Knock sensor location

Well as u know i have a wall now. i have an issue with my knock senor. its fallen and i dont know where i goes back lol. I tried a few random spots and set the alarm and nothing. I had even put on the highest setting and nothing. i could have body checked the stupid thing. I have set the alarm and had it in my hand and it would go off in seconds.

So i see its all about location lactation location. lol

the car is a ford explorer 2000. thx guys and gals

Good rule of thumb is to tie it to the largest wiring harness under the center of the dash. Seeing as wiring is located throughout your ride it works rather well, and eliminates some false alarms associated with tying directly to metal.
