The crankshaft position sensor/engine speed sensor should be between 480-100 ohms and on the camshaft position sensors you need to verify one wire has good ground, one wire has good voltage, and the other wire should pulsate voltage. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

which pins do i test with on the conector
Expert:  Dan replied 7 years ago.
The middle pin should vary voltage and the end pins should have power and ground. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
