Try your crank sensor that's on the crank shaft or torch converter.

The car should start without the knock sensors, why would you change the knock sensors? They are a piezo quartz generator that rarely go bad. Usually other symptoms of engine faults produce a code that say there is a knock sensor problem. Back to the no start thing, maybe you may have caused a unrelated problem. Bad reconnection or something. Retract your steps to see if you did something wrong

SOURCE: knock sensor code, p0330

The knock sensors either work or they don't. When they do not, the light comes on. All that a knock senor is is a piezo crystal that vibrates at the frequency that is comparable to engine "knock", and sends that yes/no signal to the ECU. There are 2 knock sensors, and both are bolted to each side of the engine interior walls, under each cylinder head. You have to remove both of the intake manifolds to access the knock sensors and their wiring.
Price to pay? My flat rate book suggests 3.7 hrs to change both. 3.7 hrs times your local labour rate, plus the price of the 2 sensors and/or wiring, and the price for the gaskets for the upper & lower manifolds. Depending on your location, you could quickly spend over $500.00.

Look for a lose connection at the crank shaft sensor. This is a signal needed for obtaining tachometer as well as turning on the fuel pump.

SOURCE: car won't start after disconnecting battery to replace alternator

Are you sure you have the battery connected right, Red to + Black to -? The connections are tight? Are sure the new batery is good? I've seen that happen before where the battery is new but dead. Try jumping it from another car or put that battery in another car and see if it starts that car. If you have a voltmeter check the battery, it should be about 12.8 volts, then check while trying to start the car the voltage shoudn't drop below 10 volts.

Try this before you do anything else. Charge the battery up and then after you charge the battery connect a known good jumper battery to the battery in the car as though you are jumping off a car with a dead battery.

Have you had the battery changed since you had the car. Have that checked for a full charge and no dead cells. Always have the air-conditioning completely off when starting the car. The starter takes a lot of amps to turn over and having the AC on doesn't help.

and another reason is the code didn't clear out completely. this tool can help you test the code.

This sounds like there is a dead spot in your starter. The easiest way to resolve this issue is to replace your starter. Many times, if you take a lot of short-distance trips over the life of your car, the wiring inside the starter itself will wear (short trips means starting it more often, causing a lot of wear over time). Then the inner wiring of the starter wears too much, it forms a "dead spot" -- when the starter is stopped at a very specific spot i will not form the magnetic force needed to torn the starter motor. This is a common issue which can be dealt with for a time if you have to save the money to replace the starter. Tapping the starter, or arcing it with a screwdriver makes the inner workings of the starter jump a little, allowing it to move out of the dead spot and kick over as normal, but it is only a temporary fix. Unless you refurbish electronics for a living, it is very unlikely that you will be able to repair the starter on your own, and such a repair takes some time, so you are better off to replace it than try to repair the starter itself.
As long as the starter does not happen to stop in the dead spot, it will work as normal ... but in time the dead spot will spread, causing the issue to worsen. You can keep forcing it to turn with the two tricks you used until you have had the opportunity to earn the money to replace the starter (or until you have a day off to get the repairs done) .. but over time this can cause more damage to other parts of the car, so I recommend replacing the starter as soon as you can.

The knocking and grinding is not a good sign for the engine itself.

If the starter tries to start a seized engine, it will click and not turnover.

The engine may have to be overhauled or replaced with another.

I would try and replace the knock sensor. If the sensor reads a knock or any movement it shouldn't be doing the car will shut off right then and there and then you have to wait a while for it to start again.

I have an 01 malibu, the temp gauge quit working and check engine light came on, battery was dead, I replaced the battery everything was fine, it;s doing the same thing with gaughe and light but starts up


Check the temperature sensor wire, it may have need knocked of or damaged do to corrosion. The temperature sensor should be located on the intake manifold by the thermostat house. Once the rise issues has been addressed the check engine light should go off after the the start up. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help you get your car running 100 % again.
