Is that then the failure mode of these sensors? Leakage around the threads
seeping into the electronics on the nether end of the sensor? If so, I
imagine this is how you install said sensors on your vehicles (with Si
caulk) and that you also see a longer than 18-month average life span?
I do know that the sensor as currently in place on my vehicle has been
properly installed up to the gootentight spec.
