#1 of 5 Check Engine, ABS, flashing cruise light help
Sep 23, 2009 (2:53 pm)
Hi everyone! I've got a 2006 B9 with about 64,000 miles. Just a bit ago my check engine and ABS light came on, along with my cruise light flashing.
After researching a little bit on the forums and couldn't find an answer, I took it into the dealer, to which I was told that there was a bad oil pressure sensor for the right-hand side of the motor. I had them replace it out, and less than 20 miles down the road, the same lights appeared on my instrument cluster, and I took it back to the dealer. They informed me that there was now a bad sensor on the left hand side that would be another $380. I scheduled an appointment for later next week, and had them reset the error.
On the same day, about 2 hours later the lights reappeared on my dash, and I took the car over to a local parts store, where I used their scanner and the car now spit the following errors:
Camshaft position actuator A - Bank 1 timing over advan.
Camshaft position actuator A - Bank 2 timing over advan
Cam/crankshaft pos. correlation sensor A - Bank 2
Cam/crankshaft pos. Correlation sensor A - Bank 1
Camshaft position actuator A bank 1 timing over - advan
Camshaft position adctuator A bank 2 timing over -advan
Cam/crankshaft pos correlation sensor A - bank 1
I reset the codes, and waited another day for the lights to reappear on the dash. Again, I rescanned the errors, and found the same top 5 codes that I listed above.
Is there something more major going on here with the computer?
Thanks in advance for any possible suggestions you all might have...I just hate to keep throwing money at sensors, when it might not fix the problem.

Similar error lights, but my 2007 Tribeca had a torque converter throwing metal into the transmission. Had to be towed in and full tranny and torque converter replacement.

Anytime the check engine light comes on, the ABS light, flashing cruise light and non-operational cruise control does as well.
I have a 2008 Tribeca with a similar re-accuring code problem:
P0335 Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction
P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor A - Bank 1 Circuit Malfunction
P0345 Camshaft Position Sensor B - Bank 1 Circuit Malfunction
The real problem is when this occurs, the car doesn't start. It can happen at the most inopportune time. It starts 50 times in a row, then it doesn't. Goes through the system check, but just doesn't try to start. Each time this has happened, I need to wait several hours (ususally overnight) and then it starts. After it does, I have the check engine light and the 3 codes above.
Does anyone think this is a sensor problem? A circuit board problem? something else?

I think the dealer would be best qualified to sort this out for you.

I had this happen one time on my 2008 tribeca and it was because the fuel cap was not tight. I took it straight to the dealer and the next day the put it on the computer and said it was because of the cap not being tight.It had the exact same thing .... the abs ,the cruise shut off and check engine light came on but it would start up fine.
