Under the camshaft position sensor you will find the target magnets. These sometimes get cracked and need to be replaced. They are what the sensor is looking for. If they fail, you will get the same code as you would if the camshaft position sensor failed.

If the computer gets no signal from the sensor it will not put out a spark, so that is why you are not getting anything from the coil.

Check those target magnets. Failing that, it could be a wiring problem in the sensor circuit.
