2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 - P0327 DTC
I drive a 2003 Chevrolet 1500HD. Several weeks ago I accidently sank the truck in a creek and the fan slung water all over the engine compartment. Everything seemed to be fine after I got it out but the next day the check enginge light came on showing the code P0327.
I've had the code cleared a few times and after driving for a few hours it comes back on. Wondering what all could be causing the problem. Thanks

Hi Jay, thanks for contacting us with your question.
First off let me explain the code on your Chev Silverado 1500. A P0327 code is Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Low Input (Bank 1 or Single Sensor). Basically that means that there is a problem related to the knock sensor and/or it's electrical wiring circuit on Bank 1 of your engine.
A good place to start diagnosis is to get your hands on a repair or service manual for your truck, and verify the resistance of the knock sensor on bank #1. If that checks out OK, then you're going to want to visually inspect the wiring and connectors going from the knock sensor back to the PCM. If they look OK, use a digital volt ohm meter to ensure there are no shorts. More detailed instructions on further troubleshooting steps is found @ P0327 @ OBD-Codes.com
If you have any doubts, please consult a qualified mechanic. Good luck!
