    My 2003 (38,XXX miles only) Santa Fe will not start if it is below 0 degrees on a second start. It starts right up first try when totally cold, but after driving and it warming up, then turning off the engine to run 30 minutes of errands, it then will not start. No gas line freeze, new battery, etc. Tech thinks either fuel pressure regulator leak or crank shaft sensor. He also said there is a history of this issue and I can't find any info on the internet!

    I had the same problem last Jan '08' & again the next month in Feb. Here it is one yr. later & the SAME thing happened again. Besides escaping serious accident or death, having the car shut down without warning, driving in full hi-way traffic & this time out in the sticks in sub-sero weather, the total cost this 3rd time, amount upwards of $1,000, labor included. How many times will I escape death in this vehicle because no one seems to know how to repair this thing. Can't get rid of the car due to money problems like the rest of the U.S. Help!

What does acam or crankshaft sensor do


  • The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.
  • The camshaft position sensor identifies position of the camshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown

    There are a few causes that can trip that code.

    - Crankshaft position sensor harness is open or shorted
    - Crankshaft position sensor circuit poor electrical connection
    - Faulty crankshaft position sensor
    - Signal plate may be damage
    - Starter motor may be faulty
    - Starting system circuit
    - Dead or weak battery

    Hello first of all


    well i am sorry a mechanic cant figure this out its really sad. ok so your problem is your either one of two things but most likely the first one i list.

    1. camshaft postion sensor
    2. crankshaft postion sensor

    Now that being said it most likely the camshaft sensor the reason i say that is when a crankshaft postion sensor is bad the car has very hard starts and most of the time no start issues. When a camshaft postion sensor is bad the car cuts off whil driving and can be hard to start up again.

    So that being said they are both pretty cheap parts i would go ahead and replace them both and i would bet my 5 years as ford mechanic that solves your issue.

    The crank postion sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer pully or right beside it here is a picture from autozone.com and description.

    The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM).
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.
  • Designed to meet or exceed OE specifications in form, fit and function.
  • Global coverage for import and/or domestic applications.

    The crankshaft postion sensor is 22.99 and the cam is 19.99 so 50.00 bucks and about hours time should have you up and running.

    PS if this helps please 4 thumbs up it helps me continue to help on here thanks

    Where is the location of crankshaft sensor in VW passat,1995,2,8?


    OPERATION
    The crankshaft position sensor detects gaps in the sensor ring corresponding to TDC of each cylinder. The sensor uses a permanent magnet, core and coil. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. This in turn varies the voltage signal to the ECM. The ECM uses the signals for ignition timing and fuel synchronization.
    TESTING
    Audi A4 2.8L
    1. Disconnect the electrical harness connector.
    2. Switch the DMM to its resistance range and connect it between the CKP sensor connector terminals 1 and 2 , using jumper wires from VW 1594 test kit. The DMM should show approximately 1,000 ohms.
    3. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
    4. If the specified value is obtained, connect the DMM between terminal 1 and 3 (GND), then between terminals 2 and 3 (GND). The DMM should show infinite ohms (open).
    5. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
    6. If the specified value is obtained, check the wiring for continuity or short between crankshaft position sensor and ECM, using a wiring diagram.
    7. Connect a VAG 1598/19 test box to the ECM harness connector.
    8. Check the CKP sensor shielding for continuity by connecting a DMM between terminal 3 and engine ground (GND). The DMM should show a maximum of 1 ohm.
    9. Check the wiring for continuity between the CKP sensor connector terminal 1 and the test box socket A9 , then between the CKP sensor connector terminal 2 and test box socket A10 . There should be a maximum of 1 ohm.
    10. If the specified values are not obtained, check and eliminate any short or open circuits in the wiring.
    11. If the wiring is OK, replace ECM.

    Passat 2.8L
    1. Disconnect the harness connector from the crankshaft position sensor.
    2. Switch the DMM to its ohms range.
    3. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 of CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
    4. Resistance between terminals 1 and 2 must be 500-700 ohms.
    5. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 , then 1 and 3 of the CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
    6. The resistance must be infinite ohms.

    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    1. Disconnect the electrical connector from the sensor.
    2. Remove the crankshaft sensor retaining bolt and remove the sensor.
    3. Replace the O-ring and lightly lubricate it with clean engine oil.
    Installation is reverse of removal.

    ---
    To remove the sensor:

    • Disconnect the wiring harness.
    • Unbolt the sensor mounting bolt.
    If the crankshaft timing sensor or the camshaft reference sensor is removed, follow this procedure when the sensor is replaced:
    • Thoroughly clean the sensor tip and install a new spacer on the sensor tip. New sensors should be supplied with the spacer installed.
    fr_24.15.gif

    Spacer on crankshaft timing sensor and camshaft position sensor.

    • Install the sensor until the spacer lightly touches the sensor ring, and tighten the sensor mounting bolt 105 in.lb.
    ---
    Look for the sensor on the axis of the crankshaft near either end of the engine.

    Good luck on locating this sensor.

    02' Nissan Altima, car jerking, turns off at light, but turns right back on. Engine light on, code from autozone P0335 crankshaft position sensor. P0725 Engine speed signal circuit. The start up, days it...


    If it has a code for loosing the crankshaft position sensor signal, I would certainly start looking at that before venturing into the fuel system. Cam and Crank sensors are a common failure item for Nissans of that era. Nissan actually redesigned the sensor and i think they performed a recall on some vehicles. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe they run about $40 each. Because most people don't have access to a powerful scanner or a digital storage oscilloscope to verify the failure I recommend replacing the cam and crank sensors at the same time.

    Trouble codes p0201 p0203 p0300 p0336


    Start with the replacement of the Crankshaft position sensor to address the P0336.
    The faulty crankshaft position sensor may be causing the P0201 which is a fuel injector failure to injector #1 and the P0203 which is a injector failure to the injector #3. The failure to the injector will cause the P0300 DTC code which is a code for multiple misfire.
    The crankshaft sensor sends signals to the ECM which then would command the injector to pules open and close and the duration of time. If the ECM does not get the right readings, then it's not going to know when to command the injectors to activate.
    Start with the Crankshaft sensor (CKP)and then check the injector wires and injectors it self after the (CKP) has been replaced if problem still persists. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again soon.

    Replaced crankshaft sensor, car still won't start


    A camshaft sensor can cause a no start situation, so can a bad coil, or ignition control modual. You need further testing done.
    A speed sensor does not cause a no start, that I'm aware of.
