crank position sensor

Hello all !! a little update from my last visit on the forum. I have been seeking info on my 2001 cummins and thank you to mopar1973man for his insight and upon suggestion went back to dodge and asked if they could reflash my ecm because they cannot seem to find the proble as to why my truck has the fault code 0336 which is the crank position sensor and the 01 does not apparently have this sensor but has a cam position sensor that had been married to the crank sensor. still with no answers as to the fault codes being read then and very frustrated with Dodge for yankin everyones chain over this !! has anyone ever experianced this carnage of a merry go round. I appreciate any feed back to shed light on this
Thank you

Check behind the starter on the side of the engine block. The parts books show a crank position sensor for a 2001 but I've read it's only there for factory assembly. I got under the truck and checked my '01.5 & it's just a tabbed hole.

Did you actually see the P0336 ?
You might try going to a chain type auto parts store and ask for a free diagnostic scan.

They just don't know.
Looks like maybe if your PCM/ECM was from another year or truck, it would show up in the identification or maybe it'll identify with your vin, regardless, I agree on your re-flash idea so it'll "think" like a 2001.5.
