I know this is almost a year and a half old but I'm having the sane issue. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas?

I think the backup sensors are kind of like christmas tree lights, if one doesn't work, none of them do. Pretty good idea I think so you don't end up backing into a pole if one of your sensors isn't working. I think the best thing to do is get ahold of a new, or known good sensor and change it out with each one and you'll find your bad sensor.

I have one bad sensor, it makes the whole thing not work. To figure out which one(s), key on; engine off, set the ebrake, put it in reverse. Walk back and put a finger on each sensor. If it works, you'll hear a slight noise of sorts. It is quiet, so you have to be in a quiet area to do it. 3 of mine make noise, one doesn't.
