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
‹› Wiring diagram.
‹› 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.
Perform a preliminary check to verify the customers complaint. Refer to => [ Preliminary Check ] See: Powertrain Management/Computers and
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.
