Question about 2006 Mazda 6 s
I have a 2006 Mazda 6s. I had the motor done. When I got the car back, the check engine light was on with code po340, the "tcs off" light and the traction light is on. Also the tach does not work. When I step on the gas, the TCS OFF light and the traction light go off and the tach works for a second. The guy who did the engine said " I dont know" its driving me insane. Help!!
Code 340 is for a problem with the cam position sensor. That would affect the tach and cause the check engine light to be on.
And most all the time the check engine light is on the other warning lights will be also. The Traction control system uses the engine and the ABS system to function. So if there is a problem with the engine, the TCS will be disabled.
The cam sensor and circuits would need to be tested. It could be a wiring problem.

Testimonial: "Ok replaced both cam position sensors. I still get the code. It was not doing this before the guy rebuilt the engine. WHen I got the car back, I checked the codes and replaced the cam position sensors yesterday. Rpm gauge only works for a second when I rev it up, and at that point the "tcs off" light and the traction light ( light with the squiggly lines) goes off for a second too... Where do I start hunting for a wire problem?"
