What you have described as far as engine cut out is a classic symptom of getting water in the distributor. I have had it on the two occasions when I have cleaned the engine compartment and I have seen it many times over the years on this list. Almost every time I have seen the description of your problem it has been after washing the engine or after a heavy rain storm.
It will clear up in as little as a day or last up to a week depending on how much water was in the distributor and the outside temperature. Yours just happen to coincide with your looking at a sensor that was most likely unrelated to your original problem. I would be curious if you have washed your engine or been in any heavy rains lately since this is the best explanation of what I am pretty sure was your problem.
