An actuator is a crucial component of a truck’s electronic control system. Its job is to convert electrical control signals from the vehicle’s control unit into a physical action or force. Specific actuator functions can include controlling the operation of the throttle, directing airflow into the climate control system and regulating idle speed.

Is it time to replace a worn or malfunctioning actuator in your commercial truck? At Custom Truck One Source, we offer a wide assortment of these parts for sale to buyers across the contiguous United States and Canada.

About Our Actuator Inventory

Our broad selection includes these actuator products:

  • Cam service assembly: This electric actuator is mounted on the truck’s camshaft gear. Its function is to advance or slow the timing of when the camshaft opens or closes the vehicle’s exhaust valves.
  • Actuator kit: We also produce and sell complete kits that include everything you need for a do-it-yourself installation in your vehicle.

What Causes a Truck Actuator to Become Defective?

An electric actuator can fail for several reasons:

  • Age: Like most mechanical objects, an actuator’s performance will decline due to wear and tear over time. Frequent vehicle use can accelerate the aging process.
  • Corrosion: Prolonged exposure to water and moisture can cause rusting and eventually lead to mechanical failure. 
  • Electrical problems: Actuators can experience numerous electrical-related issues, such as damaged wiring, faulty switches and bad relays that can create a malfunction.
  • Physical damage: A truck accident or collision could damage an actuator and prevent it from functioning correctly.
  • Inferior quality:  A poorly designed or incorrectly installed actuator could fail prematurely, which is why it’s important to choose a reputable supplier like Custom Truck One Source.

Symptoms of a Faulty Actuator

You can tell that it’s time to purchase an actuator kit if you notice any of the following:

  • Inconsistent operation: If you experience sporadic failures or uneven performance in the vehicle’s electronic control system, it could be an actuator-related issue.
  • Strange noises: Unusual sounds like clicking or buzzing may indicate an electric actuator problem.
  • Visible damage: Signs of damage around an electrically powered door lock can result from a problem with an actuator.
