Cam sensor error!

How many cam sensors do these cars have and where is it located? If my memory proves me right, it's located by the cams correct? On the driver side? Why is it giving me a cam sensor connection error? What can I do to correct this issue that says its the connection and not the sensor itself? It's giving me a check engine light and I would like it corrected before I have to do my inspection. Thank you guys!

Well I'm getting these codes: P0013- camshaft position sensor has detected and open or short circuit; P0106 - map sensor vaccum hose off, crack or pressure block. Now I just changed the map sensor last week...brand new from AZ. Why is it still giving me this error? But I would like someone to help me make sense of these error codes as I have cleared them and got these back especially after I changed the map sensor.

No. It's neither tc nor ss. It's a 2.4L SS (sport).

So is it just one map sensor on my model? And can anyone help me on these codes and how to fix them? I've changed out every sensor and still getting these codes so I think the cam sensor connection is throwing off the map sensor. Any inputs?
