Cranckshaft Sensor

Does anybody have any info on this. I parked in my local Tesco and on returing to my car the engine turned over but would not start. I tried several times to start and then I noticed the the engine light was on. I tried serveral more times after 30 mins but it was the same. I called out Green Flag, when the chap arrived I told hime the problem and he said he would tow me home but first lets try to start it. We tried but the battery was flat, I must have run it down, so he hooked me up to his van and it started first time. I throught great sorted. He put his diagnostic tool on and it came up with crankshaft sensor fault. He got rid of this and he suggested tha I have a long drive to charge up my battery. I drove away to head for my local motorway I had on gone about 1/8 mile when the enging cut out completley. I managed to pull over to the side of the road. I telephoned Green Flag again and they said that they would come back and tow me home. After about 10 mins of waiting In thought that I would try to start it and guess what it started so I drove home and tommorow I will book it into my local dealer. I dread what the cost might be. Has anybody else had this fault and how major is it. Best wishers and a Happy New Year to all.

It's been covered in some fairly recent posts. I think the sensor is something like 28, and isn't to bad a job to do yourself. Someone will be along soon with more info I should think.

Your description sounds just like all the faulty crank sensors I have replaced in the past. It shouldn't be to expensive for a garage to repair it but if you can use a spanner you can do it yourself and save the half hour labour charge.

I hope to see some of you if you do Santa Pod again or I could organise a run around Liverpool and a vist to some of our great tourist sites.

You wont do any damage driving it till you get a replacement but it may leave you high & dry somewhere if it fails completely lol

It won't do any harm to the engine but could leave you stranded anywhere, usually in the worst place possible.

Crankshaft Sensor

Hey you guys are soo right, I carried on driving and yes you've guessed the car stopped on me in not quite an arkward place, left if for two hours. I needed to jump start it and it went first time, this time I drove to my local garage where it is now, just waiting for the call from the main dealer today telling my sensor is in for me to collect. So to all those guys you did indeed tell me so! ( I will listen in future)

This forum rocks and thanks to all those who replied to my post and I hope to meet up with some you this year. Ossie
