Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. The P0340 code is a camshaft position sensor code. If this sensor is faulty, the car will not run or accelerate properly. More often than not, the P0340 code indicates replacement of the cam position sensor is needed. However, it is possible that there is damage to the wiring, or a faulty wire connector. The recommendation I have for you on this request would be to inspect the camshaft position sensor wires and connector, and, if all good, replace the sensor.
