does this sound right???????- locate your Cam Position Sensor and unplug the harness from it. The harness has 3 terminals. With a volt meter, check for at least 4.5V across terminals #1 and #3. Ignition should be on, engine not running. If you get min of 4.5V, then replace the CPS. If you don't get a voltage reading, then start checking all of your fuses. Then you will need to get a wiring diagram for your car and check the 3 wires for the CPS up to the ECM (not fun). If you have a open ciruit in one of the wires, run an overlay. If all wires check out good, time for a ECM. how can a harness with voltage tell me if a sensor is bad? with nothing plugged into it?

It doesn't tell you its bad, first of all.

It tells you that the sensor has what it needs to produce an output or not--the voltage.

There is no actual test for the sensor.

Now, why are you asking this?
