What does the anti-lock braking system (ABS) do for your vehicle? It prevents the wheels from locking up whenever you hit the brakes—giving you better steering response even in sudden braking. The ABS uses a speed sensor to measure the car's speed. This data is processed and calculated by the engine computer unit (ECU), which makes the necessary adjustments to ensure better braking and control. In order for the ABS to work efficiently and effectively, you need a high quality speed sensor like the AMO Speed Sensor.The AMO Speed Sensor is a direct replacement for your stock unit. The product comes in a complete set, including installation hardware and an installation manual. Experienced do-it-yourself (DIY) mechanics can install this component in a matter of minutes. It is designed with a highly insulated body on top of its high-grade cable—giving it tremendous resistance against extreme temperature.There are four speed sensors necessary for an automobile. They are installed in every wheel. These sensors measure wheel speed for the ECU, which determines if any of these wheels are moving more slowly than the others. With the data, the ECU prevents wheel lock ups. When one wheel is moving at a slower rate than the others, the ECU automatically reduces the hydraulic pressure and braking force on that wheel.A well-functioning ABS can release and apply braking pressure for up to 20 times in a span of a second. If your ABS is not capable of doing that, replace your speed sensors with the ones from AMO. The AMO speed sensor will exceed the performance of your stock unit.
