Hello. If the Check Engine Light remained on after the battery was plugged in, then it may be possible that the issue is with the wiring. Faulty wiring or a bad connector to the cam position sensor keeping the Check Engine Light on. I would also make sure that the sensor replaced was for bank 1, which for this vehicle appears to be on the passenger side. If you need to have this double checked, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect and clear the Check Engine Light for you.

Q: I already have spark plugs, do I need to buy the coil as well?

Hi, thanks for writing in. Unless a coil has failed, it usually will not need to be replaced when doing the plugs.

Q: Check engine light just came on.

The P0320 trouble code could very well indicate a bad camshaft sensor. The pinpoint test should be performed before replacing the sensor. If you need help with diagnosis, contact a mechanic for a diagnosis of the Check Engine Light....
