Calibrating adaptive cruise control

Requirements

  • The adaptive cruise control unit - J428- needs to be calibrated if the following conditions apply:
    • Adaptive cruise control unit - J428- has been removed and then reinstalled or it has been renewed.
    • Bumping into adaptive cruise control unit - J428- due to incautious installation of front bumper carrier.
    • Damage to the front bumper carrier as a result of a front-end collision or similar.
    • The front bumper carrier has been removed and then reinstalled or it has been renewed.
    • Rear axle toe has been adjusted.

Note

  • Excessive horizontal adjustment of the adaptive cruise control unit - J428- results in permanent deactivation of the functions ACC/front scan system. This is displayed in the dash panel insert - KX2- by the following message: ACC / Front Assist not available.
  • Limited sensor functionality due to soiling or weather conditions such as heavy rain, snowfall, sensor icing etc. results in a temporary non-availability of the functions ACC/front scan system. This is displayed in the dash panel insert - KX2- by the following message: ACC / Front Assist: Sensor without view.

 

  • Calibrate adaptive cruise control.
