Check the cable for the cam censer under VANOS . From the experience the cam sensor cable dries and desecrate causing a short. Only answer to replace the cable and/or sensor. Good luck.

Either intake or exhaust cam position sensor.

Cost $100 for OEM piece from online vendor. Installs in 5 minutes MAX.

DO NOT buy aftermarket ones, unless you want to do it again a few months later.
