Error Code P0014

I replaced the camshaft position sensor, but still get this error code.

Any ideas on what to look for next? As an aside, I used BMW OEM parts.

Thanks for your help.

Tim

It appears there are two CPSs, one for each cam (intake and exhaust). Are you sure you replaced the right one?

Are you certain it was the same code before and after the CPS replacement? According to the Bentley, P0014 is "'B' Camshaft Position Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1)." There is also a code (P0011) for "'A' Camshaft Position Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1), as well as codes for 'A' and 'B' Camshaft Position Timing Over-Retarded." I'd assume the 'A' and 'B' designations mean 'intake' and 'exhaust' respectively, but I don't know for sure.

Did you replace the senso with the OEM BMW part or purchase one from a parts supply?

Agent15 and poolman. thanks to both of you for the replies. I replaced both, and both were BMW OEM. This is a tricky one for sure...unless I got a bad part to start with. Any way to test the part itself?

Well, the test will be a lot of rework. Place another OEM & if code distinguishes, the answer is up.

Examine the plugs the CPS connect to, and flush them out with some electrical contact cleaner. Is the code specific to intake versus exhaust? If so, swap the CPS and see if the problem moves. Otherwise I would suspect either the connector or a bad CPS. As I have learned over the years, "new" does not necessarily mean "good". I have had a bad Bosch oem pre cat O2 sensor right out of the box.

Wow, head-scratcher for sure unless you can find a wiring/continuity issue somewhere. I'm definitely curious to know what happens, since I have a friend with an M52B28 throwing a CPS code as well.
