What is Speedometer Module?
A Car Speedometer Module is an electronic control unit that manages the operation of the speedometer in a vehicle. The speedometer is an instrument in the dashboard that displays the vehicle's current speed, usually measured in miles per hour (mph) or kilometers per hour (km/h).
The Speedometer Module receives input signals from various sensors, such as the vehicle speed sensor or the wheel speed sensor, and uses this information to calculate the vehicle's speed. The Speedometer Module then sends this information to the speedometer display in the dashboard, where it is displayed to the driver.
In addition to displaying the current speed, some Speedometer Modules may also provide other information, such as the distance traveled, trip information, and fuel efficiency.
The Speedometer Module is typically located in the instrument cluster in the dashboard and communicates with other systems in the vehicle, such as the engine control module and the transmission control module, to ensure accurate and reliable speed measurement.
