DTC P0343

I changed the sensor and it still throws the code. The car was fine before Maggie got installed so it has to be a bad wire, or the PCM went bad during the tune??? Anyone know what pin# the sensor is on the PCM, and how many ohms the sensor should read wile testing with a Fluke meter.
The next step is to take it to a dealer to get it tested. I want to avoid that because of my mods.

Make sure the rear pulley didn't saw into the harness. :bonkers:

The wire is fine, I was thinking the same thing.
The shop did most of the install.

Thanks, thats a good find! But what is the ohm operating range of the sensor, and what pin# is it on the computer?

I have read the section of the Shop Manual for this error code and its does not seem to give an ohm value anywhere. It does indiciate a 0.2 volt drop across the connector. Basically the multi-step troubleshooting procedure suggests that the code (which indicates a high voltage condition) sets only under two conditions - (1) a bad connection; or (2) a defective sensor. The pin number appears to be 73 (C1) with a BN/WH wire color.

I lived in fear of the rear pulley - zip ties are your friend.
Oh yeah - I'll take Maggie back now!
