Thank you. What are some common solutions to resolve these problems?
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 1 year ago.

You are very welcome. First low voltage from a faulty battery and charging system could cause or start this problem so verify the battery and charging system tests good. Check for shorts or current draws if the battery and charging system check ok. Check for bad grounds and corrosion in the wiring harness and connectors. If ok then you could have a faulty VVT motor.
