Reverse Sensing System doesn't sound

RSS makes no audible noise. The fuse is ok and the switch to silence system temporarily lights up when you try to turn it off? I located the speaker for sensing system...is there any way to test it before replacing parts? Is there a secondary fuse I can't find? The Dealer just wants to start replacing sensors until they find the problem $$$$ Help

    Is there a fuse in a different location that I am not seeing?

    My RSS always shows Off. I press the button to activate it and it will stay on for a short period of time and then show OFF. Also, when the Off light on but when I back up the RSS beeper sounds repeatly while I am backing up with no one behind me. 2003 Mountaineer AWD.

To test the speaker touch the wire terminal a 9 volt battery tester, make this by soldering wires to any 9 volt battery, then touch momentarly the battery leads to the speaker, the cone will move and make a slight pooping noise.

My 2004 Pontiac grand am se1 acts like door is open and interior light stays on also does t lock on its own when in gear and lights don't blink and horn not honk when locking with key bob


Door ajar switch problem more then likely or wiring issue . The BCM - body control module won't turn off interior light , let door lock because it think's the door is open . The door ajar switch is a input to the BCM .

The first thing would be to have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Also check with an enhanced scan tool to see if the BCM shows ajar switch data (open or closed ? Do you know about body electronics ?

Electrical problem 2000 wrangler.


that means 1 of 2 things'
wrong size fuse, you never stated amps. or the color of the ATC fuse.
the correct fuse blows with any short, ending possible fire.

sounds like you have gross electical issues.
even bad battery terminals. clean them.
try a fresh charged battery
use a voltmeter and measure voltage yet.
at the battery and those things that fail?
that speaker noise is alternator whining noise, caused buy shorted diodes in same.
you do know alternator can fail in many a way.
dead.
regulates wrong
open diodes, and 1/3 loss of power
shorted diodes turns alternator in to a huge noise generator
weak
overvoltage
over charges battery
to name a few and bad bearings,

The fuse might be built into the cable to the lighterand/or radio. It's called "fusable link", this type of fuse looks like a cable. Or another type of fusable link might be in the fuse box under the hood near the firewall.

Hi there:
The number one thing that causes this system to go bad is one of the sensors in the rear bumper is bad and once one sensor is bad the hole system shuts off. Here at the dealer we can hook up a computer to your car and see which sensor is bad, but if you want to do this on your own, you can get one new sensor and install it in one of the holes and see if this repairs it, if not, put the old one back into place and now put the new sensor in the next hole (next sensor).


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

For my 2003 ford windstar I have a fuse that keeps blowing, any ideas what system is most likely causing it to blow multiple times?


its a bit hard to say but if you remove the plugs on the devices one by one you would find the culprit. anything with heat in the word i would start with as they are a main drain and so would the door actuator as they high voltage use. the rest are low voltage compared to them mentioned.
