Question about 2003 Dodge Stratus
MY Stratus will not start and I do not know where the camshaft sensor is to check it. What can cause it not to start?
The cam sensor is usually located at the front, on the end of a cam shaft. You may also want to change the crank position sensor. BUT.......check the timing belt first, make sure it is still intact. I'm not sure if they still used the Mitsubishi engine in 03, but check your cap too. The distributor cap also (I think...) has a pick up and a silver disc under the cap. The Mitsubishi engine, they went bad frequently.

SOURCE: Cam Shaft Sensor Problems
Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.

Cam is on the end of the block, crankshaft sensor is on the bottom of the block. Both are easy to change....are you changing these due to poor performance or no start condition?

SOURCE: Camshaft sensor location
The cam sensor on the 4.7 is located toward the forward edge of the right cylinder head (passenger side). This has a 3 wire connector, tan/with yellow tracer is sensor signal, black / light blue tracer wire is sensor ground and the orange is the 5V supply.
