No, you need to repair the wiring or it has no way of knowing where the crankshaft is

Code p0113 is for the intake air temp sensor. It probably did not get plugged in during the egnine replacement. That will not cuase it not to idle. I need more information for that concern.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge stratus crankshaft sensor location?

The crankshaft or the shankcraft as we refer to it is inside the engine, it turns over the pistons. Never heard of such an animal. You may have a fuel pump going out, clogged fuel filter, fuel injectors, Idle air control valve going out, bad plugs, plug wires or distributors. Just began checking them one at a time.

SOURCE: The electronic throttle control light is flashing in my 2004 1500 5.7 Hemi truck, won't accelerate but does turn on, where should i start?

The 1st thing that MUST be done is to have the electronic engine control system computer (called the "PCM") scanned for fault codes, this gives you the starting point for diagnosis od why the warning/fault light is on. You can get the scan for fault codes done for free at any Autozone or similar discount auto parts store in your area. Aamco Transmission does the scan for free as well.

How to change crankshaft sensor on a 2001 cad catiera


Its on the side of the block firewall side ... REMOVAL Numbers in text in parenthesis correspond to numbered components in image. Disconnect the wiring harness (1) from the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor pigtail. Securely attach a scrap piece of wire about 36 inches long to the CKP sensor pigtail. Later, this piece will be used as a pull wire to guide the new sensor pigtail back through the same routing. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the oil filter and capture any lost engine oil in a container. Loosen the oil cooler lines at the engine block. Back out the fittings far enough in order to gain sufficient clearance for the sensor pigtail connector to pass between the oil cooler lines and the side of the engine block. Remove the fastening bolt for the CKP sensor (1). Remove the CKP sensor and the O-ring seal from the engine block. Remove the CKP sensor pigtail. Observe the routing of the pigtail. Gently pull the CKP sensor pigtail down through the routing path and out. Guide the pigtail connector along the top of the oil cooler lines around to the side of the engine block. Pass the connector between the lines and the block at the point of the widest gap. Stop when the pull wire is exposed at both ends of the routing path. Disconnect the sensor from the pull wire. INSTALLATION Securely attach the CKP sensor pigtail to the lower end of the pull wire. Pass the pigtail connector between the oil cooler lines and the engine block. Using the pull wire as a guide, pull the sensor pigtail along the top of the oil cooler lines and around to the rear of the engine. Use the pull wire to pull the pigtail into position. Disconnect the pull wire from the sensor pigtail. Connect the sensor pigtail to the harness connector. Thoroughly clean the mating surfaces of the CKP sensor and the engine block. Install the CKP sensor with a new O-ring seal into the engine block. Install the fastening bolt (1) for the CKP sensor. Check the harness for proper routing. Make sure that the wiring cannot come in contact with the exhaust manifold. Tighten the oil cooler lines at the engine block. Install the oil filter. Lower the vehicle. Recheck the engine oil level.

I have a code P320 on my 1999 Jeep Grand. What do I need to replace and how? Thanks for your help. John


Replace the crank sensor.


360dreamworx_25.gif
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is mounted to the transmission bellhousing at the left/rear side of the engine block. The sensor is adjustable and is attached with one bolt. A wire shield/router is attached to the sensor.

REMOVAL
  1. Disconnect sensor pigtail harness (3-way connector) from main engine wiring harness.
  2. Remove sensor mounting bolt.
  3. Remove wire shield and sensor.
INSTALLATION
New replacement sensors will be equipped with a paper spacer glued to bottom of sensor. If installing (returning) a used sensor to vehicle, a new paper spacer must be installed to bottom of sensor. This spacer will be ground off the first time engine is started. If spacer is not used, sensor will be broken the first time engine is started.
  1. New Sensors: Be sure paper spacer is installed to bottom of sensor. If not, obtain spacer PN05252229.
  2. Used Sensors: Clean bottom of sensor and install spacer PN05252229.
  3. Install sensor into transmission bellhousing hole.
  4. Position sensor wire shield to sensor.
  5. Push sensor against flywheel/drive plate. With sensor pushed against flywheel/drive plate, tighten mounting bolt to 7 Nm (60 in. lbs.) torque.
  6. Route sensor wiring harness into wire shield.
  7. Connect sensor pigtail harness electrical connector to main wiring harness.

I have a 1999 dodge durango. my wife went to get in it after work & it would'nt start. I replaced the coil and it started right up. A week later it did the same thing. Replaced the coil again but still...


could be crank sensor or possibly the auto shutdown relay. use a test light to check for voltage at the coil. Hook the test light clip to ground and back probe the dark green/orange stripe wire at the coil connector. With the key on, the light should light. If not, swap the relay with another similar one--say the horn relay and try again. If still no voltage, interrogate the relay socket per instructions here: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check .
If there is power at the dark green wire, check the connector on the crankshaft sensor. I have pasted your wiring diagram as well as instructions for checking and replacing the cranks sensor below. Please let me know if you have questions.

Crankshaft Position Sensor TESTING On the 2.5L engine, the Crankshaft Position (CMK) sensor is located near the outer edge of the flywheel (or starter ring gear). On other models it is fitted to the right side of the engine block.
The only test you can perform without a DRBII scan tool, or equivalent, is a basic check of the sensor only.

  1. Disconnect the sensor harness connector from the main wire harness connector.
  2. Place an ohmmeter across terminals 1 and 2 (see the illustration). The meter reading should be open (infinite resistance). If a low resistance is read, replace the camshaft position sensor.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

All Except V-10 Engine

  1. Remove the air cleaner assembly if necessary for access to the sensor.
  2. Disconnect the pigtail harness from the sensor.
  3. Remove the nut holding the sensor wire clip to the fuel rail mounting stud.
  4. Remove the sensor mounting hardware, then the sensor.
  5. Remove the clip from the sensor wire harness.

To install:
  1. Install the sensor flush against the opening.
  2. Install and tighten the bolts or nuts, as applicable.
  3. Install the electrical connector.
  4. Install the clip on the sensor wire harness.
  5. Install the clip over the fuel rail mounting stud. Install the clip mounting nut.

A 2004 Dodge stratus with the 4 cylinder that will not start


code p 16 refers to crankshaft position/cam shaft position bank 1 sensor A--correlation====causes ---wiring---CKP sensor ( crankshaft position sensor )---mechanical fault

code p 0340 refers to -camshaft (CMP) sensor A bank 1 circuit malfunction ===causes wiring--CMP sensor--ECM
cosrs nothing to check the timing belt , just remove the oil filler cap and see if the rockers are moving when turning it over
the clue here may be bewteen the 2 codes , the word correlation and circuit malfunction so check the wiring, harness connections for pin corrosion and then substitute the ECM with a know good unit as the correlarion and circuit malfunction could be in the ECM
if the ECM program is not getting good reports for both sensors then it reasons that the piston and cam shaft are not timed properly and so will not allow it to start

No there is no shut off device.What you should look for is what else the rat might have eaten.Where there is one there are more and when they get hungry they will eat anything.Check your wiring under the car and hood.Check it over good.Good luck.

Crankshaft position sensor pigtail


If this dodge is fitted with the Cummins engine it will be at the rear of the engine, you will find a hall sensor there that is your crankshaft position sensor. Cummins upgraded an existing engine and could only fit the toothed gear at the rear of the engine to make it practical on the new common rail fuel injection systems.
