I recently changed both knock sensors and wiring harness on my 99 Lexus rx 300! I purchased the parts on ebay and they state (OEM PARTS) Check engine, P0330,


code p 0330 refers to knock sensor (KS)2 bank 2 ---circuit malfunction===causes wiring--KS---ECM
it is possible that in changing the harness there is a problem connection or the connection to ks2 is not correct ( not on properly)

P0330 and p1130


I wonder if these two codes are related. P0330 could be due to a bad Knock Sensor which might affect the timing thereby causing issues with air/fuel ratio i.e. P1130

Code p0330 knock sensor does this affect the way it shifts if engine light is on


Possible but unlikely. Code p0330 refers to knock sensor(KS) 2 bank 2-circuit malfunction==causes --wiring --KS--ECM. Replace the KS. The engine light is telling you that there is a problem with sensors in the ECM and that is what will be affecting the performance . Shifting is the area of the TCM( transmission control module ) so have that checked out as well

What is PO 330 Knock 2 # 2 code is in my 99 lexus rx300 truck


P0330 = "knock sensor no.2 circuit malfunction (bank 2)." This sensor is on the bank of cylinders which contain cylinder No.2. Either the sensor is bad or the wiring to the sensor is bad. The knock sensor detects when pre-ignition (pinging or knocking) is occurring and tells the computer. The computer then retards the ignition timing to prevent engine damage.
