long story here so bare with me please. a few days ago my caliber started have issues starting. the starter is turning over but its seemed it wasn't catching fire. it would eventually start after a few tries. It seemed it didnt want to accelerate properly as well and wanted to sputter when idling at random times. Well today it wouldnt start at all. i ran the codes once the check engine light came on and i got camshaft position sensor code p0335. i replaced the sensor and still wouldnt start for me. i can hear the fuel pump come on. i tested my battery and it was bad so i replaced it. still no start. i needed new plugs so i replaced those as well. i thought i might have gotten a bad sensor so i took it back and tried a new one and still got no where. im out of ideas at this point and was in hopes someone here might have had the same issue and had a fix. thanks for your time and any input would be great.

Mission success everyone. The repair manual for the 07 Caliber has the rear sensor behind the heat shield. in the case of the 09 caliber the sensor is locate across from the front one just on the other side of the engine. It was kinda hard to change the sensor due to its locations. i dropped the screw that mounts sensor a few times... thankfully i had a magnet to grab it. after i changed it out the car started instantly and has been having no issues. just thought id fill u in in case someone else like me didnt know about that pesky rear sensor.

Thanks for the update. Since I no longer have a Caliber, I wasn't sure how to respond to your initial query. I thought someone else here might have helped you.

I'm new to this forum and my question involves the camshaft position censor on a 2007 Caliber. Bought for my wife yesterday and she got stuck in some snow at a friends house and shortly after the check engine light came on and got it checked at an autozone. They got the camshaft position censor code. Just wondering if something could of happened while getting out of snow or could have been issue before we got it. And most of this is secondhand information, because I'm at work when I learned of it. Thank You

can you tell me if the sensor was the camshaft solenoid? and part number? i too replaced the camshaft sensor the one on the rights side and still no start.
