When the radar sensor, ACCM(Adaptive Cruise Control Module), or front bumper was replaced or it did not accord with the maintenance alignment requirements, you’ll need to do radar calibration on the vehicle.
How to use Launch X-431 PAD VII to do radar calibration?
Here we’re taking a Ford F-150 2019 as an example to show the procedure step by step.
(Software version: Ford V48.50 or above)
Automatically Search >> Yes >> Special Functions/ ADAS(Advanced Driver Assistance System Calibration) >> Electrical >> Cruise Control
Step6 Select “CCM#1(Cruise Control Module) calibration”;
Step7 Follow the prompt to confirm the conditions that need to be met;
Step8 The scanner will prompt that a Fault Code will be generated when the ignition is switched OFF before the calibration is complete.
Step9 Drive vehicle between 50 and 80kph to perform the radar calibration. Keep driving until “Front sensor is not aligned” disappears. If the vehicle is equipped with stop/start, please manually disable it before you start driving.
Step10 You’ll get a prompt that the function executed successfully.
Step11 Exit the calibration menu then clean down any fault codes.
Just follow the tutorial, using X-431 PAD 7 Diagnostic Tool to perform radar calibration for vehicles will be much easier.
