Crankshaft position Sensor A Circuit Intermittent

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From komodo on Crankshaft position Sensor A Circuit Intermittent

I received a check engine light after a false start with my Jeep. I used an OBD2 tool and found the following trouble codes,

P0300 Random Misfire Detection
P0339 Crankshaft position Sensor A Circuit Intermittent
P0335 Crankshaft position Sensor A Circuit

My gas tank was almost empty and I had not used the car for 2 weeks, I think I got some humidity in the gas tank so I filled it up and added a bottle of fuel injector cleaner, it’s getting better after 2 days of driving around. This has happened last year and it solved the problem. However the crankshaft error codes are new.

When I turn the key fast, the engine cranks for about 4 or 5 seconds then it starts, when I turn the key slowly, it starts right away.

I suspect that the crankshaft is defective or it needs cleaning, is this correct?

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

Probably check out the crank sensor circuits first. If they check good, you may need a scope to see what the crank sensor signal is doing.

The crank sensor is used by the engine computer to determine the position of the crankshaft and the speed of the crank shaft. The sensor is a hall effect sensor that sends a digital signal to the computer.

You have a circuit code and intermittent signal code for the crank sensor, so injector cleaner isn't going to resolve that. The misfire code and the crank sensor codes are probably related. The intermittent crank sensor signal could be making the computer think misfiring is going on.

If your interested in testing a crank sensor and its circuits, you'll need a volt meter, lab scope or graphing multimeter, and wiring diagram.

Here is a video on digital crank sensor testing if your interested.


98 jeep dies, restarts, geeting worse.

Question From weezer1 on 98 jeep dies, restarts, geeting worse.

My 1998 Jeep Grand cherokee, 6 cyl, auto trans, 4wd, 116,000 miles, more so before it gets warmed up good, will occasionally die like you turned the key off, but will usually restart. Is getting worse. Several months ago it started occasionally dying while idling, but now has died while driving. I was a mechanic years ago, but not very familiar with computer controlled cars. In past I have had similar problems with poor electrical connections, and tried wiggling the plug that goes into the computer from the engine. sometimes it will cause a misfire, or dying. Sometimes not. I cleaned the connector, and put a block of wood between the plug and radiator overflow tank to give a tighter fit, and it ran good for one day, then got worse. After the engine gets good and hot, it seldom happens. HELP! Weezer

Sorry, forgot to add this. The OBD II scanner shows no codes.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Hmmm - If wiggling that plug instantly caused an issue it just may be THE issue. Connections all over are vibrating with the car so a weak one can act up in any dang way it wants.

Worked properly for a day when cleaning was done is a strong clue you have the area of the trouble and probably should see what you can do to make it connect better not just a block of wood,

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

Need to monitor crankshaft position sensor signal to see if it drops out before the engine stalls. Failing crankshaft position sensors is a common problem on those, but testing would verify if that is the case.

Why are you using wood on a PCM connector? You have a terminal tension problem? Something broke on the connector?

Response From weezer1

Sorry for the slow return. Had an family emergency out of state I had to attend to. The block of wood was to get a tighter fit at the connection, which worked. the connector didn't have a very tight fit. I tried to crimp the female pin connectors somewhat, but the connectors are very small, and the molded plastic was too hard. So I cleaned the connectors, checked with my son-in-law who is an electrician, put a dab of powdered graphite (an electrical conductor) into the female connectors, and used some dielectric paste. Put it back together, and so far, it is working great. Thanks for the quick responses I was given. I'll report back later to let you know if it is still working. I hope the crank sensor doesn't turn out to be bad. That looks very difficult to get to. Weezer

My '98 Jeep Cherokee Shuts Down While Running help!

Question From Mearcliff on My '98 Jeep Cherokee Shuts Down While Running help!

Hi my '98 Cherokee Classic shuts down after a certain time while running, I replaced the oxygen sensor and the crankshaft position sensor but same thing happened. I plugged in a computer but got no codes, however it said that the catalyst mon was INC and the oxygen sensor mon was INC. Please help me as I really cant find whats wrong!!

Response From Mearcliff

Well I took out out my fuel filter and going to replace it soon but it looked fine to me I blew through it and some stuff came out.

Response From dmac0923

a bad oxygen sensor wouldnt just suddenly shut the jeep down.

i would look more towards the fuel side of the equation.

partially clogged fuel filter.

weak fuel pump.

Response From Sidom

Like Dmac said & 02 isn't going to normally cause a problem like this. Intermittens can be tough but what you 1st have to do if figure out if you are losing spark or fuel. Once you know that it will help narrow down the field and start testing in the right areas. Also when it does die, does it start right back up or do you have to let it sit for a bit?

There are about 7 or 8 monitors than run and they run in a certain order. If certain conditions aren't met a monitor won't run & then downstream monitors also won't run until the upstream monitor runs. Might be connected, might not. Got find the main problem 1st & go from there....

Response From Mearcliff

To Sidom: no i have to let my Jeep sit before it can start up fully!! I hope you know the answer!!

Response From Mearcliff

I have a question however how do I exactly check my fuel pressure? Is there an easy way? I am now going to check the fuel filter as well now.

Response From Mearcliff

Thank You for your responses! I as well thought it might be a fuel problem, tomorrow I am going to change the fuel filter and once I figure out how to check the fuel pressure I will do that to as well. Thanks

Response From Sidom

To check the fuel pressure there should be a test port on the injector rail you attach the gauge to but 1st you really need to see if it's a spark of fuel problem.

When it won't start hook up a spark tester (you can get any part store) & see if you have spark or if you don't have one, just give it a couple of shots of starting fluid or carb clean. If the engine starts for a couple of seconds then you know it's a fuel problem, if not then you will have to verify no spark...

Response From Mearcliff

No the engine does start up after it shuts down, but it quickly shuts down after a few seconds or a minute.

Response From Sidom

If I understand correctly the engine will start right back up before you even had time to pop the hood? If that's the case it makes it real hard to diagnosis. You would need a scope hooked up to different circuits & pressure gauge on the rail to determine what you are losing & when.

You said you've already replaced the crank sensor which would be one of the most common items for this problem. Did it make any change at all in the problem? More frequent, less frequent, quicker start time, slower start time, wife nicer? Scratch the last one but if you can't get to the engine with it's malfunctioning it makes it double tough & guessing can get expensive from here on out.

Response From Mearcliff

Lol, well I dont think you've got the picture right. The car does not start right back up by itself but when I go and turn it on it starts up but it is very, very weak. Heck, I might even upload a video on Youtube just to show you guys how exactly it shuts down and starts back up, when it shuts down it almost seams like it gets weaker and weaker by the seconds like its not getting any gas.

Response From Mearcliff

^ was replying to Sidom

Response From Sidom

If you can pinpoint the area that is giving you trouble with the tools you have, then you have a shot at tracking it down. If not then maybe way weigh out the cost of a diag as opposed to how much you may be out. Intermittens can be a pain.....

Response From Double J


To Sidom: no i have to let my Jeep sit before it can start up fully!! I hope you know the answer!!



No the engine does start up after it shuts down, but it quickly shuts down after a few seconds or a minute.



OK,which one is it?


Have known of PCM problems on these.

Response From Mearcliff

it will start after its first shut down, but it will only go for a few feet and then it shuts down again, so I have to let it sit and disconnect it from the battery so the memory is wiped clean and it will run for a mile or two and shut down.

Response From Mearcliff

So to my reply its like the second one.

Response From Mearcliff Top Rated Answer

I dont believe that it is a PCM problem because I have plugged in a pc and I did not recieve any codes!

Response From Double J

Just tossed that at ya for what its worth.

Had a couple that did the exact same thing,Never set a code,No MIL,Everything seemed to check out OK.
Both turned out to be PCM Failures.
I agree its an expensive part to guess at.And it has to be programmed to the vehicle.


I'm not implying to go out and toss a PCM in it.Just relating what i've seen.
May or may not be!

Well when I will replace the oil filter and check if the fuel pressure is ok, and the problem still persists then I have no choice but to grab a new PCM.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee - No Spark

Question From SingleDad77 on 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee - No Spark

I have replaced a lot on the car. Most recently the car's computer, crankshaft position sensor, and coil.

I tried getting a reading off the diagnostic's tool for a code, but that won't work. I can't even get a code.

The engine will turn over
There's just no spark.

I have been working on this problem for a couple months now but to no avail. Anyone got any suggestions?

Replaced plugs and wires recently too just to make sure.

Check engine light come on when you turn the ignition on?

99 Jeep no spark

Question From Willybill on 99 Jeep no spark

1999,Jeep Cherokee, 4.0,101,556 miles. This jeep quit while driving down the road. It has no spark. The motor turns over, the fuel pump works as well as everything else. I have changed the Pickup coil,distributor cap, rotor, and crankshaft position sensor. I have the ignition coil off to test, but the book I have says the primary terminals that one is + and the other is -, and the book shows that they are marked. They are not!! I turned the ignition to the run position to see if there was power to tell which was + and -, but no power there. Should there be power at the primary feed wire to the coil?? Reading some of the old Posts, could it be the Ignition control module ??

Response From Willybill

Well, I have a Electro-Tek digital multimeter. It has 6 settings for resistance, 200, 2K,20K,200K, 2M, & 20M. For low resistance I used 2K and for high resistance I used 200K or 20M. When I spoke of high voltage terminal I guess I was talking about the secondary resistance coil tower. I hope that explains things. From the specs you posted It looks like I need a new coil. Thanks, I'll let you know if that takes care of my problem.

Response From Hammer Time

You would read the primary on the 200 scale and the secondary on the 20K scale.
If the coil doesn't read within those ranges, the coil would be bad anyway.

Response From Willybill

Thanks for the help Hammer Time, I replaced the ignition coil and as soon as I added some new gas it started right up. I figured the gas would be bad as it had sat for a couple of months.

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

The power only lasts for 2 seconds or until it sees a cranking signal so you need two people to test it.

Response From Willybill

Thanks, Hammer Time, I finally had time to work on the Jeep, today. There is power to the wire that goes to the coil. I had my wife crank the Jeep also and the test light stayed on while cranking. I had the coil off and it tested with a Resistance meter: + lead to + primary terminal and - lead to - primary terminal @ 200M showed 00.0 / same test but @ 2K showed .004. Then + test lead + primary terminal and - lead to high voltage terminal @ 200K showed 12.5. I assume it is the same as an ohmmeter. Does that mean the coil is bad? My book says if the high voltage terminal test indicates infinite resistance to replace it. 200K it indicates 12.5 and at 20M setting indicates 0.01.

Response From Hammer Time

I can't make heads or tails of what your saying there.

The primary resistance is measured between the + and the - terminals
The secondary resistance is measures from either the + or the - to the coil wire tower.

Also, there are 2 different coil types with different specs

Here they are

Coil Manufacturer

Diamond
Primary Resistance
0.97 - 1.18 ohms at 21 - 27 deg C
Secondary Resistance 11300 - 15300 ohms at 21 - 27 deg C


Toyodenso
Primary Resistance 0.95 - 1.20 ohms at 21-27 deg C
Secondary Resistance 11300 - 13300 ohms at 21 - 27 deg C
