Back up sensors keep turning off

My back-up sensors had been working fine except the fact that I wish the tone was louder. However I just did a multi-state tow and when backing I didn't bother silencing it because I am hard of hearing and could easily ignore it. At some point things changed.
Now that the tow is gone I just realized the sensors are off and every time I push the button to activate them and place the truck in reverse the sensors turn off. Is there a reset or something? I am missing them...Thanks

I am hoping someone can answer this because I am having the same issue. It was working fine, I could turn it on or off with no issues and then about 3 months it stopped working. When in park or dive I can push the button to turn it on but as soon as I select reverse it shut itself off. Last week out of the blue it worked once but then went back to shutting itself off. Anyone have any ideas where to start looking for a fix?

I didn't believe this fix I found on another blog would solve it but it did.
Engine off, key on, I set the emergency brake and put truck in reverse. Went to the Rear bumper and listened to each individual sensor. You should hear a rapid clicking sound from each. I found one not clicking and reached behind the bumper and fiddled with the wire. It started clicking and now it works.
Will need to clean the contacts and see if it continues to function otherwise I hear the individual sensors run about $&0/90 each.

When mine started doing that one sensor quit and had to be replaced under warranty. Glad the simple fix worked for you!!

A good scan tool can find your problem also.
