Hi : )
I am brand new to this forum and wanted to tell everyone that contributed to this thread THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
It was pretty funny (in retrospect) that I had to take my car to 2 different shops to diagnose the problem with the check engine light on my 2006 GT convertible. Anyway, we were getting the PE0340 and PE0344 codes, which obviously indicate a problem with the cam shaft position sensor. However, replacing the sensors obviously didn't rectify it, so both shops were completely dumbfounded that they couldn't accurately diagnose the problem....In fact, it was kind of amusing that they were treating me like the "ignorant little blonde" that oftentimes occurs, based on my past experience, at least. *When it happens, this is incredibly frustrating.
Nevertheless, this time, it was so rewarding that I was able to find this thread, and the very next day, I marched over to the shop to show them what I'd found. Again, more of the 'you don't know what you're talking about, Little Lady' routine, so I agreed to leave my car overnight again.
The very next morning, I received a very contrite and apologetic voicemail message from the service manager advising me that there would be no charge for labor because they didn't believe me, but, after finding this forum on their own, they finally agreed to replace the alternator, which was indeed confirmed to be the problem.
Anyway, I just wanted to thank you. I will always check this forum first because I just can't tell you how much time it saved me. I actually had been getting ready to go out of town on business and was in danger of having to postpone the trip, so again, my gratitude is endless....: )
My heartfelt thanks to you all.
