to calculate the true speed of the car taking wind speed and direction into account, like a light aircraft (TAS - true air speed)
cam or crank sensor
I'm not positive about this particular car, but on most cars the speed sensor screws into the transmission.
A sensor can be used on a car for a number of things car alarm, video sensor, traffic sensor Type your answer here...
The speed sensor can impact a number of things since it is linked to the transmission. If your vehicle has Anti-lock brakes the speed sensor is also linked to this. Relative to the transmission the speed sensor is used to control the shift points of the transmission and if the car does not shift properly it can affect the overall performance of the car as well as the longevity of your transmission and all of its parts. This is not something I would recommend left unattended. You should definitely have this looked at.
There are two speed sensors on the car. The output speed sensor is located on the transmission near the middle of the car. To get to it, the car must be lifted, either by jacks or a hydraulic lift at an auto shop. The sensor is basically under the center console of the car.
A sensor in the transmission, measures the output shaft speed.
Distance that can be traversed at that speed in that amount of time.
Vehicle speed sensor is located on top of the differential on the transmission. Access is from under the car
Crank and cam sensors, yes. Vehicle speed sensor, no.
