Question about Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

Used to get error code p0341 (crankshaft position sensor) until i removed the sensor wire and dried everything off and replaced it. Now the error code does not come back on. A mechanic said that its the cps for why its not starting in the morning.. If it isnt giving the code then why would he believe it is the cps?

CPS is essential for strarting, in fact the very first seconds of start - it is the only working sensor.

I own a 1998 Chevy Lumina, took it to Advance Auto. I know what one code is what does code P0341 mean and how can it be fixed?

Hi, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

P0341 is a code for Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit. The first thing you need to do sense its a circuit code, is to change the Camshaft Position Sensor. I don't know what engine you have, but if its the 3.4 engine the sensor will be directly under the Power Steering Pump. Remove the pump and replace the sensor, clear the codes and hopefully the sensor does the fix. If not it could be in the wiring or engine controller. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website and give me a thumbs up.

I have a po340 a po341 an a po016 code on a 2006 dodge caravan want start

Hi !
P0340 = This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit.
P0341 = Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
P0016 = Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation (Bank 1 Sensor A)

The common point of these errors is the camshaft sensor, so I'm afraid you need to visit a service.

I just replaced my accessory belts on my 98 subaru legacy outback the car drove fine no other problems at time of replacement that i could tell...about a week and a half later started car it sounded funny...

Sounds like changing the belt had nothing to do with the problem unless something was disconnected or damaged. Maybe you already know all the problem codes, but if not here is a list of them. Also, when you make a reapair on one of the codes you have to reset the codes. They stay in memory until you rested them. So if you reset the 336 and 341 codes my disappear. Reseting the codes doesn't have anything to do with not starting. Make sure nothing was accidentaly disconnected or damaged. The throttle sensor is on the throttle which is in the housing that the air cleaner connectes with. I'm unsure where the Knock sensor is located. The catalyst sensor is probably one of the oxygen sensors in the exhaust pipes, the farthest away from the engine. Your discription of how the care died sounds to me like the throttle sensor.
The problem you have withour having someone check all these item with a system scanner, is you don't know which is defective or if they all are. When you purchase any of these sensors, they are expensive and they are not returnable once you open the packaging. If it not a connection or broken item that is ovbious, I recommend you have a quilified shop check the problem. Guessing can cost a lot for no reason.

P0122 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch "A" Circuit Low Input
P0325 Knock Sensor #1 - Circuit Malfunction (Bank #1 or Single Sensor)
P0336 Crankshaft Position Sensor "A" Circuit Range/Performance
P0341 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank #1)

Good luck

Thanks for using FixYa.

Oldsmobile Silhouette 1998 Error code: P0341 Engine light on... Error code P0341 on auto scanner tool suggests "Camshaft Sensors" Does this vehicle have 2 x camshaft sensors? Locations for...

DTC P0341 will set if Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor pulses are not in proper ratio to 24X and 3X Crankshaft Position (CKP) pulses.

Conditions required to set this DTC are:

> Engine running and PCM is receiving valid 3X reference pulses
> CMP reference pulse signal is not detected on every engine cycle
> Condition is present for at least 30 seconds

The first thing that should be done is visual inspection of the wiring harnesses to the sensors and the secondary ignition cables and coil packs. Please note that misrouted spark plug cables an/or cracked and arcing ignition coils can cause interference with the CMP and CKP circuits. Inspect to be certain that the ignition cables are correctly routed and fastened in their original holders (or equivalent). Also check for deteriorated wire coverings (wire loom) leading to the CMP, 3X , and 24X sensors. If there are problems found, repair as necessary and retest vehicle.
If there are no problems as listed above, the next step is to determine if this is a "Current" (hard-fault) or an "history" (intermittent fault).

If your scanner has the capability of outputting computer data, check the codes under "current codes" or "failed this ignition". If the code is there, then the problem is occurring "RIGHT NOW"! This can make the problem much easier to find. (We'll get to that later) If the code is only in "continuous memory" Then the problem is intermittent. For intermittent faults, it would be best to return to the top of this post and re-check everything - also pull and tug on wires and harnesses to see if you can get the code to set.

If your scanner does not have this capability (outputs generic OBD codes only) Then the easiest way to determine if it is a hard fault is to clear the codes, then start the engine and run it for about 2 minutes and check codes again. If the code set after 2 minutes, then it can be considered a hard fault. Let me know if the problem is a hard fault and we'll walk through checking the circuits. Again, for intermittent faults, try wiggle-testing and checking components over - see if you can get the code to set. Check codes between everything you pull on or wiggle so you can determine which part of the system has the problem. (If you wiggle and pull EVERYTHING before rechecking codes and the code sets, you have not eliminated ANYTHING.)

Please also refer to the picture to help with understanding the components involved.
