replace the cam sensor after you check wiring and connections at sensor...clear the codes and recheck, make sure you use a scanner that gives you a data stream not just a code reader

Mine was also the cam shaft sensor and I paid $189 to replace it at Geralds and then contacted Nissan and after they told me my 2005 3.5 was not part of the recall I insisted there were many many cases involved so I faxed them my bill and they sent me a check for the amount. They were very helpful so contact them!

I would recommend you to replace the camshaft position sensor first that's your main problem right now.
Let me know
