Did you use a factory replacement sensor or an aftermarket? If you used an aftermarket I would suggest that you get a factory one and install it, plus it would be a good idea to replace the cam sensor also. I have had 3 out 5 aftermarket crank sensors fail on Dodge and Jeeps so now I only use factory and so far no more comebacks. HTH
