Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and I will be posting your reply ASAP.
all parts were new including PCM
how fast does the DTC come back when you clear it, right away ,or you have drive few miles?
was the connector on cam sensor , what are you getting on these wires do you have 2 wires or 3 wires on it
have they ohmed out for continuity in the wiring harness wires between pcm and cam sensor ?
please let me know
Thank YouChad FarhatASE Certified Technician
I will open your question for another expert to help you on it maybe they ran into it before
you changed everything and check the wiring ,I have not ran into this one before
Hi Im David. you getting any rattling noises?
i saw that. its just a question.
Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor - Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted - Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection - Faulty starter motor - Starting system circuit - Weak battery ...those are possible causes. i know everything was replaced.
it is my opinion that the camshaft position sensor is not sensing the piston position either due to a faulty sensor or the timing being a hair off.
ok. im going to look at a print. give me a sec
you need to do a continuity test of the sensor wiring from the sensor to the pcm
did you replace the cam sensor with oem?
also did you check for shorts to ground when you checked for continuity?
how about checking short to ground on the cam sensor wires
have you compared the resistance readings of both cam sensors?
well then the only thing left to do is scope the sensor and then im out of ideas
never had a problem like this that i couldnt figure out. theres no sense to it.
well we gave it a shot. sorry i couldnt be any help, ill opt out and let someone else chime in if you want.
Hi there. Different expert here.
This issue would be a lot easier to diagnose with a scan tool capable of displaying that PID - all the scope does here is re-assure us the sensor is sending a signal, we need to find out what the heck is the PCM doing with that signal and why.
Would it be possible for you to get a hold of a IDS/VCM or something equivalent to it?
