Re: Knock Sensor on 5K turbo

My knock sensor keeps crapping out. The problem is in the lead wire
somewhere between the sensor and the connector (I get a 2142 code,
then I can shut down, jiggle the cable along its length, then do 
another run and get no codes).

Can I remove it, solder a new cable to each end, and put it back in
service? Or, is using a different cable going to alter its impendance
or capacitance (I have *no* idea what type of transducer the knock
sensor is).
