HI,

I believe the crank sensor reluctor wheels are different. Give me about 10 minutes to verify

HI,

Ok, same 32 teeth with one long tooth.

There is a difference in the connectors - see attached

Not only do the pins read in different directions 1-2-3 versus 3-2-1, but the functions of pin 2 and 3 are opposite

for the 2014 Patriot

1 F855 PK/YL 20 5 VOLT SUPPLY
2 K925 DB/GY 20 CKP GROUND
3 K24 LB/BR 20 CKP SIGNAL

for the 2007 Caliber

1 CKP SENSOR 5 VOLT SUPPLY K853 20DB/BR
2 CKP SENSOR SIGNAL K24 20BR/LB
3 CKP SENSOR GROUND K925 20DB/WT

So I would start by checking to see if the connector was repinned or not. If not, then re-pin according to the provide pinouts

Maybe same engine size....better check with manufacturer rather than taking junk yards words as to specific details....If you are having to change wiring harnesses and sensors etc then chances are your computer is a different part number. Plus you have a lot of different modules....so you have to stick with everything 14 no using 07 harness...make sense? if sensors are different than you need to put on 14 if it doesn't fit then you got wrong motor... make sense?

You will need to find a mechanic to diagnose no spark if pcm and wring sensors are all put back to 2014 and still dont work
