Hi James. From way down here in convict land a diagnosis is difficult But.....give the TDC sensor ago and see what happens. Unplugging and reconnecting the sensor itself may help as there is proof the connections aren't 100% reliable. Also give the sensor a clean while you have it out and it may just solve the problem.
I doubt the sensor has died as it'd be the first I have heard of one actually dying as it's likely been connections or dirt that's 'killed' them in the past.
