Do you know if you have any codes? Also, where did you buy the Crank Sensor?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We attempted to pull codes several months ago with a cousult at the plant and were unable at the time. Not sure if it was my car or the consult. I bought the sensor from Auto Zone.
The car had several months prior had started easily, but with a rough idle for about 30 secs and then cleared up. It did that for months. When attempting to start the car now, it turns over great, sounds like its firing and wanting to crank, but just will not. About a month ago, it finally started one day. It ran fine. Parked it and it has not started since. ANy suggestions about getting codes? I chan check with our guys in heavy repair to take test equip home if needed. Are the OBD testers from Auto Zone wort even messing with?ThanksJay
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.
Well, The first thing I will suggest is to replace that crank sensor you brought at auto zone and get one from the dealer. It's very common for after market electrical parts not to work and cause this type of condition. Especially if you had a Cam or Crank Sensor code which made you replace the sensor to begin with. Once you have replaced it with one from the dealer, return back and let me know if it starts. Sound good?
