Question about Cars & Trucks
Error Code P0340 is a very common fault code. Your vehicles computers such as ECM, PCM and many more used the CMP or also known as camshaft position sensor to easily figure out what it should set the timing at. This is an important tool, since without knowing what the right timing should be the computer is useless.
The error code P0340 simply means that the computer has completely sent a signal to the camshaft position sensor however it does not see the right signal that is being returned from the sensor. Since the circuit is a concern, the problem could be in any component of the circuit such as PCM, wiring and sensor itself.
DEFINITION The CPS is an electronic device that is usually utilized in an engine to easily and quickly record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is basically used by ECM (also known as the Engine Control Module) that has the ability to control fuel injection and ignition. In addition to this, the camshaft position has the ability to sense the piston position. Apart from this, the sensor system consists of actual sensor, static part and rotating part. Once the engine is running, the low and high parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. This is one of the reasons why the changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. In this way, the magnetic field can cause the voltage from the sensor to change. When the crankshaft position sensor becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides different controls of the engine parts with the use of timing of cylinder identification signals.
