Nope. I've been involved with2 CPS failures but replacing the sensor itself fixed the problem instantly both times. That having been said a bad connector would be just as terminal. The CS is not an intelligent sensor, it is a hall effect device that outputs an analog signal to the ECU where the signal is squared up and interpreted.
I've used one as the sensor on an anchor winch chain counter!
