Hello and welcome to just answer. I have seen issues where the crankshaft position sensor can short out and "kill" the 5 volt reference voltage which is shared with the cam sensor. This can set a false Cam sensor code. If you have not replaced the crank sensor, then do that and PLEASE! use only Mopar OEM cam and crank sensors. I have been "burned" in the past using after market sensors. Just FYI.
You would connect a volt meter to the center wire in the cam sensor connector and monitor the voltage. It should be at 5 volts. If it droos off when the problem occurs, then replace the crank sensor.
Sorry, let me double check that.
My mistake. It is the Orange wire and should be 8 volts
Did you install a Mopar or after market sensor?
The sensors are not wired together, but they both share the 8 volt reference circuit and share sensor ground circuits. Their signal circuuts to the PCM are separate. What I recommend at this point is to replace both sensors but use OEM Mopar sensors. I think that this will fix it.
Well, I just see issues with the aftermarket ones at the dealer I work at. Let me know how it goes.
