Hi, welcome to

It would help to know year, model, motor, and mileage of vehicle. Are you or were you getting any warning lights? If so return here and I can tell you how to retrieve them plus what they are for. Possibly even if they are not still lit.

looks like they are for 2001

320Crankshaft position sensor reference signal cannot be found while the engine is cranking.

for after 2004

P0320 Ignition/Distributor Engine Speed Input Circuit Malfunction

hope this helps.______________

ok look at the crank possition sensor make sure the wiers are good. And it has not been bumped or moved. When you get codes like thsi it does not meen that the part is bad only it is not getting or sending a good signal. This one says not a signal at all. It shoudl get power when ever the engine is moving. So look it over real well. Are you mechanical if so I can post some instructions to check it and replace it too.

:Let me know

hope this helps
