DIAGRAM 1 OF 2: Crank Angle Sensor Circuit
Here's a simplified camshaft position sensor diagram for the 1996, 1997 2.4L Nissan Pickup. This diagram focuses on the camshaft position sensor circuit inside the distributor.
The camshaft position sensor (also known as the crank angle sensor) provides the REF and POS signals that the fuel injection computer needs to trigger the power transistor.
NOTE: The power transistor and the camshaft position sensor are part of the same assembly.
In the next page you'll the power transistor (ignition control module) and ignition coil circuit diagram.
