P0080 help

I got a P0080 code (Exhaust Valve control circuit solenoid circuit high bank 1). The car has a motor rattle in the front driver (Bank1) when I accelerate hard at around 3000 rpm's with noticeable power loss. I got 10 ohms across the vanos solenoid). Is there something else I should be looking at?

What reading do you get on the bank 2 solenoid? (Is there one???)

Check the wiring too... this would require looking up the wire terminal/colour etc. on the module end.

Thanks for your help,

I did not check the solenoid resistance on bank 2 because it is covered by the large rad hose. As far as tracking the wires back to the module...I am not too electronic savvy and do not have any diagrams any info much appreciated. Just out of curiosity; the vanos solenoids are only on the intake side but the P0080 code mentions exhaust solenoid voltage high
