Question about 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Dodge Grand Caravan 2005 P0016 code

This code is a cam and crank out of sync code.
I have replaced both sensors. Van has 80,000 on it. Idels and acc. great in Park. In drive sluggish to 3000 rpm intermittant power.
With AC on, van in drive, brake pushed and gas to floor there is no change in rpms. When van is under load on highway it acts like rev. limitter is kicking in. With van running,scanner hooked up during problem cam and crank never get out of sync.

Im assuming it is an engine that uses a timing belt. It sounds like the belt has jumped 1 tooth. if it only jumped 1 tooth than the computer will compesate the timing so it is possible the sensors will say they are ok. If it is a motor that uses a chain than it problaly needs a new gear/chain set.

Have a code P0016 have changed the crank & cam sensors, can't drive the car doesn't have enough power to drive.


Well you probably know code 16 means the signals coming from the cam and crank sensors going to the computer are not in sync.
Usually the problem is the timing belt or chain, in your case the engines use a chain.
It could be the chain, or one of the gears, or something else.

2005 dodge grand caravan wont start it cranka over


Hate to tell you but most likely your timing chain either broke or slipped, it could be cam or crank or both sensor

Diagnostic codes


Code 16 is for a problem with the timing between the cam and crank sensors, and code 339 is for a problem with the circuit for the crank sensor.
I would recommend checking the crank sensor and circuit back to the computer first.

2005 Dodge Magnum - 3.5 litre - 128,000 miles - P0016. Scan tool identifies both cam and crank to be in sync, yet code returns after about 2 minutes of running.


I was going to say that the timing belt had failed, if this wasn't replaced do so, and also replace the water pump as if it fails it will jump the T. belt and bend the valves.

Where Do I start with a P0016 code on my 2005 Dodge neon (2.0L)


P0016-CRANKSHAFT/CAMSHAFT TIMING MISALIGNMENT
Does the car run? If it doesnt run it may have slipped time.If it does run, use a scope if available and check for a weak or erratic signal from the cam and crank sensors. The cam sensors routinely go out on these cars but a bad crank sensor can cause the code also.

I pulled codes from a dodge grand carvan the code is p0016 crankshaft sensor b1 sa1 replaced and replaced camshalf sensor also still did not fix the problem what other part should i look at


Hello! The DTC P0016 inidicates a cranskshaft and camshaft misalignment. If you only replaced the camshaft position sensor - you may need to replace the crankshaft position sensor - which is located at the top where the engine and transmission connect.


Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!
