I gues the quesiton is, how would it have run on the road without the sensor connected. I wouldn't try it though.

Anyway, glad you got it fixed and thanks for sharing the cause.

P.S.: What is the resistance on the new camshaft position sensor? Maybe that can give us all a baseline to work off of since Bentley left it out.
The new position sensor measures 1244 ohm. My local parts shop states that the value should be 1400 +/- 10%. A bit out of range, but works just perfectly.

Crankshaft sensors on the other hand should measure 550 ohm +/- 10%.
