SOURCE: knock sensor code, p0330
The knock sensors either work or they don't. When they do not, the light comes on. All that a knock senor is is a piezo crystal that vibrates at the frequency that is comparable to engine "knock", and sends that yes/no signal to the ECU. There are 2 knock sensors, and both are bolted to each side of the engine interior walls, under each cylinder head. You have to remove both of the intake manifolds to access the knock sensors and their wiring.
Price to pay? My flat rate book suggests 3.7 hrs to change both. 3.7 hrs times your local labour rate, plus the price of the 2 sensors and/or wiring, and the price for the gaskets for the upper & lower manifolds. Depending on your location, you could quickly spend over $500.00.

Forgive me for asking, but are you sure you replaced the knock sensors? They are underneath the intake plenum. I'm just wondering if maybe you replaced the Oxygen sensors by accident. Anyway, so that you know, this is a very common problem (the knock sensors). Gm has issued a bulletin, something to do with the rear knock sensor under the intake getting contaminated by water, and they recommend a new sensor installed with silicone around the gasket to protect it. Also, the wiring harness is particularly tasty to rodents and they get in there and eat the insulation and wires! You have to inspect the harness carefully when you have the intake off because you can't see it when it's all together. Seen this twice now.

Sounds like you have several problems. The P0332 sounds like you got your knock sensor wet and needs to be replaced. When you do make sure you replace the wire harness also and that you seal around both sensors. Also remove the back near fire wall foam under the intake mani to let the water that collects evap out.

The most likely cause of your code is a bad rear knock sensor. You should check the knock sensor wiring harness for corrosion. But if that checks out the sensor will have to be replaced. The knock sensor is under the intake manifold, although it's not too difficult to remove. Both knock sensors should be replaced along with the wiring harness, just because of labor involved in gaining access to the sensors. You could try clearing the code, it may stay off for a long time.
