How would the voltage to the PCM be checked? Or would I replace the Crankshaft sensor?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Does that mean the Crankshaft sensor is bad, or I have to find a short between there and the PCM? if so, how do I check the voltage to the PCM?

Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.
There are pages of testing for that but I normally replace the CKP sensor first and clear it out and see how it does. They don't normally pay diagnostic time with warrantee work. I could gather the tests for each code and put it in a PDF, if you are up for that.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


If there are tests, I would greatly appreciate them.
