Camshaft Position Sensor: Testing and Inspection

Camshaft Position Sensors G40 and G163, Checking

The following procedure is used to diagnose both Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor (G40) and Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor 2 (G163)

‹› Use only gold-plated terminals when servicing terminals in harness connectors of Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor (G40) and Camshaft Position

(CMP) Sensor 2 (G163). 

Special tools, testers and auxiliary items required

‹› Multimeter.

‹› Wiring diagram.

Test requirements

‹› The Engine Control Module (ECM) ( J623) fuses OK.

‹› Battery voltage at least 12.5 volts.

‹› All electrical consumers such as, lights and rear window defroster, switched off.

‹› Vehicles with automatic transmission, shift selector lever into position " P" or "N".

‹› A/C switched off.

‹› Ground (GND) connections between engine/transmission/chassis OK.

‹› Ignition switched off.

Test procedure

-

Perform a preliminary check to verify the customers complaint. Refer to => [ Preliminary Check ] See: Powertrain Management/Computers and
Control Systems/Testing and Inspection/Scan Tool Testing and Procedures/Preliminary Check

Start diagnosis

-

Disconnect the Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor ( G40) electrical harness connector - 1 -or Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor 2 (G163) - 2 -. 

-

Switch the ignition on.

-

Using a Multimeter, Check the Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor electrical harness connector terminals 1 to 3 for voltage.
