Eric. Will start at the beginning with this. Wife was driving down the road and the vehicle shut off engine light, tcs,and etc came on and the van was in limp mode the rest of the way home. Put my scan tool on and got cam code and the 2017 code. Replaced cam sensor. Van is still in limp mode with the 2017 code. I have had the intake off making sur the flappers were free and they are. On the drawing you sent #6 should be 5volts which is only reading 2 volts on the van. However #6 is showing the 5 volts and is the signal wire. I'm at a loss it does sound electrical here is the vin hope it gets us further 2v4rw5dx5ar222945. Thank you
