Collision Position Statement
Radar Calibration Post-Repair
To: Collision Repair Industry
position statement: Radar Calibration Post-Repair
Many Nissan vehicles are equipped with front radar sensors as part of Nissan’s “Safety Shield Technology”. This radar is one of the main components that contribute to proper functioning of various vehicle features, such as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), and Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC).
It is critical that these radar devices are properly recalibrated after any repair situation to the front of the vehicle that would cause the radar sensor to be shifted, removed, reinstalled, or jolted in the collision. Nissan has taken the position that the recalibration of radar devices in the described repair situations is mandatory, without exception. Failure to follow this recommendation could result in radar malfunction, or vehicle systems, including safety features not working as originally intended, thus posing a significant risk to vehicle occupants. We ask that the general repair industry adhere to these strict guidelines for the ultimate benefit and safety of our customers.
