can someone tell me how to find which sensor is bad? Does the bumper cover have to come off to replace? What else could the problem be? works when you put it in gear for like a second then goes to red dot... thanks

the sensor is not hard to replace i have done it a few times on my 03 but testing for a bad sensor is different on your then mine i think you have to go to the dealer and have them use the tech-2 on it to find out what sensor is bad

I am having a similar problem.. when I start my truck sometimes the parking sensors are off and can't be turned back on but I can restart the truck and it could work again. Any ideas???

You probally have a short on one of the sensors.

Same problem with my 07. I'm not giving the dealer any more money though. It can stay this way.

Still have the problem. What should I look for to test it to see which sensor is causing it? Thanks.

I am having the same issue and when I went to take a look the connector has a little tab that holds it in and they are all broken. I'm guessing someone painted the rear bumper before and just yanked them all off. I'm trying to figure out how to hold the the connector to the sensor but havent figured it out yet. Does anyone know if they sell the connectors or a new harness ?

subscribing. My 07 has the same intermittent problem.

Have you guys checked that the cables are not near the muffler. If they are melted that is one cause, but easy to fix, replace the cables. I had this happen.
