Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
I have seen issues with worn cam gears as well as any intermediate alignment gears cause timing codes to set like this here and the engine can still run properly.If you know the wiring is all o.k. on the engine as well as the cam and crank sensors and you have no other issues I suspect this is a worn timing component.
You would need to have the timing components inspected for wear and damage and any found to be at fault would need replaced to correct this here.

Yes,I have seen faulty cam sensors cause this code to set here.In some cases the cam sensors can be an updates sensor to correct false code issues like this here.If you have not had the sensors replaced I would start with the cam sensors as they are usually the cheapest and see if this resolves the fault.
