What are the potential causes of Halls sensor failures?  Is there a way to test them?

If the ignition is not grounded the spark goes through the sensor and kills it..Most ignitions are grounded through the metal cap and shielding on the wire if the cap fits tightly...
The wires could be cut or loose somewhere..
Turn the ignition on, it should spark once every time the switch is opened and closed...
If that works rotate the crank, if it sparks with every revolution the sensor is good..No spark when rotated, bad sensor...
