Engine Does Not Start and PCM Fault Code Storedon Chrysler Concorde

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.

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.

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.

engine will not start when warm. if cold it always starts. if shut off for less than 5 minutes like a gas fillup it always starts if shutoff more than 10 minutes and less than 60 minutes more times than not it will not fire. come back in 2 hours it will start right up. has been in the shop 4 times 800 spent cam sensor replaced 3 times crank sensor replaced once and some reprograming done and it still does it at least once a week

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?

Hard starting at times. At first I thought it was bad fuel or plugged fuel. Had the pump pressure checked and was OK I changed the cam shaft sensor and crank shaft sensor. Had the same problem. Code kept showing cam shaft sensor. The two sensors I put in were after market parts. I should have known better, replaced the cam shaft sensor with a MOPAR brand cam shaft sensor, and so far the car is starting good......

This would be the 5th cam/crankshaft sensor I have had installed. Just stupid!!! I can't believe Chrysler hasn't found a fix.

The car will stall at low speeds or at idle. The car will not start for about thirty minutes after it stalls. Have not gotten the car fixed yet.
