Hall sensor or engine speed sensor?  I don't have
Bentley here.  The speed sensor fault is always
shown, even with motor running.  You can clear it
but it comes back next time motor is off.  Assuming
it is in fact the hall sensor, I would start by
using that multimeter to verify connection all the
way to the ECU.
