Hi,

The two codes seem to be related. The P0325 description is knock sensor circuit malfunction and the P1320 is ignition signal - circuit malfunction.

I'll summarize and then give links on more detailed articles I found. Basically the P0325 refers to the knock sensor and associated wiring. The P1320 refers to the ignition coil and wiring. Check the sensor, coil, and associated wiring.

I found some great articles:
P0325 - http://www.obd-codes.com/p0325
P1320 - http://autorepair.about.com/library/a/1i/bl039i.htm

Good luck!

P0325 and p1320 coming up, new coils, new knock sensor, does not misfire at alll anymore, drives fine need to get check engine light off to pass inspection


After your car has performed enough successful warm-up and run cycles, the codes will clear and your check engine indicator will shut off.

Alternatively, a car parts store can clear them for you with an OBDII compliant scanner.

I failed the emisson's test. I have a 97 Nissan


P0136 indicates a bad O2 sensor. This reports poor emission performance back to the car's PCM (computer)
P0325 indicates a bad "Knock" sensor which would adversely effect drivability as far as performance is concerned. Only way to fix these 2 problems is replacement of the 2 components.

1999 Nisian Maxima and need to know what codes mean?


P1320 Ignition Signal
Signal wire from distributor
P0325 Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)
O2 senor ( The one before the cat converter )
P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
The misfire detection monitor, a software strategy built into the computer, is designed to detect an engine misfire. The computer can also normally identify the specific cylinder in which the misfire has occurred. A misfire is nothing more than a lack of combustion, which can be caused by poor fuel quality or metering, low compression, lack of spark or unmetered air entering the engine. There are other possible, less obvious causes as well, such as uncommanded Exhaust Gas Recirculatin (EGR), flow. When the misfire monitor detects a misfire, it will trigger the check engine light with the specific cylinder number as the last digit in the P030X code. For instance cylinder 1 misfire is P0301, cylinder 2 is P0302 etc. In this case we have either multiple cylinders misfiring, or the computer simply can't determine the specific cylinder, and as such we are left with the P0300 in computer memory.
Possible Causes:
Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect fuel pressure

EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiring
Ignition module or related wiring issues
Ignition related sensor faults or wiring issues

Code P1320 what do it mean


consider your fuel injecter, if the fuel injecter isn't good the needle that allows the spray of gas into the cylinder will stick and will not allow the proper amount of gas fire into the cylinder. that is likely the problem if you have already changed the spark plugs, knock sensor, etc... another thing to likely look at is your MAF sensor. though im pretty sure it might be your injector

Trouble code P0325 and P1444


Nissan code:
P1444 Canister Purge Volume Control Solenoid Valve

Generic OBD II code:
DTC Codes - P0300-P0399 – Ignition System or Misfire
P0325 Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)

I hopes this helps you.
Replace or fix these two items should do the trick.
It's hard to diagnose a car over a computer.
