Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Ask Your Own GMC Question

The camshaft position sensor should not cause vehicle to stop starting but the crank sensor can. The crank sensor can also cause cam sensor codes because that is what computer uses to verify cam sensor is working. So I'd go ahead and replace the crank sensor at this point. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have questions, thanks.
