Otherwise I am going to start checking for loose connections.
Yes, check for loose connections. Some slush boxes have the speed sensor readily accessible from the outside, some others have them inside the pan - this would be a bear.
But check and see if the pass side vapour barrier is shot. Any moisture getting in there has the potential to mess with electronics.
