if unpluging the sensor do not slove my trouble do i have to look further?
Chevy Mechanic: Tim West, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Oh, well if checking the connectors has water damage, replace that sensor. If there is no water damage in the connector, turn the vehicle on. Try driving it a bit to see if you can get the engine light to turn on.
Can you try this?
