Check fuses Nos. 2 & 3

Double check your cable connections

I HAVE TO POINT OUT ALSO P0304 IS NOT A CAM SENSOR CODE. P0304 as you listed is a Misfire in cylinder #4.

**umm, the description/s you give out to the contributors is key to a successful fix.... give us wrong info, and u will get a wrong fix.

Unhappy

Sorry, but NO. P0304 means that you have a misfire in cylinder #4.

For diagnostic purposes, the more reliable basis is the P-code and not the description.

Welcome to the forum. +1, darkhorse is right. I would take a look at your plugs and also your coil pack.
