Question about 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Error code P0335 (2005 pt cruiser)

Last month i had the timing belt replaced in this unit.
today the engine light came on and the car really "dogs out".

The odometer error read P0335

Would that be related to the timing belt repair? Is it expensive to repair this sensor?

P0335 is crankshaft position sensor circuit fault code..possible just a faulty sensor,shouldn't set a circuit code if timing is off..a sensor is probably around a 100 bucks..located just above starter in block

Hyundai accent 2008 starting issue. I wanted to post this to help others Mentally & financially as this is one of those things I could have spent hundreds on. Instead my dealer said you can throw parts at it & hope, or wait to an error code revealed itself. In the previous month I had replaced all belts, plugs & battery as I'm at 130000k & just paid it off. Ironically a week after my last car payment .this starting issue began, Get in ,drive to a store ...get back in to go home no start. Timing belt was just replaced...not timing1 Plugs just replaced...not plugs. Plenty of crank ,,new battery. Starter turns 2 or 3 cylinders fire & quits. What the F---!Take to the dealer...mechanic says it can be 1 of 4 things but of course starts there for him every time. Serviceicon1.png desk guy says to wait for error code to show up. Well 2 frustrated months later same problem & no code. However he also had asked if Id seen an error code of a key inside a car stay lit on my dash, if so it meant a fault in the key reader, After being stuck twice in one day last Friday I decided to pull my plugs and check for loose or whatever. Long story short after putting all back together,,,same problem!!! Yet it finally came to me ...YES there really is an answer. As I turned the key I started focusing on the dash and what lights came on .1st turn Acc,,,2nd turn about 5 things light up including a pic of a key inside a car,,3rd turn of the key cranks the starter & turns over the engine. Well ,,,it finally occurred to me on turn 2 that one of the lighted pics was missing...you guessed it,,,little key in car. So I kept turning from key from 1 to 2 for lights on dash until it finally lit up an when it did I turned the key to start & it did. Shut it off & tried again but noticed pic missing and car didn't start, I had been waiting all these months for this **** pic to show up as an error code on my dash but the problem was ...sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't so because it hadn't faulted yet no permanent error code could be read. However now I know I need a new key reader because so long as that pic appears on the dash in 2nd key turn ,my car has no issue, when pics not there it isn't starting. Hope this helps others diagnose this simple yet frustrating problem, life's simpler when you know what to look for.

My 97 Chevy Malibu's odometer and trip read "error". How to fix?


You'll need to reset the Electronics Control Computer otherwise called the PCM/ECC/ or ECM. You can do this by unhooking the battery cable for about 15 minutes. If this does not reset it, you may have to do it for up to a day then try hooking the cables up again. See if this works.

Trouble code p0335


Replace the crankshaft position sensor and you should be up and running like normal. Verify that there is no power or ground problem to the crankshaft sensor, the Yellow/Black wire should have battery voltage any time the key is on and the main relay is energized.Verify that the Brown/Yellow wire has a good ground. If all is good then replace.


P0335 - Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction
The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) measures crankshaft location and relays this information to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Depending on the vehicle, the PCM uses this crankshaft position information to time the spark properly or on some systems it is only for misfire detection and does not control spark timing. The CKP sensor is stationary and works in harmony with a reluctor ring (or toothed ring) that is attached to the crankshaft. As this reluctor ring passes in front of the CKP sensor, the magnetic field created by the CKP sensor is interrupted and this creates a square wave voltage signal that the PCM interprets as crankshaft position. If the PCM detects that there are no crankshaft pulses or if it sees a problem with the pulses on the output circuit, P0335 will set.

Symptoms:
NOTE: If the crank sensor is used only for misfire detection and NOT spark timing (this varies with the vehicle), the vehicle should start and run with MIL (Malfunction indicator lamp) illumination. Also, some vehicles require several key cycles to illuminate the MIL. If this is the case, there may be no MIL illumination until the problem often enough over time. If the crank sensor is used for BOTH misfire detection and spark timing, the vehicle may or may not start. Symptoms may include:
Vehicle may not start (see above)
Vehicle may run rough or misfire
MIL illumination


A P0335 "check engine light" code could be caused by:
Damaged CKP sensor connector
Damaged reluctor ring (missing teeth or not turning due to sheared-off keyway)
Sensor output open
Sensor output shorted to ground
Sensor output shorted to voltage
Failed crank sensor
Broken timing belt
Failed PCM

Possible Solutions:
Using a scan tool, check if, when engine is running or cranking, that there is an RPM signal.
If there is no RPM reading, then visually inspect the crank sensor and connector for any damage and repair as necessary. If there is no visible damage, and you have access to a scope, you could check the CKP 5 Volt square wave pattern. If you do not, then, obtain a resistance reading of your crank sensor from a repair manual. (There are so many different types of crank sensors that there's no way to put here which resistance reading is correct). Then check the resistance of the CKP sensor by disconnecting the sensor and measuring resistance of the sensor. (It is best to check resistance readings from the PCM connector. This rules out any wiring problems from the start. But it does require some mechanical skill and shouldn't be performed if you\'re not familiar with automobile electrical systems). Is the sensor within resistance specs?
If not, replace the CKP sensor. If so, recheck resistance reading from the PCM connector. Is the reading still okay?
If not, repair open or short in the wiring to the crank sensor and re-check. If the reading is okay, the problem is intermittent or the PCM may be at fault. Try reconnecting and checking for RPM signal again. If there is now an RPM signal, wiggle test the wiring harness to try and induce the fault.

This code is basically identical to P0385. This code P0335 refers to Crankshaft Posistion Sensor "A", whereas P0385 refers to Crankshaft Position Sensor "B". Other crank sensor codes include P0016, P0017, P0018, P0019, P0335, P0336, P0337, P0338, P0339, P0385, P0386, P0387, P0388, and P0389.


Hope helps.

The check engine light is on and the car some times will not start.The battery and alternator have been replaced about 6 months ago and this problem has been accruing for the last 2 months.


sounds like you have a crank sensor problem. I would go to an autozone and get he could pulled for free and see if it is either a p0725 or p0335 and check back with me.

I have nissam altima 2005 and it turned off in middle of the road today and then it showed battery sign but it was showing service engine sign from two days. when i went to autozone today then check...


Stay away from autozone. Go to a reputable garage, and tell them if you intend to fix it yourself.For a fdew bucks you can have a real mechanic diagnose it, and be sure you are fixing the correct thing, not just tossing parts at it, as they love you to do at the zone. If the engine was still running when the battery light came on , this sounds like an intermittant charging problem Have your battery and charging system professionally checked. It could also be caused bt the belt slipping, for instance if it was wet, or the steering was held on one of the stops, in a sharp turn. P0335 is indeed a crankshaft sensor code and should be checked and replaced if neccessary.Appears that there is an updated sensor, and it's very hard to plug in. Let me know if I can help furthur.

Service engine soon light came on today. Does not


drop by autozone and they will scan the codes for free (at least the last time i heard it was free) the people there are fairly knowledgable so they should be able to tell you why the light is on.

sometime it's a one off that triggers the light. after three cycles of the key when it hasn't encountered the same problem it will go out.

Engine light is on but no apparent problems. oil OK. antifreeze OK. checked spark plug wires in front. had serviced last week. drove 250 miles to Tucson. drove a couple of days around Tucson---no problem...


you should be able to cycle key 3 times quickly to on position and the odometer will show codes. have codes read and find out what issue is it may be something minor but its best to know before it gets more costly

92 Camry, have to start several times before engine turns on, onl


weak fuel pump, clogged injectors, air or coolant temp sensors out of specs. Timing belt was put on wrong. Timing is off. Map sensor out of specs. You do have a light on. Fixing why the light is on may fix your problem.
