I bought a 1990 na to tt conversion and found that the knock sensor was disconnected. I can’t seem to find where it plugs into the harness. I’ve checked the fsm and there doesn’t seem to be a extra plug where the knock subharness is supposed to plug into. I found a layout on concept z performance for their replacement harness that shows it in a different location than the fsm, but neither place has an extra plug. All of the plugs on the harness are accounted for. I thought about running an extra wire directly from where the knock sensor connects to the ecu and connecting the knock sensor in directly. Anybody else experience this?
Knock sensor needs a shielded signal IIRC so if you do run your own make sure its the correct type of wire. The knock harness connector can fall behind the engine, also it runs from one of the side bundles (again IIRC). if you can trace where it's supposed to come from you may be able to find it or at least find where it may have been cut.
Thanks for the reply. I have the engine out of the car and I’ve been up and down that wiring harness. Without completely stripping the covering I just can’t seem to find where the wire is cut. Whoever did the swap did a piss poor job and just didn’t have the knock sensor connected. So if I’m splicing into where it plugs into the ecu at the 23rd spot on the harness, I’m guessing that since the ecu is receiving a signal from the knock sensor, the other wire going to the sensor is 12v?
There is a cut wire on that part of the harness which I thought was like the egr temp sensor or something. I tested the continuity with where the VTC is on the ecu harness and it turns out that’s what it is. I labeled all the connections on the harness as I was taking the motor out of the car. You just assume that everything is correct. Lol
Thanks everybody for your help.
