It is pretty rare for a CAS to fail. It is more likely the crank angle sensor is not adjusted properly or has come loose. Especially if you did the timing belt recently. Check it before replacing it. Here is a photo of its location. And yes, that is a the crank angle sensor in your photo.
This seems to be my real issue with this design is that codes do not always show up in diagnostics from what I have read on this forum. Makes it a real pain. I would much rather gamble, if I was sure the crank sensor was secured, on the coil pack and PTU. Always good to have a spare set anyway even if it proves to be the wrong bet. Plus, it is a much easier fix.
