There are no computers used to check any vehicle.
All you can do is look at what the vehicle computer
thinks it see,correct data or not.
What is the question?
You need a shop to diagnose the codes
and find a problem.
Why do you think the check light is on?
How long before you possibly ruin the motor?

SOURCE: location of the camshaft and crankshaft sensors

cam sensor is on the driver side, front of the motor, just below the valve covers in easy veiw, just outboard of the water temp sensor and they both share the same wiring harness.  The cam sensor is on the passenger side, actually on the transmission bell housing.  It takes the signal from the flywheel next to the ring gear, about an inch from the engine on the transmission bellhousing.  Accesible from the top and easier if you remove the air filter duct.  Or jack up the front passenger side and easier if you come in from the front and its behind the axel, behind the motor, go up the bell housing, just below crank shaft level.  Go with this first , it tells the comp when to send fuel.  If you're getting spark with a 1381 code and you're choosing between CAM & CRANK, start with this, this is the culprit.  Consider getting it from the dealer.  Good luck.  This is Waverunner70, Hope I could help.

SOURCE: I cant find a detailed picture of where the location is to check these items.

The crankshaft position sensor is located on the transmission bell housing on the right side (if you're facing the engine from the transmission side). The camshaft position sensor is towards the top center of the timing cover on the front of the motor. They both have 3 wire connectors that are virtually identical.

Its not unusual for the crankshaft sensor to intermittanly fail. The crank sensors are not real expensive and are not extremely hard to change.
The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) is mounted into the engine block above the starter motor. Engine speed and crankshaft position are provided through the crankshaft position sensor. The sensor generates pulses that are the input sent to the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM interprets the sensor input to determine the crankshaft position. The PCM then uses this position, along with other inputs, to determine injector sequence and ignition timing. The sensor is a Hall effect device combined with an internal magnet. It is also sensitive to steel within a certain distance from it.
Below is a pic of the sensor location.
Good luck.

the computer may need to be reflashed. if it is running then it is not a bad sensor. either of those being bad would cause it not to run.

SOURCE: camshaft timing mark crankshaft timing mark

Belt covers need to be on. Timing mark on crankshaft (while on compression stroke) should line up with TDC mark on cover. then Camshaft mark, needs to line up by looking through access hole of cover, and align mark on cam sprocket with pointer on inside of belt cover.

I have a po340 a po341 an a po016 code on a 2006 dodge caravan want start


Hi !
P0340 = This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit.
P0341 = Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
P0016 = Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation (Bank 1 Sensor A)

The common point of these errors is the camshaft sensor, so I'm afraid you need to visit a service.

I HAVE A 1999 Dodge Caravan, driving along 10mph engine stopped running, would not start after stopped. Replaced crankshaft, camshaft sensor, coil pack, fuel pump, checked fuses, relays, still no start,...


Did your Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light come on? If so, there is an error code (Diagnostic Test Code or DTC) stored in your Caravan's onboard computer. Have the code read and interpreted, and you can google the results to see which system triggered the code. If no light came on, you may want to check your fuel filter, spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor and breaker points/inductive pickup (depending on how the engine is equipped). Other possibilities include carburetor or throttle body injectors malfunctioning. Many possible causes, but the DTC route is easiest to check. Good luck.

My check engine light came on on my 2006 dodge caravan 3.3.i had it hooked to computer said camshaft sensor and crankshaft sensor was not lining up


please read this instruction and fix it. God bless you
When you turn the ignition ON before starting the car, the "Check engine" light is supposed to come on indicating that the engine computer (also could be called ECM, PCM, or ECU) is powered on. If the "Check engine" light does not come with the ignition ON, it's possible that there is no power coming to the engine computer (e.g., due to a broken wire, faulty main relay, burnt fuse, etc.) or that there is a problem with the engine computer itself.

My dodge grand caravan 2000 just stopped. What could be the problem?


If the horn and lights work, and the check engine light is on, you need to rent a scanner, read out any codes,and pursue to repairs. Suspect a defective camshaft or crankshaft sensor if the engine quit suddenly. If it sort of trailed off, the fuel pump may have died. Once the problem is repaired, the scanner is used to erase the trouble code(s) from the car's computer. Hope this helps!

P2097 Error code in 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan, which O2 Sensor?


actually there are 4 sensors. one on each exhaust manifold and then as you said one prior and aft the catalytic convertor. this is saying it is reading too rich a reading. check the condition of your spark plugs. you need to pin point the reason. chances are it is not the o2 sensor. happy holidays

No spark to the spark plugs, replaced the coil pack and oxygen sensor and checked all relays


You may need the computer changed,this is a common chrysler problem.
one from the junk yard will do just fine, make sure the numbers match.
