Camshaft position sensor woes

Hi guys!
My husband and I were travelling from Berlin to Italy in our suzuki jimny (MY 2000, 1.3 litres, 16 valve). She was drinking a lot of petrol and then she started shuddering and the engine kept dying. After searching about...and finding this very helpful forum...we reckon it is the camshaft position sensor. My husband dismantled it and cleaned it (it was pretty gunky) and hoped that it had done the trick. But we only got 20k further and she cut out again. It is sunday and we are stuck near Munich with a quickly expiring covid test. We would love to make it into Italy and then get the new part tomorrow. Any tips???
