Hey there, thanks for the question.

This is not a cam sensor issue in most cases. It's an issue with the IVT solenoid.

Check your oil lever FIRST, because low oil will cause the code. If the oil is fine then then the other likelyhoods are sludge in the solenoid passage, and issue with the cam sprocket, or the solenoid itself.
