I have a 2004 huyndai Santa Fe. The belt tensioner broke on the timing bet. I Found another motor to replace the one I had. All was well then it started stalling, misfiring and dying. I had a mechanic read the codes. Each time it would give me segment timing incorrect which the suggestion was to replace the Crank Position Sensor. I replaced it. Now the car will not start. It will turn over but will not start. I took the new sensor out twice and replaced with another new one. It still wont start. What would be the issue? Do I need to clear the codes or am I haveing a run of bad parts?

Do you
have the same problem?

Are you able to restart with the original sensor?
Did you check the pickup point of the sensor for damage?

The old sensor was damaged and burned and will not work. The one I replaced it with that would act up after it got warm was returned the parts house. We have checked the contact point on the block to see if there is any obstruction. I have someone coming over today to ome out the wiring harnes to see if there is a broke wire and a voltage probe to make sure were getting the right voltage.

Thanks for all your help.

I was mistaken on the code. It was a P0335. It read Crankshaft Possition Sensor. We ran a voltage test and omed it. We are getting fire to the sensor. We are finding we are not getting fire to the coil pack. Would this sensor supply fire to the plugs?

It supplies a signal to the coil to fire. The crank sensor should be about 825 ohms. Across one connector terminal of the crank sensor and chassis ground key on engine off you should see 1.4 volts. Then do the same on the other connector terminal and you should see the same.

Ok, I went back to the same auto parts store and had this one exchanged for warranty. This is the 4th time. I put it on the car and no luck. The car still wouldnt start. I went to another parts house and got a name brand one staying away from house brands. Put the new one on the car and she fired right up. I drove my car to the parts house were I have went through 4 defective parts and told them I wanted to return and no more replacements. They had to ask me if I knew what I was doing and I told them there is the car in the parking lot with a competitors part and it is running. They gave me my money back. I want to thank you for all your help.

Your welcome that's what were here for you could have just checked all those sensors with a ohms meter like I told you could with a ohms meter. That would would have told you that you were getting bad parts all along.
