Backup warning system problem

Defaults to off at switch, I turn it on...When I put it in Reverse, it turns off again... Any ideas where to start?

Thanks in advance,

I have the same problem with mine. A friend told me one of the sensors in the bumper is bad. I'm told you need a Ford code reader to find out which one. No personal in sight to add.

From what I've read you can listen to the backup sensors click. The one that clicks slower is the bad one. You need to listen pretty close though. Truck should be on, but I can't remember too well. Its worth a shot.

turn truck on and put in reverse with e brake on and go listen to the sensors. if working then make a very fast ticking sound if bad it will be slow or not at all. when you find the bad one clean the glass and see if that helps if not then replace the bad one.
i had one bad on mine and its a simple fix.

LOL, I know what you mean when pulling you have to shut it off every time you start your truck.

I love mine. I back into the garage, which I almost need a shoe horn to do, and when it goes solid I'm there. I did have to change one of mine when it was new (to me). Simple plastic clip. Squeeze to remove then push til it clicks in. I had the mechanic at work scan it to tell which one was bad.
