Since having a new turbo fitted, when engine reaches normal operating temperature engine management light comes on at idle speed and goes out once revs are1300 rpm. My diagnostic reader gives fault code 365, cam position sensor, bank1. I,ve checked wiring and it looks ok. Car runs fine, but taking it easy until the fault is sorted.Has anyone here had this? Steve.

If you need a new sensor I would try importcarparts.co.uk I've found them cheaper than dealer prices and quick delivery. Jon

Hi Steve

as above Importcarparts is best place to buy new,they're cost around 85

But you can have look on those too

Just please check which one you will need,on yours STI(on on all STi) are two camshaft sensors

Or try clean the sensor,sometimes this helps,if not you will need replace sensor

As I said, my diagnostic reader came up with fault code PO 365, camshaft position sensor B , circuit bank 1. I fitted a new one today to the rear of the drivers side cylinder head and the engine management light is still on even after erasing the code. Am I right in thinking that there are 3 cam sensors, one under the oil filler cap and the other 2 at the back of each cylinder head? Can anyone help? Thanks Steve.

Yes I'm getting p0365 on my jdm as well, sometimes it takes a while to start, it fires and then continues to crank, car is off the road at the moment having my parts fitted but I noticed it does it more in the cold than the warmer weather, and when I do get the management light it resets the advance multiplier back to 8 on my ecutek monitor, I noticed the management light flicks on high in the rev range If having a bit of a spirited drive

To update this, I fitted a new front sensor today ( the one directly under the oil filler cap) but still the management light was on. I noticed that the multipug near the turbo had water in it so I sprayed WD 40 into it and the light has now gone out. The rain gets into the engine bay much easier since I had a front mount fitted, so I will have to protect the plug better. Steve.

the cam or crank sensor are not on the rear of the engine at all, they are both visible from the front of the car.

The newage JDM have a sensor on the rear of both cylinder heads for the AVCS variable cam timing. Steve.
