SOURCE: Check Engine Light 1996 Nissan Maxima

There is a silver box underneath the center console, just to the right of the gas pedal.

Pull off the plastic cover (it has two plastic fasteners. It will go back on).

Peel back the plastic film covering the screw.

Put the key in and turn the ignition switch on, but do not strt the car (all the warning indicator lights should go on).

Turn the screw all the way clockwise for two or three seconds and turn turn it back. Repeat just to be sure.

Turn the key off. When you turn the key back on the Check Engine light should be off.

Replace the plastic film over the screw and replace the plastic panel.

The knock sensor is a major pain in the a..s to change I would suggest taking it to a reputable shop for a second opinion to see if they realy performed the work. Also with OBD11 (2) diagnostics if you have multiple misfires its not the wires its something else, also if you got a code for a misfire it would be specific as to which cylinder is misfiring. My best guess would be to get your coil checked.

Your knock sensor is located Under the hood, center, front engine area, below intake manifold, mounted on block.


A defective knock sensor may cause engine detonation or reduced spark advance and fuel economy. When a knock sensor is removed and replaced, the sensor must be tightened to its specified torque. If the knock sensor is installed tighter than it should be, it may become too sensitive and provide an excessively high voltage signal, resulting in more spark ****** than required. When the knock sensor is installed looser than it should be, the knock sensor signal will be lower than normal, resulting in engine detonation.

To replace the knock sensor:

  • Disconnect the knock sensor wiring connector.
  • Then, unscrew the sensor.
  • Remove the knock sensor.
  • Reverse the procedures to install the part.

95 nissan maxima 3.0. have replaced knock sensor


I would have the charging system checked for over-voltage and AC ripple. There maybe a hidden wire harness problem if the charging system is okay. Wiggle test the wire harness while the engine is running to help locate the problem area. That is way to many parts replaced.
