Code No. P0340: Camshaft Position Sensor System










OPERATION



  • Power is supplied to the camshaft position sensor (terminal No. 1) from the engine-ECU (terminal No. 9) and is earthed to the engine-ECU (terminal No. 30) from the camshaft position sensor (terminal No. 2).
  • A power voltage of 5 V is applied to the camshaft position sensor output terminal (terminal No. 3) from the engine-ECU (terminal No. 14).

FUNCTION



  • The camshaft position sensor detects the top dead center on the compression stroke of the No. 1 cylinder and inputs a pulse signal to the engine-ECU.

TROUBLE JUDGMENT


Check Condition
  • Engine speed is higher than 50 r/min.
Judgment Criterion
  • Normal signal pattern has not been input for cylinder identification from the crankshaft position sensor signal and camshaft position sensor signal for 2 seconds.
Check Condition
  • Engine speed is higher than 500 r/min.
Judgment Criterion
  • Camshaft position sensor output voltage has not changed (no pulse signal is input) for 2 seconds.

PROBABLE CAUSES



  • Failed camshaft position sensor
  • Open/short circuit or harness damage in camshaft position sensor circuit or loose connector contact
  • Failed engine-ECU
