it could be the module is going bad. thats what happened on my 06. i bought my truck new, and a few days later the reverse senors started acting up. it was replaced under warranty. since the new one was installed i have not had a problem with them.

Sounds like something's wrong with the button or something, mine are always on unless I push the button off....

If you catch it not working you can test the sensors by leaving the truck in reverse, setting the e-brake....double check that! then get out and put your ear by each one of the sensors, each one should be ticking similar to a stun gun, if not it's defective and one bad sensor will cause the system to stop working. I had a rock hit the back side of my outside sensor and the dealer couldn't figure it out. When I told him this was how to fix it he said I was crazy, we bet on it and I now have a spare sensor!

Ill have to look into this as well. Ever since I hit an elk a few weeks ago mine have been acting up and only work 60% of the time. Im not sure how the back end could have been affected by a front passenger side impact, but wierder things have happened...
