About Vehicle Speed Sensors

Vehicle speed sensors are sensors designed to measure the rotational speed of a component within your vehicle, whether it be the wheels that connect your vehicle to the road, or a spinning element in your vehicle's internals such as the transmission. Sparesbox stocks a range of Transmission Speed Sensors and Wheel Speed Sensors from AFI, Bosch, Fuelmiser and Hella to make finding the right Vehicle Speed Sensors easy. 

How Speed Sensors Work

Speed sensors are designed to give you and your vehicle's ECU the most accurate reading of how fast your vehicle and it's components are travelling, so both driver and vehicle are optimising their actions to deliver the best power output and fuel economy possible. As a vital component in making sure the driver is getting the most accurate reading of their vehicle's speed, they're also a crucial safety measure and important in making sure they're driving within the confines of road laws.

A crucial safety measure in any car, wheel speed sensors attach to the wheels of your car to give you an accurate reading of how fast you're travelling at any given moment. By giving you the most up to date information on the speed of your vehicle, not only will this keep you safe but it will also help you run your engine as efficiently as possible.

Many vehicles also use transmission speed sensors, which are magnetic coils that attach to the input shaft of your transmission. By measuring the rotational speed of your transmission shaft as accurately as possible, your vehicle is able to shift as smoothly as possible, thereby optimising both its performance AND fuel economy.
