Hello Jory

How are you doing? Do you own this car or you are working on this car? As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have it scanned to narrow the fault. I'll be standing by for your response.

Thank you

I own the car and I'm getting a0b4 error which is the no crank no start. I'm guessing it's the starter

This is what happens when your crankshaft position sensor is failing

  • Issues Starting the Vehicle.
  • Intermittent Stalling.
  • Check Engine Light Comes On.
  • Uneven Acceleration.
  • Engine Misfires or Vibrates.
  • Rough Idle and/or Vibrating Engine.
  • Reduced Gas Mileage.
The location of the crankshaft position sensor can vary from one vehicle to another. Obviously it must be close to the crankshaft, so it is most often located on the front underside of the engine. It can usually be found mounted to the timing cover. Sometimes it may be mounted at the rear or the side of the engine.
