Timing problem on 2001 Vauxhall Movano

I erred on the side of caution and had the cambelt changed in my Vauxall Movano 2001 Van.

The first time following replacement of cambelt it started fine, second time was difficult but evenutally started, third time started fine but stalled and now will not start - just clicks.

I get the error message: 'Fault code 1808, camshaft/syncing speed sensor consistency.'

Sounds like a timing problem - could it be related to the replacement of the cambelt and not lining up the timing sensor 100%?

It has started in the past but just seems too coincidental not starting just a few trys later.

Yes. Belt is out of sync with valve timing and camshaft. Back to whoever fitted it for a free fix.
