DESCRIPTION

A flat type knock sensor (non-resonant type) has a structure that can detect vibrations over a wide band of frequencies: between approximately 6 kHz and 15 kHz.

Knock sensors are fitted onto the engine block to detect engine knocking.

The knock sensor contains a piezoelectric element which generates a voltage when the engine block vibrates due to knocking. Any occurrence of engine knocking can be suppressed by delaying the ignition timing.

DTC No.

DTC Detection Condition

Trouble Area

P0327
P0332
Output voltage of knock sensor 1 or 2 is less than 0.5 V (1 trip detection logic)
  • Short in knock sensor 1 or 2 circuit
  •  Knock sensor 1 or 2
  •  ECM
P0328
P0333
Output voltage of knock sensor 1 or 2 is more than 4.5 V (1 trip detection logic)
  • Open in knock sensor 1 or 2 circuit
  •  Knock sensor 1 or 2
  •  ECM

HINT: When any of DTCs P0327, P0328, P0332 and P0333 are set, the ECM enters fail-safe mode. During failsafe mode, the ignition timing is delayed to its maximum retardation. Fail-safe mode continues until the ignition switch is turned off.

Reference: Inspection using an oscilloscope

DESCRIPTION

The correct waveform is as shown.

DESCRIPTION

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The knock sensor, located on the cylinder block, detects spark knock. When a spark knock occurs, the piezoelectric element of the sensor vibrates. When the ECM detects a voltage in this frequency range, it retards the ignition timing to suppress the spark knock.

The ECM also senses background engine noise with the knock sensor and uses this noise to check for faults in the sensor. If the knock sensor signal level is too low for more than 10 seconds, or if the knock sensor output voltage is outside the normal range, the ECM interprets this as a fault in the knock sensor and sets a DTC.
