vehicle speed sensor
« on: May 06, 2019, 02:49:53 »
Has anyone installed a 'vehicle speed sensor' on their Pagoda? Something along these lines

or
https://www.amazon.ca/Rostra-Speed-Signal-Generator-250-4153/dp/B0089MQ3R0

I'm trying to figure out a specific unit that would be an easy fit. The idea is to generate a wave pulse for speed feedback to a cruise control unit. I prefer to use something like this, rather than mount magnets on the driveshaft.

Thanks,

Meyer

Thanks Chris. I ended up using the unit from Sailes; this was for a cruise control installation. It was pretty seamless apart from having to install it at the back of the speedometer.

Hi WRe,

That could be useful for others attempting this. I looked around for info on the VDO sensor. As far as I can figure out, it's VDO p/n 2152.30300000 but I can't find a place to buy it. Some posts said it was NLA. Any additional info would help.

Hi,
I coudn't find it either. Old GM cars used similar sensors (GM 90148828*), you should check if it has the same size for the speedo access (M18 x 1,5).
Technical specifications of the VDO sensor: 100 mV needle impulse, 13V, 17 mA, 6 impulses per rev.
