Here is the test for p0332. 1. Disconnect the knock sensor pigtail harness on the back of the intake and check for 100K ohms resistance to ground on both sensors. 2. Switch the meter to AC volts and check for several tenths of a volt output from the knock sensor when disconnected and connected to the harness. 3. If the voltage stays the same, install a scan tool and check for any knock indications. 4. If the voltage output is reduced when connected, check for a wiring problem
