By computer screening I found bad knock sensor and I changed it next day. After changing the knock sensor, car is running more efficiently but still my check engine light is not gone. I am sure there is no problem with the knock sensor as I just changed new. Can I know why the check engine light is still on?

Thank you

Have you reset the OBD 2 system with a scanner? Also, have you re-scanned the system to see if there is a trouble code stored that will identify where the problem is coming from?

Yes I did and still shows same code of knock sensor. One of my friend told me that I may have to replace wire harness of knock sensor and it may be problem but I am not sure. My knock sensor is new and does the wire harness problems shows check engine light with same knock sensor code?

If the wiring to the knock sensor is damaged or corroded, yes, it will show as a bad sensor.
