Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you
When you attempt to start your car, does it sound normal or is it seem to be spinning over faster than usual?
cam sensor does not control the fuel pump, just the fuel pulse width (injectors). The fuel pump should be working even with a cam sensor code. I would first start by looking at the fuel pump. I would check the fuel pump relay and fuse and also check the power to the pump literally. The easiest way to do it is to jump the relay with a paperclip and send power to it.

see if you can pop the oil filler cap off and see the valves moving when disconnected. If the valves are not moving, then you have likely got a broken timing belt
another simple thing to check would be to make sure that the wiring and connector for the cam sensor are in good condition
I have not seen a problem with the wiring to the cam sensors on these cars, but it does not mean that you do not have one. Do you have access to a scan tool that can read the pid data on the sensor live?
That is correct, yes sir. Then there should be a sign wave for the signal that corresponds with camshaft sprocket position. I would look at the wave form on the solus first and then if it does not show one, start checking the wiring.

connector j1 pin 51
The pins should be numbered on the harness side
Oh, yikes, I hate to hear that bud. I have seen it a couple of times but I consider it to be a rare problem. If that is happening with the key on, then you seem to have a bad pcm
Ok, at least you have determined the low voltage for the cam was just a battery...always cover the basics!
Are these codes new?
