P0016 and P0017 together-Crank sensor?

The fiancée's 08 Ecotec just had both variable timing solenoids replaced. After replacement, it still has P0016 and P0017 codes. A google search suggests the 2 in conjunction could be the crank position sensor. Does that sound reasonable? It's a relatively inexpensive part, so I don't mind taking a shot at it. My main concern changing it is in the Crankshaft Variation Relearn. I don't believe I'll have access to a TechII scanner (I have a couple friends that MAY have one), so I know that will have to be done by someone else. After sensor replacement but before the relearn, will I be able to drive the car a couple of miles to a shop to do the relearn?

I Replaced both of those and NO relearn was necessary, unless it just did it itself unknown to me....
One tip: DON"T buy then from Rockauto, VERY BAD experience!

What issues did you have with RockAuto? Was it an issue with the part itself or with the service? I've ordered tons of parts from them and not had any issues
