Question about 2004 Ford F150
Good day my Ford guru's, I have a fully loaded 2004 ~ F150 SuperCrew that has an issue at the moment. The back-up sensors stopped working this winter, thinking they were just frozen - I let it be, but since spring is here and they never started working, maybe there is something that I can do to fix it. I would like them to work again; as they are a great asset on these big trucks. What can I do to test and fix these sensors? I was told to check to see if there is power getting to the sensors, after taking off the sensor and testing... with the truck running and someone holding the brake in reverse, I cannot find any power... there are 3 prongs in the wire. Labeled 1,2,3 and was using a Fluke Voltage meter. Are there any other places that you can buy these sensors if it is the issue, that will not cost an arm and a leg? Thank you for your help.
being you have all these fancy tools////put them aside...diagnosis is simple....using a mechanics stethoscope...put vehicle into reverse (key on of course) hold stethosope up to each senor on truck..you will hear a faint ticking sound from them...replace the sensor(s) that is the faintest...its that simple
have fun with the big trucks...i'll stick to the little ones!
