Randolph Area Subaru Service Center Helps Drivers Keep Sensors Clear

As cars continue to get smarter, we rely more and more on their advanced features to help keep us in control and out of harm’s way. Many of these features rely on camera or radar sensors, though, which can be affected negatively by snow, ice, or leftover salt after driving on winter roads.

At our Subaru parts department near Madison, we have an intimate understanding of these components. Fortunately, that also means that we can share some knowledge with you to help you keep those sensors clear.

Subaru EyeSight sensors

Subaru Eyesight technology is mounted to the top interior of your windshield, where it’s out of your line of sight. This also means it’s a part of the windshield that many drivers forget to clear; simply be sure to clean off this part of your windshield before you hit the road. This is Subaru’s way of making it easier to keep these sensors clear

As for other sensors, like a rear view camera that could be mounted outside, you’ll need to pay particular attention to gently clean them off. Be sure to pay special attention to the front grille, both bumpers, and the rear license plate area when removing snow and ice.

Maintaining Performance Sensors

While these active safety sensors are ones that you likely interact with regularly, there are others that you might take for granted. As we roll into spring, it’s important to stay on top of maintenance at our Subaru service center near Madison to ensure these are kept clean and functional, as well.

Your ABS sensors, for instance, are located in the wheel wells. While they’re generally protected against outside contaminants, built up snow and salt can get into the workings and cause problems. By having your brakes properly maintained, you’ll make sure that this crucial sensor does its job.

To ensure that all your vehicle’s components, inside and out, are kept running smoothly, simply schedule a service appointment at Subaru of Morristown! Be sure to contact us by calling (866) 910-3466 today.
