The engine needs camshaft sensor to start but not to stay running.

Test the CKP sensor on the gearbox for a square wave on the White/Blue wire while cranking. Look for the battery voltage on the Yellow/Blue wire and sensor ground on the Black/Slate wire. Look for a pulsed signal on the cam sensor pin 2 Blue/Green wire while cranking. Check for 12 volts reference voltage on the Yellow/Green wire. Test sensor ground on the Black/Slate wire.

Let me know these results.
