2013 Hyundai Sonata Tire Pressure

On the 2013 Hyundai Sonata, the recommended tire pressure for this vehicle is 33psi. If you find that there is a tire which is under-inflated, fill the tire and then drive the vehicle. The light should reset itself in under 10 minutes. If the light does not go off and you are sure all tires are at correct pressure, then there is a problem in the tire monitoring system somewhere. Very commonly, this is a faulty tire pressure sensor. The pressure sensor is mounted inside the tire as part of the…

2005 Saturn Ion 2.2L P0341 Camshaft Sensor

On the 2005 Saturn Ion 2.2L engine, the P0341 is a very straight forward code pointing to a problem with the Camshaft Position Sensor. This ignition system does not use a conventional camshaft position (CMP) sensor that detects valve train position. The ignition control module (ICM) detects when #1 or #3 cylinder has fired on the compression stroke using sensing circuitry integrated within each coil. The sensing circuit detects the polarity and the strength of the secondary voltage output. The higher output is always at the event cylinder. The ICM sends a…
