It could be an engine heat sensor or water temp sensor.

P0341 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/Performance

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.

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.

2005 hyndia accent check engine light came on,1 day later car stalled and would not start. code p0340 cam shaft sensor replaced it still wont start gets spark fuel pump turns on any thoughts or suggestions...


Check that the timing has not jumped, incorrect timing will trigger a cam sensor code as the ecu can not work out the correct position of the cam.

I have a diagnostic code 340 and 320 on a 1997 Jeep Cherokee. What might the problem be?


DTC P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • 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

DTC P0320 also have with this wrong.

Car is putting at an idle when gas is pressed runs smoothly


sounds like either you have 2 of the wires crossed.........one is loose....probably #1 or your #1 plug needs regapped or is not tight and losing seal....all will cause a misfire and set the check engine light

Replacing a camshaft position sensor on a 1998 cutlass


The cam sensor is integrated with the crank shaft sensor behind the crank shaft pulley. The 3.1 runs 2 crank sensors. the one behind the crankshaft pulley in integrated to act as a cam sensor. It has 2 sets on rings for that sensor, 1 is in use accustomed for the fuel timing
Good luck and hope this helps friend.

2005 Dodge Stratus ? Camshaft Position Sensor causing problems (I


I had the same problem with my '05 Stratus SXT 2.4 DOHC. I've replaced the cam pos sensor and it seems to be running fine right now. On the Dodge forums a lot of the guys say that you need to replace the crank pos sensor too. I've bought one of those just in case it comes back again. Hope this helps.

Blinking Check Engine light


This is typically a sign of a "detrimental misfire". A blinking check engine light means DON'T DRIVE ME! You may want to have your coil pack checked, plugs replaced or gapped properly, or wires replaced. Would also have to do with the camshaft sensor causing your timing to be off.
