Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
Where did you get the Cam Sensor replacement connector from? Are all the wires connected in the right order?
You replaced the Cam Sensor as well I take it? Where did you buy the sensor?
Where did you buy it ?
After market Sensors never work. If you had a P0340 code for the cam sensor, you need to get the sensor from the dealer.
I also like to normally replace the CAM and CRANK sensor in pairs.
Yeah.. Did the car run at all with the old sensor?
When it comes to after market sensors, they never work right. Do your self a favor and just get the sensors from the dealer. I know they are more money, but we are talking safety. Sensors from the dealer will resolve your issue.
I would put back the CAM sensor you had and you can see if it will start. But if you have a after market Crank Sensor that could be the issue of the CAM sensor code and can certainly also keep the car from starting.
I have dealt with this so many times online and at work where customers get a Cam Sensor code, pick one up at there local auto parts store and put it in. When it doesn't fix the problem that is when they bring it to us. They bitch and scream when we tell them they need a cam sensor. They don't understand cause it's brand new. It is something that every true Nissan Tech knows that when it comes to electrical parts, stick with the dealer. These cars don't like After Market electrical parts.

I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.
The worst is when Nit Wits Garage replaces a ton of after market electrical parts to try to fix a problem. That is when you don't even know where to start.
Yup.. So lets give the sensors a go. If you still have any issues, feel free to return back to this question. I will continue to help you.
Ok then. Take care and return back and let me know how you made out or if you have any more questions on this.
Really? .. The only other thing I would say then, it may have jumped time if you replaced both sensors with sensors from the dealer.
I would pop the valve cover off and put the engine at TDC and check you upper timing marks to see if they are lined up.
It could be a ECM issue, forgot about that. Would you like the ECM terminal Reference check?
That is the Ecm terminal reference check. What I normally do is print this out and bring it to the car. Then I would go through each pin on the Ecm ( Key On, Engine turning over, Key Off , These tests only ) of course you can't do the engine running tests. But I will take a pen and write down my findings on the paper and when I am done I look at all my findings and compare them all with the spec readings.
Lets run that check and see what we come up with. If the ECCS fuse blew, it is possible that the Ecm may have shorted.
During Cranking you need to use a Oscilloscope to really monitor to see if the Ecm is seeing the proper signals.
On the very first page has the pin layout
I am having a little issue right now.
Do you need my help on how to do the pin check?
I do all the pin checks that I am able to
