About speed sensor
A vehicle speed sensor or speed sensor or wheel speed sensor are the different terminologies for the tachometer. The tachometer provides the wheel's rotational speed and acts as a safety control systems like traction control and ABS (Anti-lock Braking System). No reading on the speedometer when the vehicle is in motion indicates a busted tachometer or speed sensor. It is easy and takes less time to replace the speed sensor.
What is the purpose of speed sensor?
It is mainly used to determine the current speed of vehicles seen on the dashboard of the vehicle. The ECU also uses this data to regulate functions such as the transfer shift points, ignition timing and the air-fuel ratio. To increase reliability these sensors were introduced as a replacement for the mechanical sensors. The data from the velocity sensor becomes much more important with the introduction of safety systems such as ABS traction control system.
Where is speed sensor located?
The vehicle speed sensor is located on the passenger side output flange inside the transmission housing.
