DTC

P0327

Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Low Input (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)

DTC

P0328

Knock Sensor 1 Circuit High Input (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)

DESCRIPTION

Flat type knock sensors (non-resonant type) have structures that can detect vibrations over a wide band of frequencies: between approximately 6 kHz and 15 kHz. A knock sensor is fitted onto the engine block to detect engine knocking.

The knock sensor contains a piezoelectric element which generates a voltage when it becomes deformed. The voltage is generated 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 Conditions

Trouble Areas

P0327

Output voltage of knock sensor less than 0.5 V (1 trip detection logic)

• Short in knock sensor circuit

• ECM

P0328

Output voltage of knock sensor more than 4.5 V (1 trip detection logic)

• Open in knock sensor circuit

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