I would definately take it back to the dealer and tell them they have not fixed the problem. The Dealer will hook the car up to the ODB II tester to get the codes from your cars computer as to what the computer thinks the problem is. Typically there is more than one oxygen sensor on the exahust system and the dealer ship may have replaced one and need to replace both - or they may have replaced one that was not faulty.

IF the check engine light went out when you left the dealer it is likely because they disconnected the battery when they worked on the car. The computer will then check a problem that shows up several times before lighting the check engine light (typically three cycles I believe - i.e. at least three consecutive starts and stops where the computer sees the same problem) so seeing the light out when it leaves the dealership does not mean they have fixed it, it merely means they have disconnected the battery. You should be well within your rights to go back and tell them they have not solved the problem and your not paying additional money for replacements of parts that didn't fix the problem.

As a check you should also take the car to a local Autozone (Car parts shop) and ask them to check the codes using the ODB II meter. At least then you can go to the dealer with the knowledge of what the computer code is and sound more knowledgable and less likely to be ripped off for poor workmanship.

SOURCE: hello i have problem with

Start with cleaning your camshaft solenoid actuator. The screens are probably clogged or broken. A lot of times this will happen when you haven't changed you oil for extended amounts of time. OR you've switched from a traditional oil to a synthetic blend. The synthetic will clean all the sludge out of there and clog the screens.

Also, since it's a temperature problem, check the tightness of your plastic intake manifold bolts. The easiest to check are #5 and #6 near the fire wall.

After a long drive on vacation in a heavy rain, the check engine, VSC, and Trac Off lights came on and stayed on. Autozone says the codes are P0015 and P0017. any ideas?

Year/make/model??? P0015 is a camshaft position sensor code and P0017 is a crankshaft position sensor code ( generically ). The computer most likely disabled the traction/Vsc as a safety related operation. It is possible the heavy rain may have caused an electrical issue within the wiring/sensors. I would suggest having the codes cleared and continue driving and monitor the engine light to see if these codes return. Ir they do, further diagnostics will be required

Well the code means there is a problem with the cam sensor position for bank 2. The sensor is telling the engine computer the cam is in a different position that it should be.
You would need to check the signal from the sensor, and the actual cam to find the problem.

Cars p0017 engine code

This is a nice truck but when they get old they develop engine problems (misfire codes and performance issues). After 150K miles the head starts to wear out. Oil and coolant changes are very important. Code P0017 refers to a fault detected in the Crank or Cam positioning sensor. This could be true or there could be a fault inside the head. Without test equipment it is hard to advice you. This engine has VVT technology. Since this engine does not use an EGR valve, it is being taken care of through the Phase controller. There is a solenoid on the passenger side of the engine. It is directly above a coolant port, at the front of the engine. This solenoid is called a Phase controller valve (or solenoid). it is common for this part to fail too. I hope this helps but if you need more info please write back. Please be as specific and detailed as you can. The more information that you can communicate to me. The better I can help you. Good luck.

-2006 Chevy Colorado Crew Cab - 4 Cyl. 2wd- I'm looking at trying to get rid of the check engine light that has become a nuisance. It first started when I had to get my emission tested here in Illinois....

P00017 is not a valid OBD2 fault code. I will assume it should be P0017 which is a CKP sensor signal problem, this can be caused by a defective sensor, engine issues or wiring and PCM computer problems. Follow the link for more information the CKP fault code P0017.

Engine Light on and P0017 Code displays on Computer

The cam sensor is out of correlation with the crankshaft. Check both the crankshaft sensor and the camshaft sensor on vehicle. Also check the wiring to each sensor for broken or damage wires. Hope this will help you.
