SOURCE: 1994 dodge dakota ran rough then died.

1994 Dodge Dakota V6. Intermittant starting problem then finally stopped starting at all. Thought it was the fuel pump as I wasn't getting any pressure on the fuel rail when checked. $180+ later found the fuel pump wasn't getting power. Had already checked the relays and fuses...everything good there. Ignition switch is new, could it be the Engine Control module??

I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.

SOURCE: what do codes p0335 and p0341 mean on 1996 Cavalier?

when your engine went into that 5 second sputter,
your computer or "PCM" did not get a constant signal from the crank or cam sensors that the engine was running.
These two sensors tell the computer what RPM the engine is turning so it can adjust fuel and spark.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Optima no start after timing belt, crank, cam sensor replacement

did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.

I have a 2004 Pontiac grand Prix. It cranks but won't start. I took off the spark plug wires like I watched in a video and saw nothing.I was driving it and the car just cut off and won't start back up


could be a cam/crank sensor problem
could be a broken timing belt/chain not working the sensors
run the fault codes to determine the problem area

I have an 00 mitsubishi eclipse gt and it won't start I was going 45 and it died I put a new fuel pump in and distributor cap and rotor. Found out I have no spark but the timing belt is still in tact.


Crank or cam position sensor more than likely I would say crank position sensor if cam sesor goes out the crank sensor with take over but not other way around

Why is Mazda Miata stumbling and missing after reaching closed loop?


Check compression. After spark and fuel, compression is next on older cars.

I have a 2003 Kia Sorrento it backfires and dies when it gets to normal temperature and this has started after I changed my water pump. I checked my temperature sensor and it is good. What could else could...


Please check the following:
- Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor (MAP) or MAF.
- Fuel injector's connectors and wiring.
- Ignition coil's connectors and wiring.
- Vacuum hoses and pipes.
- PCV Valve.
- Spark plugs for any cracks on the insulators.
- Spark plugs gaps.
- Fuel pump pressure.
- Engine Coolant Temperature sensor.
- Cam position sensor.
- Crankshaft position sensor.
- Valve timing.

My 1991 oldsmobile eighty eight royale keeps dying when i drive it, I have replaced ing control moduel, fuel pump, mass air flow , cam shaft sensor, timing chain, plugs wires ect. do i need to keep...


With that much already invested, why give up now? How about the crank position sensor-was that replaced as well? For spark control and spark timing, the computer needs inputs from both the cam position sensor and the crank position sensor before it can know when to cut power to the coils for spark to occur.
Before proceeding any further, you should check for diagnostic trouble codes. You would need an OBD 1 type code reader or scanner for your olds. Any stored codes may help you find the problem.
You can test the ignition system by checking for spark on a spark plug wire when the engine is cranking over. Pull the plug wire off a spark plug and put in a clean spark plug into the wire. Lay the plug so the threads are touching metal on the engine somewhere. Have someone crank the engine over and watch for a spark from the spark plug. If you have a blue, snapping spark when cranking, ignition is good.
One last note: since it dies when driving, there is a possibility that you have a malfunction in the pcm-the computer.

My 2002 pt cruiser died while I was driving first the oil light came on then it just died! I just had the oil changed 3 days prior to it dying some of the codes I received were 0340 1684 1685...


P0340 is cam position sensor. P1685 is for the key(has a chip in it) P1684 is battery has been disconnected. If the engine will still crank then codes P1684 & P1685 are probably old codes. So if the car will still crank, lets forget about those codes and focus on P0340 A bad cam position sensor will cause the engine to die and not allow it to start back up. Replace the cam position sensor and clear the code and the car should start up.

WHAT IS THE CODE P0341


This P0341 code basically means that the powertrain control module (PCM) detected a problem with the camshaft signal. The camshaft position sensor (CPS) sends a specific signal to the PCM for Top Dead Center on the compression stroke as well as signals indicating the position of the cam sensor. This is accomplished through a reluctor wheel attached to the camshaft that passes by the cam sensor. Any time that the signal to the PCM is inconsistent with what the signal should be, this code is set. NOTE: this code can also be set by extended cranking periods.
FB.init("dd7d9e9681341cde77587bc6a2029f6f"); OBD-Codes.com on Facebook Symptoms The car will likely run with this code set, as it is often intermittent and also because the PCM can often operate the vehicle in "limp-in/limp-home" mode even with a cam sensor signal problem. There may be no noticeable symptoms other than:
  • Poor fuel economy (if engine runs)
  • Possible no start condition
Causes A code P0341 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Cam sensor wiring routed too close to spark plug wiring (causing interference)
  • Poor wiring connection at cam sensor
  • Poor wiring connection at PCM
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged reluctor wheel
Possible Solutions Often relacing the sensor fixes this code, but not necessarily. Therefore it's important to check the following:
  • Check that the wiring isn't routed too close to any secondary ignition components (coil, spark plug wires, etc.)
  • Visually inspect the wiring at the sensor for any burn marks, discoloration indicative of melting or chafing
  • Visually inspect the cam sensor for damage
  • Visually inspect the reluctor wheel through the cam sensor port (if possible) for any missing teeth or any damage
  • If reluctor isn't visible from outside the engine, visual test can only be done by removing cam shaft or intake manifold (depending on engine design)
  • If all checks out okay, then replace the sensor.
