DTC P0340: Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit
P0340 ?€¢
The ECM detects that the starter is commanded on and the engine has been cranking for more than 4 seconds without a CMP sensor pulse.


OR


?€¢
The ECM detects that the engine has started, but did not received a CMP sensor pulse during the first engine revolution.


OR


?€¢
The ECM detects that the engine is running, but does not receive a CMP sensor pulse for 800 of 1,000 engine cycles.


The 4X camshaft position (CMP) sensor circuits consist of an engine control module (ECM) supplied 5-volt reference circuit, low reference circuit, and an output signal circuit. The CMP sensor is an internally magnetic biased digital output integrated circuit sensing device. The sensor detects magnetic flux changes of the teeth and slots of a 4-tooth reluctor wheel attached to the camshaft. As each reluctor wheel tooth rotates past the CMP sensor, the resulting change in the magnetic field is used by the sensor electronics to produce a digital output pulse. The sensor returns a digital ON/OFF DC voltage pulse of varying frequency, with 4 varying width output pulses per camshaft revolution that represent an image of the camshaft reluctor wheel. The frequency of the CMP sensor output depends on the velocity of the camshaft. The ECM decodes the narrow and wide tooth pattern to identify camshaft position. This information is then used to determine the optimum ignition and injection points of the engine. The ECM also uses CMP sensor output information to determine the camshaft relative position to the crankshaft, to control camshaft phasing, and for limp-home operation.
You need a cam sensor or have wiring problem !

My 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2.4L keeps getting the code of "P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)"


Hi tazzsofly, I'm glad to help!

Anytime, you have a "CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION CODE" it means the problem can be in the sensor, the wiring, the connector at the sensor or connector at the engine controller or even the engine controller itself. FIRST: Check all the related wiring and connectors if you find NO Damage to the wiring or connectors then there is a possibility the NEW SENSOR could be faulty OR the Engine Controller could be the issue. Hope this helps and have an awesome day tazzsofly.

04 dodge neon showing P0325 and P0340 codes at same time.


Code 0325 is for a Knock sensor. Code 0340 is for the Cam sensor #1 if this is an engine with 2 heads and it is an indication of a single sensor on single head engines.

So if you do have a multiple hed engine, you may have removed the good sensor and left the bad sensor in the other head.

Remember to wipe the computer memory after installing new parts.

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!
