HI Chuck! The cam position sensor is inside the distributor on the quest. If the cam sensor has gone bad you need to replace the distributor assembly as it is not servicable. Before replacing the distributor, take the cap off and make sure the rotor is turning when you crank the engine. If it is not then check the timing belt as the distributor is driven by the cam shaft. If the belt is broken the cam shaft will not turn and you could get this code.The cam sensor is located under the plastic cover located under the rotor button
Try unplugging the cam sensor and then try to start. The cam sensor is on the underside of the passenger head towards the front of the engine. Is is accessible from under the vehicle. If it starts replace the cam sensor. Iffy it still does not start replace the crank sensor and the cam sensor.
The crank sensor is located on the passenger side of the engine block behind the starter. The starter will need to be remove to acces the sensor.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
E31 = Shorted MAP cicuit sensor
E41 = Cam sensor circuit problem
E74 = Intermittent MAT
F31 = Display panels to BCM problem
This is to say if the vehicle is a 1991 Cadillac Deville
Then the Trouble Codes are as I listed above.
For future reference, the F is for BCM codes.
When entering the on screen diagnostics the display starts with one E for the PCM history, then E.E. for current. Same sequence follows for BCM codes starting with one F for history and F.F. for current ones

I have a 2005 and the things that go bad on it is when the sensor goes off then for the intake then where the butterfly is on the intake gets dirty and needs to be cleaned it is the venturi gets dirty and needs to be cleaned and if it is a cam crank then it is the cam actuator that needs fixed you can tell if you take it off and there a screen missing it is a good sign that it needs be replaced and it is on the left side of the engine you need to understand that if it gives you a code that tells you that it is a sensor that is telling you that what the sensor looks after is bad not the sensor
On my 02 Excursion with the 7.3L Diesel, the Cam Position Sensor is located at the front bottom of the engine on the passengers side. There is one electrical pigtail plug that is attached and one bolt holds the sensor in position. It may be located in a similar location on your 05 Ex. I do not know where the crank sensor is located. I hope this helps.
