I bought the 2007 SXT new; and drove it for 7 years without problem; at which point the alternator died; the ball joints rusted out and had to be replaced; and now.. the check engine light from hell.

about two months ago; after a long morning of errands; i left the car for an hour before turning it back on; and i drove about 100 ft before it started idling funny and kept stalling out. i was able to get it far enough to get the check engine codes read; and it spat out "Cam-shaft position sensor" and "Oil Pressure" errors

after my mechanic took a look at it, we decided to replace the two sensors; hoping it was a failure of these two sensors.

well, the car drove fine for another two weeks, and then again, it stalled out repeatedly on the way home, and left the check engine light on.

this morning; i took it to the mechanic again, and now he is under the impression it may be a fault in the computer itself;

The engine was running in limp-mode; the oil pressure sensor again, the cam-shaft position again, and an error reading the key.

at this point; i just want the car to run until i can replace it. so here's my question:
Is it possibly i need to have the ECM or TIPM replaced?
my driver's side low-beam headlight is out as well. and it wasn't the bulb.

anyone else have these problems?

Sounds like some serious electrical problems. Maybe check a scrap yard or online for a used ECM for cheaper than a new one. Does your mechanic work at a dealership? Maybe a dealership can help isolate the problem, too. Best of luck with finding a solution and let me know what it was.

It is funny you should post this. I in fact came here myself because I have a 2007 Caliber SXT that has begun shooting random sensor problems. I so not if I should be replacing the sensors or what reads the sensors. It is telling me GASCAP radiator battery non of these have anything wrong it seems to be a sensor problem.

Kimberly, since you mentioned the gas cap, I would start there. A new cap is fairly cheap and there is a sensor to tell if the cap is off or loose.
