2003 Dodge Neon: P0016 (already replaced sensors, belt, tensioner

2003 Dodge Neon. Check engine light is on, trouble code P0016 (Cam-Crankshaft Position Sensor A bank 1).

Have replaced Camshaft and Crankshaft position sensors, Light was still on. 70K miles so then went ahead and replaced timing belt and belt tensioner. Light is still on.

Timing marks on the belt line up, and the car runs just fine (starts ok, no hesitation or stalling, no knock or engine noise, normal full power).

All parts were bought at Advance Auto (aftermarket parts), service was done at Merchant Tire and Auto. Their mechanic says he doesn't know why its still on and says I'll have to take it to the dealer to figure out the problem.

Can anyone help?

The computer may need to be reflashed. if it is running then it is not a bad sensor. either of those being bad would cause it not to run.

P0016 and P0017 check engine pop up after i run for 10 to 15 miles?


the common causes for code P0017 are as follows:
  • A faulty cam or crank sensor
  • The cam or crank circuit is open or shorted
  • The timing belt/chain is out of time
  • The cam or crank tone ring is slipped/broken
  • A problem in the VVT system P0016 Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation (Bank 1 Sensor A) P0017 Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation (Bank 1 Sensor) God Bless! Hope this helps you.

Getting p0016 code


Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation
What does this mean? OBD Code P0016refers to
The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) and Camshaft position sensor (CMP) work in harmony to control the spark/fuel delivery and timing. They both consist of a reluctor, or tone, ring which passes over a magnetic sensor, which generates a voltage, indicating position. The crankshaft sensor is part of the primary ignition system and functions as the "trigger". It detects the position of the crankshaft relays that information on to the PCM or the ignition module (depending on the vehicle) to control spark timing. The Camshaft position sensor detects the position of the camshafts and relays the information to the PCM. The PCM uses the CMP signal to identify the beginning of the injector sequence. What ties these two shafts and their sensors together is the timing belt or chain. The cam and crank should be precisely timed together. If the PCM detects that the Crank and Cam signals are out of time by a specific number of degrees, this P0016 code will set.
Symptoms Possible sumptoms of OBD code P0016
Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination The engine may run but with reduced performance The engine may crank but not start The engine may exhibit a rattle near the harmonic balancer indicating the tone ring is damaged The engine may start and run, but poorly
Causes Possible causes of OBD code P0016
Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear Misalignment of timing belt/chain Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken Bad crank sensor Bad cam sensor Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
Possible Solutions First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck.

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.

Check your vacuum lines, it sounds like one did not get reconnected correctly. When this happens you check engine to come on and will cause your engine's rpm's to rise.

I currently own an 03 sebring same engine that also had this problem. And this is a common issue on these cars / engines. P0016 is CAM/CRANK Correlation Error. Means they aren't in sync with each other. I resolved mine by simply replacing the plugs and wires. Then A loose tensioner pulley on teh timing belt was throwing the code and ended up with the belt failing.

The mechanic said you were lucky becuase typically when these engine break a timing belt and the engine continues to run it bends / breaks valves which is massive internal damage and VERY costly to repair, hence the reason mine has been in my driveway since June.

I would start with replacing the coil and all spark plugs / wires. And ask yo umechanic if he changed all the tensioners and the water pump as well, teh water pump is timing belt ran on these engines and if there is the slightest amount of slop in any of the two tensioners and or the water pump it will cause this code to error.
