crank angle sensor (NE/G signal connectors)

The white connector on the engine harness for the crank angle sensor, does it plug into to the top most connector? While the grey one connects to the bottom most plug?

A pic would help! I noticed those plugs fit in either connector. This is what happens when the car's been sitting for 2 years and you finally get time to work on it :P

White (NE) must go on top, Grey (G) must go on the bottom. There should be a colored dot on each sensor to match.

The sensors themselves are interchangeable, but the position of the connectors DOES matter.

The Ne sensor is used to determine engine speed and the G sensor is used to determine top dead center and which rotor should fire. That's why the connectors need to be hooked up properly.

My crank angle sensor G broke, car stuck on the side of the road, it won't start now. Any chance I could switch the sensors and be able to drive the car home 1/2 mile and up a hill? My cheap ebay oil catch can came loose, slipped through the hose clamp and somehow hit and broke the cas. If this don't work I'll just tow it with my truck and a tow strap later tonight, its not far from my house. It just sucks getting it up my driveway into the garage if it ain't running. Thanks

The picture of my car's CAS (including anotated individual wires) that I took for Davin MoTeC M2R install may help...


Please note that the stock designation are NE and G (vice MoTeC's Ref and Sync). Also notice how the retaining bracket has a white mark wherer the "white" NE sensor goes.

No. You will cause damage. Call AAA or a tow truck.
