Check the wiring thoroughly going to the sensor, make sure the ground wires at the rear of the block are clean and tight.

My pt cruiser has code 1391. i changed cam sensor crank sensor wires plugs and coil still getting 1391 code and from 0 mph to 20 mph car skips and revs up any ideas?


The cam and crank sensors have the same power wire. Go after that one. They also have the same ground, but other sensors connect to it also. So it's not the ground. And they have separate return signal wires. Not them either.

My car won't start codes 1684,0108,1598,1391.


,1391 is the camshaft position sensor if you have a 2.5 or 3.0 engine
this is a distributor code ..just change the distributor and put new plugs and wires on the car also ( you must have over 120k on the engine )
you can get it at any auto parts store its about $200 i did see them on e-bay and bought 1 and it only lasted about 9 mo.
no savings because of only 90 day return .
all part stores give a life time return . 2x the work and I was out $125.
be smart you get what you pay for and the job takes about 3 hours if your a good parts changer. now you will have to reset all old codes with a obd tester checker. if you do not have one now get that on e-bay ( the cheapest one will work ) $ 35.

Keep getting code p1391


You may need a shop manual for this one.
Code 1391 means the crank sensor or cam sensor signal is not steady or dead at times.
The distributor acts as the cam sensor, so it could be that or the crank sensor, or a problem with the wiring harness.

I have replaced my fuel pump, fuel relay and fuel filter. Im not getting power to fuel pump. What should I do next?


If the Cirrus is a 2.5L change the Crank Sensor. The Haynes manual has a good step by step. This sensor will cause a no start. The cam sensor, coil, are built into distributor, and can not be replaced.Less you buy a recon. or new unit.Other problem would be the engine computer.

Coad 1391


The code 1391 is : Intermittent loss of CMP or CKP

You are losing either the cam or crank sensor intermittently. Test and replace as needed. Check plug ends first.

Engine keeps missing. unknown codes


Code 1682 indicates low battery voltage. This could be a problematic alternator, which would likely cause misfiring. Autozone should be able to check this for you for free.

Code 1391 indicates the computer can not see the crank or cam sensor signal. This would likely be a result of the misfires.

Code 0320 indicates the crankshaft position sensor reference signal could not be found while the engine is cranking.

All of these issues point to either a cam/crank sensor malfunction or a charging system problem, either or both of which could cause the misfiring.
