The most common cause for this code is a open circuit in the solenoid that allows the cam advancer to change positions.
Also the cam gear itself can bind & that also will cause this code.
THIS code is generated after only 1 test & if the oil is dirty(at the end of oil cycle) then you might not even have a problem at all.
