How did you splice the cable?

If you just twisted the wires together, they have corroded. The corrosion causes an increase in the wire's resistance, and this would be added to the varying resistance the temperature sensor has depending on its temperature.

So, the best way to splice the wires is going to be to solder them. That makes a more permanent connection that doesn't corrode internally.
