Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

This code is for the camshaft reset valve, which is the solenoid that controls oil flow into the variable valve timing cam phasers. This is a circuit code and is either being caused by a wiring issue or the solenoid itself. It will require some electrical testing at the time the code is active to know for sure what is wrong.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
