Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

So long as the module is receiving correct voltage then its the module, wiring and the sensor. I would start with checking the connector for the sensor for damage and or loose connection.

If still having a problem please let me know what it reads with the sensor disconnected.

Thank you!
- Joe
