    I have a 1988 Buick Park Ave with the 3800 engine. Error code 26 is coming up which is Quad Driver Circuit. Also the cam sensor cose #41 is also showing up. I will be changing out that sensor tomorrow.

    Does the cam sensor alert have any connection with the Quad Driver Circuit error ?

    Found the problem with the 3800 engine. The cam has a magnite that is inserted in the cam shaft gear and the timing chain has a spring loaded tentioner that is suppose to keep pressure against the chain at all times.

    The tentioner had completely worn away and the magnite was almost gone as well. Without these two parts the cam senser would not pick up the correct signal to send to the computer.

    In the process of replacing timing chain and gears set as well as tentioner and cam magnite.
