The sensor comes apart. Separate the two pieces and you'll find the battery. Change it out for a new 3.6 Volt battery and voila!

I need to replace crank shaft timing sensor

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connector at the sensor.
  3. Using a 28mm socket and pull handle, rotate the harmonic balancer until any window in the interrupter is aligned with the crank sensor.
  4. Loosen the pinch bolt on the sensor pedestal until the sensor is free to slide.
  5. Remove the pedestal to the engine mounting bolts.
  6. While manipulating the sensor within the pedestal, carefully remove the sensor and pedestal as a unit. To install:
  7. Loosen the pinch bolt on the new sensor pedestal until the sensor is free to slide.
  8. Verify that the window in the interrupter is still in the correct place.
  9. Install the sensor and pedestal as a unit while making sure that the interrupter ring is aligned within the proper slot.
  10. Install the pedestal and tighten the engine mounting bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the sensor harness connection to the sensor. Fig. 1: Unsecure the harness, then unfasten the bolt to remove the CKP sensor 86815102.gif

  3. Unsecure the sensor block bolt.
  4. Remove the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor from the vehicle. Inspect the O-ring for cracks and replace if needed. To install:
  5. Install the new O-ring if needed and lubricate with engine oil.
  6. Install the sensor into the hole in the block.
  7. Install the mounting screw and tighten to 71-88 inch lbs. (8-10 Nm).
  8. Attach the sensor harness connector, then connect the negative battery cable.
Dual Crank Sensor Sections 3 and 4 of this manual also cover testing, removal and installation, and adjustment of many computer controlled components.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the belt(s) from the crankshaft pulley.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  4. Remove the right front wheel and inner fender access cover.
  5. Remove the crankshaft harmonic balancer retaining bolt, then remove the harmonic balancer.
  6. Disconnect the sensor electrical connector.
  7. Remove the sensor and pedestal from the engine block, then separate the sensor from the pedestal. To install:
  8. Loosely install the crankshaft sensor to the pedestal.
  9. Using tool J-37089 or equivalent, position the sensor with the pedestal attached, on the crankshaft.
  10. Install the pedestal-to-block retaining bolts. Tighten to 14-28 ft. lbs. (20-40 Nm).
  11. Tighten the pedestal pinch bolt 30-35 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
  12. Remove tool J-37089 or equivalent.
  13. Place tool J-37089 or equivalent, on the harmonic balancer and turn. If any vane of the harmonic balancer touches the tool, replace the balancer assembly. NOTE: A clearance of 0.025 in. (0.635mm) is required on either side of the interrupter ring. Be certain to obtain the correct clearance. Failure to do so will damage the sensor. A misadjusted sensor of bent interrupter ring could cause rubbing of the sensor, resulting in potential driveability problems, such as rough idle, poor performance, or a no-start condition.
  14. Install the balancer on the crankshaft. Install the balancer retaining bolt. Tighten the retaining bolt to 200-239 ft. lbs. (270-325 Nm).

Hi guys! Got a question regarding apple chip on nike shoes. Is the sensor battery replaceable? How long does it last?

No, the sensor's battery is not replaceable or rechargeable. The sensor's battery has a life of over 1000 active hours. The sensor sends a low battery signal when there is around 2 weeks of life remaining (based on usage pattern), indicating that the sensor needs to be replaced. Battery life will vary considerably based on use and other factors.

Most Nike + iPod runners and walkers can just drop the sensor in their Nike+ shoes and forget about it. When inactive, the sensor enters stand-by mode to save battery life.

2004 Saab 9-3 Window reset

I had the problem of the drivers window rolling back down. This was fixed by removing the electrical connector located behind the door hinge. It looks like an oblong block. You have to prise the top ribbed part right up then pull the block out. Leave out for about 1 minute. Replace it

Max AC not working, driver window intermittent, normal AC erratic

Sounds like your having problems with a couple of relays.When you say that battery leaked do you mean out the top of the battery as that sounds like the alternator is over charging the battery and maybe the root cause of your electrical problems.

Sticky windows

Have taken car into a dealer and have been advised that if battery has gone flat, the sensors will need resetting, to do this, disconnect freshly charged or replaced battery for two to three minutes, reconnect, turn key to position two and operate window. Hold button down and wait for click (window open), close window and hold button in close position until you hear the click. This should reset the sensors to open and close positions. Juddering maybe caused by build up of grime in slider, squirt some silicone based lubricant into window slider/guide, this should help. If none of this helps, it could mean that the motors need replacing.

Simon 3: A remote window sensor downstairs creates a constant Low Battery beep/message.

it should be a 6 volt, 1.3 amp hour battery. you can get them at batteries plus. best bet is to take the old one with you to the store to ensure that it fits.
