Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze
We have changed the crankshaft positioning sensor and I have looked on Alldata and it says to do the following...... 1) Connect the DRB scan tool to the data link (diagnostic) connector. This connector is located in the passenger side compartment, at the lower edge of the instrument panel; near the steering column. 2) Turn the ignition switch on amd access the " miscellaneous' screen (or appropirate screen on generic scan tool). 3) Select"re-learn cam/crank" option and follow directions on the DRB screen. The problem is the scan tool I have does not have that so how do I do all that without the scan tool or do I need the tool in order to do that. Someone please help I am in desperate need of some real help. Thanks.

I guess my problem was the new crank sensor has failed.
Replace crank sensor again , it has fixed the problem.
Not too sure if this was any help or not.

Thank you for choosing fixya.com.
There should be a crank shaft sensor, cam shaft sensor. These should be located on the passenger side of the engine; the camshaft sensor is on the right bottom side of the water pump; the crankshaft sensor should be down and front of the camshaft sensor. Refer to service manual for exact locations, as vehicles may vary.
These two parts will affect the car not starting, however, it should not affect spark.
If you have replaced the distributor, have you replace the cap and rotor? If not, do so. Also, replace the plugs, wires, and if you still get no fire, you're coil is probably bad (I had to replace this on my van recently) Follow the coil wire (middle wire on the distributor cap) to the coil (actual part name is different, but slips my memory at this time) however, it's the same as a coil, they just gave it a new name. I have a manual for this van, as well as the 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan (same vans really), minor differences.
If this part replacement does not fix the problem, you may have a bad connection at the battery, on the positive, negative, and check the ground connection on the block/chassi (whichever it is bolted to); clean and reattach.
Check ALL fuses and relays in the vehicle. NOTE: DO NOT remove any relays or fuses while battery is connected. Disconnect battery, then procede to check fuses and relays (relays can be tested with a fuse tester. (found this little trick by accident one time (shere curiosity) - Relays have several prongs on them, and knowing which ones are live are tricky - so, simply adjust the tester prongs to the width needed, and touch two prongs at a time until you see the light on the tester light up. If the light does not come on (with a secure connection), then the relay is bad (just as the fuses would be) Also, when one is testing fuses, don't let the appearance of a fuse fool you - a fuse may look good to the naked eye, however, there is a spot on the fuse that you will never see, and sometimes this is the faulty area. If you are not sure, test the fuse - even if the light comes on, on the tester, the fuse may be weak; therefore, though it may be a tedious task to some, replacing all the fuses, allowing you to know that all are good, is the best way to go. Relays aren't necessarily as easy to do this with, since you can't see any part of them; and they tend to be a little spendy (depending on what the relay is for). They're not "expensive", however, they do cost more than a simple fuse, but necessary for it's intensions, so be sure to replace if necessary.
I hope this information helps you get your vehicle running. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Yes, I had this on my 97 Stratus....could be a couple of things....one, the there may be damage to the wire connector harness going to that sensor. That was the problem with mine. I replaced the cam sensor, crank sensor, coil pack, mas sensor..etc...it ended up being a burnt spot on the wire harness. They said this is a common problem for the stratus/breeze/cirrus/intrepid.....the most it could be is a bad ECM....there is a bad pin on it located half way down the side where the big connector is. It is the silver block with the big wire harness going to it in the engine compartment. Try wiggling that around...the harness area.

Testimonial: "thnk u for the quick response, this is very help ful. it gives me confidence in what i thought "
Tips for a great answer:
Engine control module (ECM) replacement
Crankshaft damper replacement
CKP sensor replacement
Any engine repairs which disturb the crankshaft to CKP sensor relationship
Important: The scan tool monitors certain component signals to determine if all the conditions are met to continue with the CKP system variation learn procedure. The scan tool only displays the condition that inhibits the procedure. The scan tool monitors the following components:
CKP sensor activity--If there is a CKP sensor condition, refer to the applicable DTC that set.
Camshaft position (CMP) signal activity--If there is a CMP signal condition, refer to the applicable DTC that set.
Engine coolant temperature (ECT)--If the engine coolant temperature is not warm enough, idle the engine until the engine coolant temperature reaches the correct temperature.
