i haven't but i sure hope canadian tire did since i paid for diagnostics. where is it located so i can check it?

probably in the interior fuse box, if it has one. check the map on the fuse box cover for anything that says DLC. DLC = data link connector, which is the diasgnostic port

if youve already replaced the pcm and the DLC wiring, theres no reason it shouldnt work.

is there power at the DLC? meaning when you plug the scan tool in, does it power up the tool?

yup. yhey even ran a seperate wire to make sure there wasnt a short . they're absolutely lost. my only hope was to see if anyone else had this problem

ive seen this before with a lot of cars, but its never been the same reason twice, or easy to fix.

I'm having the same problem. Replaced cam sensor, ECM, wiring harness and still p340 code keeps coming up. Sometimes car won't start. I don't know what else to do. Any solutions? I have a 03 Chrysler intrepid (not dodge)
