Hello, do these wires go under the intake manifold at the front? Can you upload a picture of that connector and what color are the wires? Does the engine start and run?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
They they are in front of the manifold underneath it. One connector has a clip with two wires coming out of it I believe a blue and a brown or green and a brown wire. It goes into a plug in the block which might be a threaded plug

The engine does not start and run
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 10 months ago

Thanks, ***** ***** like it's for the knock sensor but this should not keep it from starting. What happens when you try to start, does the engine just crank without firing up?

It cranks without firing up
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 10 months ago

Ok, it may be the connector for the camshaft position sensor, this would keep it from starting, let me look at a wiring diagram and match up those wire colors you gave me.

Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 10 months ago

Those wire colors don't match anything in the engine control diagram, is there any way you can take a picture of this connector and it's location on the engine?

My camera is not working. The two wires are brown and green and they come from a wiring harness on the left-hand side of the front of the engine and they go into a plug in the block of the engine in front of the manifold. The connector that goes into the engine looks like it might be threaded connector
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
The connector comes out of the side of the engine just in front to the right of the front spark plug on the left-hand side

Ok, where do the wires attached to the connector go? where is the other side of the connector and where does it end up?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
You should see two wires sticking up that a bear on the end that go into the engine block is only a short distance from the connector to those wires in there just below the connector
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Can you see the two wires that are bare on the end sticking out of the block?
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 10 months ago

I'll have to lighten it up a bit and maybe enlarge it.

Ok, got it, let me see now if I can match them up.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 10 months ago

It looks like it's for the camshaft position sensor, can you see the other wire colors coming out of the connector? Where is the other half of the connector, the part that plugs into this one do you still have it?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I have the female end It has a brown and green wire coming out of it
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 10 months ago

Ok then just splice the wires together matching the wire colors, I would solder them and then insulate them.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
There is not enough wire sticking out of the female connector to solder too. The rats chewed it. What is the name of that connector so I can pick it up at the local Toyota dealership?
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 10 months ago

In the wiring diagram it is the C2 connector indicated in the connector list for the engine control system.. ( for the cam angle sensor) be sure to take the old one with you in case they have questions.
