Did you test it with a battery? Did you test the diode? Do you have experience soldering? Take a picture even if you just pull the cover and take a closeup in the car.

I had P0014 and P0024 (Exhaust Camshafts Over Advanced). I cleaned the solenoids with brake cleaner and tested the with a battery. I also re-soldered all the joints. I put the assemblies back in and codes came back after the second start. Frustrating!

After that, I drove the car like I stole it for 2 days. Those codes never came back. Looks like the solenoids need to be primed and fill up with oil.
