PO328 ( ECM Knock Sensor 1 - high input bank 1) - yes upon acceleration - loss of power - just want to be positive to order and install correct unit. Thanks
Toyota Mechanic: john, The Car Guy replied 7 years ago

here is the test chart

P0328
Notes

DTC P0327 Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Low Input (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)
DTC P0328 Knock Sensor 1 Circuit High Input (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)

DESCRIPTION

DTC Detection Condition

Flat type knock sensors (non-resonant type) have structures that can detect vibrations over a wide band of frequencies: between approximately 6 kHz and 15 kHz .

Knock sensor is fitted onto the engine block to detect engine knocking.

The knock sensor contains a piezoelectric element which generates a voltage when it becomes deformed.

The voltage is generated when the engine block vibrates due to knocking. Any occurrence of engine knocking can be suppressed by delaying the ignition timing.

HINT: When any of DTCs P0327 and P0328 are set, the ECM enters fail-safe mode. During fail-safe mode, the ignition timing is delayed to its maximum retardation. Fail-safe mode continues until the ignition switch is turned off.



Reference: Inspection using an oscilloscope
The correct waveform is as shown.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

Monitor Strategy

Typical Enabling Conditions

Typical Malfunction Thresholds

If the output voltage transmitted by the knock sensor remains low or high for more than 1 second , the ECM interprets this as a malfunction in the sensor circuit, and sets a DTC.

The monitor for DTCs P0327 and P0328 begins to run when 5 seconds have elapsed since the engine was started.

If the malfunction is not repaired successfully, either DTC P0327 or P0328 is set 5 seconds after the engine is next started.

Wiring Diagram


Step 1

Step 2-3

Step 4

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

HINT: Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.
