My pt cruiser has code 1391. i changed cam sensor crank sensor wires plugs and coil still getting 1391 code and from 0 mph to 20 mph car skips and revs up any ideas?


The cam and crank sensors have the same power wire. Go after that one. They also have the same ground, but other sensors connect to it also. So it's not the ground. And they have separate return signal wires. Not them either.

Codes diagnostic


Code 13 is a problem with the intake air temp sensor.
Code 15 is a problem with the idle speed control motor sensor circuit.
Code 21 is a problem with the coolant temp sensor.
And code 24 is a vehicle speed sensor fault.
You would need to erase the codes and see how many come back again before you start testing components. Something may have happened to the engine wiring harness.

Service active handling system light on


Try another dealer-- they chased you with intention to resolve

I don't have the reference material to give you any answer- but
they obviously didn't work those codes,old stored enhanced data
or not.

To go 5 mph-- you went into failsafe of some type

2005 pt cruiser has check engine light on repeatedly over past 6 months


Based on what you said, the PCM is about all that is left.
The code is for an intermittent problem with one of the two cam sensors. (intake)
The PCM is loosing the signal at random times.
It is possible a problem exists with the part on the cam that triggers the sensor, and low battery voltage to the PCM can do it.
Nothing to do with the fuel system or the ignition.

Engine stalls, p0720 engine light on. Runs ok than goes sporadic.


There are 2 possibilities here:
1.- There may be a problem with the new speed sensor, the electrical wiring between the speed sensor and the PCM, or an internal PCM problem. To see if VSS signal is present at the PCM a scan tool capable of displaying live data is required.

2.- There is a recall action on this model year for erroneous speed sensor signals; the cure is an updated software calibration. If your truck has not yet had the updated calibration installed, you should call your local Dodge dealership with your VIN number and ask the service department to check to see if there are any open recall actions on your vehicle. If the software calibration has not been updated yet, they will perform this procedure free of charge for you. If you do not have the current software calibration in your PCM to correct the VSS issue, you need to have this done before proceeding any further with attempting to diagnose this problem

This sensor is located at the rear of the transmission.

Symptom: P-0720 LOW OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR RPM, ABOVE 15 MPH
When Monitored and Set Condition: P-0720 LOW OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR RPM, ABOVE 15 MPH

When Monitored: Continuously with the key on, engine running, and gear selector not in park or neutral.
Set Condition: This code is set if the vehicle speed (as determined from the vehicle speed sensor), is above 15 MPH, and the output shaft speed is below 60 RPM for 2.6 seconds.

POSSIBLE CAUSES DTC CODE RETURNS:
OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR DEFECTIVE
PARK/NEUTRAL SWITCH CODE PRESENT
OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT OPEN
OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT OPEN
OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
PCM DEFECTIVE (DRB SHOWS > 60 RPM)
OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR HARNESS OBSERVABLE DEFECT
OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR WIRING HARNESS INTERMITTENT DEFECTIVE

Hope helps.

Since you have multiple codes, I would check the wiring harness at the ECM. If you can get your hands on a pin out sheet for the ECM it would help emincely. Sounds like you are loosing power or ground at the ECM. This could be from the pins loosing contact or a wire could be broken. I have found wires that were broke inside the rubber coating. some days they work, some days they don't.
Repair as necessary. And for the pins you can pull the plug and use a paper clip or something small and push the female pins together alittle, it doesn't take much. Usually when I do the push the pins together, I just do them all, better safe than sorry.

something to do with a cam/crank sensor --either one or both are failing or a wiring / harness problem which can leave you stranded the sensors are not expensive if you remember the code you can look it up on line and find the explanation and how to change them

Nissan altima starting problem


i think replacing the sensor is in order. i know all car makes have "recalibration updates" for the ecm and should be done, but have rarely fixed vehicles on just that alone. and your symptoms suggest the sensor could be intermittently bad
