C220D P1227 problem

Being my first post, I'd like to say HI to every respected member of this forum.

I have a C220D '96 car, and after the diagnostics I get the following error:
P1227 Distributor Shaft Position Sensor Y 23/2 | 2
or in german
P1227 Positionsgeber Verteilerwelle Y 23/2 | 2

I am trying to get the description with this error so I can find the part that is damaged and possible solutions.
Any help in this direction is highly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance!

This is usually easier if YOU first give us a description of the problem.......

Are you experiencing a no start condition?

FYI -Your engine was never imported to the US. Is it a 202.121 or a 202.193?

Possible issue MAY be the crank position sensor although this is not a common failure on a diesel in my expirience.

I agree, more information is required, my German is not good at best and my technical German is worse still, but I think it is the camshaft sensor and not crankshaft sensor.

Please furnish chassis number and engine number. Descibe also more about the fault you are experiencing.
