Dodge Ram 1500 Problem Report
Dodge Ram 1500 Cam Sensor Failure Causing no Start or Stalling
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.

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.... - ArizonaHunny

5.7 Hemi engine stalling and difficult to re-start. Check engine light came on with Camshaft Position Sensor fault code. - Visitor
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. - Visitor

My check in engin light came on took it to the dealer and a p0301 code and it said it was a cam sensor which it was fixs then it was timed together with crank sensor which the dealer said when u fix one or the other U have to put in computer and time them together because if not it will keep on give u a fake reading - Visitor
My dodge ram 1500 2004 , has been having this sensor code for about two weeks now. I have taken it to aamco ,4 time already. They have replace the sensor and the wiring harness. They have also reprogrammed my cpu. The next day the light returned with new codes, one code had to do with the brakes and the other had to do with 4 wheel drive.Now, my truck is only two wheel drive. At this point i not even sure on what to do next. - Visitor
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. - fancie
