    Nissan's tend to have a lot of knock sensor codes that never really seem to be a cause of concern, even if the light is not on I have seen the code stored. The cam shaft sensor input is very important for fuel and spark.The cam sensor can be tested on an oscilloscope or with an ac volt meter it should on engine cranking it should put out a small ac voltage. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
