Same thing as you had, VCG leak poured into the sensor and connector.

I ordered the sensor, o-ring and the bolt from fcpeuro.
Went to replace it, but for the life of mine couldnt take the stupid bolt out. Frustrated I just cleaned at connectors and the sensor harness with MAF cleaner.

The light has been off for me for almost a week, hopefully it will stay off. Else I do have the sensor, o-ring and the screw handy. But that 5mm hex is driving me crazy. I already dropped one 5mm allen key into the underbelly, I have one more but it just doesnt budge. **** scared to strip that bolt as well.
Damn! Well, at least the cleaning worked for you! I must admit, it kind of worked for me for the first 15 minutes of test drive right after, but the hash driving around 60 came again... I will try to do another cleaning again tomorrow!
