I refused to take part and blew the whistle on them to the State Attorney General. Two days later, they had a massive recall nationwide! I would never buy a sensor at the Zone, Advance or O'Reilly. Dealer only.

I've never had a problem with O'Reilly.

I would have to look back at what sensor it was, but I bought it at O'Reilly and inside their box was a genuine MOPAR part, still inside the MOPAR bag, so apparently all they did was repackage the MOPAR part, but it was cheaper than from a dealership.

Exclamation Re: P0344 Code for the umpteenth time

ive been getting the same problem, ive replaced my cam sensor 4 to 5 times just within like 2 months, I noticed another issue of the cooling fan relay, which from the wiring diagram noticed they are on the same circuit. I can reset the PCM and all issues goes away and it may not do it for a couple days then boom, car quits and wont restart till I reset the pcm again.. its driving me nuts....replaced fan, sensors, relays over n over,, same issues come back

Check the wire harness underneath the Pt Cruiser. Sometimes the wire harness drops down and starts rubbing on the axle burning through the wire harness and shorts out the wires going to the camshaft sensor.

Wonderwond has posted the same problem on 2 or 3 old threads at this point.
