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.

Im a rural carrier. No hint what-so-ever that something was wrong. Was at the end of my route and it just stalled at a mailbox. Restarted right away, check engine light came on, stalled in mid-drive. Computer read crankshaft sensor...$150. The next day, ran half the route, died again. Computer read cam censor...$110, didn't charge me full for labor. Next day, end of route dies again. Computer read Idle regulator (something like that), and they changed a couple spark plugs...$423. Next day, died again. I have lost 4 days of work in between waiting for it to get fixed.
when engine is cold it starts right up. after driving for 45 min or so and turning it off( like stopping for gas) it will not start until engine cools down. have replaced both cam and crank sensors, tuneup and still not starting when hot.
My concorde lxi with the 3.5 engine has problems starting. The defect was with the camshaft sensor. Should I relplace the crankshaft sensor along with camshaft sensor?
