Knock Sensor 3 Circuit Range/Performance

The Knock Sensor (KS) senses engine knocking (also known as detonation or pinging) using a piezoelectric element. The sensor is attached to the cylinder block, cylinder head or intake manifold. A knocking vibration from the cylinder block is sensed as vibrational pressure. This pressure is converted into a voltage signal and sent to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM uses this signal to retard the ignition timing and protect the engine from this damaging pre-ignition.

Cause:
Faulty Knock Sensor 3 Bank 1
Knock Sensor 3 Bank 1 circuit poor electrical connection
Knock Sensor 3 Bank 1 harness is open or shorted
Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)

Symptoms:
Check engine light
