4th Generation P0330 - knock sensor 2 circuit malfunction bank 2

Hi you all!

I am so happy,


Yesterday i park my car for 5 minutes.
After i start my car the engine light came up.

The engine sounds okay but had no power and i drive with a s/c, so my conclusion was the knocksensor. I drive slowly to the Toyota workshop.
They read out the computer: P0330 - knock sensor 2 circuit malfunction bank 2

&%#%$#%&#$

They reset the computer.
After 5 minutes the light came on again.


So i searched this forum and i think i have 3 options:

- Replace the sensor with a new one.
- Connect the wires of sensor 2 with the wires of sensor 1.
- Connect a new sensor on a metal part (ground) and connect it with the wires of sensor 2


1. Are these all my options and what can i do best?
2. What is the change i kill sensor 1? (I go on vaction to italie with this car, you don't believe it, but the don't have many Toyota's (workshops)
3. What is the risk i kill a new sensor?
4. i read somewhere that GM sensors are stronger:
-Is that true
-How long will they live when i replace the sensors with GM's
-What is the part number?
-Will it fit or must i modificate it?
5. Is is possible to drive without sensors?
- how high is the risk i kill my engine
- How do i disable the sensors without engine lite on.
6.Why superchargers kill the knock sensors?
7.When i replace the sensors they must lift the S/C. I think that is the moment to replace the water hose, sparkplugs,adjust the valves, but also maintaine the S/C.
-What parts do i need to maintain the S/C and where can i find it?
-Are there are parts i also must replace?

Thanks for all your answers!

In reading you post, it sounds like like u have a v6. Then you should have 2 sendors. Both on top of the engine under the inlet manifold.

Hi,


Thanks for your answer.
I have put sensor 2 on 1 and driving now for 5 months.

I think installed the LPG wrong. So i change it.

The only problem i have around 5000/6000 RPM the car is holding back. So i think it is knocking.
So i don't go so high in RPM...i first hope to get the v6 Y-pipe from the groupbuy and then look from there.

Thanks again

i know its an old post but there was a mod that allowed you to run GM knock sensors since the toyota ones are sensitive but from what ive read they have stopped making that sensor.

you should ask stuff like this on solaraguy. theres only a couple people here who are SCed but TONS on solaraguy. i go there for my boost related questions.
