What code did you have? When you turn the key, no clicking noise or anything from the starter? How long does it take after cooling down to start again?

i cant remember the code but it was for knok sensor i think it said bank1. no noise at all from just a click at ignition. as soon as it cool down it will start again. someone from work said maybe the start silonoid? i being goin to trhu a lot of starters but th last one was bout 2yrs ago. we dont use car this alot. thanks for the response..
