Hello, I'm Cam.
Can I get your first name please?
Sorry to hear about this. I suspect you have a bad connection around the 2 connectors. By that I mean a connection issue inside the connectors or even a wiring issue very close to that controls or reads one of the sensors.
So what I recommend you do is this. Carefully inspect each wire as it leaves the connector on both sides. Check for spots of corrosion, wires that stretch when you pull on them, and pull as far back as you can. I have seen wires with breaks as far back as 3" from the connector. See if the terminals are loose inside.
If you find nothing then clean up the wiring, put some dielectric grease in the connector and see if your issue ever returns.
