It is a code for a slow response from the cam sensor. It can be cause from dirty oil or the wrong type of oil.
Have you changed oil lately and if so what type of oil was used?
If your sure the oil is correct then there is an issue with the cam sensor or cam sensor solenoid. I will attach the diagnostic flow chart that you will need to use to see which one it is.
P000B-BANK 1 CAMSHAFT 2 POSITION SLOW RESPONSE
Variable Valve Timing (VVT) rationality is monitored under the following conditions: (1) Cam phasing is commanded off of the default (lockpin) position; (2) Oil temperature is between 20°F and 284°F (-7°C to 140°C) ; (3) Battery voltage is greater than 10 volts ; (3) Engine speed is at least 1000 to 1400 rpm , depending on oil temperature; (4) No CMP sensor, CKP sensor, or OBDI plausibility errors. Before VVT can be enabled, reference adaptation must be completed.
The actual camshaft phasing setpoint does not match the desired camshaft phasing setpoint.
2. ENGINE OIL DIRTY OR CONTAMINATED Turn the ignition off.Inspect engine oil for signs of contamination, sludge, or foreign material.NOTE: If the engine oil is contaminated, inspect the Camshaft 1/2 Position Solenoid for contamination, foreign material, or any condition that would restrict movement of the valve. The solenoid must be replaced if it is damaged or if valve movement is restricted due to contamination.Were any problems found? Yes
3. INCORRECT ENGINE OIL VISCOSITY Review service history to determine if the correct viscosity engine oil was used.Were any problems found? Yes
4. CAMSHAFT 1/2 POSITION SOLENOID CONTROL ACTUATION Turn the ignition on.With the scan tool, actuate the Camshaft 1/2 Position Solenoid control to toggle on and off.Listen for the Camshaft 1/2 Position Solenoid to click open and closed during the actuation.Does the Camshaft 1/2 Position Solenoid click open and closed during the actuation? Yes
5. (K343) FUSED MAIN RELAY OUTPUT CIRCUIT HIGH RESISTANCE
Well dirty oil or the wrong weight of oil is normally what causes this problem, but you stated that it is good. So the problem is either a solenoid or a sensor and I sent you the test to figure out which one it needs.
What can I do to help you figure it out?
basically your last response i could have gotten from anyone. That being take it in to a Chrysler dealer. Your answer is vague and i thought the whole point of the code was to pin point cause. How do we know its just not a bad cam censor. Is there a different code for that?
how long does this usually take? am i entitled to a replacement car if needed?
should i as k jiffy lube or is their highest grade oil rge correct one ? i will be going to chrysler too
