P0336 - Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor A Performance
P0336 code definition
Driving rod Position Sensor A Circuit Range/Performance
What the P0336 code implies
At the point when the P0336 demonstrative difficulty code has been put away in the Engine Control Module (ECM), it means that the "A" circuit of the driving rod position sensor has a reach/execution mistake.
A speedy foundation into this framework:
The driving rod position sensor records the pivot speed of the driving rod, screens the motor valves to guarantee the cylinders can work appropriately, and screens how well the motor is working. The ECM utilizes the data that has been recorded by the driving rod to make any fundamental changes in accordance with the fuel infusion cycle and start timing. At the point when the driving rod position sensor and ECM are working appropriately together, they control the vehicle's discharge execution and force yield. This instrument permits the vehicle to be dependable with incredible driveability.
The driving rod position sensor has two sections: a turning circle (reluctor) and the fixed sensor. Most of driving rod position sensors have a voltage wire sensor, a ground wire, and a sign wire. These three wire sensors cooperate to furnish the ECM with a cycles each moment (RPM) signal.
With this data, just as the data it gets from the camshaft position sensor, the ECM can decide how to change the circumstance of the start and fuel infusion. At the point when the ECM quits getting the legitimate sign from the driving rod position sensor, and is in this manner unfit to decide how to make essential changes, it will store the P0336 inconvenience code.

What causes the P0336 code?
The reluctor wheel has broken, snapped, or has worn out teeth
Driving rod position sensor magnet shavings have stalled out on the sensor or the reluctor wheel
Wires and circuits have consumed or shorted out
A short in the driving rod position sensor wiring bridle
A wrecked or consumed driving rod position sensor connector
Flawed driving rod position sensor
Defective camshaft position sensor
What are the indications of the P0336 code?
Check Engine Light will come on
At least one chambers might fizzle
Vehicle might delay upon speed increase
Vehicle might begin unpredictably or will not begin by any stretch of the imagination
Motor might vibrate/falter
Vehicle might slow down or misfire
Loss of efficiency
Varieties in speed, speed increase, or potentially standing by capacities
How does a technician analyze the P0336 code?
Utilizations an OBD-II scanner to get all of the difficulty codes that have been put away by the ECM
Outwardly assesses the driving rod position sensor for clear harm
Investigates the wiring for breaks, consumes, or shorts. Ensure that the sensor wires are not very near the sparkle plug wires
Reviews the connector for breaks, consumption, or a free connector
Reviews the driving rod outfit wiring protection for a harm
Reviews the reluctor wheel for any harm (the reluctor wheel ought not be free on the driving rod)
Ensures that the reluctor haggle top of the driving rod position sensor have the appropriate hole.
Clears the difficulty codes and plays out a test to check whether any return,
Utilizations the scanner to see the RPM perusing (done while beginning the vehicle)
Without any a RPM perusing, utilizes the scanner to check the driving rod position sensor signal.
Utilizations a volt-ohm meter (VOM) to test the obstruction in the driving rod position sensor wiring and the driving rod position sensor itself (opposition determinations are given by the maker)
Checks the camshaft position sensor and its wiring - since the driving rod and the camshaft cooperate, a flawed camshaft position sensor, or potentially camshaft position sensor wiring can influence the activity of the driving rod position sensor.
In case there is a motor fizzle, it should be analyzed and fixed.
In the event that each of the symptomatic tests don't resolve the issue with the driving rod position sensor, there is an uncommon chance of an issue with the ECM.
Normal errors when diagnosing the P0336 code
There are a couple of missteps that are regularly raised when diagnosing hell code P0336, however the most well-known of these is supplanting the driving rod position sensor disregarding the other potential arrangements.
The driving rod position sensor and camshaft position sensor work intently together, and therefore, it is normal for the driving rod position sensor to be supplanted when the genuine issue is that the camshaft position sensor is broken.
Prior to supplanting the driving rod position sensor, It is likewise essential to think about there being a motor failure to fire or a wiring issue. Giving these parts appropriate thought will save you a ton of time, and will help keep away from misdiagnoses.
How genuine is the P0336 code?
A vehicle with this difficulty code happening is problematic, as it could be hard to begin or may not begin by any means.
Likewise, when an issue with the driving rod position sensor goes unaddressed for a drawn out timeframe, it is feasible to harm other motor parts. Therefore, the P0336 inconvenience code is considered genuine.
What fixes can fix the P0336 code?
Supplanting a harmed reluctor wheel
Fixing or supplanting a harmed driving rod position sensor wiring or hardware
Fixing or supplanting harm or consumption of the driving rod position sensor connector
Fixing or supplanting the driving rod position sensor wiring outfit
Fixing any motor discharge failures if fundamental
Supplanting a broken driving rod position sensor
Supplanting a broken camshaft position sensor
