2006 isuzu ascender I have a check engine light on. Changed out twice with new sensors and same problem. Also changed crank shaft sensor, changed plugs and wires, and cleaned the throttle body as these codes showed up before. But now the cam shaft code keeps showing up.

Do you
have the same problem?

Check for a bad connection or interference with plug wires.

Sorry if I put plug wires, I meant plugs. Car doesn't have plug wires, it has power packs or what ever their called.

Coils, if the wiringto the cam sensor has crossed a plug wire it will also set off that code. But if you are still getting it then you need to check connections at pcm as well as sensor. YOu could also have abroken wire leading to eitehr pcm or sensor doing ths.

Found the problem, it was the camshaft position actuator solenoid valve not the camshaft position sensor.
