Sensors all going off

Scan it to see which sensor is bad.
it can only be 3 things
bad sensor (assumes door not bent in crash)
bad wires to sensor
or the alarm controller is messed up.
we check the voltage at the sensor, if wrong correct that.
if good to the alarm we replace, it,
just say a new 2014 Toyota do this and the controller was bad.
in warranty .

Ford backup sensor

First, check if the backup lights come on when in reverse.
If so, you can eliminate the switch.
Next up is a fuse, the unit itself, or a loose/disconnected/broken wire.

Having problem with back up sensors shutting off when i put it in revers, in drive the button works fine but as soon as i put it in reverse the light comes on indicating that the sensors are off

Might want to check the lens for the reverse sensors to make sure they are not damaged or dirty.
Next is to check the wire from the back to the sensors, some times the connectors become corroded and if the sensors are not "seen" by the PAM ( Parking Aid Module ) the system turns on, then off right away.
The sensors remove from the back of the bumper ( they do not pull through to the outside ), and the wiring harness is fairly easy to track. Check each sensor and the connector for the sensor harness.

Have you checked your backup battery to see if it is dead? Your owners manual will show you where this is located. A bad backup battery can trip your alarm with no warning.

Off light is lit on backup sensor button in dash and backup alarm does not work on my 2004 Ford F150 Supercrew Lariat.

Push on the button and see if the light goes out. It can be a simple off-on switch.

If that does not work the owners manual will have info on using your MENU function in your instrument cluster. When you get into the correct screen there will be listings of HORN alert with the remote, and AUTOlock for your doors. The backup function is just another item to select. Most likely someone was looking to reset the oil warning interval and accidently reprogrammed the menu.

Rear back up light stays on and alarm donst work

The reverse switch may have gone bad. This switch is located on the side of the transmission and will have several wires coming out of it. I believe your alarm won't work because the car still thinks it's in reverse

Backup sensors not working

using a mechanics can listen to the sensors...listen for the weakest sensor and replace it...the sensors make a faint ticking noise when listened to..the faulty sensor will be noticeably different sounding than others...of course the key need to be in on position and in revers (be careful not to run you self over!)
