Hi
Welcome to JA.com
The problem is crank position sensor related, the sensor is behind the alternator(generator)
there are only three wire for this component.
remove the alternator belt and push it back to gain access to the multi plug, disconnect the plug and check the voltages at the wires listed below with the ignition on
Red/ black battery positive 10-14 volts
Yellow/ black signal to engine control 4-5 volts
black/orange earth. 0 volts.
If all the readings are ok then you require a crank sensor

OK, those numbers are what i need, but someone else said the plug/sensor is in the bell housing area and that the engine will have to drop out to replace this sensor? can you confirm this? It looks like you are the Master!

Hi
Sorry i did not see the vehicle was a 2ltr engine, the readings are the same but yes the gearbox and flywheel have to be removed to replace the sensor, you can get to the multi plug but it's not easy.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
is there a way to by-pass this sensor/ is it really needed? the car runs great, i just cant get my plates renewed with the light on the dashboard "on"

thankyou,
jack

Hi Jack
Sorry for the delay.
The most common fault is a loose connection on the multi plug, to cancel the mil light disconnect the battery or engine control unit for 2 minutes and this will clear the fault code and turn of the mil light.

Thankyou, if i should have another question can i call on you?
