V6 cranks but not a peep or a pop from it
« on: September 11, 2019, 16:45:45 PM »
Jumped in the V6 yesterday and all seemed OK - no funny idiot lights, cranked OK but it just didn't fire at all. I did the paperclip trick and got a code 19 - crankshaft sensor, and nothing else - but I have since read that you will get a code 31 crankshaft sensor error if its not running (which of course it isn't), but how about a code 19 crankshaft sensor error - is that spurious too? Surely then it would give a 19 followed by a 31.

And where is the crankshaft sensor? Might be an idea for me to check the wires to it.

If the crankshaft sensor isn't the fault, then I have a blank sheet of paper and no real idea where to start, so I am open to ideas.
