A hard or no start condition with fault codes P0335 and/or P0340 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) may be due to abnormal wear of the camshaft position sensor support. Our technicians tell us a revised sensor support is available to correct this issue.

    My 2005 Lancer ES has problem starting about 30% of the time. I would turn the key and nothing would happen except the running lights dims. No clicking, no sound at all. I would have to adjust the key slightly and try again. The process might have to be repeated 3-4 times before it starts. This occurs more when the engine is hot (like running around town with frequent stops).
