Backup sensor will not work. Haven't plugged in to search…

Customer Question
Backup sensor will not...

Backup sensor will not work.

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

Haven't plugged in to search for codes yet. Just done a manual check.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2006 f150 lariat

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Done an audio inspection of the 4 sensors in the rear bumper. All are clicking when truck is in reverse. So thinking it is not a bad sensor. Parking assist button light just stays on continuously. Never beeps in the truck when it is in reverse.

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

That's it

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started. If I upload dropbox links, without the app use the box in the top right for direct download.

To diagnose this system, knowing the codes stored are a must, do you have a scan tool to do that?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
