so you have had to replace these on your truck? Is it common for them the fail?

I just got the code Error P0345 and my code reader defines it as "Camshaft Position Sensor 'A' Signal Range/Performance".

If there are 2 of them (note it sez 'A' which leads me to believe there's a 'B'), which one needs to be replaced and which is A or B?

Also, does anyone have a picture of where they are or a diagram for "Dummies" on where they are? )

Thanks

A is passenger side. B is driver side. Follow the intake camshaft all the way to the back of the head. Reach behind, you will feel the sensor. It has 1 10mm bolt holding it in place. I don't remember if which one is angled. One is straight, one is angled. Make sure you get the right one.

I know where that one is because of my engine swap.

I found a diagram on this thread...
Camshaft Position Sensor Location - Nissanhelp.com Forums

Looks like I might need to be tripple jointed?
All looks good but which one is 'A' and which is 'B'?

EDIT:
DUH!
Bank 1 = A
Bank 2 = B
?!?!?!?!?

One last question, my Frontier is a 2005 Nismo Crew manual tranny 6 speed. If I replace that bad sensor, will the SES (Service Engine Soon) light clear out? I need to SMOG my hooptie.

After you disconnect the battery to change the sensor, the light will be gone, but the system will not be ready for SMOG. You will have to drive it for about 100 miles before the computer is ready.

I wound up having to replace three sensors. But even if after that I was having problems until I disconected performance module. I wonder how many people with this issue are running some sort of performance module.

I'm not running any performance modules.
I decided to take it into the dealer for the fix. It sounds like warranty will pickup the bill. It needs an allignment anyway as well as a recall notice service.
My frontier has a lift kit like yours and it's a b1tch to get under the hood and you have to be tripple jointed with tools in hand to get to it.

Thanks everyone!
