Toyota RAV4. Camshaft position sensor "a" circuit (bank 1 or single sensor)


Description

The camshaft position (cmp) sensor consists of a magnet and an iron core which is wrapped with copper wire, and is installed onto the cylinder head. When the camshaft rotates, each of 3 teeth on the camshaft passes through the cmp sensor. This activates the internal magnet in the sensor, generating a voltage in the copper wire. The camshaft rotation is synchronized with the crankshaft rotation. When the crankshaft turns twice, the voltage is generated 3 times in the cmp sensor. The generated voltage in the sensor acts as a signal, allowing the ecm to locate the camshaft position. This signal is then used to control ignition timing, fuel injection timing, and the vvt system.

Hint:

Dtc p0340 indicates a malfunction relating to the cmp sensor (+) circuit (the wire harness between the ecm and cmp sensor, and the cmp sensor itself).

Reference: inspection using an oscilloscope


Hint:

Monitor description

If no signal is transmitted by the cmp sensor despite the engine revolving, or the rotation of the camshaft and the crankshaft is not synchronized, the ecm interprets this as a malfunction of the sensor.

If the malfunction is not repaired successfully, a dtc is set 10 seconds after the engine is next started.

Inspection procedure

Hint:

Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. Freeze frame data records the engine condition when malfunctions are detected. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air-fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

  1. Inspect camshaft position sensor (resistance)

  1. Disconnect the b6 camshaft position (cmp) sensor connector.
  2. Measure the resistance between terminals 1 and 2.

Standard resistance


Hint:

Terms cold and hot refer to the temperature of the sensor. Cold means approximately -10 to 50c (14 to 122f). Hot means approximately 50 to 100c (122to 212f).

  1. Reconnect the cmp sensor connector.

  1. Check harness and connector (camshaft position sensor - ecm)

  1. Disconnect the b6 cmp sensor connector.
  2. Disconnect the b30 ecm connector.
  3. Measure the resistance.

Standard resistance (check for open)


Standard resistance (check for short)


  1. Reconnect the ecm connector.
  2. Reconnect the cmp sensor connector.



  1. Check sensor installation (camshaft position sensor)

  1. Check the cmp sensor installation.

Ok: sensor is installed correctly.



  1. Check valve timing (see page es-77)



  1. Check camshaft

  1. Check the teeth of the camshaft.

Ok: camshaft teeth do not have any cracks or deformation.



  1. Replace camshaft position sensor


  1. Check whether dtc output recurs

  1. Connect the intelligent tester to the dlc3.
  2. Turn the ignition switch on.
  3. Turn the tester on.
  4. Clear dtcs (see page es-35).
  5. Start the engine.
  6. Select the following menu items: diagnosis / enhanced obd ii / dtc info / pending codes.
  7. Read dtcs.
