You could do as I did. I took mine back and bought a 4-wire sensor. #15717 is a 4 wire (bosch). I bought mine from Autozone, it was about $5 more ($49) than the 3-wire. I also had trouble soldering the wires. I could not get the solder to stick(flow) to the wires. Maybe more heat will help? My soldering iron is an the small side. I used 3M wire splicers (colored red and blue- one wire was larger- according to wire size)and ran the wires thru the bimmer wire channel after modifing its entry point. It seems to work. The light hasn't come on again. I taped it well to try to keep the weather out and tied the tape at the end-as GM does in their wiring harneses.( bound to last a couple of years.)
