Default Rough Idle

This is for my 2002 Dodge ram 5.9l Magnum

Previously when I used to splash threw a puddle on the passenger side of the vehicle, the pickup would start to become really sluggish, idle incredibly rough, and sometimes stall while trying to drive. Put the truck in park, and it seems to be ok. Eventually this would go away as I assume w.e was affected would dry up.

Later I found that it was the crank position sensor over the fly wheel. The end of the sensor had worn and the electrode or w.e it it was slightly visible. I'd presume it would get wet, and give off false readings causing the truck to run like crap for awhile. I replaced it and the issue went away for awhile.


Well its returned, and the sensor is only 9 months old. I went and put silicone over the sensor in hopes it it would keep it dry. Didn't work.

Curious if there could be another area to look at. Anything will help! Also the backlight on my gauges quit. Separate matter I'd assume.
