Competition ABS Sensors
Standard vs Competition
Standard: ABS sensor# ALS1333 (GM 02-95; ranked in top 10 sellers) matches OE for output voltage, resistance, trigger wheel gap and all critical fit, form, and function measurables.
Competition: 29%-51% lower voltage output when compared to OE leading to potential ABS system failure. Incorrect mounting bracket does not match OE.
Standard: ABS Sensor# ALS198 (Ford 09-95; ranked in top 10 sellers) matches OE for output voltage, resistance, trigger wheel gap and all critical fit, form, and function measurables.
Competition: 45%-74% lower voltage output when compared to OE leading to potential ABS system failure. Inconsistent winding resistance, electrical inductance and magnetic field orientation resulting in poor sensor performance. Inconsistent gap between sensor tip and trigger wheel leading to potential sensor tip damage.
The brake pad wear sensor or brake wear indicator is an added safety feature on many vehicles used to warn drivers if their brake pad’s thickness becomes too low and their useful life is short. Brake pad wear sensors are designed to “fail” as brake pads wear. They should be changed whenever the pads are replaced or when the vehicle’s warning light indicates. Intermotor offers a broad product offering for brake pad wear sensors.
The camshaft sensor determines which cylinder is firing to establish injector synchronization and coil firing sequence in DIS systems. Crankshaft sensors set ignition timing, supply the RPM signal, and determine engine speed. Standard engineering, manufacturing and testing excellence make Standard sensors the finest in the business, hands down.
The camshaft synchronizer assembly consists of a camshaft position sensor mounted on an oil pump intermediate shaft. The synchronizer is driven off the camshaft and sends the camshaft rotational position information to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to establish injector synchronization and coil firing sequence in DIS systems.
The coolant temperature sensor changes resistance with the temperature. The coolant temperature sensor is critical to many PCM functions such as fuel injection, ignition timing, variable valve timing, and transmission shifting.
Knock sensors create a voltage signal based on the vibrations caused by detonation. The computer uses this signal to retard timing when spark knock occurs.
The MAP sensor converts engine vacuum/manifold pressure to an electrical signal so the computer knows how much load the engine is under. This data is the basis for fuel delivery and timing control.
The throttle position sensor moves with the throttle and sends a voltage signal to the computer indicating throttle angle and speed of movement data. The computer uses this data to measure engine load, adjust timing, fuel delivery, EGR, converter clutch operation and clear flood mode.
The vehicle speed sensor or VSS measures transmission/transaxle output or wheel speed. The ECM uses this information to modify engine functions such as ignition timing, air/fuel ratio, transmission shift points, as well as to initiate diagnostic routines.
A yaw rate sensor (or rotational speed sensor) measures a vehicle’s angular velocity about its vertical axis in degrees or radians per second in order to determine the orientation of the vehicle as it threatens to roll over. By comparing the vehicle’s actual yaw rate to the target yaw rate, the on-board computer can identify to what degree the vehicle may be under- or over-steering, and what corrective action, if any, is required. Corrective action may include reducing engine power as well as applying the brake on one or more wheels to realign the vehicle. The yaw rate sensor is a key component in a vehicle’s stability control or electronic stability control system designed to provide motorists with increased safety, security, and control even in the most difficult driving conditions. Standard leads the way, delivering these high-quality, high-technology sensors.

TechSmart air bag or impact sensors are used to signal a vehicle's air bag in the event of a frontal collision. The airbag sensor is an accelerometer, which is a small integrated circuit with integrated micro-mechanical elements. The microscopic mechanical element moves in response to rapid deceleration, and this motion causes a change in capacitance, which is detected by the electronics on the chip that then sends a signal to fire the airbag. Replacing a worn or failed OE sensor with a TechSmart air bag sensor provides a high-quality, yet inexpensive solution for drivers to remain safe.
The HVAC control module monitors the outside air quality while in AUTO mode using the air quality sensor. There are 2 sensors inside the air quality sensor assembly. A hydro-carbon (HC) sensor that is used for detecting gasoline exhaust fumes and a Nox sensor that is used for detecting nitrous oxide or diesel exhaust fumes. When air quality around the front of the vehicle is poor, the air quality sensor system will send a signal to the HVAC system to begin operation. TechSmart offers the aftermarket's best premium air quality sensors, ensuring that when a TechSmart sensor is installed it means problem solved!
An ambient light sensor is used to measure the amount of light outside the vehicle. It then modifies the operation of automatic headlamps, daytime running lamps, and on some makes, it will adjust the climate control unit as it can also function as a sun load sensor. When the ambient light sensor fails, vehicle’s headlamps may not illuminate even when the outside light dips below the required threshold; and the automatic temperature control will not adapt to changing conditions.
TechSmart delivers a line of proven-quality automatic headlight sensors. Automatic headlights eliminate the need for the driver to manually switch the headlights on or off. They are activated using a photoelectric sensor that senses lighting conditions at dawn or dusk. When the lighting conditions become too low, the automatic headlight sensors turn the lights on, increasing visibility for the driver. Trust TechSmart for a proven-quality solution when replacing this important safety feature.
The battery current sensor is a fuel saving component connected to the negative battery cable. This sensor monitors battery current and will shut off the alternator when it detects full charge. This helps to prevent the alternator from overcharging the battery; increasing battery life and increasing MPGs by decreasing parasitic loss from the alternator. When the battery current sensor fails, the alternator will continue to run and overcharge the battery while decreasing MPG and battery life or the alternator will not know how to kick back on at full charge, which will lead to a drained battery. Replace a failed battery current sensor with a high-quality direct replacement TechSmart unit.
The brake booster vacuum sensor senses the amount of vacuum needed to maintain proper power brake operations. If the sensor reads a low vacuum situation, it will illuminate the check engine light and give a trouble code. These can often fail when contaminated brake fluid damages the sensor; creating a potentially dangerous situation on this critical safety component. The TechSmart brake booster vacuum sensors are high-quality replacements for damaged OE sensors that will ensure that the brake system is properly monitored.
The automotive market today includes over 40 vehicle makes, over 400 models and countless variations of those models.

Count on TechSmart to provide proven-quality solutions for these key safety elements.
TechSmart also offers a line of premium-quality rain sensors. Automotive rain sensors measure the amount of light being reflected and sent back to the sensor. If the glass is wet, less light makes it back and the sensor sends a signal to the wipers to operate. This eliminates the need to constantly adjust the wipers for misty or intermittent rain situations. With a new rain sensor from TechSmart, you will keep your wipers operating efficiently and safely for the long haul.
Adding to TechSmart’s growing line of advanced technology sensors come sunload sensors. The sunload sensor works with the HVAC temp sensor located in the passenger compartment. If the sensor detects a high sunlight condition, it will signal the fan to come on at a higher-than-normal level to maintain in-cabin temperatures. Keep comfortable with premium-quality TechSmart sunload sensors.
When an OE transmission oil temperature sensor fails, it can affect drivability, transmission service life, and comfort. Often the motorist will complain that the transmission is making a loud noise, the vehicle shifts hard, and the transmission will not shift into overdrive mode. The TechSmart transmission oil temperature sensor provides the technician with a high-quality, cost-effective, direct replacement for the failed OE part.
If your Ram 5.9L or 6.7L Cummins powered truck gets a P0106 code or exhibits excessive exhaust smoke and higher exhaust gas temperatures than normal, it may be the turbocharger speed sensor causing the problem. The ECM interprets the signal from the vehicle's turbocharger speed sensor to monitor operating speed and determine if the turbo is functioning properly. If the sensor fails and the turbo falls out of normal operating spec, this could result in a very costly turbocharger replacement. Replace a failed turbocharger speed sensor with a high-quality direct replacement TechSmart unit and prevent unnecessary repair bills.

The EGR valve helps your vehicle burn fuel more efficiently and effectively by recirculating a portion of your exhaust and running it through the combustion process again. This results in a cooler, more complete burn of the fuel which decreases your vehicle’s noxious emissions by prohibiting the formation of some harmful gases.
Every Standard EGR valve is calibrated to OEM specifications for precision performance. The vacuum actuated EGR valves of the company are assembled with high-strength silicon diaphragms with steel reinforcement to extend the service life during operation. All Standard EGR valves must pass comprehensive quality testing including computer-controlled bench testing checks for resistance, leakage, and response as well as flow rates to ensure trouble-free operation before they leave Standard’s facility.
The EGR position sensor detects the movement and position of the EGR valve pintle. The EGR pressure sensor detects exhaust gas flow through the EGR passage. Standard EGR sensors use the finest components and every sensor must pass meticulous quality control to assure that each EGR sensor’s voltage output measurement will always be accurate. Each sensor undergoes a rigorous end-of-line test validating output voltages to exacting specifications for reliable, trouble-free operation.
Mechanical EGR valve position sensors are mounted on the top of the EGR valve while EGR pressure sensors will be located close to the EGR valve as the exhaust gas hose must be connected to the sensor and valve.
A malfunctioning EGR position or pressure sensor can illuminate the MIL, and may cause drivability problems. The signal is critical to the performance of the engine management system: too much flow - the engine will stall or have a rough idle; too little flow - emission gases (especially NOx) will be elevated and detonation will occur. Typical failure is due to opens, shorts, or intermittent signals.
A technician can use a scan tool to monitor the EGR position or EGR pressure data for changes during EGR operation and determine if these sensors are malfunctioning.What makes Standard EGR sensors the best.

As engine technology evolves, coil-on-plug technology will continue to play an increasingly important role in ignition systems. This product category will be at the forefront for years to come, and Standard is leading the way with an expansive selection of quality ignition components.
“The technology of the future, available for your engine today.”
The ignition coil converts a low-voltage current to high-voltage energy that is delivered to the spark plug to ignite the air/fuel mixture within the cylinder. A coil-on-plug is designed to perform the functions of both the ignition coil which creates the spark energy, and the spark plug wire set that is designed to contain and deliver the high-voltage energy to the spark plug. Standard coil-on-plug assemblies are engineered and tested to meet or exceed OE standards for spark energy, impedance, and durability.
Ignition Coil Testing
Standard performed an extensive engineering analysis of OE DG500 and DG508. The engineers measured winding resistance, inductance and output voltage, spark, energy, waveform peak voltage and ringing, as well as a complete physical and sectioned comparison to OE.
Standard ignition coils look, fit and perform like the original they replace with 100% end-of-the-line production testing. The Standard coils also provide an improved secondary winding design (additional winding bays) that helps prevent internal arcing and high-voltage breakdown.
The Standard coils match or exceed the OE coils in all categories and are an excellent replacement exceeding the OE performance.
On some GM models (4.2 inline 6 cyl. LL8 VIN code S – PRO LL8), water intrusion will cause premature failure of the coil and spark plugs — it’s not a coil problem!Signs of Premature Failure
If a customer complains of a rough idle and/or the MIL/SES light flashes on after a rain shower or car wash, this may indicate water intrusion.
Check for possible DTC codes P0300 through P0306 and inspect the coils and spark plugs. If upon inspection of the coils, a white chalk-like build-up on the inside and/or outside of the spark plug boots is detected, the coils have been damaged and must be replaced with Standard hi-quality UF303 coils. It is also advised to replace the spark plugs.The Remedy
Water can seep past the engine cam cover and collect below the coils in the spark plug wells of the cylinder head resulting in a possible misfire. To prevent this condition from reoccurring, the AIP seal must be replaced with a replacement seal that redirects the water away from the engine cam cover.

One TPMS Supplier. One complete TPMS program. Real clarity.
You know that Standard and Intermotor offer a complete TPMS line featuring OE-matching direct-fit cloneable TPMS sensors, mounting hardware, service kits, shop tools and more than 98% coverage. And that means technicians get the best of both worlds – an OE-matching TPMS sensor with advanced technology built in to make it ID cloneable, saving time and money in the bay. But did you know that these same Standard and Intermotor OE-matching cloneable TPMS sensors can be OE-relearned, work with all major TPMS service tools, and are ready-to-install right out of the box.
And that’s not all. Standard now offers the most advanced multi-coverage (multi-fit, multi-application, universal) TPMS sensor in the market today – NEW QWIK-SENSOR™!
Innovative QWIK-SENSOR™ line covers 94% of all domestic, European and Asian applications with only 3 multi-coverage TPMS sensors. They are easily programmed with the TechSmart T55003 TPMS tool and once activated can be ID-cloned or OE-relearned, at technician’s choice. Each QWIK-SENSOR™ is available in two valve stem configurations, metal or rubber to match the proper application. QWIK-SENSOR™ TPMS sensors are color coded for easy identification and come fully assembled right out of the box.
Environmental testing using SAEJ2657 certification standards
In a recent study, 42% of drivers were unable to identify the TPMS symbol.
In this study, 4 out of 10 drivers could not identify the TPMS warning light, even though 96% of drivers considered under-inflated tires an important safety concern and 89% believed that properly inflated tires and a warning system could save their lives.
This is your TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) warning light and when illuminated, it indicates that the tire pressure monitoring system has found a tire with low air pressure, a sensor with a dead battery or a TPMS system malfunction.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System is a safety device that measures, identifies and warns you when one or more of your tires are significantly under-inflated. The TPMS light on your dash will flash if there is a system malfunction, while a steady illuminated light indicates an air pressure problem.
If the TPMS light is illuminated, the first order of business is to check your tire pressure. If driving, pull over safely at the first opportunity. Once you determine you are not having a blowout, check the pressure in each tire with a tire gauge. If the problem is low tire pressure, fill your tires to the recommended pressure noted on your placard. Once corrected, most vehicles will reset the TPMS light automatically, some will require a manual reset and some may require professional attention (refer to the owner’s manual). If your TPMS light is still illuminated after correcting the air pressure or you notice any tire damage, see a professional technician immediately.
Some vehicles may feature a different TPMS display but regardless of the type of TPMS alert in your vehicle, if it’s illuminated, your vehicle is trying to tell you something. One or more of your tires is underinflated or the TPMS system itself is malfunctioning and it needs immediate attention from you or your service professional.
When it’s time to replace your TPMS sensors, there’s no need to go back to the dealer. Ask your trusted service technician for Standard and Intermotor cloneable TPMS sensors. Advanced cloneable technology ensures a perfect match, with designs that meet or exceed the quality and performance of your vehicle’s original equipment.
