Customer Question

I replace crank shaft bearing on my 2004 Freelander which ran. Now I get not communication at the crank position sensor. I tried a new computer but it needs to be programed. There was no power surge or pinched wires just no signal. I pulled the motor replaced the bearing do I have to position the crank in a special way like some Nissian's?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

No programming is needed when replacing a CKP sensor.

Have you verified the sensor was not impacted and is seated firm?

Have you confirmed the wires from the computer to the CKP sensor have no continuity to each other, power, or ground and there is no resistance from the computer to the sensor?

Are you sure the crank run out is correct and the CKP sensor is not to far from the tone ring?

The crank does not have to be timed a set way to get a reading if that is what your implying but the crank does need to be placed and shimmed correct with the thrust bearing/washer.

Any of these things you do not know how to check, let me know?
