Regal V6-3100 3.1L VIN M SFI (1996)
The PCM contains a replaceable Knock Sensor (KS) module. The KS module contains the circuitry that allows the PCM to utilize the KS signal and
diagnose the KS sensor and circuitry. It the PCM is replaced, the KS module needs to be transferred from the original PCM. If the KS module is missing
or faulty causing a continuous knock condition to be indicated, the PCM will set DTC P0325.
3X REFERENCE LOW
The PCM uses this signal, from the ignition control module to calculate engine speed and crankshaft position over 1280 RPM. The PCM also uses the
pulses on this circuit to initiate injector pulses. If the PCM receives no pulses on this circuit, DTC P1374 will set and the PCM will use the 24X
reference signal circuit for fuel and ignition control.
This is a ground circuit for the digital RPM counter inside the PCM, but the wire is connected to engine ground only through the ignition control module.
Although this circuit is electrically connected to the PCM, it is not connected to ground at the PCM. The PCM compares voltage pulses on the reference
input circuits to pulses on this circuit, ignoring pulses that appear on both. Refer to Electronic Ignition System for further information.
