The new part can be defective. I would test the resistance of the sensor using a voltmeter to ensure its still good.

Hi, thanks Lord Vader for the replay, as a matter of fact we pulled the crank sensor for inspection and surprise!!! the mechanics routed the wire harness incorrectly and the fan pulley sucked it up and damaged the wire, unfortunatelly they will cover the new sensor replacement...

Thanks for the replay
