DOES THE ICM GIVE CRANK REFERENCE FOR THE STARTER CIRCUIT?

2006 Saturn Ion • 56,000 miles

The car ran fine and all at once p0340 came on and starter stays engaged for one to two seconds after engine starts

Check if the starter relay is sticking to include the ignition switch

Just to add to this one you will need a test light or multimeter and see if there is power to the small purple wire at the starter when the key is released from the start position and the starter still runs. If there isnt power power at the purple wire with the starter running then bad starter. As far as the code P0340 I need to know what engine you have?

The starter wire is hot when engaged. And the engine is a 2.2 ecotech

Could be the starter pinion drive is too close to the flexplate-havethe clearance checked- P0340-camshaft sensor

If the purple trigger has power while the starter continues to run with the key not in the run position then that has nothing to do with the pion of the starter. Something is giving the starter power to keep it running.
