Was driving my car and it just shut off and won't start back up and will crank. I pulled this code from the car and was wondering where the Camshaft position sensor is because it clearly crapped out on me.

On the sides of the head, near the back.

there are 2 cams, meaning 2 sensors.

Unplug one and pull codes, and see if cam sensor A shows up as a fault.
Then plug it back in and unplug the other one and check again, just to make sure.

Update: Tried to start the car again, and a loud single pop came from the exhaust like the original problem and still throwing the code with the new camshaft sensor installed. I installed the new sensor into the back left corner of the engine (the back of the passenger side) which is where I think it goes. Could this also be caused by a crankshaft sensor malfunction? Generic sites says this code could also be caused by a failed crankshaft sensor.

I'll do that tomorrow and get back to you. Is there a specific one I should look for or just all of them under the hood and in the interior part of the car.

Does anyone have anything else in mind that it could be? I really need to fix this issue.

Ok I will give it a shot. The battery keeps dying because I haven't been able to run the car and it's below zero here in Chicago. I'll disconnect it completely for an hour and give it a shot. Thanks!

It could be that you just have a bad battery. try to turning off the climate fan and leave the headlights off and get a jumpstart.

The battery is good. I disconnected it and waited for it to reset the ECU. This didn't work. I checked the plug for the camshaft position sensor and the voltage is correct.

Through all the searching around I've done there is a possibility that the crankshaft sensor is causing the camshaft sensor to fail. I have a replacement coming in the mail tomorrow for the crankshaft sensor. I am praying this will be the fix. If it is, it's strange that no code was thrown for the crankshaft sensor.
