Under the intake manifold.
There are two knock sensors on a 2004 2500HD V8 6.0 Chevy Silverado. Both of the sensors are mounted under the intake manifold on the engine.
Because there is nothing wrong with it. This is a common code that can relate to a number of components. The knock sensor itself is rarely the problem.
A knock sensor is a low voltage sensor that sends information to the ecm, and then the ecm makes changes in order to try and control the knocking. In my experience all knock sensors are located on the engine somewhere because that's where the knocking occours.
That engine has 2 of them and there both underneith the intake manifold. You can not see or get to them until you remove the intake.
Nothing will happen to the car if you disconnect the knock sensor. It just will not detect a problem if there happens to be one.
There are 2 of them, and they are under neith the intake manifold. You will have to remove the intake to get to them. This would be the 6.0L engine.
You have another problem other then the knock sensor if the engine will not start and run. A knock sensor will not cause the engine not to run.
LS does not have a knock sensor. GSR does have a knock sensor
If it's a 6.0 litre, there are two of them and they are both under the intake manifold, one for the front and one for the back.
It has 2 of them. They are under the intake manifold, You will have to remove the intake to get to them. You can not see them untii you remove the intake.
A common problem with GM vortec engines is that they dont seal the knock sensors very well and moisture gets into them. the fix is to replace the sensor, and build a dam of rtv silicone around it, keeping water out.
The knock sensor detects spark knock or ping.
If the knock sensor failed the CEL (Check Engine Light) would be illuminated and the engine may "ping" or "spark knock" under load. Serious "spark knock" can damage the engine if allowed to continue.
bank 1 sensor and bank2 located under air intake (plenum) on top valley of 03 6.0l 364 gas Chevy engine.
There are 2 sensors on the 6.0L and both of them are under the intake manifold. You can not see them are even get to them until you remove the intake.
Knock sensorThe knock sensor for a 1996 Nissan Altima is located on the backside of the block above the oil filter.But before you go and change it out, run a tank of the best/hightest rated gas you can find and see if that fixes the problem. On my 1995 the Knock sensor is located under the plenum and intake manifold on top of the middle of the block.

Problem with Knock Sensor circuit #1
I don't believe it has a knock sensor.
knock sensor location
The knock sensor retards the engine timing when there is a knock or ping detected. This will make the car a little sluggish. It is rare that the knock sensor goes bad.
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.
A knock sensor is a piezoresistive sensor whose signal is varied by the amount of force or pressure applied to it.
