CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR OR

2003 Ford Mustang

Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Ford Mustang V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 71000 miles

I recently got a check engine light come on and scanned it and got the code P0340 which is Camshaft Position Sensor. So me and a buddy cleaned it and tested and ruled out the wires. So I came to the conclusion that itd have to be to the Sensor then, but I have read about the Alternator causing the problem with interference. How would I go about testing if this is the case instead of playing a guessing game and replacing the alternator & the Sensor?

The interference gets in by the wiring connectors insulation not being on correctly as long as it is insulated correctly there should be no interference. Try adding a little more insulation, clean sensor, clear codes and drive vehicle around to test?
