Trying to remove pick up module


There is a cam sensor located under the distributor cap. Is that what you are trying to replace? If so remove the cap. Remove the rotor. Rotate the crankshaft with a socket and ratchet via the crank pulley until the square notch in the exciter ring lines up with the cam sensor. Remove the two cam sensor screws and remove the sensor.

1999 nissanpathfinder where is the ignition module and coil located


coil is located inside of the distributor assembly. so is the crank sensor. did you have the timing belt replaced?? the distributor is driven by l/h side cam shaft, but if the timing belt breaks, the cam will not spin and you will not have any spark, because the distributor is not spinning. remove the distributor cap and crank engine and observe if the rotor is spinning. it should be. start there.

Where is locate the camshaft position sensor on 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo limited 4.7 l


The camshaft position sensor is located inside the distributor. It is a hall effect swich, simply remove the distributor cap and the rotor and you can lift it out, unplug and replace.
Have fun but beware a bad crankshaft position sensor can cause a false cam sensor code to be set sometimes.
Good luck.

Im needing to know where that camshaft sensor is located on a 96 jeep cherokee.


If you have a distributor with a cap and ignition wires on it, you don't have a "formal" cam sensor. Later models do. However you do have a pickup coil under the distributor breaker plate that pretty much serves the same purpose. The cam sensor on later models replaces the distributor ...on 4.0 engines it is right in front of the oil filter where the distributor was.

Cam sensor replacement


It's inside the distributor. You need to remove the distributor, disassemble the distributor, to replace the sensor.
