I have an '02 9-3 Convertible, and the check engine light

Customer Question

Hi. I have an '02 9-3 Convertible, and the check engine light keeps flashing under acceleration. When I stop, no light is on. It gives the code for a camshaft position sensor, but I just put in a new one! These are the codes:
Any ideas? I've replaced the camshaft position sensor, ignition cassette, new spark plugs and filter, and new air filter.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Inspect the cam sensor wiring and connection for any electrical faults.If a wiring or connection issue is found it will need repaired to correct this here.If this is checked and found to be o.k. you may have a fault with the mechanical timing components causing the misfire and cam sensor code under acceleration as I have seen before.The timing would need checked to see if a mechanical fault is found needing replaced.
