P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction

This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it. Take it somewhere to get it checked out to see which of the above it is.

2003 dodge caravan P0700 code the van will stop working after driving for several minutes like 30 min


Code 700 is a generic code that means there is a problem with the transmission or the control module. Nothing to do with the running of the engine.
The fuel pump could fail without setting a code.

My 1996 Dodge Caravan starts well but shuts down when shifted to drive or reverse. I have to try several times till it moves. Once it moves it no longer shuts down. Why?


If it feels like the transmission or engine locks up, it could be something in the trans or the torque converter.
It could be something electrical but it should do it every time you shift it if it is.

No not at all. The problem may be with the anti-theft system. Sometimes in older cars, especially Dodges', the theft system starts to act up even though you put the key in the ignition. You may want to have it checked out at the dealership, shouldn't cost that much just to have it looked at.

Check MAP sensor. If PCM gets wrong data from MAP sensor it should offset ignition timing and/or make fuel mixture too lean or too rich.

I had the same issue with my dodge caravan and after several attempts by the dealer to fix it, it turned out to be a broken wire. They replaced the relay and it would work for a while and then go blank again. Have the wires checked thoroughly.
