Hi there, have you checked for spark and fuel? if you haven't you may want to start there. check to see if your fuel pump is working. turn the key on and you should hear the fuel pump prime itself for about 2-3 seconds. if it primes you'll want to check if you are getting fuel to the injectors. On the fuel rail that the injectors are connected to, you should find a shrader valve. take the cap off and carefully press the valve. careful with this procedure cause the fuel will be pressurized. if You have fuel, check for spark by removing a plug wire and put it near a ground. you should have spark while cranking. Hope this helps you . Let me know if you need more info.

    Hi there... If you've replaced the cam and crank sensor along with the coil, and your still not getting spark, you may have to start tracing wires and getting voltage readings. Before you go to far into it, have you checked the power distribution center under the hood?

    This is a fuse block that has an ignition fuse along with other fuses and relays.

My 2000 Dodge Caravan won't start


Are you saying the engine will not crank, or crank but will not start ?
None of the engine sensors come into play until after the engine is cranking.
Cranking problems can include the neutral safety switch and other factors with the crank circuit back to the key switch.

96 jeep laredo stopped running gages quit and won't start even after replacing crank shaft sensor but it turns over like it wants to start


Crank sensor wont have any effect on starting, Cam position sensor would. Also check all your fuses.

My 2000 honda civic wont turn over and has no spark but the ignition coil and modual are both fine


Won't turn over? Do you mean the starter won't crank the engine over?

Or the engine cranks over and won't start, and you have tested for spark when cranking and have no spark? And then you have tested the coil and ignition module, and they tested out good? Am I on the right page here? If so, maybe the next thing to check would be the crank position sensor. The ecu (computer) signals the ignitor (ignition module) when to initiate spark after it digests the signals from the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor.

Engine cut out while driving, won't start.


Lets start at the beginning.
If you have a V6 engine you have two cam sensors. And the problem could be the cam sensor(s) is not in sync with the crank sensor due to a problem with the sensor or the timing belt.
Code 340 is for bank one sensor one. You could have as many as 4 sensors depending on which engine you have.
The mass airflow meter code could keep the engine from starting.
The cruise control problem could be related to the cam-crank sensor issue or something else.
You should only have one crank sensor and it is usually near the crank pulley in the front of the engine.

It cranks but it won't start. I got a new battery, cam position senor and crank position sensor. took out the ignition control was told that was still good.


Check for spark at the plug wires to spark plugs, no spark on anything, then suspect a fouled job replacing the cam position sensor.

Car wont start


being 94' im sure it has high miles, cam and crank sensor common to fail over time do to wear and heat exposure. check the basic, make sure you getting fuel and sparks. fuel pump only work as long the engine is turning over due to the crank sensor sense the flywheel turning. crank sensor may be faulty. no sparks, check coil make sure is good and putting out 12v, auto zone can test it for free. good coil, than check cam sensor, cam sensor senses the cam turning and tell the ecu to tell the coil to disperse the sparks to the plugs. cam and crank sensors, there no way of testing it but replacing the unit unless you have the special equipment to test it; both is fairly cheap to replace, check ebay.
