No Start Cranks O K

Recommended Posts


This is truly strange. It should need both crank sensors to run. Run the OBD codes and post them here and that will likely tell the tale. See the link in my signature block for a Caddyinfo page on how to run them from your A/C buttons without a code reader.

unplugging one of the sensors trips a limp mode which adjusts readings accordingly to be able to limp the vehicle to shop or home. Ecm uses info from all other sensors to compensate for the sensor that dropped. You may have a 5v reference problem and unplugging one of the sensors improves it. yours should work in nearly the same way


Nice, clean, luxury= fine automobile
