SOURCE: DTC - PO340, PO325

My Nissan micro 2004 model just stopped in the middle of the road one day then the engine management light came on, anyway took it to my local garage TWK Thomas who said it was a cam shaft sensor problem. OK so sensor was put on, engine management light went off for two days only. So went back to the garage they said that another sensor should be fitted on the opposite side. And then the problem should be rectified, but i had given the £160 for this problem to be fixed the first time. I decided it was time to take it to another garage Nis Tec they put it on the computer and a code po340 came up would this mean another sensor or the cam chain has stretched please help. ...claire

SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Sonata starts when cold and dies after warming up.

Wiring problem or the ECU (engine control unit) is defective. Try this, disconnect the battery cables from the battery and short/touch them together for 30 seconds (do not do this if connected to the battery). Then, reconnect the cables to the battery posts & see if that fixes it. If it doesn't, then there is a wiring problem associated with the cam pos snsr or the ECU has gone bad.

SOURCE: code reads P0340 Camshaft position Sensor circuit

That makes the computor think the timing is off. Replace the sensor and see if that does it. You will then have to have the code cleared (erased) or the light will come back on/stay on.

SOURCE: mk4 golf 18t code po340 camshaft sensor a circuit

The system will erase the fault code when the system senses that a component is functioning within three starting cycles. Even if you replaced the cam sensor three times it will store the same code if the wire harness or connector has is not supplying data from the magnetic pickup to the ECU. Until you have isolated why it doesn't read the sensor you'll be stuck with a no start situation.

I have a po340 a po341 an a po016 code on a 2006 dodge caravan want start


Hi !
P0340 = This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit.
P0341 = Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
P0016 = Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation (Bank 1 Sensor A)

The common point of these errors is the camshaft sensor, so I'm afraid you need to visit a service.

Code PO340 bad camshaft sensor. I replaced the sensor and i the car still wont start. I still get the same code and the car will not start.


Trevor: Alittle known fact is that most Chrysler cars do not need a full OBD code reader! By performing the "Key-Dance" you can show the codes on the odometer without any reader! Look for info on how to read the codes with the ignition key.

On your problem, you need to check the wiring and connectors, and also check the proper cams and belt timing, as it is difficult but sometimes an out of timing (one tooth only) misalignment can make the car not to start.

After having my 06 dodge stratus checked out. 6 codes showed up. I don't want to just start throwing parts on without knowing the real reason for the problem. The car drives fine and then just...


Let's start with the codes.

Po129 refers to barosensor

Po344 is a code for the camshaft position sensor

Po339 crankshaft position sensor

Po340 camshaft position circuit malfunction

Po335 crankshaft POS sensor malfunction

Po122 throttle pedal position

Item 2,3,4,5 relate to each other that s camshaft and crankshaft position sensors. Since both already show a malfunction code, it would be advisable to change.

Sometimes other codes show up because there is a relation but not that the item is bad.

What does this mean on my 2005 dodge magnum warning light "esp bass" and check engine light


the esp stands for electronic stability program,you will need to have the computer scanned for codes, these codes will help in the repair,you may have a bad speed sensor or the check engine light may have shut down the esp,when the engine detects a problem it shuts down the esp because it feels that the esp cant operate correctly when the engine is not running correctly,so the first thing is to scan for the codes, hope this helps, good luck,

Code PO340


P0340 is a Crankshaft Position Sensor error. It determines firing order and is most likely the cause of your problem. It's mounted near the oil filter on the engine block. Below is a picture of how it appears in your car. Best of luck.

For what sensor is the code po340 on a dodge neon 04 and how i change.


Hi,
This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.

With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:

  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required
Thanks.
