At the sensor, probe the gray/black wire with a fine straight pin. Then do the same for the black/light blue wire. When the engine has cut out, use a digital voltmeter to test the voltage between the two pins. Have on board a ratchet and socket that fits the crank shaft pulley bolt so you can turn the engine by hand. With the ignition switch in the " run" position, as you turn the crankshaft the voltage should oscillate between 5.0 and 0.3 volts, 3 times for every revolution of the crank. If that isn't seen to be happening then the sensor is bad.
