Question about 1998 Nissan Frontier
With the sensor replacement it is confirmed that the input signals are not the issue and the fault lies around the main processing of the sensor.
The sensor 's pulses are processed by an OP-AMP inside the dash unit. It is possible that the cluster connections in dash connectors has a fault, a possible dry soldering, bad joint in the circuit of the signal procesing unit.
It is important we need to remove for testing but if a similar pulse can be applied-to the speedo unit , it must work.
This may confirm the issue but you have to decide whether to remove and test the unit or to try for a possible trial replacement from the Nissan repair shop closer to you.
Once confirmed the unit canbe replaced but to make sure that loose joints also are a threat in such intermittent faults, we need to confirm for sure.
I hope this tip help.
