2000 Acura p1362 code

posted May 31, 2016 19:29:55 by RobBrown
Hey all,
Have a 2000 Acura, 3.2L engine, with code p1362 and several misfire codes. I'm unfamiliar with this "Top Dead Center" sensor and how it should be checked, and if it's more likely a symptom or a cause of a multiple cylinder misfire. Anyone with access to service info want to chime in? The internet is of almost no help at all on this one.
Many thanks,
Rob
Just a dude who found a sudden and unexpected passion to bless folks who can't afford auto repair with free help. I never, ever imagined this is how'd I'd be spending my free time:-)

The code refers to tdc sensor a, or cam position sensor A. Must be bank one, should be pretty straight forward. Here's what my information system has to say about troubleshooting the code.

SEARCH
2000 Acura TL V6-3206cc 3.2L SOHC MFI
Vehicle » A L L Diagnostic Trouble Codes ( DTC ) » Testing and Inspection » P Code Charts » P1362
P1362
DTC P1362: CMP (TDC) Sensor A No Signal

Reset the PCM.
Start the engine.
Is DTC P1361, P1362, P1366, or P1367 indicated?

YES - Go to step 3.

NO - Intermittent failure, system is OK at this time. Check for poor connections or loose wires at the CMP (TDC) sensor A/B and at the PCM.
Turn the ignition switch OFF.
Disconnect the CMP (TDC) sensor A/B 4P connector.

Zoom Sized for Print

Measure resistance between the terminals of the indicated sensor (see table).
Is there 1,850 - 2,450 Ohm ?

YES - Go to step 6.

NO - Replace CMP (TDC) sensor A/B.


Zoom Sized for Print

Check for continuity to body ground on both terminals of the indicated sensor individually.
Is there continuity?

YES - Replace CMP (TDC) sensor A/B.

NO - Go to step 7.

Reconnect the CMP (TDC) sensor A/B 4P connector.
Disconnect PCM connector C (31P).

Zoom Sized for Print

Measure resistance between terminals of the indicated sensor on the PCM connector (see table).
Is there 1,850 - 2,450 Ohm ?

YES - Go to step 10.

NO - Repair open in the indicated sensor wires (see table).


Zoom Sized for Print

Check for continuity between body ground and PCM connector terminals C20 and/or C29 individually.
Is there continuity?

YES - Repair short in the indicated sensor wires.

NO - Substitute a known-good PCM and recheck. If the symptom/indication goes away, replace the original PCM.
