    16711/P0327 - Knock Sensor 1 (G61): Signal Too Low

    Possible Symptoms
    Irregular rpm
    Drivability problems
    Loss of power
    Engine damage
    Possible Causes
    Circuit G61 short to Ground
    Circuit G61 open
    G61 improperly torqued
    G61 damaged
    Control Module damaged
    Possible Solutions
    Torque Knock Sensor 1 (G61) to specifications.
    Check wiring and connections
    Check Knock Sensor 1 (G61) and Knock Control
    Special Notes
    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...

    Im near the NEC Birmingham!!!
    As tufftybloke found, its a knock sensor fault! i have replaced both knocksensors and torqued to 20NM
    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!!
