P0341 - CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR CIRCUIT RANGE/PERFORMANCE
Description of DTC code P0341
The Camshaft position sensor (CMP) conveys a signal to the Powertrain Control Module and indicates the position of the camshaft. This is done using a slip ring which is connected to the camshaft and passes through the CMP sensor.
The code P0341 means that the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) has detected a fault in the CMP (Camshaft Position Sensor) circuit. This fault is caused because the signal sent by the CMP sensor is not within specifications.
If the signal that is sent to the PCM does not match the expected signal, the DTC code P0341 OBD2 is displayed.
Symptoms of fault code P0341
- The Check Engine light is on.
- Difficulty in starting the engine.
- It lowers fuel efficiency.
Causes of OBD2 P0341
When fault code P0341 OBD II is set, one or more of the following problems may have occurred:
- Possibly the cables leading to the camshaft position sensor (CMP) are too close to the spark plug cables and the connection is affected.
- The electrical connection between the CMP sensor and the PCM may be poor.
- The glow ring may be in bad shape.
- The Camshaft position sensor (CMP) may be defective.
Possible solutions of the DTC code P0341
When faced with the diagnostic code P0341, you can do the following to solve it:
- Verify that the Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) cable system is not too close to ignition components such as coil, spark plug wires, etc. If this is the case, you must correct it immediately.
- Visually, check the CMP sensor wiring for worn or burned cables. Repair or replace any of these as needed.
- Look for visible damage to the Camshaft position sensor (CMP).
- By means of the CMP sensor port, check the glow ring, you may be missing a tooth or have any damage. It may be the case that you cannot perform this test due to the design of the engine, so you must remove the camshaft or intake manifold. Repair or replace if necessary.
- If the tests carried out previously are successful, you must change the CMP
