You Are Not Alone

Myself and one other guy in our club had issues with the GV-1 sensor. We found a broken wire inside the sensor case where it attached to the circuit board.

Both of these units were almost brand new, no crashes and no noticeable vibrations. They also had the heat shrink around the sensor

That's how my sensor went, wire off inside. Seems to be alot of failures with these sensor units. Maybe they should copy the tj idea and only have the actual transducer on the engine rather that a little circuit board. You don't hear of many tj sensors failing.

On my sensors I've removed the plastic housing and encased the sensor and board in epoxy. Neither of my sensors have failed yet after a year.

I've done the heat shrink method, never thought about epoxy inside the case. That would stop the wire vibrating off. Great idea
