Honda knock sensor? Torqued to spec? They need need a very specific torque to preload the sensor correctly.

If yes to both of those, this platform is known for corroding that shielded knock sensor wire to the PCM. Will need to replace that wire. There are a number of how tos out there.

Use the scan tool to clear the code. Disconnecting the battery won't clear codes on newer stuff.
