S600 camshaft sensor error after changing timing chain

Hi,

I changed my timing chain on my 95 S600. Now I started the engine a few times, but the engine shakes. I connected a diagnosis software and this shows up a failure on both camshaft sensors. I already changed the sensors with another pair, but the error ist still there. I double checked the chain position with the pins on each camshaft during the reassembly.

Could there a possible slip of the chain by one tooth due to the chain tensioner on the first start? Is there a way to check this without remove everything from the top of the engine to see the camshaft again

Thanks, Kerrman

I knew a guy who were saying something similar. He was insisting that he did the job properly. Yes, he did very well for the timing chain but he made a mistake inserting the spark plug cables to the distributor properly.

I hope you are not like him.

He had also a L5/3 camshaft sensor error? Only because of a missing spark?
That sounds interesting. But I can't explain why a "cylinder misfire" should occur a camshaft sensor error.

I never wrote misfire. I should have written spark plug cables.
Wrong firing order caused the problem.

Thanks for your response. I misread your sentence.
