This code could mean:

  • the camshaft position sensor could be defective,
  • the camshaft synchronizer (the part that took the place of the distributor on DIS engines) has failed,
  • if you have recently had the camshaft synchronizer replaced it could be out of time.

P1309 code is "Misfire Detection Monitor not enabled"

This code is indicating most likely a problem with the camshaft position sensor or a incorrectly installed camshaft position sensor. there are different procedures with diagnosing depending on if you have a hall effect CMP or a variable reluctance CMP.

Components that can cause this code:
- Camshaft position sensor
- Powertrain control module
- ECT, MAF, and CKP sensors

Possible cause:
Verify the CMP is installed correctly and not out of synchronization.

Hope helps.

P1309 ignition misfire


This should be a Ford engine - so according to the RangerStation website, the code is for the cam position synchronizer sensor is not installed correctly or not working. The sensor is telling the computer the cam timing is off.
You may need a book or internet search to test it and repair it.

Engine code p1309 P/S advice on repair


The definition of this code is:
P1309 Engine Misfire Detection Monitor not enabled

It's a problem with the detection circuitry, not a detection of a engine misfire condition. I found this quickly on the net:
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1309 indicates Misfire Detection Monitor is not enabled.

Breakout box installed, PCM disconnected. Connect digital multimeter between PCM test pin 85 and test pins 51 or 103. Bump engine in short burst with the starter without starting engine for at least 10 engine revolutions. Answer this question: Does digital multimeter reading switch between low (less than 2.0 volts DC) and high (greater than 8.0 volts DC)?

If Yes, Verify correct installation by referring to the Powertrain/Engine Group in the Workshop Manual. If the CMP is installed properly, REPLACE PCM. RESTORE vehicle. RERUN Quick Test.

If no, REPLACE CMP sensor. RESTORE vehicle. COMPLETE Misfire Monitor Repair Verification Drive Cycle. RERUN Quick Test.

The CMP sensor is the Camshaft Position Sensor.

My car have problen code P1309 plz help me


HI, The P1309 can be set due to a couple of problems the common being the CPS camshaft position sensor failed. There are other components that can cause this code to set including the ECT engine coolant temp, MAF mass air flow, CKP crank shaft position.There are no simple test that can be done at home but this code is usualy quick to diagnose for a good tech.
