it could be a wire that's bad. I think a few people have had that problem. it could also be that the new sensor is bad too. I don't know how you check that though. when the light is off sometime see if you can get soemone to move the wires a little and see if it throws a code.

I just posted an entire how to thread on how to diagnose, and repair this issue. Believe it or not, many times your sensor is fine, and the culprit is the connector and/or wiring. Please see my thread. Everything is in there, right down to how to check if your sensor is working in real time. Finally, I purchase all my parts from Auto 7 or

Auto 7 sells OEM parts for Daewoo and Kia. They get their parts directly from the suppliers, who supply the manufacturers. The CMP is Delphi brand, which is the same sensor Auto 7 sells.

But the most important detail missing in this thread: WHAT CODE ARE YOU GETTING? I saw a P0342 (no signal) but there are other CMP related codes. Please post your code.
