OBD-II code P1361 top dead center sensor 1 circut intermittent signal
Possible causes 1- TDC1 signal circut is open or shorted to ground.
2- signal circut is shorted to VERF of system power
3- pickup assembly or tis pulse rotor is damaged
4-TDC1 is damaged or has failed
5- PCM has failed
I was told since my car has 60000 miles on it that it may just be the timming belt.
Where is this sensor located? Are there multiple sensors that apply to these problems?
The Sensor thy are talking about is also called the crank position sensor. It is located behind the timing cover at the crank pulley. if you open the timing covers you can check the timing belt at the same time. check the belt for play and missing teeth. if belt is OK replace the sensor. (follow the wire behind the cover to find it.

P1361 Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor A (Top Dead Center (TDC)
- Camshaft position sensor. Replace.
- Signal wire open or shorted to ground.
P1456 Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) Control System Leakage (Fuel Tank System)
- Always fill in the fuel with the engine switched off.
P1361 HONDA - Top Dead Center Sensor 1 Intermittent Interruption Possible causes- Top Dead Center Sensor 1 harness open or shorted - Top Dead Center Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection - Faulty Top Dead Center Sensor 1P0113 HONDA - Intake Air Temperature Sensor Circuit High Voltage
Possible causes- Dirty air filter - Intake air temperature (IAT) sensor harness is open or shorted - Intake air temperature (IAT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection - Faulty intake air temperature sensor
Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P1361 s a "manufacturer-specific" DTC, and for a 2000 Honda Accord, it applies ONLY to the 3.0L V-6 engine (which would have been nice-to-know up front - especially when you are asking for help repairing your engine controls). DTC P1361 is defined by Honda as "TDC1 Sensor Intermittent Interruption".
(Note: TDC = Top Dead Center. PID= Process IDentifier) A diagnostic scan tool capable of watching the TDC sensor PIDs (and preferably, graphing them) is REQUIRED to: (A) determine if this is truly an intermittent condition or a "hard fault". (B) verify PID data while testing for intermittent connections in the wiring harness and connectors. (C) verify that the concern is actually fixed after any repairs are made.
p1361 is intermittent interruption in tdc 1 sensor curcuit Turns out Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor is bad. the sensor is located behind timing chain cover, you have to take cover off to get to it. on 2001 honda civic. take off top timing belt cover, about half way down the cover is the connection for the tdc sensor, check the connector and wiring.
Check out the Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor, connector 124 (gray and on the distributor) check power and grounds. It's missing signal from the TDC sensor in the distributor and causing a misfire.
The codes states that it's an intermittent loss of sensor signal, definitely sounds like wiring. Check for the obvious visual stuff first, corrosion, any cuts or holes in the wiring insulation and then start using a multimeter to check the voltage drop, continuity and resistance for all the connectors and wiring.
I suspect this may be too technical, but you asked about how to fix the problem and this is the answer.
It may be time to take the car to a qualified mechanic.
P1362 = TDC (top dead center) sensor (1) no pulse.
Reset your car's power control module (PCM or ECU) by turning off the key and pulling the clock/backup fuse for 10 seconds then reset. Start the engine and see if the code returns. If not, it was an intermittant fault and the system is okay--but check for dirty or loose wire connector at TDC1/TDC2 sensor. If the code returns, check wiring to the sensor---if the wiring checks out, replace the sensor.
P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from Engine-Light-Help.com)
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.
Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.
