Code p0340 refers to camshaft position(CMP) sensor A bank 1---circuit malfunction===causes wiring---CMP sensor--ECM

code p0344efers to CMP sensor A bank 1--circuit intermittent===causes --wiring --poor connections ---CMP sensor---ECM
Check the wiring and connections and if ok then replace the sensor. Check air gap to the rotor and check that there is no dirt or anything else that can affect the air gap

SOURCE: 2003 stratus cam sensor replaced still unresolved

you bypassed the wires that connect to the sensors? that would have been my first guess the harness that plugs into the sensor. after that i would check the ground connection from the ecm. wouldn't hurt to check the battery posts too. if the battery posts are oxidized you can have all kinds of goofy electrical problems. hope that helps.

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.

SOURCE: Code: P0340 Cam shaft position

Check your PCM GROUND, And Also Disconnect and Inspect ALL ENGINE Harness Connectors, FORD Has Had Many Problems Over RECENT Rears With FAULSE CODES Due to Poor GROUNDS @ ENGING/BODY/COMPONENT/ GROUND Locations, And ALSO HARNESS CONNECTORS with Poor Connections, It May Not SEEM REAL , But I Have Ran into this COUNTLESS Times.

06 bmw 525i codes p0174, p0171, p1338, p0340, p0365, and p1315


codes p 0171 and 174 refer ti system too lean
codes p 0338,340,365 refers to crank. and can shaft position sensors
code p1338 again is camshaft position sensor
code p1315 again is camshaft position sensor
too lean can be from fuel pump pressure too low
and position sensors can be wiring , connections sensors.
Involved in all these , one of the possible causes is the ECM
IF it is possible get a serviceable replacement ECM unit and substitute it first as there is no point in replacing all the rest if the ECM is faulty
could be water in the connections , corrosion etc
it is always suspect when so many different codes suddenly appear at the same time

P0340 - Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit Malfunction ,did you check the wiring ?
P0340 - Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit Malfunction The test fails when the PCM can no longer detect the signal from the CMP sensor.
  • CMP circuit open
  • CMP circuit short to GND
  • CMP circuit short to PWR
  • SIG RTN open (VR sensor)
  • CMP GND open (Hall effect sensor)
  • CMP misinstalled (Hall effect sensor)
  • Damaged CMP sensor shielding
  • Damaged CMP sensor
  • Damaged PCM
Harness routing, harness alterations, improper shielding, or electrical interference from other improperly functioning systems may have intermittent impact on the CMP signal. DR1 DTC P0340: CHECK IF ENGINE WILL START
    Note: Refer to the Pinpoint Test Schematic to determine the type of CMP sensor.
  • Start engine.
Will the engine start? Yes No GO to DR2 . DTC P0340 is not the cause of the No Start. GO to Section 3 to diagnose the No Start symptom. Is the PCM firing the injectors ?
  • Starting Concerns:
    • No Start, Normal Crank
Note: Extended cranking because of a no start can load the exhaust system with raw fuel, damaging the catalytic converter after the engine starts. For applications with Secondary Air Injection (AIR) Systems, perform the following after the no start has been repaired: Disconnect the electric secondary air injection (AIR) solid state relay, run the engine until the surplus fuel is used up, and reconnect the relay (disconnecting the relay may set a Continuous Memory PCM DTC that will need to be cleared).


SYSTEM/COMPONENT REFERENCE (Section 5 Pinpoint Test unless noted)
  • Add-on Anti-Theft Devices
  • Visual, check with customer.
  • Fuel/Ignition
  • For LS6/LS8:
  • GO to KB85 .
  • All others:
  • GO to A1 .
  • If engine is now a no start:
  • If engine will start and run normally at part throttle, check Idle Air Control (IAC) System.
  • Engine will now start and run normally at part throttle:
  • GO to KE2
  • Exhaust System (restrictions)
  • GO to HF1
  • Base Engine
  • Engine System - General Information Section 303-00 of the Workshop Manual.
  • Additional Testing
  • GO to Z1

P0340 already replaced CMP


When you start the car does it turn on right away or does it turn over slowly, gets faster and then finally fires up? That's a sign for low fuel pressure. If it turns over normally and always fine I would suspect that your fuel system is okay. Also low fuel pressure would be caused by a faulty fuel pump. If the car is leaking oil, you should get that fixed asap, it should be on top of your list. You can fix the sensor after you fixed your engine. Because leaking engines can kill themselves pretty fast, which would be more trouble to fix than faulty sensors.

What's this ? gaugesax out
P0123 - Throttle Position (TP) Circuit High Input The TP sensor circuit is monitored by the PCM for a high TP rotation angle (or voltage) input through the comprehensive component monitor (CCM). If during key ON engine OFF or key ON engine running the TP rotation angle (or voltage) changes above maximum calibrated limit, the test fails.
  • TP sensor not seated properly
  • TP circuit short to PWR
  • TP circuit short to ETCREF
  • SIG RTN circuit open to TP sensor
  • Damaged TP sensor
  • Damaged PCM
A TP PID (TP V PID) reading greater than 93% (4.65 volts) in key ON engine OFF, continuous memory or key ON engine running indicates a hard fault. P0123 - ETC Throttle Position (TP1) sensor Circuit High Input The ETC TP sensor 1 was flagged as fault status by the PCM indicating high voltage.
  • ETC TP1 sensor harness shorted to VREF
  • ETC TP1 sensor harness shorted to PWR
  • Damaged TP1 sensor
  • VREF circuit shorted to TP1 sensor
Drive vehicle, bring to a stop, turn key OFF. Start vehicle, run key ON engine running self-test at idle. Access KOER diagnostic trouble codes on scan tool.
P0193 - Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor Circuit High Input (FRP) The comprehensive component monitor (CCM) monitors the FRP sensor circuit to the PCM for high voltage. If voltage were to fall below a calibrated limit and a calibrated amount of time during testing, the test will fail.
  • FRP signal shorted to VREF or VPWR.
  • FRP signal open (gasoline only)
  • Low fuel pressure (NG only)
  • Damaged FRP sensor.
  • Damaged PCM.
  • High fuel pressure (caused by damaged fuel pressure regulator) NG.
A FRP PID value during KOER or KOEO less than 0.3 volts for gasoline or 0.5 volts for natural gas vehicles (NG) would indicate a hard fault. P0340 - Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1) The test fails when the PCM can no longer detect the signal from the CMP sensor on Bank 1.
  • CMP circuit open
  • CMP circuit short to GND

I was driving and car stopped I was low on oil and had been running the car on low fuel a lot car won't start I got codes p0340 p0113 p0123 I replaced starter and p0340 what could be the problem?


PO340 is the camshaft sensor, circuit malfunction

PO113 is intake air circuit--high input

PO123 is TPS sensor circuit A high input

Running your car low on oil is never good, how low was it---did it start knocking or did it overheat?
Running on low fuel is never good either, did you run out of gas and burn the fuel pump up?
Why did you replace the starter? Will the engine turn over and try to start? If your engine will crank over, check for spark at the plugs and check to see if you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail...This would be the best place to start troubleshooting.

code p 16 refers to crankshaft position/cam shaft position bank 1 sensor A--correlation====causes ---wiring---CKP sensor ( crankshaft position sensor )---mechanical fault

code p 0340 refers to -camshaft (CMP) sensor A bank 1 circuit malfunction ===causes wiring--CMP sensor--ECM
cosrs nothing to check the timing belt , just remove the oil filler cap and see if the rockers are moving when turning it over
the clue here may be bewteen the 2 codes , the word correlation and circuit malfunction so check the wiring, harness connections for pin corrosion and then substitute the ECM with a know good unit as the correlarion and circuit malfunction could be in the ECM
if the ECM program is not getting good reports for both sensors then it reasons that the piston and cam shaft are not timed properly and so will not allow it to start

Most common cause for code P0340 of 95 Ranger


Hi, the cam shaft sensor will be located Under the hood, center, upper engine area, mounted behind rear of intake manifold, in the engine block.


This is a magnetic or hall effect sensor. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration. This information determines when the fuel/air mixture needs to be ignited and how much mixture is needed for the engine.

The possible causes of failure will be faulty housing or faulty wires as well. A faulty ECM could trigger a false alarm as well. this is highly unlikely but, possible in most cases. The most reported reasons is flat out sensor failure.
