Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora

2 Answers

I'm having the same P0335 problem as those posted. It points to the CKP sensor. But some say that a new CKP will simply learn itself. Others say it must learn using a special tool. Which is correct?

Replaced 2 crankshaft position sensors on a 01 PT and never taught it and works fine.Would think that what it is sensing is located in certin spots so it will only pick up when it is required.Don't know what there would be to teach.

The P0335 code refers to the electrical circuit, so even though the sensor is replaced there may be a wiring problem, see P0335.

What can cause a p0335 code to appear on my 2003 honda odyssey

code p 0335 refers to crankshaft position (CKP) sensor---circuit malfunction=== causes --wiring--CKP sensor ---ECM
at this point because you were in the area doing repairs to the power steering pump , it is possible that you have disconnected the wires to the CKP
check that or replace the CKP

I have replaced two two camshaft sensors on my 2007 Saturn outlook Xr for code 336 and no results please help

Who replaced the sensor ? You or a repair shop ? The DTC P0336 does not say to replace a sensor . You do not have access to the diagnostic trouble code diagnostic's . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop .
DTC P0336: Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor Performance
CKP Sensor Signal Circuit

• The ECM detects that the engine is running, but receives less than 51 or more than 65 CKP sensor pulses each engine revolution for 8 of 10 engine revolutions.
• The ECM detects that the engine is running, but more than 19 resyncs occur within 25 seconds.
• The ECM detects that the engine has been running, but the crankshaft does not sync for 0.4 second.

I have a 2003 dodge ram with a 4.7. I am getting code p0335 crankshaft position sensor A.

code p0335 refers to crankshaft position (CKP) sensor --circuit malfunction====causes ---wiring---ckp sensor ---ecm
you have checked the wires from ecm connection to sensor connection and eliminated the wires and connections so that only leaves a problem ECM
try substituting the ECM with a known good unit and see it the code is eliminated

Replaced camshaft and crankshaft position sensors in my 2005 altima also the o2 seneor car still will not run. error code 335 What else could be the problem?

DTC P0335 - Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction
The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) measures crankshaft location and relays this information to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Depending on the vehicle, the PCM uses this crankshaft position information to time the spark properly or on some systems it is only for misfire detection and does not control spark timing. The CKP sensor is stationary and works in harmony with a reluctor ring (or toothed ring) that is attached to the crankshaft. As this reluctor ring passes in front of the CKP sensor, the magnetic field created by the CKP sensor is interrupted and this creates a square wave voltage signal that the PCM interprets as crankshaft position. If the PCM detects that there are no crankshaft pulses or if it sees a problem with the pulses on the output circuit, P0335 will set.

A P0335 "check engine light" code could be caused by:
Damaged CKP sensor connector
Damaged reluctor ring (missing teeth or not turning due to sheared-off keyway)
Sensor output open
Sensor output shorted to ground
Sensor output shorted to voltage
Failed crank sensor
Broken timing belt
Failed PCM

If you need additional details about test and solutions, just contact us in the Code Link.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer. Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

What are error codes P0372, and P0335

Hi, these codes relate to the crankshaft position sensor. Recommend you check the sensor to make sure it is tight and the connector is fully on. If it looks in order, consider replacing the sensor. If you reply with your model and year, I will see if I can provide additional information.

P0335 Crankshaft position (CKP) sensor - circuit malfunction
Possible causes: Wiring, CKP sensor, ECM

P0372 Timing reference, high resolution signal A - too few pulses
Possible causes: Wiring, CKP/RPM/CMP sensor, ECM

How do i change the crank positioning sensor on a 8.1 liter chevy silvarado?

Crankshaft Position Sensor: Service and Repair
Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor Replacement
IMPORTANT: Care must be taken when removing the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor. Use penetrating oil and allow to soak around the CKP
sensor before removing the sensor. Twist the sensor to break the O-ring seals loose. When removing the sensor, pull the sensor straight out of the
engine block at the same angle the sensor was installed. Failure to be careful may result in sensor damage.
1. Raise the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle.
2. Disconnect the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor harness connector at the CKP sensor.
3. Remove the fuel line bracket and retaining bolt.
4. Use penetrating oil and allow to soak around the CKP sensor before removing the sensor.
5. Remove the CKP sensor retaining bolt.
6. Prior to removal of the CKP sensor, rotate the sensor back and forth.
7. Remove the CKP sensor at the same angle at which the CKP sensor was installed.
IMPORTANT: Inspect the CKP sensor O-ring for wear or damage. If a problem is found, replace the O-ring. Lubricate the new O-ring with engine
oil before installing.
1. Install the CKP sensor at the same angle at which the CKP sensor was removed.
NOTE: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
2. Install the CKP sensor retaining bolt.
Tighten the bolt to 12 N.m (106 lb in).
3. Connect the CKP sensor harness connector.
4. Install the fuel line bracket and retaining bolt.
5. Lower the vehicle.
6. Perform the CKP System Variation Learn Procedure. See: Testing and Inspection/Programming and Relearning


Crankshaft Position Sensor: Service and Repair
CKP System Variation Learn Procedure
IMPORTANT: For additional diagnostic information, refer to DTC P1336.
1. Install a scan tool.
2. With a scan tool, monitor the powertrain control module for DTCs. If other DTCs are set, except DTC P1336, refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code
(DTC) List for the applicable DTC that set.
3. Close the vehicle's hood.
4. With a scan tool, select the crankshaft position variation learn procedure.
5. Observe the fuel cut-off for the engine that you are performing the learn procedure on.
6. The scan tool instructs you to perform the following:
^ Apply the vehicles parking brake.
^ Block the drive wheels.
^ Cycle the ignition from OFF to ON.
^ Apply and hold the brake pedal.
^ Start and idle the engine.
^ Turn OFF the A/C.
^ Place the vehicle's transmission in Park (A/T) or Neutral (M/T).
^ The scan tool monitors certain component signals to determine if all the conditions are met to continue with the procedure. The scan tool only
displays the condition that inhibits the procedure. The scan tool monitors the following components:
- Crankshaft position (CKP) sensors activity - If there is a CKP sensor condition, refer to DTC P0335 or DTC P0336.
- Camshaft position (CMP) sensor activity- If there is a CMP sensor condition, refer to DTC P0341, DTC P0342 or DTC P0343.
- Engine coolant temperature (ECT) - If the engine coolant temperature is not warm enough, idle the engine until the engine coolant
temperature reaches the correct temperature.
7. With the scan tool, enable the crankshaft position system variation learn procedure.
IMPORTANT: While the learn procedure is in progress, release the throttle immediately when the engine starts to decelerate. The engine control is
returned to the operator and the engine responds to throttle position after the learn procedure is complete.
8. Slowly increase the engine speed to the RPM that you observed.
9. Immediately release the throttle when fuel cut-off is reached.
10. The scan tool displays Learn Status: Learned this ignition. If the scan tool does NOT display this message and no additional DTCs set, refer to
Symptoms - Engine Mechanical. If a DTC set, refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List for the applicable DTC that set.
11. Turn OFF the ignition for 30 seconds after the learn procedure is completed successfully.
