trouble code 52 knock sensor fault

Postby bebebullet2001 » Thu Jul 16, 2009 8:26 pm

i was boosting today showing off my cars power and i boosted to 7grand shifting before i hit redline in second gear all seemed fin but wen i came to a stop i noticed my engine light on and now i have a code 52 knock sensor fault! anyone experienced this problem before?

i know a knock sensor does exactly what is is call and it picks up vibration on the block but would this effect the way the car drives or be an issue to keep driving it? it seems to drive fine but it seems a little herky jerky wen i accelerate like it may be having some issues but it seems to be fine anyone have any ideas at all?

Your knock sensor is done, you need to buy another one.

The car is running in safe mode so you wont be able to boost until you get a new sensor.
