backup sensor

It appears the backup sensor just went out on my 05 X 6.0L. The button on the dash says "OFF" all the time.

Any ideas on where i should start looking

with the truck on set e brake and put in reverse. go listen to the backup sensors. they should have a high pitch fast almost beeping sound to them. if you find one that sounds different then thats the bad one.

You can put your finger on it when its in reverse and you can feel the tapping if its working or listen to them. I have 2 bad sensors on mine but I dont want to spend the money to fix them, They arent cheap.
