Delphi has announced the introduction of seven new sensors covering nearly 6 million North American Audi, Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz vehicles from 1985 to present. Part numbers include: TS10236, TS10245, TS10251, TS10269, TS10278, TS10279 and TS10281.
Temperature sensors monitor the temperature of the engine coolant. When the coolant temperature changes, the sensor notifies the ECM. The ECM triggers the check engine light when the coolant gets too hot and the engine is about to overheat.
Manufactured to meet or exceed OE requirements and testing, Delphi says its one-piece design and automated production process eliminates internal connectors and failure points. A rugged plastic shell and thermistor pre-mold subassembly prevent stress, ensuring accurate measurements and vibration resistance, the company says. The thermistor is separate from the outer shell and is surrounded by thermally conductive fluid. Each sensor is electrically insulated to eliminate interference from other components in the vehicle.
