The car almost stalled yesterday and check engine light came on. I pulled up the code: P1361. Checked the sensor connection and everything looked fine. Reset the light and the car drives fine for now. Is it time for TDC sensor to be replaced or is there another cause for this?

Hi Maverick650

DTC P1361: CMP (TDC) SENSOR INTERMITTENT INTERRUPTION, DTC P1362: CMP (TDC) SENSOR NO SIGNAL
1. Reset the ECM/PCM
2. Start the engine. Is DTC P1361 and/or P1362 indicated? YES - Go to step 3. NO - Intermittent failure, system is OK at this time. Check for poor connections or loose terminals at the CMP (TDC) sensor and at the ECM/PCM.
3. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
4. Disconnect the CMP (TDC) sensor 3P connector.
5. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
6. Measure voltage between CMP (TDC) sensor 3P connector terminal No. 3 and body ground.
Is there battery voltage? YES - Go to step 7. NO - Repair open in the wire between PGM-FI main relay 1 and the CMP (TDC) sensor.
7. Measure voltage between CMP (TDC) sensor 3P connector terminal No. 2 and body ground.
Is there about 5 V? YES - Go to step 8. NO - Go to step 10.
8. Measure voltage between CMP (TDC) sensor 3P connector terminals No. 1 and No. 3.
Is there battery voltage? YES - Go to step 9. NO - Repair open in the wire between the CMP (TDC) sensor and G101.
9. Substitute a known-good CMP (TDC) sensor and recheck. 8
Is DTC P1361 and/or P1362 indicated? YES - Update the ECM/PCM if it does not have the latest software, or substitute a known- good ECM/PCM, then recheck. If the symptom/indication goes away with a known-good ECM/PCM, replace the original ECM/PCM. NO - Replace the original CMP (TDC) sensor.
Measure voltage between ECM/PCM connector terminal A26 and body ground.
Is there about 5 V? YES - Repair open in the wire between the ECM/PCM (A26) and CMP (TDC) sensor. NO - Go to step 11.
Turn the ignition switch OFF.
Disconnect ECM/PCM connector A (31P).
Check for continuity between ECM/PCM connector terminal A26 and body ground.
Is there continuity? YES - Repair short in the wire between the ECM/PCM (A26) and the CMP (TDC) sensor. NO - Update the ECM/PCM if it does not have the latest software, or substitute a known- good ECM/PCM, then recheck. If the symptom/indication goes away with a known-good ECM/PCM, replace the original ECM/PCM.

Hv a honda civic hx and got a reading P1362, the car turns over but wont star. Would that be the crankshaft or camshaft sensor?

Hi chadondra,

That is the code for CMP (TDC) sensor.
