with a nanocom or similar it will come up with a one of a couple of fault codes.

without.

the engine wont start even though all other aspects prove ok.

you can test them with a mulitmeter when you crank the engine over by disconnecting it, setting the meter to freq count and then hooking up over the sensor while you crank the engine.

Mine constatly comes up with "noisy crank signal"
Replacing the sensor did nothing to fix it,at least there is a spare sensor in the console if it does fail.
I think my wiring is damaged as the oil pressure sensor that is on the same lead to the loom doesnt work.

noisey crank sensor has a few causes

1. arcing from the stater motor contacts on startup
2. earth fault (like you couldnt guess that on a landy)
3. damaged loom
4. dirty sensor/flywheel
5. sensor not installed correctly.


if you clear the codes on the fly with the engine running and it doesnt come back till you shutdown and restart then your dealing with the first 2. if it comes back at random or as soon as you've cleared it any of the last 4.
