Code 340 usually means the engine computer is not getting a signal from the sensor in crank mode.
If you have replaced the sensor, the problem could be in the wiring or the object on the cam that the sensor reads.

I fixed this issue before with more than just a cam position sensor.
I had to replace the crank sensor and clean all the engine wiring grounding points.

Tcs light flashes and p0340 code


P0340 code means "Something" is wrong in the timing...
from CMP (Camshaft Position sensor) to the crankshaft bolt.

Very first thing, verify connectors are clean and shiny.
clear all codes, even hard codes.

I was driving and car stopped I was low on oil and had been running the car on low fuel a lot car won't start I got codes p0340 p0113 p0123 I replaced starter and p0340 what could be the problem?


PO340 is the camshaft sensor, circuit malfunction

PO113 is intake air circuit--high input

PO123 is TPS sensor circuit A high input

Running your car low on oil is never good, how low was it---did it start knocking or did it overheat?
Running on low fuel is never good either, did you run out of gas and burn the fuel pump up?
Why did you replace the starter? Will the engine turn over and try to start? If your engine will crank over, check for spark at the plugs and check to see if you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail...This would be the best place to start troubleshooting.

I have fault codes P1684 & P0340 on my 2002


P1684 The battery has been disconnected within the last 50 starts.

P0340


This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.

  • Rough running / misfiring

2000 sunfire has p0336, p0340, p0130, where to


p0130 is an oxygen sensor code.
p0340 is your camshaft position sensor code
p0336 is your crankshaft position sensor code

as far as the p0130 code those usually are what i call neglected sensors that do not get replaced when they should be. this sensor is expensive but worth the money as it will help on fuel mileage.

on to the camshaft position sensor, i would start here with this. replace that sensor and when you are replacing it, inspect the sensor and make sure the electrical wires going into it are in good shape. after replacing those 2 sensors, go to a parts store who can erase your codes to turn the light off and then let us know if it comes back on and then we will go from there on the repair.

Hi, a P1684 is "Battery Disconnected Within Last 50 Starts". I wouldn't worry about that too much.

The P0340 is "Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction". I'd definitely look into that code. I found a great article specific to the p0340 code - http://www.obd-codes.com/p0340 - it should give you an idea on what to look for, test, replace, etc. Good luck!
