Blind spot and parking assist systems have gone from luxuries to mainstream. Calibration Requirements for Blind Spot and Parking Assist Systems is a one-hour course that will cover several manufacturers’ systems and help technicians identify if a vehicle has either system and what needs to be done after the repair to ensure the system is working properly.

Course Content
Module 1 – Description and Identification
The course starts with describing blind spot and park assist systems on a vehicle, how to identify whether the vehicle is equipped with the systems, and listing events that may require some type of calibration or initialization.

Module 2 – Blind Spot Systems
This module describes the location and function of blind spot system parts, and shows what steps different vehicle makers require when the blind spot system is compromised. Requirement examples from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Company, Honda/Acura, Hyundai, Mazda, Kia, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota/Lexus, and Volkswagen/Audi are featured.

Module 3 – Park Assist System Calibrations
Next, the course looks at the requirements for calibrating park assist systems. This module will cover the differences between front and rear park assist systems and active park assist systems (that assist in parallel parking a vehicle automatically). Requirement examples for the Ford F-150 and Toyota Prius are featured.

 

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify if a vehicle is equipped with a blind spot system, front or rear park assist system, or active park assist system
  • Identify what special tools are required for calibration of these systems
  • Explain the procedures for calibrating these millimeter wave radar and ultrasonic sensor systems
