If the CKP has died completely there will be very high resistance between the device's electrical connections associated with the open circuit. Furthermore spark delivery to the plugs will be absent. First check that the electrical connection is clean and secure; dirt or corrosion can impair an otherwise healthy CKP signal from getting through. If the CKP suffers from a drop in voltage associated with heat increase this can only be detectable with a voltmeter or oscilloscope with a graphical display; an analogue display voltmeter might just be able to show needle fluctuations due to voltage variation output.

Look at the electrical connector with the CKP:

2 pin socket (magnetic - sine wave output). One pin is 'ground' the other is 'signal'. A voltmeter set to 2 volts AC should measure a signal in the 0.2 to 2 volts range on the 'signal' pin.

3 pin socket (Hall effect, magneto - square wave form output). One pin is 'reference' (5volts), one pin is 'ground' and the third pin is 'signal'. A DC voltage should be detectable in the 0.5 to 1.5 volt range from the 'signal' pin.

It is important that the voltage measurement take place at start up when the engine is cold and again, 20 minutes later, when the engine has fully warmed up to operating temperature. Often the voltage output from faulty sensors declines with temperature rise.

How to fix? Check the wiring for continuity and that the electrical connection is clean and secure. Remove the CKP and clean off any dirt build up on the tip.

If you strongly suspect the crank sensor as being at fault it is a relatively inexpensive device to replace.

If the above does not solve the issue I would carry out the exact same diagnostic on the cam position sensor. In fact it is not a bad idea to at least test the cam sensor at the same time as testing the crank sensor as they work on very similar principles and are prone to the same faults. Time spent diagnosing the problem can reduce the amount you spend in dollars on spare parts.

- Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Crankshaft Position (CKP)
- Ignition System
- Fuel Injectors
- Running out of fuel
- Fuel Quality
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) P0306 - Cylinder 6 Misfire Detected Symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/loss of power
- Hard start
- Engine hesitation
Possible causes - Faulty spark plug 6
- Faulty ignition coil 6
- Ignition coil 6 harness is open or shorted
- Ignition coil 6 poor electrical connection
- Clogged or faulty fuel injector 6

WHERE IS THE CRANK SHAFT SENSOR LOCATED


The 2002 Santa Fe came with three (3) possible powertrains (engines). The 4 cylinder, and two different V6 engines - i.e. 2.4L 4 cylinder, the 2.7L V6 and the 3.5L V6.

The crankshaft position sensor on the 4 cylinder and the 3.5L V6 are in the same place - Front Crank Shaft behind the pully (behind the timing belt cover.

On the 2.7L V6, the Cranshaft Position Sensor is located in the engine block (Left Hand Side)
near the flywheel (adjacent to the LH (Bank 2) exhaust manifold.

Note: Left Hand Side means the radiator side (front) Bank 1 is the firewall side.

I just bought a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. The owner said they were driving and it just quit. It still turns over but doesnt fire. There is spark and compression. The timing belt is not broken but is cracking...


Probably needs a crankshaft position sensor. If the belt is cracking a piece of the belt might have damaged the "eye" in the sensor or may be blocking the "eye" ( the timing belt runs right over top of the sensor at the crankshaft). Or it could be one of many other things: bad ecu, bad ignition coils, camshaft position sensor, etc, etc.

Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the connector from the sensor.
  3. Remove the retaining bolts.
  4. Remove the sensor from its mounting.
To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
  2. Clearance between the sensor and the sensor wheel should be 0.020–0.059 inch.
Crankshaft Position Sensor The crankshaft position sensor is located at the front of the engine near the timing belt.

I have no spark on my 2001 4 cyl hyundai santa fe,i have


There is a very good chance the Crankshaft Position Sensor needs replaced. The CKP is what I replace the most for no spark on the 2.4 engine. It is behind the timing belt cover mounted above the crankshaft sprocket. Sometimes they just fail because the sensor was a bad part, other times teeth shear off of the timing belt and get in the wrong place and break the sensor.
