proximity alarm

Is there any easy way to semi-permanently cut this damn thing off? Apparently it thinks the load distributing hitch that will pretty much stay installed in is something I'm going to back into.

Not aware of anyway to cut it off. Not aware of anyone who has compared the XT truck as built data with the Lariat or others with the backup sensors to see what is different.

My backup sensor in my 2011 went bad and wouldn't beep any more. I would get a backup sensor fault at start up. I tried turning it off in the settings, but it would just come back on each time I started it up. If disabling the sensor in the settings doesn't work I would imagine unplugging the sensors at the bumper would, but you'll get that sensor error message each time. After a while I got used to it and acknowledging it became part of my normal start up routine.

Unless you get smart with ForScan I can't give you a way to shut it off "semi-permently".

Or maybe get smart with some wiring. I never got around to it yet, but was thinking of fabricating a 7 way plug with some resistors to "fake out" the truck into thinking I have the trailer connected. Then I could just put that plug into the 7 way on the truck when I wanted. My thought was to plug the trailer in and disconnect one wire at a time to see what told the truck it was there. My bet is it has to do with the brake or battery system.
