I have the knock sensor engine light, that doesn't auto reset itself after the repair is made. The closest dealer is too far to drive in 100 degree weather and pay them the min hr $134 of labor. Has someone finally made a consumer tool or a cheap knock off? If not can any Polaris (NON SLINGSHOT) dealership reset it or is the tool specific to the Slingshot. This is seriously such a joke.

It is our experience that only Polaris dealers that sell the SlingShot will do any business concerning the SlingShot, including ordering parts, which is really too bad!

You must have replaced the knock sensor yourself?

Thanks Bill, yes I did. Looks like I'll be driving in this heat wave.

My knock sensor failed 4 years ago. I got it reset a few times, but it always came back in a few weeks. I bought a new one, but getting it installed was going to be expensive, so I gave up. The error code has been on for 3 years now with no problem. As long as you use 92+ octane gas and don’t drive like a maniac, there really isn’t anything to worry about. Also, check the codes once in a while to be sure another code hasn’t been added.

That's good to know it can be drove on! I ended up taking it to the dealership $89 labor $35 part.
