There is no way of testing a crank sensor, unless you have a special tool that reads the pulses emmited by the sensor itself, only garages and good mechanics have this tool. its done while the vehicle is running. If your cars computer is telling you that there is no crank sensor signal, maybe the sensor is bad.

Crank and cam censer


You need a scope or a graphing multi-meter to test these sensors. You need to be able to see the wave form pattern to determine if they are working properly. 2 wire sensors are AC signal generators and you should not be testing these unless you know what you are doing as they generate AC current. You can ohm test 2 wire sensors when they are disconnected. Not a reliable way make a positive diagnosis unless they are out of range. In range sensors can still be bad. 3 wire sensors are hall effect type sensors and produce a square wave form. They are not dangerous to test you just need the right equipment and knowledge.

Without test main componets on the vehicle we would only be guessing . Doing electrical checks , hooking up a professional scan tool an viewing engine data etc. your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop . Spend the money for an hour diagnostic time .That is unless you like guessing an just replacing parts

it sounds to me like a bad censor...you would probably have to take it to a shop for them to run a diagnosic test, that should tell you what censor.

Cranks but wont turn over


you know. i took it to a mechanic and actually.... The timing belt cut the Crank Shaft Censor... So it was the crank shaft censor again. The wires were routed wrong from the first mechanic that "fixed" the car.
