Is the timing belt broke? Did you purchase the sensor from Dodge or is it aftermarket? Is the ground at the ECU good?

Just provided a link that may be of help. I don't have much experience with your brand of vehicle. Always check the easy stuff first before replacing parts. Sometimes manufacturer parts are much better than aftermarket parts, but they do cost more. Best of luck with it.


Did the car run before you replace it,if it did and you bought a after market one then go to a oem
