Default Knock Detection for MS3

Hey guys,

So I've been looking at my knock gauge in the TS software (Gauge is called knock input)

And I've noticed that my knock never goes past 11-12 percent. Is that normal? I know that the factory knock sensor isn't that great, but I'd imagine I'd see much knock than that, just from engine noise alone.

My next question, is there a way for the CEL to illuminate when it triggers knock?

Yes. Set up a CEL trigger when Knock goes over a certain percentage.

I don't know how to do that.....

I tried to use the CEL for shift light, then got a pin conflict and stopped there.

I'm much noob
