    Check the harness connector and see if it needs to be cleaned. It's also possible you bought a new but defective sensor.

    I had the exact same problem last year. It was mainly after the motor warmed up that it would get loose and start to lose connection. I swapped out the harness and could tell immediately that it had been WAY too loose for a while.
