Question about 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

I replaced the camshaft position sensor P0340, now the OBD is reading a PO0016

I just replaced the camshaft sensor, now the OBD is reading PO016 crankshaft sensor. Is this normal? Is this a result of waiting too long to replace the camshaft sensor?

Causes that bring up code P0016 may include:

  • Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
  • Misalignment of timing belt/chain
  • Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
  • Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
  • Bad crank sensor
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
  • Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
  1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
  2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
  3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck.
Hope this helps

Rough running / misfiring Loss of engine power Causes
A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken the camshaft position sensor may have failed the PCM may have failed
there exists an open circuit
the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

Possible Solutions With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code,
diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try: Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit Check for continuity in the circuit wiring Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor Replace the camshaft position sensor as required Check the crankshaft position circuit as well Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required Diagnose/replace the PCM as required

I have a po340 a po341 an a po016 code on a 2006 dodge caravan want start


Hi !
P0340 = This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit.
P0341 = Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
P0016 = Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation (Bank 1 Sensor A)

The common point of these errors is the camshaft sensor, so I'm afraid you need to visit a service.

I keep getting a code P0340.Chrysler has reprogrammed the PCM for a long start issue.I cant seem to get anywhere with it.


P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.
