I am not finding it in the 02 service manual, but IIRC its on the front of the block, behind the harmonic balancer. There should be a ring with teeth, and a sensor off to the side of it. On my 05 its in the 5 O'clock position looking from front to back.

Busted me...:banghead: 2002 doesn't have a crank sensor... (D'Oh!) It does have a cam sensor located on the gear case just below the VP44... Thank AH64ID you got me thinking this morning... I need to drink my coffee... :lmao:

Thats what I was wondering, so I went to the 05 service manual and couldn't find a pic of it either and I know the 05 has one :banghead: So I wasn't sure... But now I know.

Okay, I found it in the 05 manual.. And in the 02 manual I found where is says the FPCM can control the injection if there is no signal from the Crankshaft Position Sensor.. so I guess it could use one if it had one.

To give the big man some credit, I thought it had a crank position sensor.. guess it uses an internal sensor and the cam sensor for timing. CP3... lots o sensors!

Goes to prove I'm not exact the big man for everything and I'm human and do make mistakes too... (Even more so before the first cup of coffee)... :lmao: If I remember right... 98.5 and 99 had the crank sensor then starting in 2000 it was deleted (someone verify this)... The Cam sensor took over the roll of the crank since the VP44 can detect RPM's and TDC too internally... Then in 2003 it seems to come back for the 3rd Gens...

you are correct on the tears of with and without crank sensors but you cant admit to being human it kills the know it all stigma that surrounds the mopar man. its kinda like when the wizard of oz came out from behind the curtain for dorthy.:nono:

That makes sense, and indicates why it was listed as a possibility in the 02 SM. 3rd gens need them as the CP3 doesn't have the ability to know when TDC is, or RPM's are.. nor does it care since its common rail.
