    Make sure that they gave you the right sensor, make sure that it is not bad. Even new ones can be bad. Make sure that the wires are not bad that lead to it.

Code p0325


P0325 Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction
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.
Symptoms You may notice drivability problems including a lack of power and perhaps some hesitation. There may also be other symptoms.
Causes A code P0325 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • The knock sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced
  • There is a wiring short/fault in the knock sensor circuit

P0325 what does it mean


P0325: Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction Bank 1 or 1 Sensor

- Knock sensor circuit short to ground
- Knock sensor circuit short to power
- Knock sensor circuit open
- Faulty knock sensor
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)

Replacing the knock sensor usually takes care of the problem.

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 Engine Control Module (ECM).

Hi, first check the connector on the knock sensor. If the connector looks good and tight, replace the sensor. This should clear the trouble code and restore some power. If the car continues to lack power, check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail on top of the engine. If the pressure is under 40 psi, replace the fuel filter and check the pressure again. If the pressure is low after replacing the filter, replace the fuel pump. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using fixYa.

It does sound like the sensor may be bad, but you also need to check the wiring.

P0325 has nothing to do with the MAF sensor or the throttle body. Are there other problems you are trying to solve? If you have a new knock sensor, the 325 is probably caused by poor connection. Make sure the female terminals in the connector on the car side are closed enough to grip the male counterparts on the sensor pigtail tightly. If you correct the problem, the code should clear on it's own after driving about an hour. If you have more questions, please let us know.
