I would think it would be just the Camshaft Position Sensor.I looked up the codes and they say pretty much the samething.

SOURCE: P0340 Code Camshaft Position Sensor


The Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor detects the position of the camshaft in order to identifiy when piston No. 1 is on its compression stroke. The CMP sensor is used for ignition timing in the Ford DIS igntion system, but not in the EDIS igntion system. Both DIS/EDIS use the CMP signal for synchronizing the firing of sequential fuel injectors.

On the 3.0L vulcan engine, the CMP signal is generated by a single Hall-Effect magnetic switch, activated by a single "vane" spinning around by virture of a synchronized shaft which is driven by the camshaft. 

The CMP sensor & synchronizer/shaft are located behind the intake manifold (i.e., back near the firewall on a Ranger) on the top of the cylinder block. If you just need to replace the sensor, it is a simple job of unplugging the electrical connector and removing the screws holding the sensor in place. Here is a sketch of the sensor to give you an idea what to look for:

Hi, a P1684 is "Battery Disconnected Within Last 50 Starts". I wouldn't worry about that too much.

The P0340 is "Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction". I'd definitely look into that code. I found a great article specific to the p0340 code - http://www.obd-codes.com/p0340 - it should give you an idea on what to look for, test, replace, etc. Good luck!
