I have been checking around the icm today and here are some things I'm finding. I found a site that says to test the cps by using an ohm meter and checking the impedance on the circuit from the connector to the sensor. Says you should have 600-900 ohms resistance to the connector. I am seeing an open circuit at this point, no impedance which should me a short or a dead crank sensor. This would be the 7x sensor if I am correct going to the icm. Now how would the car run without this sensor if it is in fact seeing no pulse? Could it run on the 24X sensor without the primary sensor or am I misinterpreting this?
The second thing I just found out and this really is bothering me, is I asked the mechanic about having to do the relearn process on a crank sensor if I did have to change it and the mechanic told me he did not do this! Tried to tell me you don't have to do that. I am beginning to wonder if this is really the whole problem that I am seeing and perhaps nothing else is wrong except for the fact he didn't follow procedure and when it goes into the second mode this is why it is dying? Not knowing where the actual crank position is and matching with the cam sensor when it changes over modes?
