Question about Cars & Trucks
Belt light comes on every 100 miles atv only runs about five miles an hour.just had a new belt put on last year. need to know how to re-set the belt safty switch
You might get better info in the sports section of Fixya or some other more appropriate catagory. You are listed under Cars and Trucks.
I would think the sensor would be touching the tensioner pulley or be on a roller pulley. The sensor probably detects the deflection in the belt and as the belt stretches it trips the sensor to tell you it is time to change belts. You may have a weak spring in the tensioner pulley or the tensioner may be frozen so that the belt may still be good; the tensioner my be bad.

With these computers, anytime your check engine light comes on and than you replace the part, the computer has to be reset with handheld scanner/computer.
So even with a new part, the computer still has to be electronically reset.
Even if there are no codes. You won't have codes because the part is new, but the engine light will remain on until it is reset.
If you have all new parts, no codes, and had the system reset. It could be a problem with the computer itself and will have to be put on a diagnostic computer for further testing.

You have a high touge engine so the recomendations are generally for cars that are driven weekly at least. I would change these within ten years apart for they do age from heat

I have a 2004 dodge stratus 2.4 dual overhead cam. When driving down the road, bell goes off, check engine light comes on, and it's like I'm driving on limp mode, when going over 2000 rpm's, there's a severe stutter. After getting code for light it points to cam shaft sensor, which i changed. I also changed crank shaft sensor. After all of this was done, drove great for about 30 miles and the same thing happened all over again. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.
