Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on a 6.0 Powerstroke?

It is located at the rear of the compressor between the compressor housing and engine block. With the AC compressor unbolted, push if forward against the fan shroud. This will create just enough room to see the crankshaft position sensor.

How do I fix code P2617?

What repairs can fix the P2617 code?

  1. Repairing or replacing the crank sensor wiring harness or connector.
  2. Replacing a shorted crank sensor.

What do cam sensors do?

A camshaft position sensor is an electronic device that does what it suggests — monitor the camshaft position and speed — and feeds that data to the vehicle’s engine control module (ECM). The ECM needs this data to control how much fuel enters the combustion chamber and ignition (spark) timing to ignite the fuel.

What is code P2617?

Code P2617 is a code indicating the crank sensor return signal is open and cannot generate a signal to run the engine. The engine will not run as long as the problem is happening.

What is Ficm sync on 6.0 Powerstroke?

FICM SYNC. The FICM uses CMPO (Camshaft Position Sensor Output) and CKPO (Crankshaft Position Sensor Output) signals, which are sent by the PCM, to calculate FICM SYNC. FICM SYNC is calculated by the FICM and is the correlation between the camshaft pin and the crankshaft triggers.

Is cam sensor and crank sensor the same?

Cam sensor and Crank sensor are not the same. The Cam sensor is mounted on the Cam shaft and Crank sensor on the crankshaft. Both are used to measure the engine rpm. Typically, the crank sensor is the primary sensor and the cam sensor is the back-up sensor.

Is it bad to drive with a bad crankshaft sensor?

If the engine appears to function normally, as before, it is likely OK to drive it. However, if the engine starts to misfire (you would see a flashing check engine light) then it is NOT OK to drive it all without risk of damage. Diagnostic Trouble Codes can never be used to “directly” condemn parts.
