When you talk about the dodge Cummins throttle position sensor, you have to mention its various sensors. Below are the functions and features of various sensors used in the dodge Cummins Traction Control Module:
Kick down switch
The rocker switch is used to determine the gas pressure at the full drilling position, in which case the traction control module transmits the least possible power for full use of the engine. This feature of the 2004.5 dodge Cummins throttle position sensor is very useful when the vehicle is climbing a very steep slope or uphill. The throttle communicates with the throttle position sensor to determine the position of the accelerator pedal.
Switch off the light switch
The transmission control unit uses the brake light switches to make a specific decision, such as sliding down to improve the brake performance of the engine.
Traction control system
The traction control system works in conjunction with the drilling status sensor to provide information on road conditions. In poor road conditions, the clamp can be replaced with a higher gear by changing the gear shift program.
The throttle valve consists of simple electrical switches that can detect the presence or absence of liquid pressure in a hydraulic pipe. These switches are used to determine vehicle hydraulic control issues.
Cruise control module
The cruise control module works in conjunction with the Cummins throttle position sensor unit to send a throttle position signal to affect the transmission behavior. This ensures that the transmission will not accidentally change gears when cruise control is activated.
You can find many automatic transmissions that have the function of locking the gear selector with electromagnetic lock gears. This ensures that the range of motion will not be selected when you are not pressing the brake pedal.
Hydraulic transformer clutch solenoid valve
Dodge Cummins uses torque converter clutch solenoid valves to electronically control and regulate the torque converter. According to different driving conditions, it can increase or decrease the lock-up of the torque converter, which can significantly improve the overall fuel economy of the car.
Export to ECU
The transmission control unit communicates with the engine control unit to reduce the load on the transmission during throttling. When the accelerator pedal is suddenly depressed to reduce the total amount of fuel in the fuel-air mixture or to slow down the ignition time by a few milliseconds, the throttle feeds the data to the ECU. This function ensures smooth gear changes, even if the engine produces a lot of torque.
Exit to another controller
The Dodge Cummins throttle position sensor sends information about the position of the transmission and its various components to other controllers. They are also used to store fault codes in the car’s memory and to turn on warning lights on the car’s dashboard.
