Question about 1999 Chrysler 300M
I have a 1999 chrysler 300m. while driving the car shuts down and won't turn over soon after. i took it to auto zone and had it tested and the machine read shaft cam position sensor circuit malfunction. i replaced that and it still read the same thing and contiue to cut off. could it be the throttle body position sensor.
This is a known problem with these vehicles. Never jump to conclusion as I am going to state, but it's the computers. They have a bad asd Auto Shut Down Circuit and they show a cam position sensor circuit failure. This comes from a short in the PCM Powertrain Control Module. Check the three wires to the cam sensor with the key on. One is a 5 volt reference, 12v and PCM of computer signal. It seems that the short will give you something around 8.5 volt reference instead of 5. It has to be 5 volt + or - .5 only as in it can be 4.5-5.5 volts. Also it is known that it can and will clatter the Auto Shut Down Relay.
