Code P0345

My wifes ses light cam on. It would surge while driveing, loss of power surge while cruising to be exact. It surged a few times without the light. Then when the light did come on so did the slip and vdc off light. When she turned the mo back on after running erands the slip and vdc light went away but ses stayed on. That's the banks 2 camshaft position sensor code that i read. I did some research here and google but I wanted to ask before I start replacing sensors and wasteing money. Does this sound like it would be a sensor? I asked this question in an existing thread already started but didn't get a response. I just don't have money to waste on this thing. It also has an oil leak, PS pump leak and needs the 120k mile service. Its an 03 sl awd

A cam sensor should not trip the VDC or SLIP light - that seems to indicate either an ABS sensor failure or a ground failure. I'd get the battery and alternator tested before proceeding further.

I had starting issues and that code came up.
I replaced both cam sensors on both banks and problem went away.

Ok thanks. She hasn't driven it much and I'm broke so I haven't fixed it yet or even looked at it. I'm thinking its 2 different issues that just sterted at the same time. The slip and vdc light turn off everytime you shut the car off and start it again. Then they don't come back on till the mo gets the "surge" feeling. And even then its only sometimes.

I had the same issues as the OP. I just learned that the camshaft position sensor affects the timing, which puts the MO in fail safe mode. This is why the VCS and SLIP lights are on.
