    park on flat ground, block a wheel front and back with bricks so the car will not roll, turn key on but do not start motor, set parking brake,put car in reverse, go to each sensor in the back bumper and listen for a clicking sount, if it clicks it is working move to the next..the ones that don't click are bad and need to be replaced, order from e bay, the dealer gets $150 each and e bay is under $15 each in most cases.

SOURCE: My 1999 pontiac montana rear sliding power door will not work

I went to bulldogsecurity.com and looked up the wiring diagram for this vehcle. However, prior to checking this part, I would check to see if you have a blown fuse. It doesn't hurt and only takes a few minutes. There should be a fuse for that either somewhere on the side of the dash or near the brake pedal area. If not it may be under the hood, but it should be inside the vehicle. You may have multiple fuse boxes. If it has (2) sliding doors it will have a wire for the auto doors in each kick panel (under the plastic trim/molding) when you open the door and look down you will see all of the trim/molding it should snap out or may be held in place with a screw or (2). Once you remove that you should see the wires. It says for the left side it is either light blue or black and the right side is definitely light blue. Trace this wire until you find out where it ends (the motor or switch to control the auto doors) Then test the switch/motor to see if it is bad.

The URPA is equipped with a switch located above the driver information center (DIC) that can be used to disable the system.Do you have it disabled ?
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Displaying
This vehicle is equipped with an on-board diagnostic display feature capable of displaying diagnostic trouble codes using the 3 indicators on the rear parking assist display. After the bulb check has been completed, the red outside indicator flashes to indicate a malfunction with the system. The module disables operation of the URPA system under this condition.
In order to enter the diagnostic mode, complete the following actions:
With the ignition turned OFF, short the rear parking assist diagnostic connector to ground while the vehicle is in PARK. For the location of the rear parking assist (RPA) diagnostic connector, refer to Object Detection Component Views . It's under the front of the center console , by the BCM - body control module.
Turn ON the ignition.
Place foot on the brake.
Shift the vehicle into REVERSE within 5 seconds.
If the vehicle is not shifted into reverse within 5 seconds after turning the ignition ON, the diagnostic mode will still be initiated. However, a reverse input wiring fault will be registered as sequence #7 as shown in the Diagnostic Indicator table below. Refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Clearing for the specific steps on how to clear diagnostic trouble codes. After the reverse input wiring code is cleared, repeat the diagnostic trouble code displaying steps in order to enter the diagnostic mode.
When the diagnostic mode is first entered, the rear parking assist display displays the amber outside indicator and the red outside indicator. Then, the indicators on the rear parking assist display will display one or more of the sequences in the table below to indicate where the fault exists within the rear parking assist system.

The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
Condition/Concern: Some customers my comment of a Service Park Assist Message on the DIC and/or the LED indicators at the right rear pillar staying on or inoperative. This concern could be caused by the wiring harness to the LED indicators being pinched under a ground eyelet at the right rear pillar, as shown below.

other issues could be the problem such as poor connections at each sensor or damaged sensors. to clear URPA codes,place ignition in run,(engine OFF),shift into reverse and turn key OFF.place shift lever into park and retest operation of URPA. if still inop URPA code(s) need to be retrieved before further diagnosis can be accurately done.

Check the system for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes should be the first step in the diagnostic process . Then reading factory service repair manual how the system works , viewing wiring diagrams .
Object Detection Description and Operation
Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist Operation
The ultrasonic rear park assist system senses how close the vehicle is to an object. The distance is determined by the 4 object sensors located in the rear bumper. The object detection system will notify the driver when backing up at speeds less than 8 km/h (5 mph). The object detection system will use the rear parking assist (RPA) display and the radio speakers for notification.
When the ignition is ON and the vehicle is placed into reverse, the object detection system performs a bulb check. During the bulb check, the 3 indicators on the RPA will illuminate for approximately 2 seconds to indicate that the system is working. The object detection system performs a bulb check and operates when the following conditions are present:
• The ignition is ON.
• The vehicle is placed in REVERSE (R) for rear parking aid.
• The vehicle speed is less than 8 km/h (5 mph). At speeds greater than 8 km/h (5 mph), the object detection system is disabled. The red indicator flashes to warn the driver that the object detection system is disabled.
The object detection system senses how close the vehicle is to an object. The distance is determined by the 4 object sensors located on the rear bumper. When the system detects an object, one of the following will occur:
• If the object is less than 0.3 m (11 in) away from the vehicle, the amber outside, amber middle, and the red outside indicators flash and the chime sounds continuously for 3 seconds.
• If the object is less than 0.3-0.5 m (11-20 in) away from the vehicle, the amber outside, amber middle, and the red outside indicators are ON.
• If the object is 0.5-1.0 m (20-40 in) away from the vehicle, the amber outside, and the amber middle indicators are ON.
• If the object is 1-2.3 m (40-91 in) away from the vehicle, the amber outside indicator is ON with a single chime when the object is first detected.
Object detection system can detect objects 7.6 cm (3 in) wide and at least 25.4 cm (10 in) tall. It cannot detect objects above the level of the roof.
If the object detection system detects a malfunction, a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be stored and the object detection system will send a serial data communication message to the instrument panel (I/P) to SERVICE PARK ASSIST message on the driver information center (DIC). Then the chime will sound and the red indicator on the information telltale center will be lit continuously. The red LED in the rear display will be lit, notifying the driver that a malfunction exists. Message will clear once the driver acknowledges it.
Each object sensor is a three wire sensor that is both a transmitter and a receiver that comprises a signal circuit, a low reference circuit, and an 8-volt supply voltage circuit. The rear object control module supplies 8 volts to the object sensors via the object sensor supply voltage circuit and provides ground via the low reference circuit. The rear object control module triggers the sensors in a sequential loop and after each sensor transmits, the rear object control module uses the echo or signal return to calculate the distance and position of an object from the rear bumper. The rear object control module directly controls the RPA display.

I had this situation too, exactly. Everybody told me it was probably a rear bumper sensor gone bad, but at least in my case, no such luck. It was the Park Assist Module, basically the control computer for the whole system. A new one fixed it, but was about $300.
