Default Cam sensor P0340 code question

We are getting the P0340 code (cam sensor), but the car seems to be starting and running perfect. I checked the wires and they look fine, although I had to re-wrap them for protection. Can't get the code to clear.

I don't mind buying the sensor and I can install it, but there doesn't seem to be an actual running problem with the engine.

Thanks for any help.

Mine did the same thing. It would go off and then come back on but it drove just fine. Then one day headed home things went south. The car went into limp mode but I was able to get it home. Replaced the sensor and all is well.

Thanks Ray...
Looks like I will head over to the dealer for a new sensor! I work out of town and don't want the wife to be broken down...

Thanks again

Might want to get a new Target Magnet while your at it. It's cheap and could save a problem down the road.
