That code usually indicated camshaft retard timing is off. The distributor is supposed to be set at 0 degrees +/- 8 degrees. Anything above or below that will set that code. Usually the only way the timing gets out of specs is when the distributor has been removed and reinstalled incorrectly (usually after an intake manifold gasket replacement job). You need a scanner to read camshaft retard to see how far off it is. If it is at 34 (I think thats the max), usually a fuse is blown. Check the Engine1 fuse and the ECM1 fuse in the underhood fuse block for being blown.
EDIT:Forgot. Also while your at it, pull the distributor cap and grab the rotor and try moving it side to side. There should be little to no side to side movement. If there is any, the distributor bushing is worn out and the distributor needs to be replaced.
