I too am having the "intermittent" check engine light, and get 4444 when
dumping the codes.

I was baffled until I read, in the fine print of the "Tuning Bosch
Injection" manual, that some codes are stored until cleared, while others
are dumped as soon as the fault is cleared.

The knock sensor is one of those stored codes.  However, if experiencing an
intermittent fault which is not one of the stored codes, when the light
goes off the code is gone.

I haven't had any performance problems (that I can tell), so I'm waiting
for the light to go on solid before it worry about it any more.
