Ok, I have a 98 Accord v6 LX. I ran your camshaft sensor test. With the ignition, but not started I get no voltage to any wires. When I had the ignition the resistance between the sensor wires is 1.95 kohms on either sensor. When I test the sensors with the engine running I get .3 volts Ac, and 3.5 volts Ac on the other. Are my sensors bad?


You need to check your repair manual for the for the electrical values for your particular model. Depending on the model and type of sensor you can have even 10 volts in your first test and around 5 volts in your second test.

Make sure you need to have voltage signal with key on engine off test, otherwise, there are problems with the circuit.
