I got off the sensors.
Can not test the sensor that is working / not working?
What should the new sensors cheaply?
Rear radars switched off as soon as I put the R-gear position.
Can I test the sensors individually, in any way?

Testing the reverse sensors are easy. First, you must put the sensors back where they were.
This test is for the sensors only and nothing more.
Set your emergency brake (parking brake).
Place the transmission into reverse, do not touch the reverse sensor switch.
Put your ear at each individual sensor. You should hear a rapid "click-click-click."
If that clicking is slow (or does not click) replace the sensor. The fast clicking noise is what you want to hear.
Keep in mind that if you have one bad sensor, the others usually follow behind it quickly.
I had one bad sensor that I replaced. One week later another one went out, three weeks later another. I just went ahead and replaced the last two at that time and have not had any more issues since.

Unplug them from behind (that isn't easy) and then push them in from the outside of the bumper inwards. The black ring around them stay in place.

Mine is staying OFF when in reverse about 97% of the time. It's odd. Every once in a while it stays on and works. When in reverse, the light is OFF and you cannot turn it on when pressing the button. While in park or drive you can turn it on. What does this mean?

Do the above test.
BUT, if they work sometimes, and don't other times, start looking at wiring issues. Pinched or chafed wires will give you fits in the system.
I replaced all 4 sensors, and sometimes after a rain, they just beep like I am on top of something.
