Adjustment Procedure using ACC Setting Device VAS6430

Adjustment Procedure using ACC Setting Device VAS6430



Special tools and workshop equipment required Vehicle Diagnostic, Testing and Information System VAS5051B with corresponding diagnostic cable. Wheel alignment computer ACC Setting Device VAS6430 Note Before driving the vehicle onto the alignment stand, check whether there is a sufficiently large space between the vehicle and the VAS6430 . The distance between the VAS6430 and the vehicle must be 120 cm +/- 5 cm. If there is not sufficient space, drive vehicle backward on alignment stand in order to be able to use the corresponding space. Before beginning adjustment, interrogate Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) memory and correct any malfunctions present. Note The adjustment procedure is described here with the VAS6430 .

If there was a previous alignment, the steps under “Calibration procedure without a previous alignment” should not performed.

Calibration Procedure without a Previous Alignment

Connect battery charger. Refer to Electrical Equipment Rep. Gr. 27 General Information . Activate vehicle lift mode. Refer to Go to article “ Vehicle Lift Mode ”

. Select the ACC calibration button on the alignment computer. Install quick clamps on the rear wheels. Install measuring sensors on the rear wheels. Perform a rim run-out compensation on the rear wheels. Note The VAS6430 must not be moved on the calibration beam.

Calibration Procedure with or without a Previous Alignment

Remove the radar cover 1 on the bumper. Refer to Body Exterior Rep. Gr. 63 Removal and installation .

Now using the laser beam 3 on the VAS6430 , check if the laser beam contacts sensor lens. Note If the laser beam still meets the sensor lens at this step after adjusting the same individual toe values, the VAS6430 is aligned correctly (liitioned). If the laser beam does not meet the sensor lens, VAS6430 alignment must be performed again. Connect VAS5051/B . Connect VAS5051/5A to Data Link Connector (DLC).

Turn VAS5051/B on.

VAS5051/B is ready to operate when it displays operating modes in button fields.

Turn ignition on. Touch Guided Fault Finding . Select in succession: Brand Type Model year Version Engine Code Confirm data entered.

Wait until the VAS5051/B has checked all available control modules in vehicle.

Press the go to button and select “function/component selection”.

Then

“Body (Repair Group 01; 27; 50 - 97)”. “Electrical System (Repair group 01; 27; 50 - 97)”. “01- On Board Diagnostic (OBD) capable systems”. “13 - Distance control”. “J428 - Distance Regulation Control Module, functions”. “J428 - Distance regulation calibration”.

Now follow instructions on screen to perform adjustment.

Use the upper screw 1 and lower screw 2 for precision adjustment in “Guided Fault Finding”.

WARNING

The ACC adjustment is only accepted if “actuator test ended” is displayed in VAS5051/B .

Turn ignition off. Disconnect VAS5051/5A connector from diagnostic connection. Disconnect battery charger. Refer to Electrical Equipment Rep. Gr. 27 General Information . Install the radar cover 1 on the bumper. Refer to Body Exterior Rep. Gr. 63 Removal and installation .
