I would think it would be just the Camshaft Position Sensor.I looked up the codes and they say pretty much the samething.

SOURCE: most common cause for code P0340 of 95 Ranger

Hi, the cam shaft sensor will be located Under the hood, center, upper engine area, mounted behind rear of intake manifold, in the engine block.

This is a magnetic or hall effect sensor. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration. This information determines when the fuel/air mixture needs to be ignited and how much mixture is needed for the engine.

The possible causes of failure will be faulty housing or faulty wires as well. A faulty ECM could trigger a false alarm as well. this is highly unlikely but, possible in most cases. The most reported reasons is flat out sensor failure.

Pull up your codes to see what the are for and then you can begain to diagnose. here is a link to the codes. The 1122 is a TPS problem and the 1222 is a traction control issue. More then likely there is some sort of issue with the TPS causing your performance by the ECU not being able to detect the position of the pedal. Save this link for future trouble codes

Buy the sensor from the car dealership. The sensors at auto stores are inferior and sometimes do not work properly.

P0340 Problem Code for 03 Jeep Liberty

code p0340 refers to cam shaft position sensora bank 1-circuit malfunction===causes --wiring Cam sensor---ECM. The only connection is the ECM to both units so they may have unpluged the ECM to service the air bag problem. IT could be as simple as using a code reader to reset the CPU. I may also be a coincedence and there may be a fault in the cam position sensor.. I would discuss the matter with the dealer service department to determine what is what.

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.

Bmw z3 2.5i CODE p0340

The code is for the cam position sensor for the intake cam shaft.
You can clear the code and it may not come back. If it keeps coming back you might want to replace the sensor and double check the connections where it plugs in to the harness. Hopefully this will fix the problem.
Let us know if this helps, Robert

DTC (diagnostic trouble code) P0340 is indicating a fault has occured in the camshaft position sensor system of the cars' electronic engine control system. DTC P0717 is for a transmission input turbine shaft speed. Typically these codes are unrelated. Both the sensors are variable reluctance devices. They have no moving parts and as such are robust and not usually prone to failure. But they can and do fail. Are either codes "hard" faults or are they in the continous memory of the computer? Does the P0340 clear itself when the engine is shut off and restarted? Can you cause the P0340 to reoccure just by starting the engine and with out driving it and revving the engine to 1500 to 2000 rpm for 1 to 2 minutes while in Park? The P0717, when cleared should only reoccure when the car is driven. If the camshaft position sensor has been replaced and still the same code occures make sure you have the correct information as to the meaning of this code in regards to your particular model year and engine. Does the engine have a camshaft position sensor for each camshaft? If so what is the DTC code for the other camshaft position sensor. Yes, the engine's computer (ICM, PCM, ECM, all terms for same thing) could be faulty but in most cases this is not the problem. Does the transmission seem to shift properly? You probably won't notice a differnece in the way the engine runs if the camshaft position fails due to the default stratagy used in the ICM. Wiring would be my next area of concern. Does the wiring for the camshaft position sensor and the transmission sensor go through the same wiring harness and could you have a poor connection at some point in that harness? Inspect the wiring and the hardshell connectors throughout the harness. Let me know what you find out. Thanks
