CAM sensor wiring

Four cylinder four wheel drive automatic 100,321 miles.

The car starts up just fine, but it will only stay running for three seconds, then it shuts off. I can restart it no problem every time. But still the same thing, it only runs for exactly three seconds. The connector at the cam sensor has been taken apart the three wires (a blue one, a orange one, and a black one) have been taken out of the actual connector. The are plugged onto the sensor individually. I am 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 signal for the computer (o) - center, the black wire is ground (-) - bottom.

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

Check the reluctor. Go to this link to understand the CMH how it operates: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itMXO56z1tw
