Toyota Venza: Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction (P0340,P0342,P0343)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / 1ar-fe Engine Control / Sfi System / Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction (P0340,P0342,P0343)

DESCRIPTION

The camshaft position sensor (G signal sensor) for the intake camshaft consists of a magnet and MRE (Magneto Resistance Element).

The camshaft has a timing rotor for the camshaft position sensor. When the camshaft rotates, changes occur in the air gaps between the timing rotor and MRE, which affects the magnet. As a result, the resistance of the MRE material fluctuates. The camshaft position sensor converts the camshaft rotation data to pulse signals, uses the pulse signals to determine the camshaft angle, are sends it to the ECM. Then the ECM uses this data to control fuel injection time and injection timing.

DTC No.

DTC Detection Condition

Trouble Area

P0340

When one of the following conditions is met:

  • No camshaft position sensor signal to the ECM while cranking (2 trip detection logic).
  • No camshaft position sensor signal to ECM at engine speed of 600 rpm or higher (1 trip detection logic).
  • A missing camshaft position sensor signal despite the crankshaft position sensor inputs being normal at an engine speed of 600 rpm or higher (1 trip detection logic).
  • Open or short in camshaft position sensor (for intake camshaft) circuit
  • Camshaft position sensor (for intake camshaft)
  • Intake camshaft
  • Timing chain jumped tooth
  • ECM

P0342

The output voltage of the camshaft position sensor is below 0.3 V for 4 seconds (1 trip detection logic).

  • Open or short in camshaft position sensor (for intake camshaft) circuit
  • Camshaft position sensor (for intake camshaft)
  • ECM

P0343

The output voltage is higher than 4.7 V for 4 seconds (1 trip detection logic).

  • Open or short in camshaft position sensor (for intake camshaft) circuit
  • Camshaft position sensor (for intake camshaft)
  • ECM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

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

Also, when the sensor output voltage remains at below 0.3 V, or higher than 4.7 V for 4 seconds or more, the ECM stores a DTC.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

HINT:

  • Read freeze frame data using the Techstream. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. 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.
  • If no problem is found through this diagnostic troubleshooting procedure, there may be a mechanical problem with the engine.
