Vehicle: 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. Many modern vehicles have built-in enhanced safety systems, such as blind spot detection. When you do any work on these systems, a reset or recalibration needs to be done. In this Diagnostic Quick Tip, National Field Trainer Jason Gabrenas shows you how to perform a reset on the Hyundai Blind Spot Detection system using a scan tool.
A lot of newer vehicles are starting to come equipped with what they call enhanced safety systems: active cruise control, blind spot monitoring, things like that.
But when you do have to replace something in the system, say the vehicle does get in a collision or some other reason and you need to replace a part, you do have to recode it and recalibrate it to the system.
So let's walk through resetting and recalibrating the blind spot monitor radar system on this Hyundai.
The ignition is on and the tool is hooked up so let's power it up. The tool is going to automatically detect the VIN and ID the vehicle for me so I'll just click on Scanner. This is going to be under the Blind Spot Detection Module and let's do the left side first.
Then it would be under a system test: Blind Spot Detection Calibration. This function sets the blind spot detection radar after replacement.
This calibration procedure will clear any missing calibration DTCs, which allows the radar sensors to go through the self-alignment procedure. The sensors continually self-aligned while the vehicle is driven. It may take up to 30 seconds and it will not allow cancellation of the process. So once you start it you can't stop it.
It says after ignition off ignition on, so I have to cycle the ignition. Once that is done hit Continue and now it says the coding has been completed.
I'll just click Continue and that's going to stop communication with the vehicle. That's one side done so let's go through and do the right side now.
We choose that, then go back to System Tests, back to Calibration, read through the information again, click Continue and once again we have to cycle the ignition.
The ignition has been cycled so hit continue and the coding has been completed. Both sides are done.
Let's just double check for codes and make sure nothing happened when we were in there. No codes are present so it looks like this system is all set up and calibrated.
