P1361 Ignition Control Module

I recently replaced the Crank Pos Sensor in my Buick, it's working fine. However I have an SES light on. Code scanner is showing it to be I.C.M. not toggling. The vehicle is running just fine with no problems. I can't get this code P1361 to clear. What's up with that? Any suggestions?

It NEVER was the camshaft sensor! Unless, you've removed the engine lately, which I doubt.
RUN to Advance Auto Parts and buy a can of "SeaFoam" and add to your gas tank per instructions...drive at least 100 miles and the problem should go away...IF it doesn't you'll have to replace the O2 sensors in the exhaust system...Any good mechanic should be able to do this for much less $$ than the dealership DO NOT go to the dealer for repairs!
Good Luck

The check engine light should be on--rent a scanner, read out the codes, and pursue to repairs. The one sensor you didn't mention is the camshaft sensor. It is a hall effect device and depends on a magnet passing to generate triggers. It is combined with the crankshaft sensor and they work in tandem with the CPU to generate firing. Maybe the magnet came off of the camshaft? If you have access to an oscilloscope, you could look for pulses from both sensors where they go into the ignition module--terminal 'G' for the crank, and terminal 'K' for the cam signal.

run an inline fuel guage in the fuel line with a clear line, look for bubbles, do this witha an inline spark detector, that should tell you wether its fuel or spark shut down, either of these will not give you a code, i have spent many a day on intermittents, sometimes you just have to go back to baasics

take it back to your mechanic and have him check it again, he may have missed something, or it has more wrong with it than he found on that visit.

Po386 code still in computer but ses light is off. why is code still in computer


If the codes are not cleared from the computers memory they will remain indefinitely even though the check engine light is off. The fact the light is off means the problem has been repaired successfully. You can try disconnecting the battery or better yet use a code reader to clear the codes. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

What is involved to fix check engine light codes P1361 and P1362 and how much should I pay a reputable mechanic


The code P1361 and P1362 can relate to a TDC sensor failure, the plug could be dirty or you may need to replace the sensor. Here's a walkthrough:

http://www.civicforums.com/forums/115-engine/323984-diy-tdc-sensor-cmp-sensor-replacement-w-pics.html

P1362 means the PCM isn't getting a signal from the TDC sensor. The TDC sensor is actually the camshaft position sensor.

TDC is also a Crank Position Sensor, Advanced Auto Parts has them for $70, or you can pick it up from your local dealer.

Check engine light comes on upon start up


Yes the shops technician got it right. as per the error code which you mentioned.These 2 codes are usually caused by a faulty crankshaft sensor (P0321) & possibly an ignition module (P1361). When replacing these parts part attention to the female electrical terminals in each connection. They will sometimes "spread" & cause an intermitten open circuit. Check each female electrical terminal with an opposing male terminal. There should be a small amount of "drag" when connecting the two of them. Thanks.Helpmech.
