I was told that my knock sensor was bad and now that I have the part I'm trying to locate where it goes. Can someone please help me find the location of the knock sensor? A diagram would be a great help

Not that I know of the check engine light never came on. It was starting up fine without any problems then on the same night it wouldn't start. The crankshaft sensors was changed and all the fuses were checked fuel line is clear and the power box was changed still no start.

The pulse is what opens an closes the injectors its a constant power and pulsing ground while cranking and with then engine running. Do you have a led test light?

We have a standard one that lights up to see what has power to whatever is being tested. Is that the type of tester your speaking about.

Yes you can use that with the key in the run position all the red wires going to the injectors should have power. Then the other wires should have a pulsing ground while cranking?

So do you have injector pulse and power to the fuel injectors?From that info I will give more tests. You have no spark that's one reason it doesn't start. Plus we don't know if we have the proper fuel pressure to start an run.I can't test an look at things that's what your doing for me.

For the pulsing ground how will I know if I have it or not? I can get someone to try to crank the car while I'm looking at the wires, but I need to know what I'm looking for.
