Question about 1993 Chevrolet K1500
On a 1993 Chevy K1500 5.7L OBD had code 43. We replaced the knock sensor and plug to it. At time lamp is out and starts fine others it will crank a lot before start and lamp comes on
Code 43 has different meanings.It has to do with the knock sensor, electronic spark timing failure, left O2 sensor failure, and equate code 42a. Ithink that has to do with ignition switch failure. Good luck.

Knock Sensor Circuit Malfunction
What does that mean?
A knock sensor tells the engine computer when one or more of your engine's cylinders are "knocking", that is, exploding the air/fuel mixture in a way that delivers less power and can be damaging to the engine if prolonged. The computer uses this information to tune the engine so that it doesn't knock. If your knock sensor wasn't operating properly, so that it was always indicating a knock, the engine computer's response may have been to change the ignition timing on your engine. Knock sensors generally bolt into or thread into the engine block. This P0325 code may show up intermittently or the Service Engine light may be lit constantly. Other knock sensor related DTC codes include P0330.
