Default KNOCK RETARD QUESTIONS?

How can you figure out if you have any? What do you need? Would I get a code?

You need a scan tool to detect KR.

I have an OBD2 scanner for engine codes, would that work? Its reads out any codes that the computer would send out but I'm not sure if it measures kr. Do you think it would work or do I need a special device. Like one of those ScanMAsters or something.

No.. you have is just a code reader.. it won't scan as in scan the sensors parameter while driving. You'll need a scan tool.. there'* lots out there.. ebay it or check for the for sale forum in here

A generic code reader only reads DTC or Diagnostic Trouble Codes.

A scanner will scan the car. Keep in mind that KR is a GM Enhanced parameter and you should ensure that a scanner you are looking into getting will read the GM Enhanced parameters.

For example.. I have both Autotap and AutoEnginuity for the laptop. Had I ordered them as barebones stock applications I could read things like water temp, maf, O2 sensors..but KR would not appear. Since I ordered GM enhanced...I have KR and many other GM only parameters as well as the generic parameters.
