part should be readily available at most auto parts stores, It is virtually impossible and a serious can of worms to attempt to bypass a knock sensor,Knock sensor sends a signal to the computer in your vehicle to retard the timing any time any loud noises are detected inside the engine. It would be much less expensive and frustrating for you to just replace the sensor than to attempt to bypass it.It may be doing its job, if the engine is actually making noises and not need to be replaced.
