reverse sensors

yesterday my reverse sensors started acting up, it starts beeping as soon as I put the truck in reverse, nothing is behind me within range, it will turn off if I hit the silence button. but the second I hit the button again it turns right back on.

so far i've checked the back of the sensor connectors, and cleaned (what very little) dirt was on them.

Set your ebrake, turn your ignition on, stick it in reverse, go to the back bumper and put your ear as close to each sensor as you possibly can. You will notice that most of them make clicking noises in rapid succession. The one that either does not make that noise, or makes it slower than the other sensors needs to be replaced.

awesome, i'll try that tomorrow,

on another note, this spring/summer i'm going to build a rear bumper to match my front, is there a way to actually disable they system? or should I just go ahead and try to incorporate the sensors into the new bumper? I dot need them, but if it is to much of hassle to delete them (without having to push the button everytime)

and I dont want to do anything that cant be-reversed, I'll only have the truck maybe 3-4 years and will return it to stock before I trade it in.so all the factory options must function.

just an update!!
lastnight i parked my truck in the heated shop overnight(normally it sits outside)
now my sensors work fine,
what i'm thinking happened is where I park at the house the sensors were going off when I parked it, that night we had a fog/mist that put a good ice coating over everything the next morning, maybe since the sensors were on when I shut the truck down whatever "clicks" on the inside, froze in the ON position over night.

Mine does it every time I wash it in the winter! I think it's a thin layer of ice that forms over the sensors. As soon as they dry off they seem to be fine.

i thought it might have been ice over them to begin with, but I cleaned them off with deicing windshield washer fluid and it still did it.
i'll keep and eye on it and see when I does it again. it is freezing and snowing right now, and I made sure to shut the truck off while the beeper was going off solid. we will see what happens in the morning and tomorrow night.
