P0342 - Camshaft Position Sensor 'A' Circuit Low (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)
The ECM uses the Camshaft Position Sensor to calculate the angular position of the Camshaft. This information can then be used by the ECM to control Fuel Injection, Ignition Timing and Variable Valve Timing Systems.
This fault code indicates that the value received by the ECM from the Camshaft Position Sensor is either below the minimum expected value or at zero.
It is recommended to check the following systems and components.
