Hi, Everyone,

This is my first post. I have 2011 GC laredo (3.6 L Pentastar V6). I liked it very much but the error code P000D showed up 3 times.

The PCM P000D Bank 2 Camshaft 2 position slow response.

The first time happened on Sept. 12,2012 (mileage 9164). The dealer changed the engine oil and cleared the code. They thought the engine oil may be the issue.
(The dealer changed the engine oil at 3645miles/6615miles, this is the dealer I bought the GC. The service dealer is not the same one.)

The code appeared again on Dec 26 2012 (mileage 11468) They replaced the cam-phasers on Jan 22, 2013.

The code showed up again on March 16, 2013 (mileage 12997). The code disappeared on March 19, 2013 (I drove 3 miles per day in these 2 days, from home to oceanside train stations). I left my car at the dealer and they are inspecting it today.

The dealer said it will not affect the driving performance but it is really annoying.

Any idea or similar cases? Any comments are welcome!

Personally, I'd be looking for a wiring fault. P000D seems to be a fairly coarse code " If the PCM detects an open, a short to ground, or a short to voltage" and if you changed the phasers that leaves the wiring or the PCM. Since it is erratic, I'd be looking for a nicked or frayed wire or a marginal/loose connector.

Does the code set if you unplug the phaser ?

Most of the times when we've put the cam phasers on the 3.6's the problem is fixed, vehicle does not come back with the same problem. In some cases we have seen where the code comes back and we end up putting heads on them. May want to check into that. It will and should be covered under warranty still.

What ended up being the problem here? My 2015 GC Overland spit out this code today with 55k on it. Bringing it into the dealership tomorrow morning.
