The cam sensor is supplied a reference voltage by the engine computer and the cam sensor should generate a signal back to the engine computer above 50 rpm of the engine cranking. The problem could be a faulty purchased cam sensor (yes this happens sometimes although rare) fwiring connector problem at cam sensor or faulty engine computer.

Error code 340 & 457


  • P0340 - Camshaft position sensor circuit malfunction.
  • P0457 - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (fuel filler cap loose/off)

    There is a bulletin #0398 posted on 05/12/2003 for P0457 - Malfunction indicator lamp (mil) illumination with diagnostic trouble codes p0442, p0455, p0456, p0457, p1442 or check fuel cap lamp illuminated with diagnostic trouble code p0457.

I'd suggest checking with your local dealer, as it may be a fix that is covered by the dealer.

My 2002 pt cruiser died while I was driving first the oil light came on then it just died! I just had the oil changed 3 days prior to it dying some of the codes I received were 0340 1684 1685...


P0340 is cam position sensor. P1685 is for the key(has a chip in it) P1684 is battery has been disconnected. If the engine will still crank then codes P1684 & P1685 are probably old codes. So if the car will still crank, lets forget about those codes and focus on P0340 A bad cam position sensor will cause the engine to die and not allow it to start back up. Replace the cam position sensor and clear the code and the car should start up.

2005 dodge stratus SXT 2.4l DOHC died in traffic and won't start


Did you check your camshaft position sensor circuits to see if they were working correctly or test the sensor itself before going out and replacing the sensor?....Didn't think so....

Lesson learned here? Diagnostic Test Codes (DTCs) DO NOT tell you what parts to replace. They only tell you which systems or circuits in your vehicle are not working as they should be. Then it is up to the person diagnosing the car to determine what is actually CAUSING the system or circuit to malfunction......Of coarse, this requires that you must first understand how the system is supposed to work...

Anyway, with some proper diagnosis, I think you will probably find that your cam sensor code (P0340) is being caused by a broken timing belt.
(If the cam does not turn, the cam sensor does not produce a signal, and the computer has a problem with that).

NISSAN MURANO 2004 I receive an error on my screen Check Engine & after checking at the garage the problem was P0340 what would it be ?? & how to fix ?? when running on the highway the engine...


the P0340 is a camshaft sensor code, the sensor is located in the front (passengers ) side of the engine, there should be two sensor's one for each camshaft, (front of each head) defective cam sensor's can cause the the problems of stalling and hard starting. I am a Nissan certified tech and replaced a good number of cam sensors in the past, they are quit easy to replace, they are attached by one ten millimeter headed bolt (per sensor) remove the bolt then work the sensor clockwise and counter clockwise while pulling out, there is a o ring seal on the sensor and when installing the new one lightly lube o ring before installing, then install sensor and be sure it fully seated against the mounting surface before installing the bolt or you will break the mounting ear of your new sensor. thanks for using fixya

I have a 2001 Dodge Intrepid and it keeps dying


Trouble code P0340 means: Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit (Bank 1 or single sensor). Recheck the sensor's gap. Remove the old paper spacer from the sensor and replace it with a new one or if you have a new sensor, make sure you have installed a new paper spacer installed before installing the new sensor. Good luck and it's common for after market cam/crank sensor to be more temperamental then the OEM.

Error code P0340


lionelloopho: P0340 is a Cylinder signal not getting to the ECM, momentarily while the engine is being cranked.
According to Nissan's diagnostic chart, the recommend checking the following: Harness connectors for the cam positioning sensor,
The sensor it self, The starter, for excessive draw.
The battery for weakness.
Nissan did have a service bulletin out on hard cranking problems.
The symptoms include difficult starting ans spark knock (very sharp rattling sound)
The bulletin reference number is: NTB95-090 You can check with Nissan because the solution warrants the replacement of the ECM.
You may have to tell a little white lie and tell them you have been living with the problem for quite a while because no one has been able to solve the problem and you have just now heard of this bulletin.
Good Luck and let me know how you make out, I'm pretty sure this is the solution.
