Hello Friend:

Your Anti-Knock Sensor is Located With Hood Raised Facing the Engine Compartment,Its on the LEFT SIDE Right Under your Exhaust Manifold Towards the Back.

On the Engine Block ,You'll see Your Anti-Knock Sensor Wires running to it.

Its a Little hard to Get to but Not so hard that you can't do it Yourself.

Disconnect the Wire Connector, And Take a Good Look at the Wires,Since it Runs so Close to your Exhaust you could have Also some Faulty Wiring going to the Sensor.

Just Un Screw the Anti-Knock Senser and Replace New.

This will get your Anti-Knock Sensor Replaced With A New One Like i Said Look very Good at the Wiring Going to the Sensor.

Thank You: From d_hubbs

Can you please tell me the location of the knock sensor in my 04 silverado 1500 with a 4.8 liter?


The knock sensor should be somewhere on the engine block underneath on the passenger side.

I have a 04' Chev, 6.0L. Engine light came on, fault code came up PO332. I'm afraid the KS's are under the intake. Is there any way to test the KS to see if it is bad, or is there another problem that is...


P0332 - Knock Sensor 2 Circuit Low Input (Bank 2)

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 Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Engine Control Module (ECM).

Causes for P0332 DTC:
- Knock sensor circuit short to GND.
- Knock sensor circuit short to PWR.
- Knock sensor circuit open.
- Damaged knock sensor.
- PCM or ECM failure.

Solutions:
- Repair or resecure the harness or connector.
- Replace the knock sensor.

Your best bet is to just replace the knock sensor for sensor 2 bank 2. Call Auto Zone with part number SU1282 this is the OEM replacement.

The knock sensor looks like this:

I have a 2004 chevy 5.3 liter avalanche and it is making a ticking or knocking sound.It was taken to auto zone and connected to a diagnostic computer,they told me it was the knock sensor.My question is...


Does it only do it when cold? If so, this is "normal." Its b/c metal contracts when cold, and the tolerance of the way the engine is designed causes the "knock" but its normal and not harmful.

No and No...And it's the "MAS". "Unhooking" the MAS will place your ECM in the "limp back" mode...in other words it will run like ****.
Did you try the O2 sensors (3)? These are notorious for failing. Try a cheap fix...Buy a can of "SeaFoam" at Advance Auto Parts ($9) and add to your tank per instructions.
Good Luck

Knock sensor location


The knock Sensors are located under the Intake Manifold at the top of your engine. The top will have to be taken off along with the intake manifold. Knock Sensors in past silverados used to have a problem with leaking water that corroded the sensors from washing the engine. Most times when you go to replace the knock sensor you will have to replace both along with the wiring harness that includes the the gaskets the knock sensors are surrounded by. After that you have to check the resistance to make sure you dont have any problems and then reinstall all parts along with a new intake manifold gasket. A good mechanic can do this for you in a day and charge you around $400. If you try to go to some place like a chevy dealer you will pay over $800. This is from experience of just replacing mine 2 weeks ago.
