An update:
We found that the cam position sensor looks like it was arcing. We'll replace it tomorrow and see if this solves the issue.

Nope. The connection thats tells the coil to fire, in the pigtail next to the computer, was loose. We tightened that up and it has been starting great. Took 4 hours to trace it down.

I realize this is an old post, but mine is doing the same thing. You didnt mention it, but wondering if you remember if your gauges stopped working too? And which Pig tail/ wiring was loose? if you remember?

Thanks

Get the battery charged and tested. Bad batteries can cause rough running and false codes.

If it doesn't work properly, look for the service manual link at the bottom of the page.
