View Full Version : crank shaft position sensor?!?!

08-28-2005, 11:45 AM
ok my ses light came on and i got it scanned at autozone. it came up as the the crank shaft position sensor. i then took it to the dealer and the guy changed the ignition coils saying that is usually what the problem is with that code. he said they had 4 grand ams in this month for that code and that is usually what it is. so i picked it up and half way home the ses light came on again. i was ****ed because i just paid to have my car fixed and it wasnt even fixed. i really dont notice anything wrong with my car just that it consumes a lot of gas since the ses light has been on. what needs to be done to fix this? now i have to go through the hassle of bringing my car back to the dealer again.

Take it back to the dealer and tell the service writer that their technician is an idiot.

When you see a code for a CKP sensor you don't just slap coils on it I don't care how bad they look. You diagnose the code per the diag chart and fix it right the first time... =p
