Question about 2004 Dodge SRT-4

2004 Dodge SRT-4 keeps coding out

Can't get 2004 Dodge SRT-4 to start, everytime it gives me the code for the camshaft position sensor malfunction. This sensor has been replaced twice, plus the crankshaft sensor. All electrical connections have also been cleaned with an electrical cleaning spray. What else could possibly be making it code everytime and not start?

What code number? It could have a wiring short or open to the PCM or to ground. Cam could be out of time, check the timing belt.

I keep getting a code P0340.Chrysler has reprogrammed the PCM for a long start issue.I cant seem to get anywhere with it.


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.

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


Hope helps.

Code reads P0340 Camshaft position Sensor circuit


That makes the computor think the timing is off. Replace the sensor and see if that does it. You will then have to have the code cleared (erased) or the light will come back on/stay on.

Diagnostic code P 340 and P 341 Camshaft Position Sensor Malfunction for a Dodge Ram Diesel 2500. What does it mean?


The Camshaft Position Sensor tells the PCM (computer) the position of the Camshaft Position. This Sensor sychronized along with several other Sensors including the Crankshaft Position Sensor the firing of the electronics to the spark plugs of each cylinder.
It is not difficult to replace and relatively inexpensive.
1. Disconnect the Negative side of the Battery,
2. Locate the Sensor and unplug.
3. Remove the Position Sensor retaining bolt.
4. Pull out the Sensor.
Replacement is reverse of above order.
Hint: use fresh engine oil on the end/sides of the Sensor especially around the rubber o-ring(s) to ease pushing the Sensor into proper position.
