I'm not sure how far you've gone with inspecting your vehicle, but the code itself could have different reason for the problem. Always start with the inexpensive route ... like in your case, it could be a dead or weak battery .. or the battery connection. As a programmer, we start eliminating codes from the bottom and work our way to the top. Talk with a mechanic... pick their brain and ask them what route they would take on first. A good and honest mechanic will help resolve the problem instead of braking your bank right away. Good luck! =)

OBDII Code P0368 TOYOTA - Camshaft Position Sensor 'B' Circuit High Bank 1 Possible causes Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection Faulty starter motor Starting system circuit Dead (Weak) battery When is the code detected? The camshaft position sensor signal sent to the Engine Control Module(ECM) is too high Possible symptoms Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) Lack/Loss of Power Engine Stall P0368 TOYOTA Description The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Engine Control Module (ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The camshaft position sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor. When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change. When the crankshaft position sensor (POS) system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.
