Ses light on tech diag cam pos sen--replaced it. 5 days

Customer Question
Ses light on...

Ses light on tech diag cam pos sen--replaced it . 5 days later ses light back on. oh yes battery low had had to jump start - now starts fine. question is I thought if u replace cam pos sensor u should also replace crank pos sen

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the battery? And have you tested it with a voltmeter?

No it happens because I do not drive much some times a week goes by with out starting

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Honda?

2003 Honda civic

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Civic yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I take it to a trusted repair shop, I was a service advisor for 15 years before retiring so I have a little knowledge of auto repair .I say a little because most of it I have lost

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No I think that's it, thanks for ur time

If you had a cam fault not too long ago more then likely the vehicle was not diagnosed properly and your fault has came back on because the timing is incorrect because off a timing belt is off and causing the fault this is the most common issue . i hope this helps please dont forget to provide feedback for the help provided thank yo

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
