Can a cam shaft sensor problem cause a 2002 Chrysler Sebring to stall and not restart?

Yes, it can, but it's probably not your problem. The cranksensors on those vehicles hardly ever fail. Most likely if theengine is stalling while coming to a stop, you probably… have eithera faulty Idle Air Control Valve or a vacuum leak, possibly a faultyPCV hose assembly. I have finally fixed my stalling problem in my 2003 ford expeditionand wanted to share the repair with you, first of all for thesafety of our families, and the cost of everything the mechanicsthink is wrong (even most ford mechanics are not aware of this fix)I have been lucky and never did the coil packs, fuel pump and newthrottle body and valve. I did waste money on the camshaft sensorand IAC control valve; I did keep the old one so I have a back upif I need it in the future. I didn't try the high octane fuel fixbecause I heard of this year throwing spark plugs which are bigbucks to repair. Putting on this part and looking at the old onemakes me think I didn't even need a new one, but didn't know whatto expect when I bought it. The bracket connects the alternator tothe positive terminal on your battery. If you start at the battery+ terminal it has 2 red wires coming out of it. They are bothusually red and about the same thickness. One of them goes into along black rectangle clip that says "fusible Link" or somethinglike that. Then comes out the other side and goes to thealternator. Past the fusible link box there will be 2 wires thatsplit off of this wire. If you are in front of the truck one wireruns towards you and is pretty short. It plugs into another wire.The second wire is longer and it runs away from you THIS IS thewire you need to follow. It runs back towards the battery into aplug under it. Follow this wire from where it comes off of the bigwire. You will find it resting on a silver/aluminum tube (its an ACpipe) Flip the wire over where it is touching this pipe, you willfind the wire is rubbed down to the bare metal! It is randomlyshorting out your engine and you will STALL. If I didn't by thepart I would try to tape it up, tape the pipe it rests on as wellor get some foam tubing for the pipe, if the wires are too worn,looks like you could always use a wire nut.
the 98 to 2000 sebring coupes with a 2.5 has the cam sensor built into the distributor. you must buy a new or reman one the range from 198.00 to 450.00 depending on the model …your car is.
Answer I have a 2000 Sebring convertible JXI v6 2.5 L It was stalling out even while driving at high speeds. I read of three possibilities for this problem. 1. Bad MAP …sensor. I replaced this since it was the easiest and least expensive thing to do. It had little to no affect. 2. Bad Crank Position Sensor. This part was $60 and a pain in the butt to get to. I replaced it one month ago, have been driving the car every day, and the problem has not returned. (Hint: It is easier to see this part through the driver side wheel well. You'll need about a 2 foot extension to reach the single bolt holding this part in place and you'll have to remove the tire and plastic wheel well covers.) 3. Unplug the over drive connection from the top of the transmission. Never got to this one since # 2 worked.
Drivers side of motor, just below valve cover.
When a Chrysler Sebring is stalling it is possible that poorgasoline has been used. It is also possible that the car needs thespark plugs replaced.
Front driver side corner of engine.
Front left cyl.head in the timing belt cover
It is located directly below the distributor. It is on the transmission bellhousing on the firewall side. It is hard to see without some stuff moved out of the way.
You have to buy and replace the entire distributor.
The sensor is under the car on the back of the engine on the leftside on the 2.4L. On the 2.5L it is on the top rear of the transmission bell housing.
2.5L V6, it is inside the distributor and is not serviced separately. 2.4L it is on the driver side end of the cylinder head.
On the v6, it is inside the distributor. On the four cylinder, itis on the driver side end of the cylinder head.

Would a crank shaft sensor and cam sensor cause your 2002 dodge grand caravan to not turn over and or start at all?
A bad cam or crank sensor can cause a no start, but the engine willstill crank or turn over.
