Some safety systems are sensitive to optical and geometric tolerances, glass thickness and mass. The City Safety software is configured for every specific windscreen variant. Correct function can only be guaranteed by a windscreen with correct features and tolerances in combination with correct configured software.
It is necessary to calibrate the Forward Sensing Module using our unique diagnostic equipment (VIDA), in order to secure the functionality of Collision Warning with Full Autobrake and Pedestrian Detection, when a windscreen has been replaced.
Factors differing Volvo original equipment parts from non genuine parts:
