You have to remove the air cleaner hose to the throttle body to access the sensor. I hope it helps. You will see it, its on end of engine. Remove connector then the bolts holding it on. God-Bless! Hope this helps you. The dodge 2.0 is known for bad camshaft sensors, certain years.

SOURCE: engine service light / 4 codes read description below

P1744 is probably the TC going on the way out. :(

P 340 is probably the sensor itself. Don't get the Dorman one if it is the OHV motor.

P 401 is probably a bad DPF EGR sensor.

SOURCE: I got a camshaft position sensor malfunction code P0340.

it sounds like you have bigger problems if your car does not crank(turn over) then your timing belt could have broken and the one piston could be hitting a valve causing it to be locked up.normally when any sensor is bad car engine still cranks it just doesn't 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.

P0340 is for camshaft position sensor circuit malfunction so the problem can be in you hav already changed sensor, then you need to check wiring from sensor to ecu and if the wires are ok than check the ecu! It can be either of them cousing the problem.

I have a diagnostic code 340 and 320 on a 1997 Jeep Cherokee. What might the problem be?


DTC P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
  • Loss of engine power
Causes:A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
  • a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
  • the camshaft position sensor may have failed
  • the PCM may have failed
  • there exists an open circuit
  • the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

Possible Solutions: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

DTC P0320 also have with this wrong.

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.

Code p0340 need location on 2004 sebring 2.7 v6



P0340 OBD-II Trouble Code
Technical Description
Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction


What does that mean? 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.

Also, the cams/crank are out of alignment, thats why you are getting a cam position code (P0340). For more details about your model, you can visit autozone.com (free register)
