What does that mean? This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.
Symptoms Symptoms can include:

  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
  • a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
  • the camshaft position sensor may have failed
  • the PCM may have failed
  • there exists an open circuit
  • the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required

My 2002 pt cruiser died while I was driving first the oil light came on then it just died! I just had the oil changed 3 days prior to it dying some of the codes I received were 0340 1684 1685...


P0340 is cam position sensor. P1685 is for the key(has a chip in it) P1684 is battery has been disconnected. If the engine will still crank then codes P1684 & P1685 are probably old codes. So if the car will still crank, lets forget about those codes and focus on P0340 A bad cam position sensor will cause the engine to die and not allow it to start back up. Replace the cam position sensor and clear the code and the car should start up.

What are these codes? P1391 and P0340?


http://www.obd-codes.com/p0340

P1391 Intermittent Loss of CMP or CKP

check your cam position sensor or its connection and wiring

The crank position sensor or its wiring may be suspect as well.

Symptoms of cam sensor 99 cavalier


The Camshaft Position Sensor and the Crankshaft Position Sensor can exhibit some of the same symptoms. Checking the Sensor's output is the best way to determine which has failed, but this won't work on an intermittently failing sensor, unless you can monitor the sensor output with the vehicle running.

Failing Symptoms:
Intermittent stalling, but starts right back up
Sometimes, longer than normal cranking times
Check engine light P0340

Failed Symptoms:
Check engine light P0340
No start, no spark

I HAVE A 99 CHRYSLER LHS AND IT SHUT DOWN AT IDLE AND TOOK TIME TO START BUT IT DID AND RAN LIKE **** SO THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON P0340 CAME UP SO I CHANGED THE CAM SENSOR BUT CAR STILL RUN LIKE **** I...


Try clearing the code and also disconnect the battery for a couple min. I had a car that had this problem. It did the same thing when the cam sensor was changed. I disconnected the battery and made the ecu relearn.

Its worth a shot, my next thing would be to check the coils.

Code p0340 on 2000 dodge intrepid


it might be the cam shaft sensor it might be the crank shaft sensor the best thing to do is replace them bolth. but it does sound like it may be either one because if one goes out the other will still work but when starting the car it will take longer for it to read from either or the one sensor that is still working because they work together to tell the system to deliver the gas. im pretty positive that it is either the cam or crank shaft sensor

I have a 2001 Dodge Intrepid and it keeps dying


Trouble code P0340 means: Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit (Bank 1 or single sensor). Recheck the sensor's gap. Remove the old paper spacer from the sensor and replace it with a new one or if you have a new sensor, make sure you have installed a new paper spacer installed before installing the new sensor. Good luck and it's common for after market cam/crank sensor to be more temperamental then the OEM.

P0340 OBD-II Trouble Code
Technical Description
Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction


What does that mean? This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.

Symptoms
Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
  • Loss of engine power

Causes A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
  • a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
  • the camshaft position sensor may have failed
  • the PCM may have failed
  • there exists an open circuit
  • the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

Possible Solutions With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required

Also, the cams/crank are out of alignment, thats why you are getting a cam position code (P0340). For more details about your model, you can visit autozone.com (free register)

Check Engine Light, Code p0340, triggered by other accessories?


its probably just grounded wires.. check your car's wiring.. if you can't do that yourself. Have an electrician/mechanic check it for you..
