when disconnecting the battery. Let’s take a look at what some OEMs require when disconnecting the battery.
