Bad news is your knock sensor is under the intake manifold. The good news is this is a fairly easy fix as far as removing the intake goes. I assume you have the 5.3 engine? In the many cases where i have replaced the little sensors the best thing to do is replace them both while you are under there along with the harness that connects them to wiring on top of the engine and put a dam of silicone around the sensor boot so that they dont go bad again because the main cause of failure for these sensors is water intrusion into the little hole in the intake valley where they reside. Thanks for using fixya!! best of luck!!

Where is heater relay switch on 2003 chevy avalance

This may be the same problem already posted. If the fan doesn't work, a LIKELY problem is the thermal fuse on the fan speed resistor has opened. You can either replace the whole resistor which is in the air plenum to be cooled by airflow, or you can replace the thermal safety fuse on the resistor that is a two lead device suspended on two protrusions above the resistor. Search Gooogle for 2003 chevy avalance heater resistor for photos of the device.
