Default knock sensors ?'s

Well my friends father is trying to develop a knock gauge to work with our cars. Right now he makes them for GM's, Supras, and some Fords...We tried to hook up the knock gauge in my car and it came up with a P0327 code (Knock sensor circuit low input). Anyone know the reason for this? I know that the knock link uses a seperate knock sensor to read off, right? On my car we spliced off the stock sensor and it read back the CEL code above. Does anyone have the part # for the knock sensor the Knock Link uses? Any insight is appreciated.

Thanks,
Nirmit

the knock link knock sensor is a stock knock sensor off the MY00-01 IIRC...but to be honest they are junk and you'd be much better off suited with a Bosch Style knock sensor widely used on GM's. You can't tap the knock sensor because you will be pulling the voltage that is being created from the ECU...that's why it gave you a low input code.

Jeremy,
That's kinda what I thought. Right now we have a resistor attached in the middle so the CEL doesn't come on. I'll see if I can scrounge up a Bosch knock sensor....know any place I can find one locally? Would Pepboys or AutoZone have one? Also, on Jorge's website it says that he placed his secondary sensor in a pre tapped location...is there a pre tapped hole stock or did Jorge have to drill?

Jorge,
You can these questions too. Maybe I shoulda just sent you an email

I'd like to get this thing working for everyone since it seems to work great for the turbo 6's, ta's, camaro's, etc....Also it will mount into a 2 1/16" or 52mm opening on a gauge cluster instead of a bulky square piece. Price would be much cheaper than the Knock Link....

Here's a link to what they offer

nirmit...you can get the bosch style sensor at pep boys....it came on just about anything that was fuel injected by GM. There is a pre-tapped hole on the back side of the block it can go it, OR you can get an adapted and put it in one of the motor mount bolt holes

Eh... just as useless as the Knocklink, IMO. :-/
