Hey guys. I have a 2013 dodge avenger sxt with a 2.4l motor. Its has 156,000 miles on it. The problem I have is the camshaft sensor keeps going out. I have changed this 4 times. I just did a tune up and changed the drive belt. Changed the connector harness and the wires look good. I have a good readings from the multimeter. Im stumped. Has anyone else seen this and what can I do to fix?

Haven't heard of this but are you using factory OEM replacements? That's what I would highly recommend.

This is the install procedure just in case. Check the wiring at the sensor, apparently bad wiring can cause premature failure. Hope this might help.






CAUTION
Install camshaft position (CMP) sensor utilizing twisting motion. Make sure CMP sensor is fully seated. Do not drive CMP sensor into the bore with mounting screw. This may cause CMP sensor to be incorrectly seated causing a faulty signal or no signal at all.



  1. Lubricate the sensor O-ring.



  2. Install the CMP sensor with mounting bolt tightened to 9 N·m (79.5 in. lbs.).
  3. Connect the electrical connector to the camshaft position sensor.
  4. Install the negative battery cable and tighten nut to 5 N·m (45 in. lbs.).
  5. Install the air cleaner to throttle body hose and connect the inlet air temperature sensor electrical connector.



NOTE
The Cam/Crank Variation Relearn procedure must be performed using the scan tool anytime there has been a repair/replacement made to a powertrain system, for example: flywheel, valvetrain, camshaft and/or crankshaft sensors or components (Refer to DTC-Based Diagnostics/MODULE, Powertrain Control (PCM) - Standard Procedure).
