This weekend I found the time to test a few things.

I unplugged the VCT Solenoid and ran with it unplugged.

As expected I got the P1380 Code for open or short on the VCT Circuit.

I did not get the P1383 code.

This was good news which I believe shows that the timing is correct.

Then i pulled out the VCT Solenoid and plugged the hole.

Figuring that this would give me no codes which it did until I drove it.

I once again got the P1383 for Advanced timing.

So does anyone know if I plug the holes leading to the Phaser would the VCT not adjust?

Also could this issue have something to do with my Camshaft Location Sensor?
