    Default OBD Fault Code - P0335

    Hello there,
    Need a bit of advice, I had the little orange engine light up on my dash,with this I noticed that power was down, so I connected a ODB code reader and got code - P0335 - Crankshaft position sensor A circuit malfunction- I reset the code, but feel that I am still down on Power. Code has not re-appeared. Has anybody got any ideas. Thanks in advance.

    I would suggest that you take the car through a full drive cycle (http://www.obdforum.net/showthread.php?p=14#post14) and then re-check your error codes.

    Or.... as it's still in limp home mode... just replace the Crankshaft sensor.. quite a common failing on 1.8's... and BTW, it's good workshop practice to change the camshaft sensor at the same time as one soon goes after the other..

    Have been meaning to ask Mark, why does one sensor take the other out??

    I haven’t had a reappearance of the light since Friday, but the car feels like its down 20% power........not sure what to do......would changing these sensors make a difference to power and where are they located?

    One sensor doesn't take the other down, but the wear experienced by both means it is likely the other will go.

    Sensors may influence power yes - imagine making a cake with only half the receipe - your car may be trying to do to the same if it doesn't have all the information it needs to do its job.

    Thanks UKOBD - Is it normal for the indication NOT to come back on after it has been reset? - Any idea on location + practice to change sensor - Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    As I said before for the sensors to do their whole range the car does have to complete a full drive cycle - the ECU's registers this so you may not get an error until it is completed.

    Otherwise it can be breaking down intermittently - as Gsi 3.2 says it is better to be proactive and get them changed, before you have a problem which means you can't drive the car and are under pressure.

    Both sensors will be on the end of the cam and crack respectively, at the timing chain end of the engine.
