When this situation occurs, turn the ignition ON. You should hear the fuel pump, pump up to pressurize the system. If not, then look for a poor connection on the fuel pump and fuel pump ground wires. If you turn the ignition ON and the instrument panel lights, etc do not come ON, this points to a loose connection in the ignition circuit - maybe a faulty ignition switch.

Well...... Could be one out of a dozen things. You say "it runs for a few days". Were you having other issues? Rough running previous backfiring, sluggish?

Have a 1997 ford explorer with 4.0 sohc that died at stop and would not start. cranked but no start. error code was p0340. replaced crank sensor and started but died again in less than 2 minutes. still...

p0340 states: Cam Position Sensor A circuit (Bank 1, or single sensor)

p1318 : unknown code cannot find online or in my code reader definitions.

remember the code does not mean the part is bad just where to look for bad wires, connectors and to test for bad parts.

if you have access to a scan tool check the pid data for the crank sensor and for the cam sensor. common for old crank sensors to fail when hot. if they do fail then it would cause no spark.

Broken alternator belt

What's the difference between 'CRANKS" or 'TURN OVER'? Do you MEAN the engine cranks (turns over) but WONT start? If this is the problem, then there are NUMEROUS possible causes (i.e., fuel pressure (fuel pump) Bad Gas/Petrol, Ignition, Air Flow, Cylinder Compression, Crank Position Sensor, vacuum leaks, Nut behind the steering wheel, ECM, etc. An alternator belt would not cause the problem you describe. Take the vehicle back to the mechanic you replaced the belt and tell him to fix it!
