I looked at the plug that goes into the sensor and the one that goes to the harness and looked for a common wire. I found a white/red stripe wire on both and checked for continuity and they were in fact the same wire.. I then plugged the wire into the sensor and checked the voltage..and it oscilated between1.5 and 4.5 mv, so something
is coming out of the sensor so I know it isnt broken. It is a brand new sensor, so its highly likely that the sensor is working properly.
Also, the manual says that is being used as the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors. It has two slots reading two different rings on the harmonic balancer so it cannot be too far away to not get a reading. It would hit the other ring and break, just like it would if it was too close..
Im sure there is a possibility of the sensor being defective and not putting out enough voltage but since its brand new and the ICM that I bought from BillBoost was used, the probabilty of which of the two is not working would have to be the ICM.
