EASY! How to Replace a Crankshaft Sensor from UNDER THE DASH for a Jeep Grand Cherokee (1999 shown)
Thanks to whoever posted these instructions!
EASY!!! After cutting the crap out of my hands and inventing new curse
words removing the old Crankshaft Position Sensor from my 2003 Grand
Cherokee 4.0, I could not get the bolt back in with multiple extensions and
I figured there MUST be an easier way, something the stealership is not
letting on about.
Fact is, if you go through the firewall under the dash it is EASY!!
Here's how to do it:
1) Remove the plastic bottom panel directly under the gauges. It simply
snaps up and out.
2) Locate the bolts and screws that hold the lower plastic panel under the
steering column and remove them to free up the panel. Remove the panel.
3) Look behind the center console toward the front and you will see a small
plastic "L" shaped duct that blows air to your feet. Snap it out of its
position and remove thephillips screw holding it from under/behind (or cut
the plastic flange with a razorknife halfway if the screw is hard to get at
- takes a shorty phillips screwdriver. This way you can still snap it back
4) Pull the carpet back and tuck it under the gas pedal.
5) You will see 2 oval metal plates that are attached to the firewall for
the shifter and accelerator cables to pass through. Remove the 2 10mm nuts
from the upper one that the shifter cable passes through and pull the plate
6) VIOLA! There is the crankshaft position sensor staring you right in the
face through the hole in the firewall you have exposed!
7) Insert a 10mm socket with extension and remove/replace the CPS mounting
bolt with ease.
Jeep Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement (CKP, CKPS, CPS)
Jeep died while driving. Jeep would crank but did not start.
Testing demonstrated ignition coil was not producing spark. Code #11 was
pulled from the OBD I computer (loss of camshaft or crankshaft position
sensor). With help from cherokeeforum.com and jeepforum.com it was
determined that the crankshaft position sensor was most likely the culprit
(as it is in most cases).

Cam sensor replacement: 30 to 90 minutes.
Replaced the crank sensor on this 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Initially it
popped a crank sensor code. The IAC, CAM sensor, and Crank sensor were
replaced and it ran good cold but once warmed up it ran real bad, popped
more codes and really wouldn't run at all, like the timing was off.
Replaced the crank sensor with a OEM part and all seems well now, after 1
hour of running. Took about 45 minutes to figure out how to change the
crank sensor. Should take about 30 minutes.
