Ok, the black wire from PCM terminal (7) to ICM terminal (F)
read> 00.3... So did the cam sensor wire (A) brown/white to ICM terminal (J).
On the short to ground test there was no activity on the meter on either ends .

When you went through the Alldata diagostic procedure was it step 26 that took you to step 30 (replacing the magnet)?

Yes, step 26..while cranking the engine without turning it over the meter read 0volts to 2 and some volts .. I know it did not reach 3 volts..now on step 4...it read with in range. 0 volts to 5 volts.

Step 30, says replace faulty or missing magnet..What i'm trying figure out why would it say "faulty" magnet. Everyone I ask mechanic ,also the local auto part store workers say they never heard of a magnet going bad .

Step 4 & 26 are very similar. They both check the voltage between the CPS circuit at the PCM harness to ground. So in step 4 you're getting 5 volts while the sensor & magnet are not lined up but when you bump the starter in step 26 you're only getting 2 volts. Is it 2 volts while the engine is cranking & then goes to 5 when you stop cranking?

step 26 is hard to tell but,when cranking it'* when I see the meter jump between 0 and 2 volts.. some cranks are less than 2 volt..I have not seen it go to 5 volts.. maybe when I stop cranking the magnet lands near the sensor...step 26 was done with the pcm harness connected.. unlike step 4 with the pcm harness disconnected. is it being done correct, should I try this test again?

Rod..

I see you are in NY.. where in NY are you? We have a bunch of members in NY (small state that it is) that are very helpful.

If you want to replace your ICM/crank/cam harness I have one or two laying around.

I would repeat step 26. If the PCM harness was connected then where was the meter connected? It also seems to me that if the magnet was weak then the voltage wouldn't drop to zero.

That would be great someone nearby..I'm in the city brooklyn.
I was thinking of replacing that harness to see if that is the problem.. I already replaced the cam sensor connection plug pigtail..no luck.

Hey guys,
I was back tracking on the test I did and realized test number (6) did not work the test lamp did not illuminate...does that mean anything?

Yes, it means that you don't have a short to ground. The test light should not light up at that step.
