P0341 Cam Synchronization Error

P0341 Cam Synchronization Error

General Description (P0341)

Camshaft position sensor is installed on the cylinder head. Camshaft position sensor senses therevolution of cams haft by converting magnetic flux change into electric signal.
Magnetic flux changes generate due to position change of tone wheel installed on the flywheel as magnetic inductive sensor type. Camshaft position sensor is used to determine the top dead center (#1 cylinder compression stroke) together with crankshaft position sensor at starting. In case of camshaft position sensor failure, ETCM controls engine with crankshaft position sensor only.

DTC Description P0341

If the signal phase difference of camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor is above ±6 ˚ for 0.12 sec. or more, ETCM judges this as a fault and DTC is set. The possible cause may be great phase difference, signal noise etc.
In case of synchronization error in camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor, the vehicle is not operated because ETCM can not control the engine.

Specification

P0341 Cam Synchronization Error

The position which “A” of cam signal and “B” of crank signal are met is the phase difference. If the phase difference is out of range(±6˚) as shown in the illustration, ETCM cuts off fuel. ETCM judges that the valve is not fully closed due to backlash of camshaft or gear assembly problem and ETCM will not inject fuel. Therefore, we can check such a mechanical problem as great backlash of timing gear without disassembling the engine by analyzing two waveforms

Monitor Scantool Data

1. Connect scan tool to the self-diagnosis connector.
2. Warm up the engine to the normal operating temperature.
3. Turn the electrical equipment and air conditioner OFF.
4. Monitor “Engine Rev.” parameter on the scan tool.

Refer to “Engine Rev.” parameter depending on the opening of throttle.

Terminal & Connector Inspection

1. Many malfunctions in the electrical system are caused by poor harness, and terminals.
2. Faults can also be caused by interference from other electrical systems, and mechanical or chemical damage.

Thoroughly check connectors for looseness, poor connection, bending, corrosion, contamination, deterioration, or damage.
