Question about Cars & Trucks
The connector for cam sensor shows three wires, that should be ref voltage-pink wire, black with white tracer- ground, signal-black wire. The signal wire carries signal to pcm. To check signal, is you have a digital multimeter that has a tach--duty cycle or dwell setting, they should react to a pulse on the signal wire. The ref voltage is 12 volts, probably goes hot with key on. The black wire with white-ground use an led testlight to check ground, should be computer safe.
There are several circuit that use the same 12 volt reference.

The camshaft position sensor is located on the engine near the timing belt cover and under the upper radiator hose.

crank sensor is a component used in an internal combustion engine to monitor the position or rotational speed of the crankshaft. This information is used by engine management systems to control ignition system timing and other engine parameters. Before electronic crank sensors were available, the distributor would have to be manually adjusted to a timing mark on the engine.
The crank sensor can be used in combination with a similar camshaft position sensor to monitor the relationship between the pistons and valves in the engine, which is particularly important in engines with variable valve timing. It is also commonly the primary source for the measurement of engine speed in revolutions per minute.
Crank sensors in engines are usually comprised of magnets and an inductive coil. They are principally based on the Hall effect. Common mounting locations include the main crank pulley, the flywheel, or occasionally on the crankshaft itself.
Some engines, such as GM's Premium V family utilise crank position sensors which read a reluctor ring integral to the Harmonic Balancer. This is a much more accurate method of determining the position of the crankshaft, and allows the computer to determine within a few degrees the exact position of the crankshaft (and thereby all connected components) at any given time.

when you are looking at the engine pull off the plastic cover on top then the front cover that covers you timing belt there is a wire harness tha goes right to it in the left upper coner two ten mil bolts and it comes off careful not to drop bolts down in belt that could be bad. it is that easy

crankshaft sensor is and the hormonic balance pulley and cam sesoor should b and the front of the motor toward the top. But to b sure u should get a book for u vehical
