2012 F250 Unable to disable reverse sensors

Hello,

When I set the reverse park aid to Off in the menu, the next time I start the truck is reverts to On. I have tried to turn it off about 10 times now and always keeps reverting back to On.

What am I doing wrong? I am doing this from the Settings menu and not when the indicator pops up when you put the truck in reverse.

I don't think you as the consumer can permanently disable it. Because backup sensors are now mandatory by the gubment so turning them off is only temporary, like traction control. I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere, and soon rear view cameras will be mandatory too.

So you can turn it off if the tailgate is down or you're pulling a trailer, for that drive cycle.

Mine are not turning up on the screen to turn them off. Pretty annoying when backing up a trailer. Anybody experience this?

Reaper you probably have the my key feature actIvated.
I believe the truck recognizes trailer brakes and that is when it will automatically disable them, when you pull a trailer with no brakes the sensors will alarm.

I recall reading somewhere on here that it has to do with whether you are using an administrator (?) key or a mykey when you change the setting. Hope that can get you pointed in the right direction.

Let us know what you come up with.
