When a no start condition is caused by a faulty camshaft or crankshaft sensor, related fault codes stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) should not be trusted. Our technicians tell us that under certain conditions a fault code can be stored for the "good" sensor. Care should be taken to properly diagnose this condition.

    my car would have time where it would start and other time it wouldnt start. i thought it was my ignition, my alternator even my battery. Ive had people give me jump starts and nothing. I ruled out my alternator b/c everything was still on and functioning fine. but My friend was able to replace the crankshaft sensor and she runs great.
