Re: Camshaft sensor faulty + battery drain. Megane 2004 1.6 petrol

The entire sensor looks completely different to mine, the wire connecting to yours looks different as well.

Just been looking on another site that has some engine diagrams.

This says the actual sensor is on the other side of my engine!?

Seems like the plot is thickening

Re: Camshaft sensor faulty + battery drain. Megane 2004 1.6 petrol

Well I don't think that is right? there is no sensor on that side of any of these engines that I have seen?

I have a 201 1.4 Scenic with the K4J engine and as far as I'm aware it's almost identical to the 1.6 K4M. Both engines use the same head gasket and cylinder head bolts, same size engine valves water pump and cam belt. The 1.4 however does not have a de phaser pulley so hence there is no cam shaft sensor of any sort.

My GF has a 2002 2.0 16 valve Scenic Fidji this engine is extremely similar to the K4J and K4M. But from our photos the cam senors are different sizes and located slightly differently.

I have repaired both our MK1 Phase 2 Scenic's 1.4 and 2.0 engines after cam belt failure so feel I know them fairly well. THey also fit these same engines in the Scenic II with some slight differences to the air intake manifolds from what Ihave seen.

I do have some sensor where I've marked but haven't been out there and took it out yet.

Tomorrow I'm going to take both things out and do some further research

Would you be able to post a picture of your camshaft sensor if you have one available?

Will be interesting to see what the "thing" is on the right side of my engine is, maybe it's this valve and in the diagram they are swapped around..

The small black sensor on the gearbox side of the engine is the camshaft sensor, the thing on the timing belt side is your dephaser solenoid
