01 oldsmobile aurora crank sensor code

I recently did a diagnostic test for my V8 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0 and as a result received the following codes, P1372, P0385, P0386, & P0335. I would like to first of all ask would any of these codes cause the car to shut off and stall to start. Do you know if it is possible to fix the problem yourself or would you suggest taking the vehicle to a mechanic.

    i have 01 aurora w/v8 [4.0] have a problem with shutting off at traffic lites and ocasionally while running - hot -cold doesn't matter. have several [13]codes but have 2 crank sensor and 1 cam sensor codes that stand out as worst codes. would this be the reason its shutting down all the time?would this also be the reason when i accel the motor it shuts down @ 4000 rpm then picks back up [doesn't totally die]? thx

    My 2003 Olds V8 4.0 cuts out (stalls) at traffic lights or in the middle of driving on the highway. Happens intermittantly and does not trigger a code. It starts up immediately but it's like a quick "power outage" and is fine after that. Someone said it may be a bad cam sensor. Does that sound like the likely culprit?

    2001 aurora v8 4.0 stalls while driving,starts up quick,But is becomeing a hastle... how do i fix it? is it the fuel injectors?

    My wife's car had the same problem. And after fixing the O2 sensors and the
    crank sensors the car would still shut off on her one day and not the next. I went to a parts shop and had them connect the code reader to the Aurora. Up came the idle control valve. I replace it and the problem went away, so far. But it was a shame the dealership we took it to did not think of checking this out.

    i am having a very rough idle when the car warms up a little, sometimes stalls at lights, had a crank sensor code, along with misfires come up. I have changed the coil pack on the side with the misfiring cyl. and it worked for a little but after a week, it has gone back to the same results, a little less tho, but it still happens. stalls on highway sometimes, and bad gas milage. and ideas? i heard this may also be crank sensors. plz help

In my experience, these codes point to the crankshaft postion sensor(S) It is best to have them both replace. After replacement, a "crank position variance re-learn" procedure will need to be done to relearn the new sensors. This will need to be done with a dealership scanner, or a higher end non-dealer scanner.Yes, these can cause these staling and starting problems, but so can a few other things. First step is to get the crank position sensors replaced, learned, and codes cleared.

Crank and cam sensor replaced . cars starts and run but still reads code 335 . cranksensor circuit malfunction. and idea whats the issue why this code is still coming up.?


the sensor may be good its the circuit code which means can be a wiring /connection problem not just the sensor the following link is courtesy of obd-codes.comP0335 - Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction What does that mean? The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) measures crankshaft location and relays this information to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Depending on the vehicle, the PCM uses this crankshaft position information to time the spark properly or on some systems it is only for misfire detection and does not control spark timing. The CKP sensor is stationary and works in harmony with a reluctor ring (or toothed ring) that is attached to the crankshaft. As this reluctor ring passes in front of the CKP sensor, the magnetic field created by the CKP sensor is interrupted and this creates a square wave voltage signal that the PCM interprets as crankshaft position. If the PCM detects that there are no crankshaft pulses or if it sees a problem with the pulses on the output circuit, P0335 will set. Symptoms NOTE: If the crank sensor is used only for misfire detection and NOT spark timing (this varies with the vehicle), the vehicle should start and run with MIL (Malfunction indicator lamp) illumination. Also, some vehicles require several key cycles to illuminate the MIL. If this is the case, there may be no MIL illumination until the problem often enough over time. If the crank sensor is used for BOTH misfire detection and spark timing, the vehicle may or may not start. Symptoms may include: Vehicle may not start (see above) Vehicle may run rough or misfire MIL illumination Causes A P0335 "check engine light" code could be caused by: Damaged CKP sensor connector Damaged reluctor ring (missing teeth or not turning due to sheared-off keyway) Sensor output open Sensor output shorted to ground Sensor output shorted to voltage Failed crank sensor Broken timing belt Failed PCM Possible Solutions Using a scan tool, check if, when engine is running or cranking, that there is an RPM signal. If there is no RPM reading, then visually inspect the crank sensor and connector for any damage and repair as necessary. If there is no visible damage, and you have access to a scope, you could check the CKP 5 Volt square wave pattern. If you do not, then, obtain a resistance reading of your crank sensor from a repair manual. (There are so many different types of crank sensors that there's no way to put here which resistance reading is correct). Then check the resistance of the CKP sensor by disconnecting the sensor and measuring resistance of the sensor. (It is best to check resistance readings from the PCM connector. This rules out any wiring problems from the start. But it does require some mechanical skill and shouldn't be performed if you\'re not familiar with automobile electrical systems). Is the sensor within resistance specs? If not, replace the CKP sensor. If so, recheck resistance reading from the PCM connector. Is the reading still okay? If not, repair open or short in the wiring to the crank sensor and re-check. If the reading is okay, the problem is intermittent or the PCM may be at fault. Try reconnecting and checking for RPM signal again. If there is now an RPM signal, wiggle test the wiring harness to try and induce the fault. This code is basically identical to P0385. This code P0335 refers to Crankshaft Posistion Sensor "A", whereas P0385 refers to Crankshaft Position Sensor "B". Other crank sensor codes include P0016, P0017, P0018, P0019, P0335, P0336, P0337, P0338, P0339, P0385, P0386, P0387, P0388, and P0389.

What is the problem? I have a code flashing PO717 from a diagnostic scan on my 1996 Olds Aurora.


The PO717 code is for the transmission input speed sensor, or the wires. The sensor is located inside the transmission.

Oldsmobile Aurora Problems


Crank position sensor should be in the area of the crank pully the largest pully on the front of the motor held in by one 10mm bolt The fuel tank pressure sensor can be bought separate but usually comes with a new fuel pump so the sensor is on top of the fuel pump exterior of the tank

I got a 2001 Oldsmobile aurora that the code reads PO301


well that code means ur have a missfire in cylinder one change the wires for the spark plugs that really the only thing i can think off beacuse you have already done the spark plugs and the oxygen sensors and the coil packs

2001 oldsmobile aurora cranks but wont start


Yes your brother is partially right. the code says that it is the sensor circuit. so test the sensor and the wires. Does it seem to turn over faster than usual? if so your suspicions would also be correct (timing belt).

Where is the o2 sensor located on my 01 aurora 4.0


There are 4 of them, on the exhaust manifolds and system. I replaced mine only to find out the real issue was the intake manifold plenum gasket.

Hi there:
DTC P0335 - Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction
The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) measures crankshaft location and relays this information to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Depending on the vehicle, the PCM uses this crankshaft position information to time the spark properly or on some systems it is only for misfire detection and does not control spark timing. The CKP sensor is stationary and works in harmony with a reluctor ring (or toothed ring) that is attached to the crankshaft.

If the PCM detects that there are no crankshaft pulses or if it sees a problem with the pulses on the output circuit, P0335 will set.

Also, some vehicles require several key cycles to illuminate the MIL. If this is the case, there may be no MIL illumination until the problem often enough over time. If the crank sensor is used for BOTH misfire detection and spark timing, the vehicle may or may not start. Symptoms may include:
Vehicle may not start (see above)
Vehicle may run rough or misfire
MIL illumination

A P0335 "check engine light" code could be caused by:
Damaged CKP sensor connector
Damaged reluctor ring (missing teeth or not turning due to sheared-off keyway)
Sensor output open
Sensor output shorted to ground
Sensor output shorted to voltage
Failed crank sensor
Broken timing belt
Failed PCM

Possible Solutions: using a scan tool, check if, when engine is running or cranking, that there is an RPM signal.
If there is no RPM reading, then visually inspect the crank sensor and connector for any damage and repair as necessary. If there is no visible damage, and you have access to a scope, you could check the CKP 5 Volt square wave pattern.

It show code po385


P0385 - Crankshaft Position Sensor B Circuit Malfunction
The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) measures crankshaft location and relays this information to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Depending on the vehicle, the PCM uses this crankshaft position information to time the spark properly or on some systems it is only for misfire detection and does not control spark timing. The CKP sensor is stationary and works in harmony with a reluctor ring (or toothed ring) that is attached to the crankshaft. As this reluctor ring passes in front of the CKP sensor, the magnetic field created by the CKP sensor is interrupted and this creates a square wave voltage signal that the PCM interprets as crankshaft position. If the PCM detects that there are no crankshaft pulses or if it sees a problem with the pulses on the output circuit, P0385 will set.

Symptoms:

NOTE: If the crank sensor is used only for misfire detection and NOT spark timing (this varies with the vehicle), the vehicle should start and run with MIL (Malfunction indicator lamp) illumination. Also, some vehicles require several key cycles to illuminate the MIL. If this is the case, there may be no MIL illumination until the problem often enough over time. If the crank sensor is used for BOTH misfire detection and spark timing, the vehicle may or may not start. Symptoms may include:

Damaged CKP sensor connector
Damaged reluctor ring (missing teeth or not turning due to sheared-off keyway)
Sensor output open
Sensor output shorted to ground
Sensor output shorted to voltage
Failed crank sensor
Failed PCM

Possible Solutions:
* Using a scan tool, check if, when engine is running or cranking, that there is an RPM signal.
* If there is no RPM reading, then visually inspect the crank Sensor Bnd connector for any damage and repair as necessary. If there is no visible damage, and you have access to a scope, you could check the CKP 5 Volt square wave pattern. If you do not, then, obtain a resistance reading of your crank sensor from a repair manual. (There are so many different types of crank sensors that there's no way to put here which resistance reading is correct). Then check the resistance of the CKP sensor by disconnecting the Sensor Bnd measuring resistance of the sensor. (It is best to check resistance readings from the PCM connector.

Try reconnecting and checking for RPM signal again. If there is now an RPM signal, wiggle test the wiring harness to try and induce the fault.

This code is basically identical to P0335. This code P0385 refers to Crankshaft Posistion Sensor "B", whereas P0335 refers to Crankshaft Position Sensor "A". If you have the code P0385, your vehicle is equipped with two crank sensors (CPS). Other crank sensor codes include P0016, P0017, P0018, P0019, P0335, P0336, P0337, P0338, P0339, P0385, P0386, P0387, P0388, and P0389.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).
