The Nissan gurus put the knock sensor on the car for a reason. Unfortunately it uses the engine block for the ground and only one wire of the two in the harness is live. The knock sensor is not the easiest piece of equipment to get to so many people either live with the knock sensor being bad or bypass it. Once you get to the sensor, you can clean the engine block and the bottom of the sensor and reinstall. That cures the problem in many cases. The most effective safe way to fix the knock sensor is to replace it. If you want to take your chances you can research knock sensor bypass in your favorite search engine. There are a lot of articles with step by step directions so I doubt the procedure needs to be repeated here.

How do you bypass 1994 Toyota 4Runner SR5 knock sensor?

It is definitely not a good idea to bypass the sensor. If you have the 22re engine, then replacing the sensor or the wiring is trivial. Not so on the 3vze. The sensor is located under the upper and lower intake. So, for a quick bypass you can buy a new sensor and attach it to one of the engine mounts (there should be one on the drivers side, a couple of inches from the wiring harness). You can either drill through the mount, or bolt the sensor inside the loop of the hook. Note, this is a very temporary "fix". In this location, the sensor will not be able to perform its job. Be warned!
