CAM SENSOR WIRING

2002 Hyundai Santa Fe

Electrical problem
2002 Hyundai Santa Fe 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 100321 miles

The car starts up just fine, but it will only stay running for 3 seconds, then it dies. I can restart it - no problem - everytime. But still the same thing, it only runs for exactly 3 seconds. The connector at the cam sensor has been taken apart - the 3 wires (a blue one, a orange one, and a black one) have been taken out of the atual connector. The are plugged onto the sensor individualy. I'm thinking bad contact? Wrong position? What is the correct position for these wires? The way the sensor is positioned on the engine, the terminals are top, middle, bottom.

. Just a follow up. For anyone else who might have the same issue - the blue wire is power (+) - top, the orange wire is singal for the computer (o) - center, the black wire is ground (-) - bottom.

I'm having the same problem with my vehicle. I've connected the wires like you've indicated above but I still have the same problem. Can you provide me with any other additional information?
