2005 Dodge Durango Q&A
2005 Dodge Durango Question: What would cause a cam position sensor to keep failing?
Cam position sensor on my Durango has failed numerous times in the past year, first time right around 100,000 miles. Not sure on the others (4 total), but this last one is at 123,000. Engine has never over heated, all other sensors check out fine. Only been about three weeks since I replaced it and has happened again, replaced again, cleared code and took for a test drive, all clear. Got up the next morning to go to work, and same problem again, once truck warmed up the problem resolved itself. Obviously something else causing this but any information on this problem is scarce and everything I've read only mentions over heating as a potential source for sensor failure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,..........-Joe - JLC1
Do you have any of the old sensors, have those tested to make sure they are defective. You should be looking for the cause of the problem and fix that. Have you checked the entire circuit? Check the connector at the sensor for loose or defective terminals. Do you get cam sensor codes? If so, what are they? - Herb Ackside
