    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, is this your Touran or are you trying to fix someone else's?

    You made 2 posts in the wrong sections, I've merged both.

    VAG Error Code: 16725/000833/6039/4113
    EOBD II Error Code: P0341

    Fault Location:
    Camshaft Position (Hall) Sensor (G40) - Implausible Signal

    Possible Cause:
    Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active.

    Wiring/Connector(s).
    Camshaft Position (Hall) Sensor (G40) faulty.
    Timing misaligned.

    Possible Solutions:
    Check/Replace all faulty Wiring/Connector(s)..
    Read Measuring Value Blocks (MVB).
    Check Camshaft Position (Hall) Sensor (G40).
    Check Timing.

    Tech Notes:
    Sometimes and in some models, low battery voltage or a weak starter can trigger a Camshaft Position Sensor code.

    When is the code detected?:
    The camshaft position sensor signal sent to the Engine Control Module (ECM) during the first few seconds of engine cranking is out of range.

    Description:
    The Camshaft Position (Hall) Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Engine Control Module (ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The Camshaft Position (Hall) Sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor. When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change. When the Crankshaft Position Sensor system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.
