However this system usually requires a calibration after a windshield replacement or a collision involving the vehicle.

If there is a replacement of windshield, suspension, a wheel alignment or vehicle body repair, this may cause the calibration to be off and will not work correctly even if you are not seeing a warning light.

A misaligned camera or radar sensor could definitely endanger the system operation and may cause an accident or injury. As it is fully intergrated into the vehicle power and braking system.
The systems can malfunction without immediately creating a fault code or warning and often invisible to scan tools.
