If the problem code is still on, did you erase the code with a scanner. if not, the pcm will think there is still a problem, and the code will stay on. erase code with scanner. there may be a bad wire or connection in the sensor wire itself. check your wiring between the ECU and sensor. (This should have been done first.) before putting on parts that are or may not be bad.

99 grand cherokee wont start changed crank ,cam, map,fuel filter/relay back by the tank,got 53psi on the fuelrail,new computer new relays


just a couple thoughts. Injector fuse and relay(does fuse and relay have power to and from them). My understanding is sometime Anti theft will shut down injection pulse so car can not be run. Maybe even timing chain broke. I assume there is no trouble code.

Tcs light flashes and p0340 code


P0340 code means "Something" is wrong in the timing...
from CMP (Camshaft Position sensor) to the crankshaft bolt.

Very first thing, verify connectors are clean and shiny.
clear all codes, even hard codes.

Code 12 means you are in test mode, code 34 is a problem with the map sensor, and code 35 is a problem with the idle control valve.
But those two codes could show up if you disconnect those sensors or if the engine is having other problems.
In situations where the engine stalls, it is very easy to overlook something or assume a component is working.
Treat it like a no start. Pull a plug wire and watch the spark as the engine dies. Use carb cleaner or starting fluid to boost fuel supply.
You'll have to figure out if it is loosing spark or fuel to proceed.
Things like the coil, the stator in the bottom of the dist, or a relay can be the cause. Even low fuel pressure.

1997 plymouth voyager , It gives the P0340 code I had the cam sensor and crank sensor replaced. It will start sometimes and will not start for a long period other times I have also replaced the Computer...


Because It that code refers to the circut it could be any thing from an open circuit or bad ground, to a PCM if you have replaced the computer be sure that it was properly flashed or the vehicle wont run, most PCM/TCM/ECM aren't plug and play but if you replaced both sensors this is really all thats left its one of the items listed, I would check grounds that is kind of a popular one on the voyager.

If there were no codes present upon initial inspection, check for fuel pressure and replace the pump if nothing or little is present. This is most likely with no codes. Also replace the filter. Let me know if you need instructions on pump replacement.

I've got a 99 GMC but it died on me a couple of weeks ago.. I've had a friend hook it up to a diagnostic machince and it said cam sensor.We zerod out the code and my truck still doesn't fire... it turns...


Did you replace the cam sensor??? A code in the computer won't stop it from running, it just tells you there is an issue. It will clear itself when the issue is fixed. (After some driving)
Back up and see what is missing, spark or fuel. (Note...a working fuel pump may still not get fuel, as the injectors need to be "fired" to allow fuel into the engine.)
