    cant find crank sensor

  • mikenmenchie May 11, 2010

    From reading here on the forum, you might look into some other things - look at the fuel system - filter, pump, etc....

    One solution involved the Throttle Position sensor.

Just because the crank sensor sets a code that does not mean the sensor is defective, it means there is a problem in the crank sensor circuit, that can be the sensor, the sensor connector, the sensor wiring or in some rare cases the PCM (computer)

SOURCE: no power to plugs or coils wont start

You sghould check to verify that fuel is reaching to the rails. There is a possibility that there might be a fuel blockage before the rails

SOURCE: The car cranks but won't start

Ok, check the following below--

1. Check the Ignition control Module for its operational value. it may be damaged.

2. Check the coils.
3. Check the plugs and wires.
4. Check the ECM/PCM/ECU(All represent the same device that is commonly known as the engine control computer)

Check these areas thoroughly for faults. I would also advise to replace the fuel filter and fuel pump as well.

BMW 318i starts fine but once you drive it for 5 minutes switch it off, it wont start again.


sounds like a engine sensor i'd guess at the crank sensor but to be sure you would need to get the OBD codes read , this will give the exact fault so wont waste money trying sensor(s) on a hit an miss basis,you can buy a code reader online not expensive just make sure it covers your vehicle make then you have a valuable diag equipment for future use

There will be a camshaft and crankshaft sensor so be sure you replaced the correct one. The code its giving you is a dead sign of no start and a bad sensor. Make sure its electrical connector is hooked up tight and its seated properly.

2000 v10 ford f350 wont start with out either


If the crank sensor circuit is malfunctioning, then that is your problem. The code does not mean that you must replace your crank sensor. (sometimes it means this, sometimes it does not) The code means that either the crank sensor CIRCUIT is out of range or the crank sensor cannot SYNCRONIZE with the cam sensor. There is a whole lot more to diagnosing a crank sensor circuit than simply replacing the crank sensor. Proper diagnostic procedures need to be followed to locate the exact cause of the problem.

98 jeep cherokee wont start it is not getting fuel changed the fuel pump rotor distributor cap spark plugs coil and it still will not get fuel.


i just had the same problem on a 1997 4.0 . crank sensor is most likely bad you can spray starting fluid in the intake tube and car will start meaning you have spark but injectors will have no power I.E. crank sensor is bad 38.00 dollars at local parts store dealer told me 170.00 dollars make sure you push it all the way in when you install it i just posted a fix for this on this site today . after you start the car if it gives a misfire code and check engine light comes on loosen the crank sensor bolt and push it in again then tighten the bolt the cardboard on the sensor for the air gap wares off a little bit enabling you to push the sensor in a little bit more misfire should be gone there is only a few thousands of an inch adjustment for the air gap and it makes a difference. hope this helps

WONT START WHEN COLD CRANKS FINE. HAS CODE 54 CAM


ok, any obd code means the sensor concerned is not detected by the ecu, or is way out of range of the normal signal the ecu expects. I would therefor check the electrical path between the sensor and the ecu terminals, it may be just a chafed cable or wire.

2001 dodge stratus wont start


SORRY TO SAY BUT WHEN ONE SENSOR GOES BAD 90% OF THE TIME BOTH GO BAD AT THE SAME TIME. YOU WILL ALSO HAVE TO REPLACE CRANK SENSOR .WITCH IS ABOUT 80 BUCKS AT THE LOCAL AUTO STORE SUCH AS ADVANCED AUTO OR AUTO ZONE . BOTH CAM SHAFT SENSOR AND THE CRANK SHAFT SENSOR. THIS SEEMS TO BE A PROBLEM WITH THE DODGE STRATUS. GOOD LUCK. KENNY
