Camshaft sensor


Asked by Jan 28, 2018 at 03:25 AM about the 2012 Nissan Sentra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently changed the camshaft sensor on my 2012
Nissan Sentra, after coming home and letting it sit for a
while, it didn’t want to start, it took me several tries, what
could be the problem?

1 Answer


The service engine light was on.. the code I got was p0340 which is the cam sensor, so I changed the sensor and cleared the codes. Drove it home and it was fine, engine light is still off, but after I let it sit for a couple hours, it didn’t want to start. After a couple tries, it finally turned.
