DTCs Set with Vehicle Parked for Extended Period

On some 2017 Encore and Trax models equipped with the 1.4L engine (RPO LUV), the Check Engine light may be illuminated (Fig. 9) and Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0335 (Crankshaft Position Sensor Circuit), P0340 (Intake Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit), or P0365 (Exhaust Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit) may be set. These conditions may only occur on a vehicle with low mileage or that was parked for an extended period of time. If all three DTCs are set, it may be due to a low state of charge in the battery during two consecutive engine starts.

Follow the battery inspection test in the appropriate Service Information using the GR8 Battery Tester (EL-50313-20). If the battery passes the GR8 testing, clear the DTCs and start the vehicle twice to verify that the codes do not reset.

 

If the codes do not reset, do not attempt any additional repairs and return the vehicle to the customer.

 

If the codes reset, follow the diagnostics in the appropriate Service Information.

 

TIP: Always write the test code displayed by the GR8 Battery Tester on the repair order for any warranty purposes.
