2005 nissan pathfinder camshaft position sensor symptoms

I replaced the #2 camshaft position sensor to remove the check engine light. I started the car without any problems and drove it for approximately 20 miles. Once I restarted the car the check engine light came on again. The diagnostic tool told me once again I have to change the same sensor. I have replaced this sensor twice and still experienced the same problem. Do you know if there is something I am missing? I have read in some forums of people changing all camshaft crankshaft sensors and would greatly appreciate some advice before doing so.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S, Check Engine Light Problem.

this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.

difficult to diagnose withoutcar in front of me,best advice is what i said to another woman with a merc--get dolled up to nines and go to a local repair shop and start crying ,always works unless your unlucky enough to get a *** mechanic,and after 40yrs in trade their are not many *** mechanics that i have worked with,weird ones yes but ***?? Or take vehicle to nissan agent as the mechanics their will have product knowledge of the make and should be able to diagnose it in seconds.This is favourite of mine and that is if a particular model is playing up i will try to get into workshop to ask mechanics ,failing which i wait in local cafe at breakfast time and try to collar one their.

In the kit there are two sensor that look identical. The one for the crankshaft has a white paint mark on it near the bolt hole. Make sure that it is in the right location.

05 nissan maxima no start replaced camshaft sensor bank 1&2 still gives PO345 code fuel pump works but still no start


You need to have a live data scanner hooked up to verify the powertrain control module (PCM) is actually receiving the signals from the CMP sensors you replaced, there is no more guessing here and no quick answers, it is a possibility the wiring harness and connectors to the sensors is defective, the wiring should always be replaced whenever the sensors are replaced on this engine ALWAYS, as they are frequently the problem and not the sensors themselves. But due to the difficulty of replacing the CMP's they both are replaced as a unit repair. Also it may be helpful for you to read the info at the link below.

I have a nissan murano 2005 with the code p1701 and a p0340 how can i use them to repair these codes


Nissan Murano P0340 2005 Nissan Murano - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit
Possible causes- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor-
Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection- Faulty starter motor- Starting system circuit-
Dead (Weak) battery
P1701- Fuel trim

I would suggest replacing the camshaft position sensor. When the sensor fails it can cause changes in fuel system that the computer can detect. So I suspect once the camshaft sensor ivreplaced that the P1701 code will be gone.

Camshaft position sensor


Are you saying the engine will not start, or not crank ?
The cam sensor does not come into play until the engine is cranking.

Hi,

On 2 wire Sensor engines, the distributor stator or Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor is a single Hall effect magnetic switch. This is activated by a single vane, and is driven by the camshaft.

On Three Wire Sensor engines, the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor is a variable reluctance sensor, which is triggered by the high-point mark on one of the camshaft sprockets.

The Distributor engine does not use a separate CMP sensor. It utilizes a conventional distributor, equipped with a Hall effect device, for this function.

The following symptoms can be caused by intermittent wiring connections or faulty signal to the EMS.
