A wheel speed sensor is also referred to as a VSS or drive dynamics control. It is essentially sort of tachometer. It is a device which reads the overall speed of the vehicle based on the rotation of the wheel. The sensor has a toothed ring which is fixed into a pickup. In the latest vehicles, data from the sensor is sent to the onboard computer. The computer then calculates and displays the speed to the driver. On some newer vehicles, the onboard computer can even slow down a speeding car to avoid collisions. All of that is made possible only by being able to read the rotation of the wheels accurately.
Well, one of the things you’ll notice is that the speedometer may not work. If it is working the speed shown on the meter may be inaccurate. There are a number of reasons for that happening, but the most common is a failing wheel speed sensor. Fortunately, getting the sensor replaced is easy and cheap. All you need to do is to find the right sensor for your vehicle because all make and model vehicles use a different type of sensor designed for it.
