Check for power and ground at the plug first. Wires tend to break at the plug.

This means the sensor isn't working. That can be caused by a bad connector or broken wire.
Check the connections to the camshaft sensor. don-ohio (:^)

I have a nissan murano 2005 with the code p1701 and a p0340 how can i use them to repair these codes


Nissan Murano P0340 2005 Nissan Murano - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit
Possible causes- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor-
Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection- Faulty starter motor- Starting system circuit-
Dead (Weak) battery
P1701- Fuel trim

I would suggest replacing the camshaft position sensor. When the sensor fails it can cause changes in fuel system that the computer can detect. So I suspect once the camshaft sensor ivreplaced that the P1701 code will be gone.

I have 2 engine codes on my 2005 dodge neon. they are p0325 and p0340. the car has problem starting and misses badly for a while. What is the problem and how do i fix it? thanx for the help!


the p0325 code pertains to a knock censor. the p0340 is for your cam shaft sensor. i've had this problem before. try replacing the cam shaft censor first and run the codes again to see if the other still comes up. it should fix the problem. hope this helps

98 Taurus P0340 code still present after replacing camshaft sensor and synchronizer. Car not starting all the time. I do not see the spark when car will not start. Then replaced the crank sensor. Still...


all ways turn the motor over a few times and recheck timing marks a slack belt can put it a tooth out, if the code is back it means the fault is still there, did they remove the code and test drive if so the fault is not fixed.

2005 hyndia accent check engine light came on,1 day later car stalled and would not start. code p0340 cam shaft sensor replaced it still wont start gets spark fuel pump turns on any thoughts or suggestions...


Check that the timing has not jumped, incorrect timing will trigger a cam sensor code as the ecu can not work out the correct position of the cam.

I have a diagnostic code 340 and 320 on a 1997 Jeep Cherokee. What might the problem be?


DTC P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
  • Loss of engine power
Causes:A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
  • a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
  • the camshaft position sensor may have failed
  • the PCM may have failed
  • there exists an open circuit
  • the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

Possible Solutions:With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required

DTC P0320 also have with this wrong.

Sevice engine light indicates a misfiring but engine runs smoothly? Mechanics replaced a sensor but the light comes on again after a couple miles.


Ask them what the code is that is stored. If it is a P0340 it maybe the camshaft sensor which usually is destroyed by the sync shaft. I am a Ford Motor Company Master tech. here to help. No flashing of the light means a misfire event is not present. If they replaced the cam sensor and sync. shaft but it is not timed correctly the code will reset.

2002 Mits Galant has a hard time to start


Your P0340 is a different problem from your P0303, but they may be related.

Since the code P0340 indicates that there is something wrong with your cam speed sensor, your misfiring in cyl3 may be caused by this.

This points to addressing the P0340 error before the P0303 since it could be contributing to the 303 in the first place. Look at your cam speed sensor in cyl3 and maybe this would solve both problems at once.

Hope this helps.

Most common cause for code P0340 of 95 Ranger


Hi, the cam shaft sensor will be located Under the hood, center, upper engine area, mounted behind rear of intake manifold, in the engine block.


This is a magnetic or hall effect sensor. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration. This information determines when the fuel/air mixture needs to be ignited and how much mixture is needed for the engine.

The possible causes of failure will be faulty housing or faulty wires as well. A faulty ECM could trigger a false alarm as well. this is highly unlikely but, possible in most cases. The most reported reasons is flat out sensor failure.

I would think it would be just the Camshaft Position Sensor.I looked up the codes and they say pretty much the samething.
