Default HELP! Check Engine Code

Hey guys!

My 2003 pt cruiser has been having some trouble starting up lately. Whenever I go to turn it on it kind of stalls and makes a cli cli cli like sound. The check engine light is on, and I ran a code look-up today and it gave me the following:

P3044 and P3040

I tried looking in the previous check engine code threads and I can't find these anywhere, and i'm not sure if they mean the same as P0304? I am a girl, and don't know much about cars so take it easy on me! lol

my car has only got 54k

THANKSSS!!

The "cli(k) sound usually indicates a low battery. The starter takes more poser from the battery than anything else. At lease 11.8 volts. If you battery has run down or loses voltage while it sits to just below that level, the starter won't have enough power to turn the engine over. Free battery and charging system tests can tell you if the battery or alternator is in good shape. Take it to Pep Boys, Auto Zone, Discount Auto or just about any name brand auto store for a free check.

Sure the codes were P3040 and P3044 and not P0340 and P3044?
P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction

P0344 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent
I don't find a P3040 or P3044...
