ADAS Windshield Recalibration Services in Myrtle Beach, SC

Following a windshield replacement, recalibration of your vehicle’s camera and sensor systems is crucial to maintain functionality of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Associated Windshield Specialist provides top-tier windshield recalibration services to ensure that all safety features continue to operate correctly. Our technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to accurately recalibrate front-facing cameras and sensors, aligning them perfectly with the new glass. This essential service guarantees that your ADAS features, such as automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assistance, perform as intended for your safety on the road.

At Associated Windshield Specialists, we are acutely aware of the vital importance of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in improving road safety and minimizing the frequency and severity of traffic accidents. Research from the National Safety Council statistics reveal that ADAS technologies could potentially prevent approximately 20,841 deaths annually, which represents about 62% of all traffic fatalities. A significant portion of these prevented deaths—14,844—can be attributed to lane keeping assist features, while pedestrian automatic braking systems account for an additional 4,106 lives saved each year. This data underscores the critical role that these technologies play in safeguarding lives on the road.


Types of ADAS Systems:

One of the key components of ADAS is its reliance on cameras mounted on the windshield and sometimes on the headliner. This positioning is integral to their operation but necessitates a specialized service whenever a windshield is replaced. Manufacturers mandate a precise process known as camera recalibration to ensure that the system continues to function effectively, accurately detecting lane markers and other safety cues.

Recalibration is an intricate task that should only be performed by professional technicians who are not only trained but also certified to comprehend and implement the specific requirements and procedures set out by vehicle manufacturers. At Associated Windshield Specialists, our experts are equipped with the knowledge and tools to execute these recalibrations meticulously, ensuring your vehicle’s ADAS features work as intended for your safety on the road.


Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

Forward-facing cameras integrated into your vehicle’s safety features are designed to notify the driver through audible alerts or vibrations if the vehicle begins to drift from its lane without the activation of the turn signals.


Lane Keep Assist (LKA)

A front-facing camera that alerts and assists the driver in maintaining lane integrity by preventing unintentional lane departures.


Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Adaptive Cruise Control is designed to modify a vehicle’s speed to keep a safe distance from the car ahead while also adhering to set speed limits.


Forward Collision Alert (FCA)

Forward-facing cameras which are essential for maintaining the safety feature that measures the gap between your vehicle and the one ahead. This system alerts drivers with an audible beeping noise if the distance closes to a potentially unsafe range.


Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)

Blind Spot Monitoring is a sophisticated technology designed to identify vehicles that are adjacent to or behind the driver’s side. When a vehicle is spotted in these blind spot areas, the system alerts the driver through various indicators such as a visual warning, an audible beep or buzz, or a tactile vibration. This feature helps enhance driving safety by assisting drivers in being aware of their surroundings.


Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)

Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) is a cutting-edge system designed to enhance road safety by enabling vehicles to detect and interpret various traffic signs like “speed limits”, “children at play”, and “turn ahead” warnings. This innovative technology captures these important cues and conveniently projects the information onto the vehicle’s infotainment screen, keeping drivers informed and aware while on the road.


Pedestrian Detection(PD)

The Pedestrian Detection  system is designed to enhance driver awareness by providing alerts if pedestrians or other moving objects, such as cyclists, are in close proximity to the vehicle’s trajectory.

At Associated Windshield Specialists, our team of certified experts is extensively trained to conduct the intricate recalibration process essential for maintaining your vehicle’s safety.

Types of Calibration:

Static Calibration

At Associated Windshield Specialists, static calibration is meticulously conducted inside our facility while your vehicle remains stationary.

Gotta say that I was blessed to have called Associated first. While on vacation in North Myrtle Beach, my driver side window on my truck was smashed over night during a rash of robberies in the area. I called Associated based on the reviews and the fact that they come to me for the repairs. The owner (?) was very polite and very ready to help even though he was starting to get a ton of calls from other people affected by the robberies. In short, my window was replaced in less than 4 hours from when I called. Highly recommend. They bailed me out of a bad situation when I was 12 hours from home.

I needed a quick repair when my rear window was shattered and I had to drive back to FL the next day. After calling four other places I spoke with Gary and he quickly assured me that he could not only find my glass but also do the repair the same day. He was professional and true to his word. Within 30 minutes he had me set up and even texted me my insurance contact information. The tech was friendly and efficient. Everything was done to my satisfaction. Don't know what I would have done without Associated Windshield. Great customer service.

Awesome grip of guys... Got me set up on vacation, and made it effortless on my part, and 1/2 the price of the "SAFE" competition
00:54 07/22/21
While on vacation I encountered a rock chip that ultimately spidered its way almost across entire windshield. I searched out this company online and they were better than advertised. Gary handled the entire process from start to finish. He even came to pickup vehicle because sensors had to be calibrated. I could not be happier with how things were taken care of. I highly recommend these guys.
22:45 05/16/21
I was in crisis mode when my commercial truck came back from the landfill with a massive crack about to spider across the entire windshield. It was Friday at 2:30pm and I had that vehicle scheduled for an out of town job first thing Monday morning. Due to DOT regulations, the vehicle had to be grounded until the windshield was replaced. After calling the national name brand company and receiving the devastating news that they could not do the replacement until the following Thursday - I searched around for a local vendor, which was when I found Associated Windshield. I spoke with Gary, and he informed me, by some miracle, that they had one windshield in-stock that matched my box truck model. He was able to schedule me the following day, a Saturday. The replacement was expertly installed by Tom and my crisis was adverted.I will never go to another company again and highly recommend Gary / Associated Windshield and Tom "The Glass Dude".
17:10 04/24/21
I contacted Gary at Associated Windshield after our drivers side window was cracked by a stone that was kicked up by a passing car. Gary was easy to work with and was able to get me an appointment for the following morning. (the competition didn't have an opening for days). The insurance process was painless. The next morning Tom the installer showed up promptly, and had the replacement window installed quickly. He was very professional and neat. A true gentleman. I highly recommend them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section provided by Associated Windshield Specialists, where we address your most common queries about our windshield repair, replacement, and recalibration services.

Recently Asked Topics

Can I drive my vehicle immediately after a windshield replacement without calibration?

It is not advisable to drive your vehicle immediately after a windshield replacement without undergoing ADAS calibration, especially if your vehicle relies on these systems for safety features. Driving without calibration can result in ADAS malfunctions, such as impaired camera vision and sensor alignment, which can compromise the functionality of systems like lane keeping assistance and collision prevention. To ensure your safety and the proper functioning of your vehicle’s ADAS, it is best to complete the necessary calibration before driving.

Do I need to recalibrate my ADAS when I replace my windshield?

Yes, recalibrating your Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) is typically necessary after replacing your windshield. This is because the cameras and sensors that ADAS uses to function might be mounted on the windshield, and their alignment could be disturbed during windshield replacement. Recalibration ensures that these systems continue to operate accurately and safely.

How often should windshield calibration be done?

Windshield calibration should be done whenever you replace the windshield, after any major front-end collision, or if an error message is displayed regarding the ADAS system. Additionally, it’s wise to have the system checked periodically as recommended by the vehicle’s manufacturer, which could be part of regular maintenance schedules or in alignment with specific mileage intervals.

What happens if I don’t calibrate my windshield?

Failing to recalibrate your windshield after replacement when your vehicle has ADAS can lead to significant issues. Misalignment of ADAS sensors and cameras can result in faulty system operations. This might include improper functioning of features like automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assistance, and other safety mechanisms, potentially increasing the risk of accidents.

What happens if a sensor is not calibrated?

If a sensor is not calibrated, the ADAS may not function as designed. This can lead to inaccurate data being used by the system, which might impair the vehicle’s ability to detect and respond to conditions on the road accurately. Un-calibrated sensors can cause errors in system outputs such as false warnings, non-responsiveness, or inappropriate actions by the system, which could compromise vehicle safety.
