This item is located on the rear of the intake cam.
It's held on by two M6x1 hex head bolts, likely 10mm wrench size.
It is very EZ to service.
Need to remind myself codes actually say 'circuit,' so a broken or shorted wire, corroded connector pin could be an issue just as well.

If you wish, you could test the pinouts before replacing, one's a sensor ground,
another's voltage (used to be 8v from PCM) and third's actual sense circuit to PCM.

Part's $35 for a Standard Motor from Rockauto.com. It's common back to '97 for the 2.0DOHC (neon) and all 2.4's, if you want to swap out with a buddy's car just to test.
You can buy a cheapie for way less, I always have spares for nichts, but I'd do the Standard Motor Product unless you're hurting.

All the information you'll ever need... with pictures.

....as Uptown already said, the Standard Motor Product (MOPAR part) is the way to go. We've had owners come back after replacing electrical parts with store bought items and the problem still exsisted. Changing to a genuine Chrysler part fixed it.

Cam position sensor isn't a 'cam tensioner'
Molded in brass spacers, torque is un-critical. Enough to crush the o-rig and not have the bolts loosen. No need to make something simple harder!
You can pull the airbox w/o removing the top on my '01; as one assembly, ~10 seconds to loosen the TB hose.
