Question Seriously need some expert advice!

Replaced both cam and crank position sensors on my '03 E320. Computer is not reading them! Do I need to replace some part of my computer system? Estimated cost if so and can I get what I need from a salvage yard? TINMAN

Are there codes to clear? Try first with a generic OBD reader unless you have access to SDS.

What is the cars recent history?

What was the reason these were changed?

Are there any codes in the engine computer system?

How do you know they are not being read by the computer?

Have you hung a scope / volt meter on the sensors?

If so, what reading did you see?
