Question about 1994 Buick LeSabre
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!

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.
