VEMO Crankshaft Sensor - Keep your engine firing in sync

The crankshaft sensor (also referred to as a crank angle sensor, crankshaft position sensoror crank pulse sensor works in unison with the camshaft position sensor to determine the position of the camshaft in relation to the crankshaft. This info is transmitted to your ECU and then communicated to the injectors and ignition system so that the correct cylinders are firing at the correct time.

When you buy VEMO sensors, you're buying the best quality. VEMO utilise the latest advancements, including componentry sourced from HP (Hewlett Packard) and Infineon as well as iSP-technology antistatic packaging. This intelligent switch/sensor housing method secures the programmed chip components in the interior or VEMO sensors and ensures a perfect, high-quality product. Undergoing strict quality scrutiny and rigorous product testing, VEMO switches and sensors are made with high-quality materials and high quality manufacturing procedures which means they are OEM certified and the perfect alternative to the original part. Some of VEMO's range of switches and sensors includes:

  • Wheel speed sensors
  • Coolant temperature switches/sensors
  • Crankshaft sensors
  • Camshaft sensor
  • Brake light switches
  • Boost pressure switches/sensors
  • Oil pressure switches/sensors
  • Oxygen sensors

Gone are the days of carburettors and points ignition, when it comes to running modern cars pretty much everything is electronically calculated, adjusted, transmitted and actuated by your ECU (Engine Control Unit) or ECM (Engine Control Module). Whilst the ECU is able to do all the clever calculations and literally operate your car, it relies on a myriad of switches and sensors to transmit all of the necessary information it requires in order to allow the ECU to do its job including oil pressure, fuel pressure, coolant temperature, A/C pressure, power steering pressure and even fuel temperature. Behaving as your car's nervous system, faults in automotive switches or sensors can cause issues such as a lack of power, poor efficiency, overheating, internal engine damage or a car that won't run, start or idle at all. Whilst your switches and sensors will take care of engine vitals such as oil pressure indication, coolant temperature and oil temperature, various switches and sensors also allow the operation of some of the extra features you wouldn't want to be without including air conditioning systems, electric windows and even interior lights.

Subjected to harsh under-bonnet conditions and tough road use, just like other components of your car, old switches and sensors can fail over time and give incorrect data or no data at all to the ECU. Often these issues will flag up a check engine light on the car which is handy if you have a code reader, however sometimes the issue will remain a mystery. We recommend testing your suspect sensors with a multi-meter to track down the issue. By testing for continuity, voltage and resistance, you can confirm the issue and get stuck into fitting a replacement sensor. By fitting quality replacement switches and sensors to your car, you can drive with the confidence that your car will run to its maximum potential in terms of power, efficiency and longevity and that all of your car's features will continue to operate correctly for time to come. If you're replacing a sensor or switch, shop our whole range on the Repco website or visit your nearest Repco store and speak with one of our team.
