Stalls when warm resulting in a no spark condition.
Others saw shorting in wire harness, repaired harness and problem still exist.

Suspect fault in cam sensor or PCM, Can I do a check on the cam sensor for a start?

Do you
have the same problem?

After about 20 min it starts and runs fine for a little while.
All I get for a code is p0137 o2 low volts bank1 sen2, probably not related.

Ok, I let it run and waited for it to quit, after it quit I checked a few things and found out there was no spark and no injector pulse.
But then I came back to wire harness and jiggled it and car started jiggled it some more and quit again kept doing it and it kept starting and quitting, now I need to replace cam sensor or wiring harness.

Can you post some wiring diagrams of the cam sensor.

Yes, I might have to get the cam sensor it has 8'' of wire on it that could be bad, I replaced the wire connector on the engine side of the harness and there was no change.

Sound like it could very well be the pig tail off the cam sensor. Over time engine vibration breaks the wire inside the insulation so its hard to find the broken wire sometimes.
