    HI, i couldn't respond to your question on the premium window so, i will respond in this manner. the car will run with the accessories on because the accessories are pulling a strong current threw the wires. once the current is shut down by switching the accessories off, this will provide a clear path for the cpu to notice the malfuctioning circuit. once the crank sensor is noticed, the ecm will adjust to the abnormal signals that are basically signaling that there is an artificail knock. this will make the ecm adjust timing and injectoer actions cuasing missing and stalls.

I am responding this way because all the experts get locked out if someone pulls the trigger on answering your question before they do.

You have a number of codes; alternator field, secondary air pump, cam and crank sensor signal lost. All of these must be coming and going intermittently because you say the car runs great sometimes. This really leads me to believe that you have a loose or bad ground somewhere. Go through the engine compartment thoroughly to make sure everywhere you see a ground screwed to the sheet metal or the block is tight and clean. Make sure the battery terminals and any accessory wiring to the battery is clean and tight. Carefully inspect the harnesses to make sure nothing has rubbed or burned through any of it. Next, look under the dash for the same things, loose wiring or grounds. Have a look at the PCM, remove the connector and apply some contact cleaner to the connections. If none of this solves your problem, I suspect you may have a bad PCM.

Hey Terry,
You're camshaft positioning sensor wil be located on the end of your valve cover on the oposite end of the pulleys and gears. Look for plugs around that area that are right on the cylinder head underneath the valve cover. If you have any issues I can look further into it and take a picture if need be.

Position of crank sensor

Do you mean the "location" of the crankshaft position sensor? If so, it is located on the right rear of the engine/transmission housing area.

Where is the crankshaft sensor located?

You will find the crank sensor on the right side (passenger) just on the back side of the seam between the engine and the transmission where the flex plate that connects them is located. It is just above the surface of the differential housing. It has a connector that you would separate by lifting gently on the tab. Then unbolt the old sensor and pull it up out of the housing.

I hope this helps, thanks for useing FixYa.

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.
