My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.


The crankshaft position circuit is the electrical circuit for the crankshaft position sensor. If the sensor has been replaced, then it may be possible that the wiring or connector that goes to the sensor is having an issue. If you need help fixing the problem, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect your electric problems.
