If I'm understanding you the voltage the sensor is showing you is lower than specs. First check circuit for opens , resistance and shorts. Make sure sensor is getting correct voltage. If a-ok replace sensor.

Your crank sensor is bad. That is also what causes a no start like you are experiencing. The crank sensor takes the place of a distributor and tells the computer what position the engine or crank is at so it knows where to send the spark. You are going to need to have the crank sensor replaced.

How to test cam sensor 95 audi a6 2.8


Hi David, Remove the sensor and hook up an analogue voltmeter to the two cables. Set the meter at mili voltage and pass a metal screw driver across the business end of the sensor, without coming into contact with it. You should have a distance of about 0.5 of a millimeter gap between the sensor and the screw driver. The voltage generated is very small and the pulse will only occur as the field is broken. In other words its a two man job. If the needle of the meter moves the sensor is fine, if not replace it. It is very important to use an analogue meter as the pulse is too small to be noticed on most digital meters. Regards John
