P0325 is for the knock sensor.

P1105 is for the manifold absolute pressure sensor (MAP).

In either case diagnostic tests need to be performed to rule out faulty sensors or if something else is causing the sensors to give the computer inaccurate information.

OK the sensor may not be bad, you might have a broken wire to the sensor. Or a bad plug, I would by pass the sensor plug - cut it out. Cut one wire at the time and reconect using a crimp on union (bu**) conector. You may also have a timing issue, that a tune up might fix..

A P0325 refers to the knock sensor electrical circuit, not the sensor itself! So check all wiring & connectors leading to the sensor, back to the PCM. Good luck, I found a good P0325 article here -

How do I fix my 2000 nissan Xterra It will start up and soon as it warms up It starts missing and backfiring

if you never fix the problems , and just clear codes it is only going to keep getting worse . missing and backfiring sounds like you have a timing problem and it will only get worse too .

I have a 2000 Nissan Xterra with 2 error codes: PO325 and PO303. What needs to be repaired/replaced?

P0325 knock sensor 1 circuit malfunction bank 1 or 1 sensor, the knock sensor should be check/replaced. You can buy Haynes Repair Manuals at Pepboys that will walk you throught the process step by step.
P0303 is a cylinder misfire in cylinder 3 which may mean it could either be the spark plug, coil or the injector.

I have on 01 xterra-service engine light on-codes P1126 & P0325. I think the battery is about to go,could it be realated to codes? Otherwise what do the codes mean? Appreciate any help

Your battery has nothing to do with these codes. Your vehicles computers have detected a malfunction or failure in the system. This triggers these codes and sets your check engine light. Below I have listed the code meanings and some repair solutions.

P1126 - Throttle Position (Narrow Range) Sensor Circuit Malfunction.

Power supply for the throttle control motor is provided to the ECM via throttle control motor relay. The throttle control motor relay is ON/OFF controlled by the ECM. When the ignition switch is turned ON, the ECM sends an ON signal to throttle control motor relay and battery voltage is provided to the ECM. When the ignition switch is turned OFF, the ECM sends an OFF signal to throttle control motor relay and battery voltage is not provided to the ECM.

Possible Causes For P1126:
- Harness or connectors (Throttle control motor relay circuit is open)
- Throttle control motor relay

P0325 - Knock Sensor Circuit Malfunction

The knock sensor is attached to the cylinder block. It senses engine knocking using a piezoelectric element. A knocking vibration from the cylinder block is sensed as vibrational pressure. This pressure is converted into a voltage signal and sent to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module (ECM).

Possible Causes For P0325:
- Knock sensor circuit short to ground.
- Knock sensor circuit short to power.
- Knock sensor circuit open.
- Damaged knock sensor.
- Damaged PCM or ECM

Possible Solutions:
- Repair or resecure harness or connector
- Replace knock sensor Bank 1 (Bank 1 if applicable)
- Replace PCM or ECM

The P0325 DTC is a very common problem with Nissan vehicles. On most Nissan vehicles the knock sensor is located on top of the engine block.

2000 xterra v6 when it warms up it starts to miss badly, sputter and die. When it cools off it runs fine. I get a knock sensor (p0325) code on th ecomputer.

well i wouldnt place any emphasis on a generic code like this ,they dont always read correct especially on europeon market vehicles ,My first thought is the autochoke temperature sensor ,so when its cold it runs but when it warms up its running rich ,or a O2 sensor heater is playing up

P0325....Knock Sensor 1 Circuit (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)

knock sensor ??? dont think this is refering to the airbag but more like a sensor to `prevent pre detonation of fuel ,check the heater circuits on the O2 sensors ,their the two wires the same colour ,disconnect the plug and see if you have continuity across these two wires ,their are two sensors on this year one before and one after the cat ,not sure what is bank one though so check all four ,cant find this vehicle in my alldata books ,diesel yes i have a customer X trail but V6 petrol i have never seen

Check engine light came on tested with obd 2 reader code p0325 came up indicating knock sensor 1 circuit malfunction ! easy fix?

IF you can find the sensor (and can get to it) it is just an unplug, unscrew (use correct wrench) and then install new one and plug it back in. You will have to get the computer reset after that or the light will come back on
