Cam Sensor Failure Causing no Start or Stalling on Dodge Ram 1500

On the 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8 the camshaft position sensor may fail and cause the engine to crank but not start or it can cause intermittent stalling. A failed camshaft sensor will require replacement.

truck stalls and check engine light comes on.the reading is crankshaft sensor,but when replaced it got
Last year we replaces my Camshaft Sensor A. Three weeks ago my truck took twenty minutes to start but i didnt have another problem until yesterday. My truck wouldnt start, I could hear my starter turning but that was all. I tried to start it a couple more times but got nothing. I came back after work and it started but the check engine light was on. I got home and my husband checked the code and it again.said Camshaft Sensor A. I am starting to think this will be a yearly occurance....

Stalling we we would slow down at red lights or in slow traffic. We couldnt figure out what it was until it just wouldnt start. So we replaced the Cam Sensor and that solved the problem.

sometimes it starts right up and runs great for a while then the check engine light come on, it'll show a code of either cam or crank sensor replace them. I tried to start the truck it just keeps cranking the check engine lights off I spray gas down the throttle body started right up ran for 15 minutes I shut it off now won't start again.

truck started to stall going at about 35-40MPH . Just kept coasting then after about 15-20 seconds it regained power . The other day pulling into Starbucks it died . Tried to start but it would . Got out pulled cover to fuses and relays to take a look . Then a friend jumped in and crank it over and it started right up .afraid to drive cuz don't know when it will die and afraid it might not start at all
Have replaced the cam sensor 3 times and still stalling

Truck will crank but won't start
Would stall at traffic lights and cuff off going down road when we touch the brake. Would crank back up engine light started flashing. Took to dealership they put on computer it showed the code was a crankshaft position sensor.
