SOURCE: replaced cam shaft sensor now the code flashes

DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FOR ABOUT 5 MINS THEN PUT THE CAR IN LOW GEAR AND RUN THE CAR DOWN THE ROAD UP TO 4,000 RPM THEN LET OFF AND LET THE CAN SLOW DOWN ON ITS OWN ,DO THIS THREE TIMES .WHAT THIS DOES IS LET THE CAMSHAFT SENSOR AND THE CRANKSHAFT SENSOR LEARN EACH OTHER ,THIS HAPPENS ON THE DECELERATION PART WHEN THE ECU SHUTS THE INJECTORS OFF .THEIR IS MORE TO THIS.BUT THIS WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM

I would google the code and see what other owners did to correct the problem. It may be an electrical short or lose connection in harness.

Cam shaft sensor code p0340 replaced still no start


You will get a cam shaft code if the timing belt is broken. This could be you issue. I would check the timing belt before you go any further.
It can damage your engine if you keep trying to start it.

What if you changed both crank shaft and cam shaft sensors and the car still doesn't run what's the next open to check


Check for spark , fuel and a good air filter. The ECU may not be getting signals from all the other sensors. Run a diagnostics to see what codes come up.

if its throwing a code for cam sensor but new sensor does not fix it given the fact of recently replacing the timing chain id say it sounds like the timing was not set correctly which is causing the cam sensor to receive abnormal readings throwing the check engine light on. pull cover and check timing mark placement against specifications

Cam shaft sensor


You always need to check the wiring system when you get a code and not just throw parts at it,I'm sorry this happened to you.

Error code po340 for a 2002 hyundai elantra


Here is what I could find on your P0340 error code:
CausesA 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 SolutionsWith 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
Sounds like since you have replaced both the camshaft and crank shaft sensors you need to look at the PCM.  Go down the line of possible solutions and don't replace the PCM unless nothing else works obviously.  I hope this helps but it looks like you are looking at getting a new PCM.  Good luck.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
