Any Auto Electicians in Midlands?

Defo worth the wait :)

16711/P0327 - Knock Sensor 1 (G61): Signal Too Low
Loss of power
Circuit G61 short to Ground
Circuit G61 open
G61 improperly torqued
Control Module damaged
Torque Knock Sensor 1 (G61) to specifications.
Check wiring and connections
Check Knock Sensor 1 (G61) and Knock Control
This feature search for unusual (spontaneous) combustion. The sensor detects unusual vibrations and based on that it generates a voltage. Is this voltage outside a certain limit a dtc will be set.
Might be worth swapping the wires over briefly to see if the fault follows it... if it does it likely to be the wiring, if it doesn't then the knock sensor prob needs replacing...
I had a signal too high fault on mine and just rewired it to the ECU...

Signal to low, throwing my car into limp mode! im no good with wiring!!
Cars runs nice but little boost due to limp mode! i have a code reader and have cleared fault but just comes straight back!!! not had the car long, about a week! and not had it running right yet. spent a fortune already on it!!
It mentions a control module, where is it on the car and how much??
