How to test a crank sensor with a voltmeter (All Chrysler models)
The tests shown in this video apply to camshaft, crankshaft and vehicle speed sensors on ALL Chrysler models, in all production years. The vehicle being tested is a 1997 Jeep with a 4.0L engine. Chrysler has changed very little in regards to their hall effect sensors throughout the years. Older systems used an 8-9v reference circuit (power supply), where the newer systems use 5v. And with all of them, the signal circuit is a 5v pull-down design. Engine Performance Diagnostics chapter 21 pages 20-29 Tests shown - how to check a crank sensor with a voltmeter -what does an on/off digital signal look like on a voltmeter - how to check the 5v reference and ground to the sensor - how to perform a bypass test - how to verify signal circuit integrity Tools used - digital multimeter - jumper wire - backprobing pins - incandescent test light - scan tool Related videos - 1997 Dodge Neon no start, crank sensor problems https://youtu.be/xwh3XM1Nl4k - How to test a crank sensor (Chrysler Dodge Jeep) https://youtu.be/YtpDi2vnGog - How to test a cam sensor with a voltmeter (All Chrysler models) https://youtu.be/irHVjFTq4LE - 2003 Chrysler-Dodge 3 8L No Start (faulty crank sensor) https://youtu.be/VrsI1xCoZ8M Playlist (Chapter 21) Ignition inputs, cam and crank https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAFYVCyenqcqEN41aYznWn9Nfhy1PiMjo For more information on this topic, I have written a “field manual” called Engine Performance Diagnostics which is available at www.scannerdanner.com as an eBook or paper book.
