    We made a shortcut from the computer to the cam sensor ( by ta diagram) and it did not work. One problem was - we could not find a right yellow wire from the computer. Other problem could be that we have burned also another circut .

The wires you are using may not be rated for 12 volts and a certain amount of amps try using beefier wires meant for 12 volt or above electrical sources.

    what you may want to do is go to dodge or another trusted repair center and have them do an inspection i think dodge charges 85 dollars and if you have them do the service they use that money for the service needed, but when the finish with the inspection they should be able to tell you the problem.
    also i have the chrysler service/repair manual for the 1994 dodge intrepid 3.3 liter and the 3.5 liter. if you can email me at the following email address i will be able to send the service pages via scanner to your email but i need to know the engine size and the exact problem you have as well as any hints on what it may be then i will find the exact repair page in the 2000 pages from chrysler and scan it to you. 


    my email is neemafallon@yahoo.com

New starter and battery, and no power on a 2003 Toyota Corolla


I am not familer with this exact car but 2 things to look for, Many of the Jap cars have a main fuses. usually located near the battery, ina small fues box there will be a wire that attaches to the positive batt cable that goes to this little fues box It usually powers the IGN circut which powers the starting circut. .. on Americsan cars they use a fuseable link which is a piece of wire that burns out when a live positive wire is shorted out. in place of burning the whole wiring harness. its easy to see this problem since the wire will be burnet in half..

Being that this happened tells me that you have a short probably at or near the starter.that is blowing the fuse or burning the fuseable link. Look for this short or it will just burn out the fuse again.

The computer says the immobilizer coil is open/short


Did you reset the computer. Usually disconnecting the battery for about 10 minutes should do it. If this does not fix it, you need to recheck your work. Something you did has caused the message. Did you short circut a wire, burn a fuse, forget to reconnect something? The immobilizer probably works by immobilization of the vehicle's coil circut. Thus, causing the computer message to display about the coil issue. Try reset computer of vehicle should work.

Why does my fuse keep blowing


If its the correct size fuse you have a short causing the fuse to blow. if its a fuse to say the a/c compressor, the compressor is pulling over the fuse size and causing it to blow.

Fuel pump not getting power.Replaced fuel relay and pump. computer code was reading cam position sensor. I dont believe that would cause a no power to fuel pump. It is trying to turn and it will turn with...


If it is similar to Quest, the fuel pump runs for 5 seconds when you turn the key to ON. Then, unless the engine is running, the pump shuts off. It runs when the key is in START position though. Can you hear the pump run for 5 seconds when you turn key to ON? Listen carefully for the hum of the pump in the tank.
Normally, the power relay powers up the PCM and it applies power to the fuel pump relay. Then you get power to the pump.
Also, look at owner manual for all fuses that apply to fuel pump system.

I have a diagnostic code 340 and 320 on a 1997 Jeep Cherokee. What might the problem be?


DTC P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
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

DTC P0320 also have with this wrong.

I have a 91 olds Ninety eight regency elite Intermittently dies code 41 comes up cam sensor circut replaced cam sensor still dies could it be the crank sensor? thank you Michael Dale


cam sensor is only half of the cam circuit, the other half of the cam circuit is the magnet on the timing chain. the cam sensor reads from the magnet every time the engine completes a revolution,
what happens is the magnet on the chain will break into smaller piece which makes the sensor harder to read every time the engine make a complete revolution.
most likely you'll need to replace the timing chain to fix this.

OK, you have a code PO341 which means their is a problem with the signal the ECU is receiving from the cam sensor. It does not necessarily mean the sensor is bad. It can be one of these things.
1. Cam sensor wiring routed too close to spark plug wiring (causing interference) 2. Poor wiring connection at cam sensor 3. Poor wiring connection at PCM 4. Bad cam sensor 5. Damaged reluctor wheel You replaced the cam sensor and the problem is still there so we can assume that a defective cam sensor was not the problem. Do this.
1. Check that the wiring isn't routed too close to any secondary ignition components (coil, spark plug wires, etc.) 2. Visually inspect the wiring at the sensor for any burn marks, discoloration indicative of melting or chafing 3. Visually inspect the reluctor wheel through the cam sensor port (if possible) for any missing teeth or any damage 4. If reluctor isn't visible from outside the engine, visual test can only be done by removing cam shaft or intake manifold (depending on engine design)

2002 honda civic stalls, loses power


The Sensor thy are talking about is also called the crank position sensor. It is located behind the timing cover at the crank pulley. if you open the timing covers you can check the timing belt at the same time. check the belt for play and missing teeth. if belt is OK replace the sensor. (follow the wire behind the cover to find it.
