Question about Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

My van has been loosing power and shutting down. The code say cam/crank sensor. The crank sensor was changed recently but the cam sensor was never changed. to keep the vehicle running I periodically disconnected the battery terminals and this seemed to reset everything for a few days. Today i changed the cam sensor now it will not start at all.

2001 Grand Caravan 3.8 code says camshaft or crankshaft sensor how to tell which one it is van stumbles and cuts out from time to time and at low RPM occasionally stalls out


Crank and cam has the same power and ground wires tied together. The signal return are separate wires to the PCM. Guessing, I would say you have a bad/ broken wire at the crank sensor. The wires tend to break at the plugs. When you loose the cam sensor, the PCM goes into default mode. It will still fire the injectors. You just have lower gas mileage. When the crank sensor dies or can't be read. The engine will not start. No fire to the coil/s or plugs.

Vauxhall vectra 2006 cam sensor


I have had this before it is best to change the cam and crank sensors as a pair. as a week sensor will affect the other sensor.and give a false code. as these work together. it is best to change both at the same time. i changed the crank on mine after the cam and it sorted it out. crank sensor is located near to the thermostat and under the exhaust manifold. make sure you tuck the wire away from the exhaust manifold . other end of the wire is fitted to the under neath of the injector cover and is cliped in place very easy to replace

Dodge Grand Caravan 2005 P0016 code


Im assuming it is an engine that uses a timing belt. It sounds like the belt has jumped 1 tooth. if it only jumped 1 tooth than the computer will compesate the timing so it is possible the sensors will say they are ok. If it is a motor that uses a chain than it problaly needs a new gear/chain set.

2000 dodge van 5.2 auto shutdown relay tunes van off as i am driv


the auto shut down relay is not like a fuse that can shut the engine off the name it has actually has not much to do with its function.. the relay is controlled by the computer .. its main function is to stop run-on and turns off o2 heaters power to coil and injectors if you had the key in the run position and engine not running your battery would dies faster than a drive in movie.. but anyway if your stalling and think its the relay failing just swap it with another one that looks the same from the PDC.. what you may have is a bad fuel pump or even a crank sensor have you had it scanned for codes? sometimes but not always you may have a code for lean upstream o2 if the pump is failing but not always.. and for the crank sensor you may have a crank shaft position sensor performance or cam/crank sensor code ..
