Click the image to open in full size.

On the back of the engine block, in the same general area as the oil-pressure switch. Shown in the picture as #14.

I think you can crawl underneath & reach it from the bottom.

Support the car properly with stands, not a jack. Blood makes such a mess on the underside of the car...

diagnose before you replace it ,,,,,,,,,,

DTC P0325: Malfunction in Knock Sensor Circuit

1. Do the ECM/PCM Reset Procedure.
2. Start the engine. Hold the engine at 3,000 rpm with no load (in Park or neutral) until the radiator fan comes on, then let it idle.
3. Hold the engine at 3,000 - 4,000 rpm for at least 60 seconds . Is DTC P0325 indicated?

YES-Go to step 4.
NO-Intermittent failure, system is OK at this time. Check for poor connections or loose wires at the knock sensor and the ECM/PCM.

4. Turn the ignition switch OFF .
5. Disconnect the knock sensor connector.




6. Check for continuity between ECM/PCM connector terminals C3 and body ground. Is there continuity?

YES-Repair short in the wire between ECM/PCM (C3) and the knock sensor.
NO-Go to step 7.




7. Check for continuity between ECM/PCM connector terminal C3 and knock sensor connector terminal No.1. ( red/blue wire ).. Is there continuity?

YES-Go to step 8.
NO-Repair open in the wire between ECM/PCM (C3) and the knock sensor.

8. Substitute a known-good knock sensor and recheck. Is DTC P0325 indicated?

YES-Substitute a known-good ECM/PCM and recheck. If symptom/indication goes away, replace the original ECM/PCM.
See: Initial Inspection and Diagnostic Overview\Diagnostic Strategies

NO-Replace the original knock sensor.
