Genesis Sedan Lane Departure Warning System Calibration
By the ALLDATA Collision Team
The technology just keeps on coming! Systems you now commonly see in your shop include backup cameras, front view cameras, programmable seats and mirrors, collision avoidance, blind-spot alert, parking assist, rear-mounted radar, night vision with pedestrian detection, automatic high-beam control, lane departure systems and more. While some of this technology was previously reserved for the luxury segment, many sophisticated systems are now available on mainstream family cars.
When you repair a vehicle, some or all of this technology may need reprogramming or recalibration. That’s when OEM procedures are essential to keep your shop productive. You shouldn’t have to waste time trying to figure it out when the instructions are readily available.
Here is an excerpt from Hyundai on how to calibrate the Lane Departure Warning System on a Hyundai® Genesis® sedan.
This bulletin describes the procedure to calibrate the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) for the Genesis sedan. Calibration must be performed for the following items:
New LDWS module installed
DTC C1364 – Not Found Reference Point Code
After repairing roof panel
When repairing the LDWS module mounting bracket
After vehicle repair resulting from an accident
2012 – 2014 Genesis Sedan equipped with Lane Departure Warning System
Target Jig – P/N 09890-3N100
Always refer to the OEM information in ALLDATA Collision® S3500 before beginning any repair.
Install the calibration Target Jig on the hood approximately 3.5 inches (9.9 cm) away from the grill.
Vehicle must be parked on a flat and level surface.
Ensure windshield is free of any debris, dirt/blemishes and/or aftermarket windshield tinting which can obstruct the line of sight between the LDWS camera and Target Jig.
Connect the VCI DLC cable to the data link connector located underneath the driver crash pad.
From the System Screen, select ‘LDWS’ and click OK.
Under ‘Vehicle S/W Management,’ select ‘Option Treatment’ icon.
Select ‘LDWS Reference Point Calibration’ under Data Treatment.
Select ‘C2’ calibration.
‘Calibration Completed’ screen will be displayed if calibration was successful.
X Point and Y Point coordinates will also be displayed.
Specification range for X and Y Points – X Point: 183-199 – Y Point: 145-189
If calibration is unsuccessful, adjust Target Jig accordingly and recalibrate.
Clear any DTCs in history.
Test LDWS on the road with well-painted lane lines to validate successful calibration. The lane line must be crossed without use of the turn signal for a warning to be generated.
Perform when safe to do so. Test should not be performed if other vehicles are in the proximity of the vehicle being tested.
