Don’t Get Your ADAS Kicked:  AAPEX ‘Let’s Tech & Tour’ Session Is Focused  on Servicing Advanced Technology-Equipped Vehicles



Vehicles equipped with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) require special service operations or the advanced technology may be inadvertently disabled. The Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) and Seyfer Automotive will present a “Let’s Tech” session at AAPEX 2016 focused on servicing ADAS-equipped vehicles.

“Don’t Get Your ADAS Kicked,” presented by Chris Gardner of AASA and Donny Seyfer of Seyfer Automotive, is slated for 10-10:20 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3, at the AAPEX TV/Let’s Tech Lounge (Level 2 Lobby). Gardner and Seyfer will discuss how routine maintenance such as brake jobs or front end alignments can result in disabling lane change warning or adaptive cruise control functionality. The session also will include a tour of advanced technology exhibits at AAPEX.

AAPEX 2016 will be held Tuesday, Nov. 1 through Thursday, Nov. 3, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, with AAPEXedu sessions starting on Monday, Oct. 31. It represents the $328.2 billion global aftermarket auto parts industry, and is co-owned by the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA), the light vehicle aftermarket division of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA), and the Auto Care Association.
