reverse sensor

I did a search on here and have found that I probably have a reverse sensor bad since everytime I put the truck in reverse it automatically turns the sensors off. My question is could someone give me some insight on how or the best way to remove these from the bumper when I find the bad one?

Ditto to the problem.. I seem to have and issue in extreme cold and or during wet conditions, seems like I must have some form of short or something. I have not had a chance to look into it yet, but will soon and hopefully its not too big of a deal...

I did look these up in my OEM Manuals and it shows them just popping into the bumper. Shows a picture(Illustration) of one from behind the bumper and states to release the tabs on the bezel to remove the individual sensor.

I would assume that the best way to fix this is buy one sensor and try it on one at a time? How does a guy know where to start?

Try this: Set emergency brake, turn key to on, put in reverse. Go to rrear and listen to each one of the sensors. You should hear some clicking from the ones that are functional. No clicking noise, not working, if one is not working it shuts the system down. Oh, and if your light stays on for the over-ride button after You put it in reverse don't worry You can still do the click test.
