2002 Suzuki aerio automatic will not start after "dying" on highway after accelating to 100k

We had really bad battery post corrosion so thought that could be the problem so replaced the battery and changed clamp but still will not start. Lights work though. Also get error code on OBD. Check engine light, oil light and battery light all came on. Cam shaft sensor? Amateur mechanic would like to try and fix before paying big bucks. Please help

Remove battery and tray and inspect harness, connectors, gnds,etc. You may have a sulfuric acid issue.

    Well unfortunately the car dying had nothing to do with the battery corrosion. Last night I removed the valve cover and discovered the timing chain is off, and there is a bracket that broke and whatever is attached to it fell down the front. Could this be the oil pump attached to the bracket? Also would this be a non interference engine/head as i am wondering if a valve could have gotten bent when the bracket broke and chain came off.

SOURCE: cam shaft sensor & air conditioner

I replaced the Cam Shaft Sensor. I also cleaned the Throttle Body with carb cleaner. I had my wife hold down the accelerator, while running I sprayed down the throttle plate and the entire area around it. Now my TB finally idles smoothly, and it hasn't died yet!! Check engine light is gone and I passed the emissions test!! Yea!!!

SOURCE: Blinking Check Engine light

This is typically a sign of a "detrimental misfire". A blinking check engine light means DON'T DRIVE ME! You may want to have your coil pack checked, plugs replaced or gapped properly, or wires replaced. Would also have to do with the camshaft sensor causing your timing to be off.

SOURCE: 2004 Chrsyler Pacifica Won't Start

2 possible problem come to mind:

  • Bad ignition switch; faulty switch will occasionally make contact but not every time
  • Bad starter; less likely but possible; a bad starter will function when it's cold but when it heats up, takes much more power to make it work
I hope this helps with your problem and wish you the best of luck. Take care!

SOURCE: error code po340 for a 2002 hyundai elantra

Here is what I could find on your P0340 error code:
CausesA code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

  • a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
  • the camshaft position sensor may have failed
  • the PCM may have failed
  • there exists an open circuit
  • the crankshaft position sensor may have failed
Possible SolutionsWith a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required
Sounds like since you have replaced both the camshaft and crank shaft sensors you need to look at the PCM.  Go down the line of possible solutions and don't replace the PCM unless nothing else works obviously.  I hope this helps but it looks like you are looking at getting a new PCM.  Good luck.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

My starter on my 2002 Suzuki XL 7 died today in my garage. At first I thought it was my battery...battery is fine. I was told it sounds like my starter since there is not juice or sound when I turn the key...

The first thing is to make sure the battery terminals and connectors are clean and free of corrosion so the starter can getr enough power to operate. To find your starter follow the large red wire that goes to the bottom side area of the engine. It will be held on by two bolts.
