look at the flow chart
This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) monitors the crankshaft position (CKP) and the camshaft position (CMP) signals to determine if they are synchronized. If both signals are not observed by the control module within a narrow time window, the vehicle control module (VCM) will determine that an error has occurred.
Conditions for Running the DTC
The engine is running.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
When the engine is running, the cam sensor reference pulse is not detected at the correct position relative to the crankshaft position sensor pulse.
Action Taken When the DTC Sets
The control module illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) the first time the diagnostic runs and fails.
The control module will set the DTC and records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The control module stores the failure information in the scan tools Freeze Frame/Failure Records.
Conditions for Clearing the MIL or DTC
The control module turns OFF the MIL after 3 consecutive drive trips when the test has run and passed.
A history DTC will clear if no fault conditions have been detected for 40 warm-up cycles. A warm-up cycle occurs when the coolant temperature has risen 22°C (40°F) from the startup coolant temperature and the engine coolant reaches a temperature that is more than 70°C (158°F) during the same ignition cycle.
Use a scan tool in order to clear the DTCs.
Check the following items:
A loose CMP sensor causing a variance in the sensor signal.
Excessive free play in the timing chain and gear assembly.
Incorrectly installed distributor - 1 tooth off in either advance or retard positions.
A loose distributor rotor on the distributor shaft.
A loose or missing distributor hold down bolt.
An intermittent may be caused by any of the following conditions:
A poor connection.
Rubbed through wire insulation.
A broken wire inside the insulation.
Thoroughly check any circuitry that is suspected of causing the intermittent complaint.
The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the table.
This test will determine if this DTC is intermittent.
When the engine speed is raised to 2000 RPM the camshaft retard offset should not vary more than 2 degrees.
If excessive pressure is used when performing this test unintentional damage to the distributor shaft could result.
If the distributor is one tooth off in either the advanced or retard positions the vehicle may run but 0 degrees camshaft retard offset will not be obtained.
If 0 degrees cannot be obtained during this procedure refer to Diagnostic Aids.
