    To test the Crank position sensor or cam position sensor, you need a straight pin to insert into the plug. Check for 5V through the plug, then insert in the other side and crank the engine. The meter reading should fluctuate from 0V to 5V. However since the voltage is intermittent you will only be able to guess because it will be changing back and forth and not read either. It takes a scope to truly check it

    I'm no expert, Someone correct me If I'm wrong. but the articale I read states:
    11 No crank reference signal detected during cranking.
    35 Cooling fan relay circuit open or shorted
    I have no idea what can cause em that you haven't already checked. I'm stumped.

    This is copied from the article i go off of.

    11
    No crank signal to computer.
    Fault in wiring between crankshaft position sensor (CPS) and ECM ( PCM or computer ) or faulty CPS.

    35
    Cooling fan relay
    Check relay and circuit

    By that i presume its the cps.

    ok. im waiting til this friday pay to get the CPS.. odd thing this morning happened on my way to work.
    while driving, the jeep shutdown again with no warning, no dash lights on at all.so i put it in neutral to coast off to the side of the road and when i put it in neutral the RPMS went back up and the motor started running again.. it didnt crank or anything just went on as if was already on.. weird!! so it happened one more time before i got to work and i tried to do the neatral thing again but it didnt work so i pulled over and put it in park, fired right up with no hesitation.. the codes were already deleted and this time left no code except 12 and 55... so before i dish out the for cps does this actually sound like the culprit???

    When the jeep is in a no start situation do a dash light check and see if the "check engine" light comes on. But with code 11 i would put a cps in it

    code 12 means battery/reset condition happened in the last 50 start cycles
    code 55 will always show up it means (end of codes)

    when engine dies NO dash lights, NO cel light, stereo system stays playing with no interuption. since ive resetted the codes i still stall and it doesnt display cps code anymore.. just 12 & 55...
    cleaned IAC and tps gives no problems in shifting at all. also everyday it ALAWAYS starts up quick.. never have to crank,crank.. fires up perfect everytime everyday..
    just stalls once or twice a day weather im stopped or steadily driving down the road..
    plugs,wires,cap & rotor and fuel filter are all new.. im stumped???
