Backup Sensor fail...?!

I replaced my rear bumper, and broke the sensors when taking the old one off. The sensors didn't work before and I ordered 4 new ones to fix the problem (I thought) eBay aftermarkets. I installed them, kick the truck into reverse and the reverse button didn't light up like it was off until 10 seconds later, now it's solid orange like it was when they didn't work.. Any ideas? Any way to test these?

This happens when you have 2 or more bad sensors. The dealership can scan your truck and tell you which sensors are bad but they'll ding you for the diagnostic fee.

This can also happen one sensor is bad as well. I had the same problem when I bought my truck used. Put your ear up to each sensor you should here a clicking sound coming from each sensor. That's what I did and found that I had one faulty sensor. There are a few write ups about this on here. Oh yeah the truck needs to be in reverse to do this so have someone in the truck with there foot on the brake as well as parking brake set.

To run the above self test you don't need to have the engine on, safer to just have the key on with the engine off.

I know I am bringing up a really concrete sealed issue. But, can the backup sensors still be clicking and be bad?
