Are those stock wheels? If so that's a pretty big difference.

This:


And sealed with the sealer from a Quix kit (had it from another car).

Final product:


Pretty good considering they were yellow before.

Did you buy it new? In all honesty I have bought some cheap Chinese sensors/parts in the past and have had them not work at all, new. If you got it from a junkyard there's a possibility it was dead long ago (they tend to go bad often on ZJs).
It was a new one, it also magically started working perfectly on the way to work had a little area of oil drips under the jeep when I or out of work I think it was just what was left of what leaked out. Only time will tell thou
