Did you end up getting a new sensor?

I am disappointed that Malibu does not order a lot of these for people that still have these boats.  Only a few of the model years actually had the sensor but when it goes out your wedge is effectively useless.  Mine went out last summer and I tried and tried to calibrate it but no go.  I could get it to fully deploy but could not get it where I could increase the angle as it never would should it was fully deployed so the control would not let me increase the angle.  If I used a preset the motors would just keep running because it would never register as deployed.  I was lucky enough to get a replacement last June from the link in the beginning of this post but search all over prior to that and nobody had any and most dealers said there are none anywhere so I was out of luck.  For a few thousand dollars Malibu could order a batch of these and at $200+ a pop they could recover their money quickly while promoting good will.  I am not sure if they can be repaired once they go out.  I was able to replace mine then recalibrate the wedge so it is working again.  

I hope you are able to find one.

These sensors are avialable online from Europe.

I looked at the one that you have posted and it looks different from the one that is on my boat. How did you find out that it’s the same?
