The code that you are referring to typically means there is an electrical problem in the crankshaft position sensor circuit. The issue is not necessarily the sensor itself and thus the output of the sensor must be viewed on a scan tool prior to any decision to replace it. The problem could be a short or open in the wiring harness, a damaged signal plate, or even a weak battery. On this vehicle there is no re-learn procedure. Once you drive the vehicle the ECM automatically integrates the output of the sensor. You can try erasing the code and driving the car to see if the Check Engine Light stays off. If it doesn’t, the output of the sensor should be viewed on a scan tool and the integrity of the circuit should be checked.
