I have a 2001 BMW 740il. Error code per Autozone is P0343. Can you tell what that is and how to fix it. Thanks IM

P0343 - Camshaft Position Sensor 'A' Circuit High InputI'm surprised Autozone didn't give you a printout of the possible causes or tell you what they were. These are possible causes but it could also be the wiring in the system too.

- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
- Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty starter motor
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery

Camshaft position sensor - Before you launch into too much make sure your system is getting good voltage - clean battery terminals, check battery and alternator is working as it should. Then look at replacing the sensor.

  • There are two Camshaft position sensors. The one this is for is the one by the oil dipstick on the LH side of the engine. If you replaced the other you need to replace this one as well. Both are recommended, in other words when changing one it is recommended to change the other as well.

Check engine light is on. Code is related to camshaft position sensor. Where is the sensor located on a 1999 BMW 323is?

This is a normal problem and you need to replace it asap. The camshaft position determines when top dead center compression of the #1 cylinder occurs and the convertsit into a pulse signal that is sent to the pcm , then the pcm uses it to determine the correct injection sequence.
