camshaft position sensor connector issue Sign In

2004 Kia Optima LX
2.4 Litre engine
54,000 miles

Replaced the Camshaft position sensor and noticed the connector that plugs into the sensor from the wiring harness was busted.

Vibration of the engine seems to cause a disconnect, the engine shuts down, throws the P0340 code.

I've been told the connector can not be purchased independent of the entire wiring harness ($800)

At the present time I have zip ties holding it together with electrical tape over the entire connection.

I never know when this is going to shimmy loose and shut down the engine.

Does anyone have any idea how I can either fix this or replace the connector?

I've checked the junk yards, no luck.

Best advise i have without seeing its location it to clue it in place. I have done this several times in the past at customers request rather that replacing costly harnesses. I usually use silicone. But glue type is your choice. It will be a bit getto either way. Good luck

This is the KIA p/n for the replacement connector and pigtail. Dealer has to order from mfg.
