Question No start issue help please

I have a 2009 Ralliart. I have owned it for the past 5 years and it has about 130k miles. The other day I came home and went to go leave again and the car would not start. It has a brand new battery (yellow top) 12.58volts when i checked. The starter engages properly and the car cranks over fine. I popped the fuel line to check for pressure, and plenty of fuel. pulled the coils and plugs.... no spark on any ... I then called my friend with a scan tool and it has a P0340 code which stated cam position sensor Bank A.
So I have 2 questions
1.
Is bank A on that code Intake or exhaust ?

2.
Could it be the crank position sensor ? ( i only ask because I did a ton of googling before posting here and it seems a few people with the same code actually had an issue with the crank sensor)

Also any other things I can try to trouble shoot would be appreciated. Thanks

It says for the engine break in procedure to unplug the crankshaft position sensor, the engine will only crank. That is how you prime an engine. So im wondering will it do the same thing if the camshaft position sensor is unplugged or bad?

My guess would be intake.

It certainly could be. Often times when there is a disagreement between two sensors, the ECU will blame the wrong one.

I can't say I recall either of these sensors going bad in my experience.

You could always test them with an oscilloscope if you have access to one.

One other thing is hold a multimeter on the battery while cranking. "Load test" the battery. Just because it is brand new does not mean it's defective. If you crank and the 12.58 volts shoots down to 4 volts the battery is bad. Will crank but will not be enough.
It could also tell you that you have a bad ground too. Either or if that happens when you crank.

Thanks for the input, I ordered both sensors to be on the safe side. When they come I will double check the battery, but I'm 99.9% sure its fine, I've been driving on it for a couple weeks before this happened but none the less, I will throw my multi-meter on there. I do not have the Oscope, so Im out of luck there. I'm going to replace the intake cam sensor first and see what happens. hopefully thats it. If not , ill move onto the other sensor.

So I was able to get the sensor cheap enough that I got both crank position sensor and the cam position sensor. I replaced both of them. on the cam sensor I replaced the intake side. and the car still wont start. Now I'm pretty stumped. is there a way to test the sensors ?

Can you test to see if you're getting fuel and spark?
