SOURCE: I keep getting a code

P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
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. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.

Symptoms can include:
Hard starting or no start
Rough running / misfiring
Loss of engine power

Causes: A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
the camshaft position sensor may have failed
the PCM may have failed
there exists an open circuit
the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

Possible Solutions: With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
Diagnose/replace the PCM as required

Hope helps.

I have put a new pcm and new crank sensor on my 1997 Ford f 150 with a 4.6 liter and it still has no fire what else could it be

Does the model of the pcm you put in match the one for your Vin number, if not and you just put it in you will need to get it reprogrammed. What caused you to change the pcm?

How to reprogram pcm concorde 2000 by my self

The PCM is VIN specific so unless you have a Chrysler Star Scan tool and the VIN codes, there is no way for you to do this. Take it to a dealer.

Code p0601 on 2001 grand caravan

A doozy! And common to Chrysler Dodge products. The code means the computer detected an internal fault in the PCM. There have been many reported failures of the Program Control Module in Chrysler products.
However, if you took off the connector to the PCM while battery was connected, you may have set the code yourself.
It's pretty much a dealer fix: In most cases, the fix is to replace and reprogram the PCM. In a few instances, the dealer may be able to reflash the PCM and get it working again, but usually it needs replacing and reprogramming. It's probably not, but ask if it's still under emissions warranty.
If you use an independent shop to replace the PCM, make sure they can also program it. Good luck.

Code P0601 car idle and run ruff , it is 2000 sebring JXI with146,000 miles on it

Hi, basically that means that there is an interal fault in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). There have been many reported PCM failures on Chrysler/Dodge products although it is possible for this to happen on any vehicle. In Dodge/Chrysler products, a P0601 trouble code means that a serial communication failed inside the computer at least 6 times. In most cases means the PCM has gone bad. This is possibly due to a short-circuit inside the PCM. Or, if you disconnect the wires/connector from the PCM while the battery is still connected, that may also cause this code. The most common fix is to replace and reprogram the PCM. In a few cases the dealer may be able to reflash the PCM and get it working. But more than likely the PCM will need to be replaced and reprogrammed (we recommend you take it to a dealership for this). The good news is it *may* be covered under your emmissions warranty. So even if you're out of bumper-to-bumper warranty or powertrain warranty, check your warranty guide or dealer to see if this is covered.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan I just put a master computer on. Is there a way that I can reset it? The engine runs fine so I know it works but it wont shift properly.

Hope you put a PCM in. TCM is in side the PCM. The TCM sometimes needs a brake in period. 200 miles. If not call the dealer to have then flash the PCM with the updates. Around $80 at the dealer. Tell them you want to FLASH to PCM for bump shifting. Any Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge dealer can do this in 1 hour. Thers a Chrysler TSB #2101807 Dated 10-27-07 about Transmission Reprogramming. If the dealer put the PCM take it back tell them about the TSB
