Repair Difficulty Level: 3/3  What does this mean?

P0322 Possible Causes

  • Faulty Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor
  • Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor harness is open or shorted
  • Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor circuit poor electrical connection
  • Faulty Crankshaft Position sensor
  • Low battery charge
  • Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)

Cost of diagnosing the P0322 code

    Labor: 1.0

    The cost of diagnosing the P0322 code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary widely across the country, and even within the same city. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

When is the code detected?

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
  • Lack/Loss of Power
  • The engine may be harder to start
  • The engine may stumble or stall

P0322 Meaning

Ignition failure sensor is used to check whether the spark ignition is occurred correctly or not and also used to tachometer drive. The sensor monitors the voltage difference between a resistance which is on the battery circuit for ignition coil. When the ignition coil works properly, the electric current through the resistance is detected as voltage drop. This is confirmed for every ignition event with the crankshaft sensor and the camshaft sensor. If ECM detects a malfunction, no ignition is possible, so the engine would not start. If there is no ignition signal for a predetermined cycle for one or two ignition coils, an ignition coil circuit failure exists.
