2001 3.0 trouble code p1309

Had a mechanic change my camshaft synchronizer because it was squeaking. Truck never ran right . Gave up on him, didn't know what he was doing. Bought an alignment tool and aligned it myself. The truck instantly ran like new. Check enguine light went out. tried to get a sticker, tech tells me I am getting a p1309 code. I checked on line and that code is directly related to the camshaft positioning switch, crankshaft positioning switch, and a couple others. I tried aligning syncronizer again, even moving it a notch in both directions, and I know that it is aligned properly. I also read that there is two different syncronizers that some aftermarket autoparts stores list. I am stumped, and was hoping that before I spend even more money with a new mechanic I don't know, someone out here can help me. I have always gotten excellent info on this site, and asking for help once again. Thanks. HELP!!!!!!!!!!

I am a complete noob at this crap but is there a sensor for this problem. Is it possible that everything in respect to cam timing is spot on but the sensor is crap? so therefore faulty reading. once again idk

Yes, I cleared the code, twenty miles later the code is back. One thing through all this, I did not test the cam sensor switch itself. I am going out to do that now.
