    2000 DTS - Intermittent no start with codes P 0335 and P 0385

    2000 Deville DTS Has intermittent no start. It has happened 3 times. Cranks over but will not start, after waiting anywhere from 1 to 4 hours it will restart and run just fine sometimes up to a month of trouble free operation between no starts. when it fails to start, the check engine lights comes, each time setting DTC PO335 and PO385, crank shaft sensors a and b. I've heard this a common problem, any one know the end result fix ?? Thanks for any help.

    The fix would be to replace both CKP sensors. Google "Cadillacforums Northstar CKP replacement", or check the tech tips section.

    Been there, done that. GM had a bad supplier from 2000-2003. Replace both sensors and your problems will disappear.
    You'll need to remove the oil filter adapter to get access. Not much room down there. You'll need a long extension and a universal joint.
