The voltage should go to 1-2 volts for a minute or 2 thevoltage is duty cycled to ground by the computer. This can be monitored on ascope or voltmeter that does percentages or duty cycle abilities. After aminute or 2 the voltage will slowly work its way up to about 10 volts. 13 voltsmeans the is no more duty cycle or on time being done by the computer. Thesensor heater is fine. I have seen a few computers get damaged when the sensorheater fails but this normally keeps the computer from turning the heater on atall. Yours is turning on initially but is not maintaining it. The only optionis that there is a loose pin fit at the computer or the sensor or the wirebetween the 2 there is no other connector involved. Ohm test the B/R from thesensor to the computer connector pin for as seen below. IF the pin fits aretight and the wire is good the issue is in the computer.
