Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Since I was not there to see what you did, I will need to ask questions on the work you performed.

Did you undo any of the harness connectors on the passenger side while doing this work?

no I just cut black wire goiin to old ks and wired up new one directly off it

That is a shielded wire. Did you ground out the shielded wire when relocating the sensor? You didn't unplug any 02 sensors or anything?

it is, no I watched mny youtube videos and they all ssaid wire it up to one of 2 wires goin to new ks
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I did that and the center yellow wire the other wire in connector

Well at this point if you wired it wrong or cut a power wire that was live you could have affected the Ecm since it's controlled by that.

Did you disconnect the battery when you were doing it?

ok so do yu not wire it up to new ks like that
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
ok yea my dad is a 30yr Honda mechanic and we did it

at this point I would wire it back up to factory and see if it returns back to normal operation. Cutting into the harness and relocating is not a recommended repair.

I went directly by many videos doig this and not havin trouble after relocating it

This running issue all started after you relocated it correct? or has it been ok for a while and now it's acting up?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
yea I was just tryig to bypass havig to take intake and off
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
all after relocating

Pulling these intakes are not that bad. But if this all stared after you relocated it, I would put it back to factory and see if the truck returns to normal operation at this point.

I get these knock sensors done in a 1 1/2 hours or less.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

Just bleeding the coolant system after doing these jobs, that takes about a hour or so to do.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
is there a way I can get to the ks underneath intake just to unplug clip and use it without takin intake off
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
cuz I really don't want to get that deep into it, does relocating ks effect engine cuz if not I can just buy new plug in and use it

I have seen where relocating the knock sensor back fires. I have seen where it works. At this point I would wire it all back up to factory and just get it back in to working order. I know you don't want to get into pulling the intake, but there is no other way to access the knock sensor.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

The knock sensor is a direct wire to the Ecm. I can give you the wiring diagram if you want to see it and use that to try to check your wiring?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
ok will it hurt it driving it until I can relocate it, its very sluggish but still runs
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
ok yes do please

The knock sensor really won't affect how it runs. It doesn't even turn on the Service Engine soon light.
