P1382 JEEP Description

The cylinder position (CYP) sensor consists of a rotor and a pick-up coil that detects rotor position. When the rotor turns after starting the engine, the changes of magnetic flux in the pick-up coil are converted into pulsing signals to the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM). The CYP sensor detects the position of the No.1 cylinder for sequential fuel injection.
