06 CS with 74500 miles

Kind of a weird situation and I'm stuck.

Noticed cam cover sweating oil around sensor seals. Did a bit of research and visual inspection and decided to replace both camshaft solenoids.

Ended up triggering code P0020 - A Camshaft Position Actuator A Control Circuit/Open Bank 2.

Reset the code but now it comes on every time I start the engine.

Has anyone run across something similar or able to venture a guess why?

Just a guess. Have you checked that the connectors are seated and that the contacts aren't bent or pushed out?
Check and Check.

Just ordered a new cam position sensor. Was around $35 so worth giving it a shot.

did this work ?
So cam position sensor shipment got delayed. Finally received it and was able to work on the car last weekend.

Noticed right away that the metal clip on the sensor that plugs into the variocam solenoid actuator is missing and the sensor is hanging around, barely making contact. Was able to replace the metal clip and confirmed sensor is attached securely.

Reset the code and put about 250 miles on the car. Code hasnt come back.
