  50. Code P0340, camshaft signal causes

    Got the engine light on, not the spanner one. Reading the codes gives P0340, engine z12xe What are the common causes for this? sensor itself? or wiring? or anything else? Why would the engine light come on for the camshaft sensor? I thought that was emission related now.
