Now that you cleaned the sensors, loosen the sensors again and tap them 
lightly all the way in. Keep the sensor pressed with your finger and 
tighten, then try. If no change, test the sensors. There should be 
continuity and no short against the magnet or shield. In my case tapping 
did the trick, after which the sensor caps where renewed and all was 
well since.
