Replace crankshaft sensor as it sounds like you are not getting a spark to ignite fuel and this controls it

With all of the low voltage problems going on here I would check the body computer. That is the only thing I can think of that would cause all of this. Some others may have suggestions on this.

The primary intent of this code is to detect slipped camshaft timing. Have you checked the camshaft timing? Your symptoms indicate you are a tooth off.

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

Car would not start, after siiting for an hour it did start .


mcdevito75 here, BEST BET, let the shop do this work, too many un forseen problems could come up. The stalling and unable to start for a while could also be a bad ignition module, no test for this part, but I would have it changed, for if it is a bad ignition module, all this other work will not fix the stalling and later start of your car.

It needs both inputs from the camshaft and the crankshaft to know where the timing is to start. It should be tested before you go and throw parts at it.

1996 jeep grand chrokee turns over will not start, replaced cam shaft censor and ECM, and coil. distibuter cap looks bad has some white dust inside and contacts burnt. could it be that?


If you did not replace the CRANK sensor on the back side of the motor this most likely is the problem and a very common one at that.this controls spark and injector pulse,unlike the cam sensor which just shows when #1 cilyder is up.

Wont start


This a possible solution. My 2004 just killed on the way to work 3 weeks ago. It would turn over, but would not start. When my mechanic looked at it, I told him I thought it was the fuel pump, because that is how it seem to be acting. As if the pump was not sending fuel. Turns out it was a sensor behind the timing chain. The Cam Shaft sensor. Once that goes I guess it cuts the fuel. Hyundi's have a maintance schedule where you need to replace the timing chain at 40,000. It was the slack in the belt that caused the sensor to go. I had the two belts the the cam shaft sensor and one other sensor in that same place replaced and now it runs like a top. I hope that helps. And I hope that is not your problem. Parts were pretty cheap. But with labor it cost $900.
