Default 2005 XLT 5.4 cam position sensor

Okay, I'm stumped. Check engine light comes on showing code for camshaft position sensor. Truck starts rough and idles a little rough but overall it runs great still.

All sensors have ben checked and and are working properly. Main computer just replaced and reprogramed and now the same code os being thrown. What else could be causing the cam shaft position code (bank 2)??

Default Camshaft Sensor

Have you discovered what causes the CEL to be on.
Mine just came on with the bank2 Camshaft position sensor as well.
I was going to swap the sensors between the banks to see if the problem moves.

just replace the cam sensors. they are like $5 and bolted to the front of the head with 1 bolt. takes literally 2 minutes to change both of them

Working with the same problem here...Check engine light came on for the camshaft position code Bank 2. I disconnected the battery cable, cleaned the terminals, then reconnected the battery cables to go buy sensors. Now the light is out? Why?

I'm having the same code come up. P0345. I'm going to try replacing both camshaft position sensors since they're only about $25 each. After that we'll see. My Ford mechanic (and lifelong friend since we were 3) thinks that replacing the VCT solenoids because apparently that's the common issue on the 5.4L's.

After I did some research I found one guy who kept getting the code after fixing everything else. He took out the cam phaser and set it back by one tooth, thus the misfiring stopped. His CMP2 was firing just a bit earlier than CMP1 and restarting it by one tooth realigned it. Figure I'd add that just in case someone was having the problem and couldn't think of what to try next. But that's literally a last resort option.
