Ok i will check and inform you asap.
Hi again this dtc shows that there is a implausible signal from right cylinder bank exhaust camshaft but this situation has more than one possibilities before changing the sensor please talk your mechanic to check correct timing first because a strecthed chain or faulty vanos gear can also do this the better way before changing related sensor its good to swap them with other sensor which is same with problamatic one.( i mean you can swap your camshaft position sensors.)
