Standing in front of the car (looking at the engine) Bank 1 or cilinder 1 is on the left side. The first cilinder next to the chain.
Cps is on the backside

Cilinder 1 is the cilinder next to the chain. Yes i am sure. Only a month ago dismanteled a complete engine.
So with the Exhaust manifold to the back the most left cilinder.

Sorted.
Cylinder 1 is indeed on the left looking at the mopar pics.

My confusion was believing bank 1 is next to cylinder 1 (cylinder 1 + 2) and bank 2 was furthest away (cylinder 3+4)

NO! Doesn't work like that..

Bank 1 is on the left side of engine when facing the serpent belt from looking side-on. Bank 2 is on the right.

So for this engine, bank 1 is exhaust side, bank 2 is intake side.

Cam position Bank 1 sensor 2 is on the exhaust side... which is the one i changed,... to no avail.

Ah well, least I've learned bank 1 and bank 2. And been educated where cylinder 1 is 🙄

Bank 1 & 2 have nothing to do with cylinders, it is camshaft 1 & 2.

i know that now thanks to above replies. Mind you, i still don't understand why my OBD tool reports bank 1 sensor 2 when there is only 1 sensor in each bank. It refers to bank 2 sensor (r/h side,) as Bank 2 Sensor 1
