Needing a jump can mean several things.
The cables could be dirty or not tight again, the battery may be loosing power if the car sits, and so on.
Someone would need to check the battery with a meter when it won't crank and find out if the battery is fully charged, and if the starter is getting power.

    The check engine light with the code for the cam sensor has nothing to do with the engine not cranking. As I said, you may have to wait until it does not crank and then have someone check the battery and connections with a meter. You have to test it when the problem happens.

SOURCE: 2003 Galant Clicking noise when trying to start.

It is your battery it may not be completly dead but it is too dead to run the starter. It take 300 -600 amp to run a starter and 20 amp to run a stereo

it might be the a couple of thngs...

1)catalytic converter messed up
2)oxygen sensor before or after the catalytic converter needs to be replaced.
3)belts need tightening
4)your fuel cap has not been well tightened.

go down to a mechanic and have them check your engine light. They most likely will have a computer to check and narrow down what might be the problem.

Cadillac cts 2003 3.2l engine the timing belt jumped time i replaced the set it back on the timing marks an it didn't start i a code po 341 so replaced the camshaft position sensor didn't start


The same thing happened to my 03 CTS. The camshaft position sensor code is often thrown for a variety of reasons. In my case somehow the ECM went when the timing belt jumped (after the serpentine belt broke). It was a bear to diagnose but after installing a rebuilt ECM it runs great. (Don't make the mistake I made: the cylinder head gaskets will fit nicely on either side but if not placed on the correct sides you'll block the single oil port which provides engine oil to the head)

You need to run a continuety test between the PCM and the sensor wire most likely a bad wire or the connection( if the Wire and connection is good its probably a bad pcm)

It is not unusual for a camshaft sensor (or crankshaft position sensor) to fail. They are replaceable. If the onboard computer does not get the correct input it cannot control the engine timing correctly and automatically shuts down.
