ABS Wheel Speed Sensor
As part of the wheel hub and air brake systems, the ABS wheel speed sensor works in conjunction with the other parts of the wheel to make sure the vehicle is driving safely and efficiently. Also known as the Anti-lock Braking System, the ABS sensor measures the rotational speed of the wheels and reports those measurements back to the Engine Control Module (ECM). Alerts are triggered in the dashboard if the ABS sensor detects that something is off. The ABS system ensures proper steering while braking, which is crucial for driver and motorist safety.
The wheel speed sensor is a part that has had major evolutions over the years. The location of the ABS sensor and the exact mechanisms of action can vary from brand to brand.
