Why won't the car start with the new Crank shaft position sensor installed? 2005 Buick Lacrosse cxl 3.8l engine.


After replacing crank sensor Perform the crankshaft position system variation learn procedure. Refer to Crankshaft Position System Variation Learn !
No you don't need to replace the balancer !
Install a scan tool.
Monitor the powertrain control module (PCM) for DTCs with a scan tool. If other DTCs are set, except DTC P0315, refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List - Vehicle in Vehicle DTC Information for the applicable DTC.
Select the crankshaft position variation learn procedure with a scan tool.
The scan tool instructs you to perform the following:
4.1. Accelerate to wide open throttle (WOT).
4.2. Release the throttle when fuel cut-off occurs.
4.3. Observe the fuel cut-off specifications for the applicable engine.
4.4. The engine should not accelerate beyond the calibrated RPM value.
4.5. Release the throttle immediately if the value is exceeded.
4.6. Block the drive wheels.
4.7. Set the parking brake.
4.8. DO NOT apply the brake pedal.
4.9. Cycle the ignition from OFF to ON.
4.10. Apply and hold the brake pedal.
4.11. Start and idle the engine.
4.12. Turn the A/C OFF.
4.13. The vehicle must remain in Park or Neutral.
4.14. The scan tool monitors certain component signals to determine if all the conditions are met to continue with the procedure. The scan tool only displays the condition that inhibits the procedure. The scan tool monitors the following components:
• Crankshaft position (CKP) sensors activity--If there is a CKP sensor condition, refer to the applicable DTC.
• Camshaft position (CMP) signal activity--If there is a CMP signal condition, refer to the applicable DTC.
• Engine coolant temperature (ECT)--If the engine coolant temperature is not warm enough, idle the engine until the engine coolant temperature reaches the correct temperature.
Enable the crankshaft position system variation learn procedure with the scan tool and perform the following:
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.
5.1. Accelerate to WOT.
5.2. Release when fuel cut-off occurs.
5.3. Test in progress.
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 in Vehicle DTC Information for the applicable DTC.

In my 2005 Pontiac Montana the OBD code reader reads code PO108 - Manifold absolute pressure sensor circuit, high input. What can cause this.


The PCM detects that the MAP sensor voltage is more than 4.3 volts for 3 seconds.
This DTC may set due to poor idle characteristics. A possible cause may be uncontrolled fueling due to an open or high resistance in the HO2S 1 low signal circuit. Before replacing any component, ensure that this condition does not exist.

Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Monitor the DTC information with the scan tool.
Is DTC P0641 also set?
--
YES - Go to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List - Vehicle
NO - Go to Step 3
3
Observe the throttle position (TP) sensor parameter with the scan tool.
Press the accelerator pedal slowly until the throttle is in the wide open position.
Release the accelerator pedal slowly until the throttle is returned to the closed position.
Repeat this procedure several times.
Does the TP sensor parameter increase steadily to more than the first specified value, and then decrease steadily returning to less than the second specified value?

If you would like help we would need the DTC - diagnostic trouble code .Is their a Reduced Engine Power Mode message showing on the instrument cluster ?
Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the PCM detects a problem with the throttle actuator control (TAC) system the PCM enters one of the following Reduced Engine Power Modes:
• Acceleration Limiting--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited Throttle Mode--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle Default Mode--The control module will turn off the throttle actuator.
• Forced Idle Mode--The control module will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning throttle position, or by controlling fuel and spark if throttle is turned off.
- Ignore accelerator pedal input.
• Engine Shutdown Mode--The control module will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
IF you do not know this your best bet would be to take to a qualified repair shop .
DTC P0506
DTC P0507
The throttle actuator control (TAC) motor is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM). The DC motor located in the throttle body drives the throttle plate. In order to decrease idle speed, the PCM commands the throttle closed reducing air flow into the engine and the idle speed decreases. In order to increase idle speed, the PCM commands the throttle plate open allowing more air to pass the throttle plate. If the actual idle RPM does not match the desired idle RPM within a calibrated time, this DTC sets.

DTC P0506

CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION

The throttle actuator control (TAC) motor is controlled by the engine control module (ECM). The DC motor located in the throttle body drives the throttle plate. In order to decrease idle speed, the ECM commands the throttle closed reducing air flow into the engine and the idle speed decreases. In order to increase idle speed, the ECM commands the throttle plate open allowing more air to pass the throttle plate. If the actual idle RPM does not match the desired idle RPM within a calibrated time, this DTC sets.

- The engine is operating for at least 60 seconds.
- The engine coolant temperature (ECT) is more than -60°C (-140°F).
- The intake air temperature (IAT) is more than -10°C (-14°F).
- The barometric pressure (BARO) is more than 65 kPa.
- The system voltage is between 9-18 volts.
- The vehicle speed is less than 1.6 km/h (1 mph).
- DTC P0506 runs continuously when the above conditions are met.

CONDITIONS FOR SETTING THE DTC
- The actual idle speed is approximately 100 RPM lower than the desired idle speed.
- The above condition is present for 5 seconds.

ACTION TAKEN WHEN THE DTC SETS
- The control module illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) on the second consecutive ignition cycle that the diagnostic runs and fails.
- The control module records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The first time the diagnostic fails, the control module stores this information in the Failure Records. If the diagnostic reports a failure on the second consecutive ignition cycle, the control module records the operating conditions at the time of the failure. The control module writes the operating conditions to the Freeze Frame and updates the Failure Records.

CONDITIONS FOR CLEARING THE MIL/DTC
- The control module turns OFF the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) after 3 consecutive ignition cycles that the diagnostic runs and does not fail.
- A current DTC, Last Test Failed, clears when the diagnostic runs and passes.
- A history DTC clears after 40 consecutive warm-up cycles, if no failures are reported by this or any other emission related diagnostic.
- Clear the MIL and the DTC with a scan tool.

The engine races and the temp drops. I asked the question yesterday and was told to check the idle air control. There is not one on my model. anyone?


I'm assuming that you have idle high in the engine, and IAC fault code.

DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE (DTC) 0505 IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE (IACV) CIRCUIT FAULT

Know Your Circuit:
* In order to regulate the air entering into the engine, the Engine Control Module (ECM) uses an Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve.
* To raise the idle rpm, the ECM handles the pintle inside the IAC valve away from the throttle body seat.
* This enables additional air to bypass through the throttle blade.
* To lower the rpm the ECM controls the pintle towards the throttle body seat.
* This successfully reduces the amount of air bypassing the throttle blade.
* A scan tool will note the IAC valve pintle position.
* The greater the count, the greater air is allowed to bypass the throttle blade.
* This DTC ensures whether a low idle condition exists as defined as 100 rpm below the desired idle rpm.

Pre -requisites For Setting the DTC:
· No intrusive tests are active.
· DTC(s) P0106, P0107, P0108, P0112, P0113, P0117, P0118, P0122, P0123, P0131, P0132, P0133, P1133, P1134, P0171, P1171, P0172, P0201, P0202, P0203, P0204, P0300, P0336, P0337, P0341, P0342, P0351, P0352, P0402, P0404, P1404, P0405, P0406, P0443, and P0502 are not set.
· Engine is running > 60 seconds.
· Barometric Pressure (BARO) is > 72 k Pa (10.4 psi).
· Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) is > 60°C (140°F).
· Ignition voltage ranges between 11 and 16 volts.
· The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) is > -20°C (-4°F).
· Manifold Absolute Pressure is less than 60 k Pa (8.7 psi).
· IAC valve is fully opened.
· All of the above must be met for more than 5 seconds.

Diagnostic Tools:
* Probe the IAC valve electrical connection for proper mating.
* Examine the wiring harness for damage.
* See whether the throttle stop screw shows signs of distortion.
* Also inspect the throttle linkage for signs of binding or excessive wear and tear.
* The following conditions may be created by a slow or unsteady idle:

1) Fuel system very high or low.
2) Foreign material in the throttle body or in the induction system bore
3) A leaking or restricted intake manifold.
4) Excessive engine overloading. Check for seized pulleys, pumps, or motors on the accessory drive
5) Excess engine oil.

I got a code P0101 and have cleaned the MAF, should this fix the problem?


P0101 shows possible failing PCV valve as well as the MAF sensor. If neither of these fixes the problem, it's a possible PCM issue.
