OEM Replacement Sensors

The advancement of technology has made life easy, even in automotive, as they now feature sensors that send information about the condition of the vehicle. The technology has involved artificial intelligence and mobile connectivity. Sensors are now one of the essential device vehicles must include on modern designs.

Modern vehicles are now so convenient that the internet is now accessible, relaxation while the vehicle is on self-driving mode, effective communication, etc. All these are part of the functional aspect of a sensor device. With the component, the engine has the ability and intelligence to know and make changes when necessary.

Nevertheless, the primary functions of all terms called sensors in automobiles still remain the same in their various application. The information about the application they monitor to the computer (ECU) which works with algorithms. The algorithms already contain the various conditions that the device can experience, so when such occurs the computer could make changes to the correct situation. Whenever the computer could not make the adjustment, it sends warning information to the driver.

Types of Sensors used in Automobiles

Automobile sensors are intelligent sensors which can be used to control and process the pressure of oil, temperature, level of emission, coolant levels, etc. There are different types of sensors used in automobiles, but knowing the working of these sensors is essential. In order to the function of these sensors, here we have listed some popular sensors used in automobiles which include the following.


  • Mass airflow sensor
  • Engine Speed Sensor
  • Oxygen Sensor
  • Spark Knock Sensor
  • Coolant Sensor
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAF) Sensor
  • Fuel Temperature Sensor
  • Voltage sensor
  • Camshaft Position Sensor
  • Throttle Position Sensor
  • Vehicle Speed Sensor

The working of sensors is accomplished by the process called multiplexing, it’s consolidated wires in a microprocessor that ensures the operation never go out of control. giving an example on sensor powering engine cooling system, since the cooling system is broad it could contain one or more sensors. So, immediately the engine starts running, the sensors that monitoring every aspect of the cooling system, starting from the radiator to the overflow tank. So, whenever any component of the cooling system goes wrong, information is sent to the driver. The sensor will notice low coolant in the system.
