camshaft position sensors and camshaft solenoid

My 1999 Boxster with 185K miles keeps giving me code P0341 as well as codes for misfiring of cylinders 1 to 3. I have replaced the camshaft position sensors and the coil pacs and the P0341 code comes back after driving for only 5 minutes. Should I replace the camshaft solenoid?

P0341 is the code for an "implausible signal" on the bank one cam position sensor; more often than not, this is a harness issue.

Camshaft position sensor

Do you mean the wiring between the sensor and the DME or something else?

The DME is seeing an irregular signal, could be a short, broken wire, or loose connector anywhere in the harness for this sensor. Without the legendary pin out box, this is going to take a lot of circuit testing to find it.
