ADAS Quick Reference Now Part of ALLDATA Repair and Collision

ALLDATA’s latest update makes it easy for repairers to instantly access ADAS information, direct from the OEMs.

ALLDATA’s latest update makes it easy for auto repairers to instantly access advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) information, direct from the OEMs.

Now, clicking on ADAS Quick Reference takes users directly to vehicle-specific ADAS information in ALLDATA Repair or ALLDATA Collision, the industry’s leading repair information software products.

The ADAS Quick Reference feature:

  • Links directly to the ADAS system/component by name, such as backup camera or forward collision warning
  • Provides the location of the component that may have been damaged in a collision
  • Identifies component removal/replacement that could result in extra labor for calibration or sublet costs based on procedure complexity
  • Includes basic calibration information, required tools and prerequisites for servicing ADAS components

“With a range of ADAS now standard on new vehicles, it’s critical that service writers and technicians be prepared for any vehicle that comes into their shop,” said Satwinder Mangat, president of ALLDATA. “The new ADAS Quick Reference tool does just that; it gives them one-click access to the latest ADAS information in ALLDATA, straight from the manufacturer.”

The latest "Who Pays for What?" survey from Collision Advice and CRASH Network indicates that more than three in five shops (61%) say they're researching automaker repair procedures on “all” or “most” of the vehicles they repair, a nine percentage point gain since 2020.

“It’s still not a high enough percentage, because this must be done every time, but at least awareness of this vital step is increasing,” said Mike Anderson of Collision Advice, who conducts the quarterly surveys with CRASH Network. “OEM information is complex, and can change. I recently wrote an estimate on three of the same year and model of vehicles, but the alignment procedures and battery disconnect procedures were different based on trim levels and engine types.”
