P0341 on 2005 Honda Accord 2.4L

Asked by Mar 04, 2017 at 07:15 PM about the 2005 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Got a question...

Pulled out of my driveway yesterday and after about 2 minutes got a check engine light. Took it in and got a P0341 code. I have a brand new starter and I have no loss in power and my car is running just as it always has been. I get frequent oil changes and don't use old oil. What could be the problem?

I'm really hoping it's not a slipped or stretched timing chain, but it doesn't feel like that's the problem. Is this a simple fix or could something deeper be the problem?

Thanks!

P0341 HONDA - Camshaft Position Sensor Incorrect Phase Detected...Possible causes; Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor; Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted; Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection; Faulty starter motor; Starting system circuit Dead (Weak) battery....Tech notes: A damaged or stretched cam chain, resulting from infrequent oil changes, can cause the MIL to come on with DTC P0341 (CMP sensor A and CKP sensor incorrect phase detected). Old oil causes the cam chain to wear quickly. As a result, it stretches beyond the point where the cam chain auto-tensioner can keep up. That extra chain slack causes the valve timing control (VTC) actuator and the exhaust camshaft sprocket to lag behind, and you wind up with DTC P0341.
