Default P0522 code

For those that do not know- (2005 TE n/a, auto w/ 44k mi)
My Cruiser was hemorrhaging oil (see link to that thread below, has everything in it that was done/replaced). They replaced quite a bit and all was good until recently. The engine light is on and is throwing the P0522 code yet again with no noticeable issues and not overheating.
Haven't had a chance to look at it closely yet (stuck at work) but haven't seen any puddles underneath. Checked oil-good, no puddles upon closer inspection.
I know the P0522 code is the oil sensor, low voltage thing.
But I am wondering what you guys think.
I am tired of seeing lights and codes and want to resolve this once and for all, not just for a month or two.


My previous thread regarding my hemorrhaging Cruiser throwing the P0522 code and all the work done to it:
Rear (rs) engine oil leak?

Conclusion to this story.... (hopefully),


Finally got a chance to take it in for this on 9/25/13. The service department concluded it was the oil sending unit (again. Replaced it back in '08 as well) and that is one item that they did not replace in the recent shop visit. So another $100 thrown at the Cruiser.
Yesterday on my way to work the oil light came back on, key dance & it was throwing P0522 yet again. Called the service department and he said to bring it in today whenever I could. Brought it in, thrown on the diagnostic and turns out the oil sending unit was leaking/loose. Tightened up and reset computer.
Drive home was uneventful, so hopefully everything is all and well for quite a while now.
