What I mean by the circuit is the wiring harness, the connector and the sensor itself. A chafed wire, bent connector pin or shorted sensor or who knows what.

I want to mention one more time that someone with decent equipment should be able to do a proper diagnosis before you change anything. You've got a very complicated machine and all I did was take an educated guess based on the history and symptoms.
Still, you're the only person I've talked to who made any sense out of this mess. Everyone was clueless but you. So BIG THANKS to you again! I'll let you know how this turns out.

By the way, is this the original guess you had made in your first post? I'm just curious.

Thank you.
