    Re: Need to replace CPS

    Problem solved by having the EWS module replaced at a cost of $540 (parts and labor.)

    Need to replace CPS

    Whenever car does not start... the first thing to replace is CPS [cam position sensor or CPS]. CPS will disables everything and engine will not turn.

    1998 740iL ...won't start/crank

    Drove the car, parked for the day and in the evening it would not start; this has never happened before. All lights brightly lit but no cranking or sound from the starter when the key is turned. Had car towed home, checked all fuses, replaced the battery, replaced the starter and checked all wiring. I don't detect any low voltage to the starter solenoid when I turn the key. Any suggestions on the cause of the problems?
