Default Crank sensor

When a crank sensor goes out does it go out completely, or can it go out partially?

The sensor can malfunction intermittently.

And often it is the wiring that is at fault - worn and frayed.
Get a Mopar sensor if you are replacing.

There are many posts about people who replaced sensors with no-name brands repeatedly and then replaced with Mopar with better results.
Not all "no-name" brands are bad, and I realize Mopar parts are outsourced, but the odds are better with a Mopar label.

Somebody forgot to tell that old gray one that who knows were it came from. I put back on my 03 pt. After I replace the PCM, that it's no good. That why I don't allow my pt to surf the web. Just to much questionable info. It sure looks like crap though. but like us. That doesn't mean it can't do a good job lol.
