Question about 2003 Jeep Liberty
We took our 03 Liberty in for the recall service on the airbag on Thursday. The dealership fixed it at no charge and we were on our way. A few days later, Monday, the oil light came on, the car immediately stalled and the entire dash board lit up. We had it towed to our house and looked up the problem code and P0340 came up. It starts up sporadically, but the engine won't stay on for long. Is it possible the dealership messed something up electrical that could have caused this when they fixed the air bag issue? The air bag recall issue was electrical too.
Code p0340 refers to cam shaft position sensora bank 1-circuit malfunction===causes --wiring Cam sensor---ECM. The only connection is the ECM to both units so they may have unpluged the ECM to service the air bag problem. IT could be as simple as using a code reader to reset the CPU. I may also be a coincedence and there may be a fault in the cam position sensor.. I would discuss the matter with the dealer service department to determine what is what.

The system needs to be checked for cades. Airbag codes are pulled out
of the ECU with the use of a scanner tool. A good auto mechanic shop
will have this or you can go to the dealer. YOU SHOULD NOT TRY TO
REPAIR THIS YOURSELF,YOU COULD ACTIVATE THE AIRBAG!!!!!

SOURCE: P0340 code
This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM.
A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

It probably will cost a few bucks to get the code reset, but you don't need to go to the dealership, most shops with a good scanner equipped for air bag code reading will be able to diagnose and reset the light. The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed... But, just for fun, before doing all this, i'd disconnect the battery for 30 minutes to an hour and reconnect it back, some systems do effectively reset themselves this way.

You need to take the jeep to a dealer or a good mechanic who can retreive the codes out of the computer. You may have a module problem but I will not guess without knowing the codes.
