CPS on a modern vehicle is the main input to the engine management computer to determine spark advance. If the CPS is toast then the EMC is not getting a good input to adjust timing.

P0321 Spark Reference Circuit. The spark reference signal is used by the PCM to improve ignition timing accuracy during crank and at engine speeds of up to 1,200 RPM. The spark reference circuit allows the use of ignition control mode below 400 RPM, eliminating the need to utilize module mode during start-up, and also allows the PCM to calculate true crankshaft position in 1/6 the time that use of the fuel control reference signal would permit. During normal operation, the PCM uses the spark reference signal to control ignition timing until the engine speed exceeds 1200 RPM, at which time the fuel control reference signal is used. There is no connection to the TCS.
If everything checks ok then the PCM is defective PCM.

po121 means that there is a problem with the throttle position sensor ( tps). or in the wiring or connector, most likely its the tps that is bad. first remove connection from tps, heres how to test. use an ohms meter and hook a lead to top or bottom terminal of tps. use other probe on center terminal of tps. move throttle plate slowly, if the needle on meter does not move at a smooth pace, then tps is bad. good-luck!!

The CPS is positioned so that these teeth/cogs pass very closely to its magnetic end. As the crankshaft rotates, the raised areas pass by the sensor and complete the electromagnetic circuit. When the indentations (between the teeth) pass the CPS, the circuit is briefly interrupted. Since the camshaft rotates very quickly, the process of repeatedly completing and interrupting the circuit occurs in milliseconds. This progression of completing and interrupting the CPS circuit produces a waveform pattern. This pattern is recognized by the PCM as crankshaft position. The CPS and all of the camshaft position sensors function in much the same manner.
When the engine is running, the PCM constantly compares input signals from the crankshaft and the camshafts. If the crankshaft position is not within a specified degree of variation from the camshaft/s, under a given set of circumstances for a set period of time, a P0336 code will be stored and a malfunction indicator lamp may be illuminated.
Typically, when this code is set, the engine will not start. If the engine does start, it will likely run very poorly. Symptoms of P0336
  • Engine no start condition
  • Hesitation upon acceleration
  • General lack of engine performance
  • Diminished fuel efficiency
Troubleshooting P0336 A diagnostic scanner, a digital volt/ohmmeter (DVOM), a portable oscilloscope, and access to a reliable vehicle information source such as All Data DIY will be needed before attempting to diagnose a code P0336.
Begin with a visual inspection of all system related wiring harnesses and connectors. Wiring circuits, electrical sensors, and/or connectors that have been contaminated with engine oil, coolant, or power steering fluid should be your focus. Petroleum based fluids are known to corrode the protective insulation on wiring and lead to shorted or open circuits and possibly a stored P0336.

I changed the harmonnic ballancer and the sensor and got code p0336 didnt have this code untill I had to change harmonic.


P0336 Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Range/Performance.

Potential causes of a P0336 code include:

  • Bad crank sensor
  • Broken reluctor ring (missing teeth, debris lodged in ring)
  • Reluctor ring dislodged/stripped from it's stationary location
  • Wiring harness chafing causing short
  • Wiring open in CKP circuit, good-day ! CKP=crankshaft position sensor. The Crankshaft position sensor also known as the crank position sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the crankshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Electronic Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor. good-day !
