If the the camshaft sensor has indeed failed, the vehicle will not run, it needs this input for engine timing and cranking idling rpm, ect. If jiggling the wire got it to run momentarily, I would recommend replacing the camshaft sensor first, before buying an expensive p.c.m. As for the fuel gauge, there may be a bad sender in the tank, or faulty gauge. I hope this helps.

What are the probable causes of camshaft sensor DTC?

Camshaft sensors do go bad. They can go bad slowly, so you don't notice the badness until your engine stalls, but restarts, or you get a "check engine" light. They are not expensive or hard to replace.

My 1999 Isuzu Rodeo has the check engine light on, what can be wrong with it? what does it mean?

it could mean one thing or many things. your best bet is to have your comp read at autozone or o'reily auto parts. they can tell you the codes and look them up or you can. i believe they will both do it for free but check first
