    car went in for service and cambelt change today and on the way home it has started showing fault code p0341 (Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor A (G40), Bank 1 - Implausible Signal)

    it says on my code reader to check the wiring and the sensor. where is the sensor and wiring and is it an easy job?

    the car is a 2000 a4 avant. 1,8 engine code avv

    cheer

    To check the sensor you need a multimeter youll need to remove the sensor place the multimeter on the lowest OHMS setting then place the probes on the sensor use a socket or something metal and move it back and forth over the sensor (near enough touching) if you get a fluctuating reading its fine as for wiring i think you should see a 5 volt supply to one off the pins then the other should have continuity to ground !!

    If all checks out ok timing may be an issue if it wasnt present before the job was carried out !!

    Hope this helps

    dunno if it makes a difference but it is now very "sluggish" and "jerky" compared to before

    Because somethings not right either the sensor has gone down or timing isnt set correctly !!

    Hopefully it's just the plug to the sensor, it's at the front right hand side of the engine behind the timing belt cover, level with the cam sprocket

    Good shout they may have left it disconnected or nudged it as you dont need to disconnect it iirc !!
