P0236 and P0470

These two codes show up...I recently have to replace Cam Shaft Sensor - We have a pretty good ice storm not long ago and was not able to keep pick-up plugged in...could that effect fuel system? I have not been too good on my truck this winter but hoping it's tough. I may have made a big mistake leaving it out in the cold alone.

Anyway...I have noticed a slugglish exhaust sound. Today it would not start - dead battery. POOP Nice C-NOte!

Thanks for any help/advice. I am a smart girl and can do things for myself if I have a little direction.

Exhaust back pressure - what is first thing to check to fix that problem?

I assume the 0236 code is probably not a huge concern right now...

What about leaving my truck unplugged at night? I only drive it 1 or 2 times a week and it always starts but seems that the exhaust issue may be related. Thanks for your help.

If the glow plug system is good it should start fine in below freezing weather even if it hasn't been plugged in or run for days, it will just idle rough and sound like crap for a few minutes. It costs a lot of money to leave it plugged in, kinda like leaving 15-20 lights on in the house all the time. Do you have any mods or is it stock? Try clearing the codes and see if any come back.
