Did you clean out the electrical connector on the harness side with electronics cleaner?

Seen some if a lot of oil gets into the harness, there is no way of cleaning it. Better to replace the harness connector. Whats your oil pressure at when hot?

I agree, if the oil has seeped way up into the harness, you may have to replace it. At the Mack dealer I work at, we see this all the time and we have to replace $1400 harnesses.

If the oil pressure is fine, then I don't see an issue. Unless. Disconnect both connectors at the PCM and inspect for oil.

A pigtail connector can be bought at the dealership, Or just rob a good connector from a scrap yard.
