I installed a ranchhand...

I installed a ranchhand rear bumper on a 2017 ram 2500 and the sensor(s) will not work. The button in the cab will not let me turn them on. Any suggestions. Thanks - Buddy

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

The sensors in the rear bumper. When I turn the truck on the message in the DIC is "Parksense service rear sensor."

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram yourself? What have you tried so far?

I cleaned the sensors, made sure they were installed and plugged in correctly

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thanks

Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

Did you transfer the sensors from the original bumper to the Ranchhand bumper? What codes are being set?

I transferred the sensors from the original bumper to the ranchhand. There are no codes being set to my knowledge.

You will need to connect a scantool to see what codes it has.. The only way I will be able to help you is if you can get me the codes...

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
