SOURCE: My Dodge Neon will crank, but not start?

If you are asking about the battery light, there is a battery temperature sensor at the front of the battery tray to the right of the battery holddown hardware. If the snow loosened the wires or blocked the airflow to the sensor, the battery light will come on. The battery and alternator voltage can be correct, and the sensor will make the light come on.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 dodge durango, I have a code P0320.

above me is right it's a faulty crankshaft position sensor. Hard to get this out so it may be cheap enough to have them change it at the shop. Only a $32 part

SOURCE: code reads P0340 Camshaft position Sensor circuit

That makes the computor think the timing is off. Replace the sensor and see if that does it. You will then have to have the code cleared (erased) or the light will come back on/stay on.

Where is the crank sensor located on a 2000 navigator? I've been told several different locations and after recent back surgery I don't feel like crawling all around to find it

run the fault codes and that will test the sensor for you. Check the immobiliser for correct operation. fault codes may say that it is a cam position sensor in which case check to see if the cam shaft is turning(broken timing belt)

What prompted you to change the CPS? Was the issue existing before and you tried to solve it with a new CPS? I had a Jeep Grand Cherokee that kept giving me a bad CPS code. I replaced it and the problem didn't go away. Ended up being the computer.

My feul pump works and the engine start but after ruining for 10.min the engine goes off,i don't know the courses of the issue maybe fuel pump failure or sensor .i need help

Sounds like a sensor, maybe a CPS sensor, with engine cold the computer runs off of a preset setting (called closed loop) but when the engine reaches operating temp the computer switches over to an open loop , where it will then take readings from various sensors, the usual culprit is the Crank Shaft Position sensor (TPS) , you can remove it and have it tested, Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts should be able to do this. If the engine light comes on you can hook up a code reader to retrieve any past stored codes and go from there...

Cmp And Ckp are your cam and crank sensors. Basically whats going on is one of those sensors are malfunctioning causing the system to adjust its resources. ie the pcm guesses how fast the cam or crank is turning and adjust timing as nessessary. Pull the crank sensor and inspect for damage. do the same for cam. You may need a book for there locations. Also using a test meter, check there output signals for correct voltage. This should point you in the right direction. Hope it helps.

I got a camshaft position sensor malfunction code P0340 from my code reader and needs to know how to repair the problem for a 2000 Ford Focus SE. My car will not crank.

it sounds like you have bigger problems if your car does not crank(turn over) then your timing belt could have broken and the one piston could be hitting a valve causing it to be locked up.normally when any sensor is bad car engine still cranks it just doesn't start.

1995 Ford Aerostar will crank and start but shuts off

Have you performed the "key on engine off" test? Make sure that you hook up the reader and turn the ignition to the on position but do not start. Next, turn the code reader on. You should then hear the sensors and switches on engine click. If you do not hear the clicking (if you do and still no codes) then there is a connection problem with computer.
