Other than the code, is the engine behaving normally?
was the sensor wiring checked?
do you have any other problems or codes? (related to the timing, vanos etc..)?

One more fault code: 123 activate grid-controlled cooling and oil level lights come on on for 10 seconds after I start engine and hard to start engine and engine stalls when I driving
I did check wiring and I changed sensor which on the picture you sent me

This seems to be getting a wider issue.
Having the oil warnings, i would start by draining the oil, removing the sump and checking the sump for gum build up, clean, and make sure you clean the pump inlet, then put new engine oil and filter.
This should take care of the oil issue (if you find gum in the sump, and if not, the oil level sensor would require checking.
Once we take care of that, we'll tackle the radiator flap (code 123).
