    I have a dodge Intrepid'98, when I purchased it a few months ago I took it in to a emissions station and it was failed as the computer would not communicate with the computer at the station. I took it back to dealer and was told that the computer needed 50 Good starts as they had put in a new battery. Well that was approx. 4,ooo miles ago. The car now is shutting down completely, brakes and steering lock up until I turn the key to the on position after turning it to the off position. Also it would start right away but the other day it shutdown (it was raining that day) twice (unusual) and it would not start for hours. I was blocking an intersection so it had to be towed to my house. The same code comes up in the dash P1684 and then dONE..written exactly like that. Now according to another web site that code means the battery was recently disconnected and it needs 50 starts. I KNOW this car has had 50 GOOD starts, so what is causing all this? I am afraid to drive the darn thing, and it is the only car in the household. Help!!!

P0340
Camshaft position sensor circuit

  • Most likely cause : Camshaft position sensor failed.
-----------------------------------
P1684
means the battery was disconnected(or had been drained to a low voltage) recently.

My 2002 pt cruiser died while I was driving first the oil light came on then it just died! I just had the oil changed 3 days prior to it dying some of the codes I received were 0340 1684 1685...


P0340 is cam position sensor. P1685 is for the key(has a chip in it) P1684 is battery has been disconnected. If the engine will still crank then codes P1684 & P1685 are probably old codes. So if the car will still crank, lets forget about those codes and focus on P0340 A bad cam position sensor will cause the engine to die and not allow it to start back up. Replace the cam position sensor and clear the code and the car should start up.

I have fault codes P1684 & P0340 on my 2002


P1684 The battery has been disconnected within the last 50 starts.

P0340


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.
Symptoms Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
  • Loss of engine power
Causes A 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 Solutions With 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

I got two odometor codes p1684 and p0700 do you know what it means 2002 chysler town and country


P0 700 is a transmission control malfunction and P1684 is a indication that your battery was disconnected within the last fifty states.However what is puzzling is your PO 700 is a generic code your P1684 is a dedicated Chrysler code your cars computer should only store one or the other not both.

Camshaft Position Sensor


P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor "A" Circuit Bank 1 or Single Sensor

P0700 Transmission Control System (MIL Request)

The code P1684 is real easy. The computer is stating that the battery has been disconnected within the last 50 starts.

Hi, a P1684 is "Battery Disconnected Within Last 50 Starts". I wouldn't worry about that too much.

The P0340 is "Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction". I'd definitely look into that code. I found a great article specific to the p0340 code - http://www.obd-codes.com/p0340 - it should give you an idea on what to look for, test, replace, etc. Good luck!
