I am assuming the engine will run. It could be a wiring problem or the cam and crank are not in sync.
I would need to know the actual codes to give more detail.

SOURCE: Position sensors

It's possible that the sensor needs to be rotated. The sensor is keyed so it can only be installed in one position. The camshafts spin once for every two revolutions of the crank, so it's possible that the sensor is 360 degrees out of phase (I've had this happen on timing belt jobs on other cars - with the sensor out of phase, the car would start, and then trail off and die within a few seconds). What you can try is to carefully remove the sensor, turn it over to see the part that mates to the cam, rotate it one full revolution, and then put it back on. Try that out and see if it helps. If it does the trick, great. If not, post back up and we can try to go from there.

The first sensor closest to the exhaust manifold is for the air to fuel ratio. The second one if it has one will be further downstream and checks to see if exhaust is plugged.

Is your car running right especially at idle????

On 1999 and later 2.4L SOHC engines it is located on the left end of the cylinder head (opposite end of the engine from the timing belt)

I doubt it as you have stated that it shows a calibration fault . This will be from the variable valve timing assembly on the cam shaft/s that is altering the valve timing. The timing chain may be faulty but you should be hearing it to be that bad.

still could have a fault in crank sensor wiring ,,, you need to plug in diagnostic tool when it wont start and see if you have a engine revs reading ,,, also check if fuel is getting to the engine ,,,, that car also has immobiliser so try spare key to see if problem goes away ,,,,,, wont get codes on that age group unless problem happens when driveing

My. car v6a12 engine galant. engine crank but wont start


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Have you ever replaced the timing belt?? If not the problem is likely to be a loose worn out timing belt. A floppy belt will play havoc with the sensor signals and trigger a check engine light and a camshaft sensor code.
