Default CPS keep failing what can cause this?

Trying to get some feed back from previous post. Have put four CPS on in the last two weeks and still having trouble. Could this be a problem with the sensor port or the cam shaft itself?

first are you sure the sensor is failing and not a issue somewhere else? check all connections first of all. and next time you think one has failed un hook you ground on bat. for a few min. then hook it back up see if sensor works could be a problem elsewhere, check the resistance and voltage in your wires if possible.

Went through four brand new Borg Warner Sensors from Oriellys and none of them would work.....then tried a motorcraft OEM sensor from Autozone and the truck fired right up and ran perfect. To be sure we put the BW sensor back in and it would not work then put the OEM back in and it would work. Did that twice with the same result. After about a week the OEM sensor started stalling.

The connection plug looks good and clean no corrosion or signs of damage. Also felt the target gear and it seems okay. Drove the truck yesterday and it was fine and never stalled.

Thanks for the reply by the way!

sounds alot like my truck did for a while and everytime i changed coils or ignition module it would crank and run for 2 0r 3 days so i was thinking that was my prob. then it quit for good and ended up being pick up coil in dit. causing it all to begin with but for some reaso it would decide to work when i changed other parts for a little while till it went completely out, your welcome to read my post i posted on it cause it had me confused for a while but now its running good, hope you find your problem soon and cheap, good luck keep us updated.
