      So I was driving around and my Jetta died while at a stop light. I turned the key and after 2-3 sec the car stated back up but the EPC light was on. Drove into a parking lot, turned the car off and back on. Started up with out an issue but now the check engine light was on. Lucky for me I was only a few miles from a part shop and was able to look up the code. While stopped the car died again and started up after 3-4 attempts. Drove nice and easy and was able to make it to the store. The code was
      P0322 “ignition/Dist Engine Speed input Circuit no signal”
      Of course I was WTF does that mean so I had the guy look it up. Their little computer stated “poor electrical connection or faulty CKP sensor”

      After checking the code I go to start the car and it won’t start. Pissed off cranked the engine for about 15-20 sec and it started up however it would not go above 3000 RPM.

      So I take it that my crankshaft sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. Does that sound right?

      Where is it? What does it look like? Is it easy to do? And is this going to cost me my left nut? Anything cause the sensor to fail or are they just junk?

      Oh yeah I have a 2005 Jetta 2.5L with just over 60,000 miles on it.

      ok car been sitting for a hour......starts up fine and able to get the RPM above 3000. EPC light is off but the check engine light is still on.


      dealer wants $200-250 in labor plus $50 for the part.

      If it is the crank sensor on the bottom of the crank mounted close to the engine/tranny, it takes about 30 secs to change it. Unplug the harness, two allen bolts, and reconnect. They do fail, and they don't get better once they fail.

      can you give a little more detail on the location. it is hard to see anything.

      I haven't heard of CKP sensors being faulty on Jettas before but I'm curious to see how things turnout.

      i have searched the forum and found a bunch of older jettas (old body style and different engine) that have failed. guess the 2.5 has the same issues.

      I have the same problem on my car. It happens when I drive the engine cuts off and then back on with the epc on. I turn off the car and back on the the light goes away. I'm waiting for the car to do it again for I could take it to the dealer.

      I did a quick write up of this procedure.

      I was getting the following codes at about 90,000 miles:

      2 Faults Found:
      000802 - Engine Speed Sensor (G28): No Signal
      P0322 - 004 - No Signal/Communication - Intermittent - MIL ON

      I fixed the code by going to the dealer and picking up what they called the crankshaft position sensor. I know when I was investigating this I was trying to figure out what the difference was between the engine speed sensor, crankshaft position sensor, and the camshaft position sensor. The engine speed sensor and crankshaft sensor are the same thing. The camshaft position sensor is different.


      The part number for the crankshaft position sensor is 07K-906-433-B and it lists for $63.03.

      Here you can see the location of the sensor.



      Here you can see the two fasteners holding it in.



      There are two tie down points for the cable. Be careful with the metal one, it will stay on the old sensor and you'll think you lost it.



      This is where the harnes connects. Remove it from it's bracket and disconnect.



      Two photos of the sensor.





      Installation is the reverse of removal.

      I think you solved the mystery of why my car had the EPC and CEL illuminate while driving through a humongous downpour in Florida. That sensor is exposed such that I could see it getting troubled by water intrusion.

      just had CEL and EPC lights came on. I have to yet check out the codes; too dark outside.
      But car is running rough. Dang it, and I have two patients to attend to today.

      were you able to fix your problem by replacing the crankshaft sensor ?
      Im having the same exact problem at 108k miles, to replace the EPC is 1000 plus calibration
      - I dont think you need to perform an oil change to replace the sensor ....do you ?
      Thanks

      If you are having the same issue it is very likely the crank sensor. Its always tough to say for sure because there are a lot of different reasons why things can happen. You should not need to drain the oil to install this part. Should just be the 2 5mm allen bolts that hold it in.

      thanks to autozone for the crankshaft sensor $53 bucks

      Thanks

      My 2005 Jetta 2.5 had this same problem since last week.. I just replaced the crankshaft position sensor and its gone now..

      except the part I got from autozone (duralast i think).. one of the screws broke when I tightened it too much.. but the other screw is holding it pretty well and Im not sure if I should try and remove the broken screw using a screw extractor and put in the one from the old sensor..

      Im just planning to wait it out.. if I see any oil leaks then I might try that route..

      But thanks guys.. I thought this was going to burn a big hole in my wallet.. hopefully I wont have to touch it again..
