DTC P0315 Crankshaft Position (CKP) System Variation Not Learned
The crankshaft position (CKP) system variation learn feature is used to calculate reference period errors caused by slight tolerance variations in the crankshaft, and the crankshaft position sensors. The calculated error allows the powertrain control module (PCM) to accurately compensate for reference period variations. This enhances the ability of the PCM to detect misfire events over a wider range of engine speed and load. The PCM stores the crankshaft position system variation values after a learn procedure has been performed. If the actual crankshaft position variation is not within the crankshaft position system variation compensating values stored in the PCM, DTC P0300 may set. If the PCM detects the CKP system variation values are not stored in the PCM memory, DTC P0315 sets.
you need a factory scan tool to do the variation relearn .
Install a scan tool.
Monitor the engine control module (ECM) for DTCs with a scan tool. If other DTCs are set, except DTC P0315, refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List - Vehicle for the applicable DTC that set.
With a scan tool, select the CKP system variation learn procedure and perform the following:
3.1. Observe the fuel cut-off for the applicable engine.
3.2. Block the drive wheels.
3.3. Set the parking brake.
3.4. Place the vehicle's transmission in Park or Neutral.
3.5. Turn the air conditioning (A/C) OFF.
3.6. Cycle the ignition from OFF to ON.
3.7. Apply and hold the brake pedal for the duration of the procedure.
3.8. Start and idle the engine.
3.9. Accelerate to wide open throttle (WOT). The engine should not accelerate beyond the calibrated fuel cut-off RPM value noted in step 3.1. Release the throttle immediately if the value is exceeded.
Important: While the learn procedure is in progress, release the throttle immediately when the engine starts to decelerate. The engine control is returned to the operator and the engine responds to throttle position after the learn procedure is complete.
3.10. Release the throttle when fuel cut-off occurs.
The scan tool displays Learn Status: Learned this Ignition. If the scan tool indicates that DTC P0315 ran and passed, the CKP variation learn procedure is complete. If the scan tool indicates DTC P0315 failed or did not run, refer to DTC P0315 . If any other DTCs set, refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List - Vehicle for the applicable DTC that set.
Turn OFF the ignition for 30 seconds after the learn procedure is completed successfully.
Did you replace the crank sensor ?

Code p 0315 refers to crankshaft position system---variation not learned ===causes engine mechanical fault ---wiring
check for correct air gap from the sensor to the rotor and check for wiring and connections
