Have you checked wiring to the sensor? Might want to examine mounting of the sensor. It needs to have a close tolerance to the ring gear. Possibly check ring gear for issues.

Mr. Brett is right
I had the same error, and after i bought the sensor, the problem was with the wirings !

Can you give me Mr. Brett a picture or the scientefic name of a gear Ring to check it .
And thanks for everything

Sensor mounting and ring gear looks ok. Might be the EZL who is burning the crankshaft sensor ??? Dont know how much power EZL is sending to the Crankshaft sensor,.....

Yeah, could be the EZL as well. I would think you'd want to rule out wiring before buying an EZL.

I don't have pictures. The ring gear is the big gear mounted to the engine output shaft that the starter engages to start the engine. The teeth on this gear are used by the crankshaft position sensor (CPS) to sense the rotation of the crankshaft. At one particular position, there are 2 teeth missing on the gear. These missing teeth mark top dead center for cylinder #1. The CPS senses the missing teeth, and the computer uses this information to time the engine spark properly.

Wiring looks ok. The car has lived his life in the garage,..used only 4-5 times a year,..its a old car but it looks like a new. No damage-codes on the EZL, but maybe its broken anyway ??? Do a broken EZL always give a fault-code ?
