Ok that code is for the CYP Sensor. It is inside the distributor. You must replace the distributor sub assembly to replace this part. the part number is XXXXX it cost about $450.00. you might be able to find an aftermarket one cheaper but be careful the quality of the Chinese knock off parts is very poor and they dont last if they even work at all. To replace the sub assembly simply transfer the coil and igniter to the new unit Here is a guide and the index marks for the drive and rotor. If there is anything else I can help you with let me know.
