Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

Crankshaft Sensor Resistance Connections: Meter (+) → Y lead Meter (–) → BK lead Standard: 376 564 Ω


Crankshaft Sensor Inspection


If there is more resistance than the specified value, the coil has an open lead and must be replaced. Much less than this resistance means the coil is shorted, and must be replaced.

Any tester reading less than infinity (∞) indicates a short, necessitating replacement of the crankshaft sensor.
