P0341 fault...

Post by ba9930 » Wed Aug 05, 2020 6:48 pm

Hi all, my 65 plate Jaguar XE has started to play up with the code P0341 - Camshaft position sensor A Circuit range / performance Bank 1 or single sensor.

I’ve replaced the camshaft sensor and cleared the code but it’s came right back up and again still struggling to start.

Before I take it to Jaguar dose anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Perhaps read a recent post I posted on 3rd August!

I have exactly the same problem appears there might have been a software flash that was treated as a warranty issue H027 that has now expired. I am booked into the dealer tomorrow hopefully it is just software. I too have replaced the sensor. I can reset it, drives fine apart from a few more turns when starting and stop start struggling sometimes.

I will keep you posted.

Mines doing the same, cleared and came back shortly after. Sometimes disappears on its own then will be fine for a short while but always comes back so interesting that it could be a software expiration issue. Nick900 can you please let us know how the dealer resolves yours...TIA

If the software update to the PCM doesn't resolve it, you are probably looking at stretched timing chains, regardless of mileage.

At least better to find that out now rather than when there's a catastrophic engine failure down the line I guess!

Is it easy enough for a mechanic or engineer to confirm?

Where did you buy the car from and how long ago?

The issue is most likely the reluctor ring on the exhaust camshaft moving. It is only press fit during manufacture. A lot of these were misdiagnosed as cam chain stretch or even bent camshafts!

Still costs 2K to repair sadly.
