Question about 2003 Cadillac CTS
Posted by Anonymous on
The same thing happened to my 03 CTS. The camshaft position sensor code is often thrown for a variety of reasons. In my case somehow the ECM went when the timing belt jumped (after the serpentine belt broke). It was a bear to diagnose but after installing a rebuilt ECM it runs great. (Don't make the mistake I made: the cylinder head gaskets will fit nicely on either side but if not placed on the correct sides you'll block the single oil port which provides engine oil to the head)

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

It is located under the water pump. Make sure when you remove the sensor that you rotate the crank shaft and look in the hole to make sure the pick up magnet is still in there. Sometimes they come loose and cause a no start or long crank. You will need to have the code cleared still.

Well either coincidence that the cam sensor went bad, you forgot to plug in the cam sensor, Or you have the cam that the sensor reads off of 1 tooth off. Check to see if its plugged in if yes remove the upper timing cover and see if everything lines up.

the computer may need to be reflashed. if it is running then it is not a bad sensor. either of those being bad would cause it not to run.
