I have a 1998 regal. The check engine light is on. Scan tool says Cam sensor is bad. Previous owner Replaced Cam Sensor. Light still on. I Replaced the Ignition Control Module. Still having trouble. (The trouble is rough idle. Runs great at speed).

Wired from the sensor to the ICM appears to be ok.

What am I missing?

You may be missing the magnet at the end of the camshaft.
