Knock sensor will not cause your problems, this sounds more electronic, possibly a BCM programming error. As this is an 04 can try a hard reset by disconnecting the a battery terminal and turning on the headlight switch for 5 seconds then turn off and reconnect the battery, but be warned doing this procedure will wipe out any presets you may have in the vehicle and you will need to run drive time protocol after doing so, thus it might not run as it did for about 20 minutes. If the reset fails then your stuck with having the dealer do a compete reflash of the systems.
