G35 Coupe dies randomly

2003 G35 Coupe - Auto - all stock

GF calls me on the way to work saying her coupe just died, and all the lights on the dash came on. She pulled the key out and put it back in and it started up normally.

She called me again saying the car is hard to start or won't start at all. She is nervous about driving it home now.

Anyone got any ideas on where to start looking?

Does it sputter like it's struggling then die? Or does it just cut off? Does the car struggle to start up?

I thought of this, but she would have told if she was having to put her foot on the gas.

I am going to plug in my ODBII software and check for codes.

If you did that, you would only get the front clean and not the back. Take the extra few minutes to pull it off and clean it right.

Plugged my ODBII to it and got P0345 - Camshaft position sensor "A" circuit intermitently - looks to be the camshaft sensor.

Which sensor is it, I know there is 2 on the car?

JUST get a new throttle body, instead of cleaning it.

spoolin - when you cleaned your throttle body did you have to do all those relearning procedures for the coupe?

Also does this apply to replacing the throttle body? In infinitihelp, the first two procedures with turn on and off via ignition was easy. The only gripe I have is the idle air relearn procedure.

Any help is appreciated as I will most likely be replacing.

Thanks everyone for the help.
