SOURCE: Backup sensors not working

using a mechanics stethoscope..you 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!)

SOURCE: No communication to the wheel sensors on 2004 Ford

Ford and GM often permanently "marry" the electronic and hydraulic portions of the module making rebuild more difficult as the 2 halves require a different procedures and skillsets to repair (1 is a computer board with chips and circuits, 1 is a hydraulic pump and mechanical valve assembly with some solenoids). You can try BBA-REMAN.COM, they may be able to rebuild it for you, but the majority of rebuilders out there prefer to stick with electronic only rebuilds (Typically european cars all use bosch style seperateable units available as exchange at many rebuilder shops). You may end up with faster luck trying to locate a used unit at a local junkyard that offers say a 30 day guarantee.

Have you verified that the wheel signals are in fact present and are reaching the module? Wheel speed is calculated seperately for each wheel, and processed seperately. It is rare (though not unheard of) for a module to fail in a manner that disables all sensors at once. Typically a module that has lost ability to process a signal or is grounding a signal internally will affect only 1 or 2, and the others will continue to function normally. Also solder cracks on the board are not uncommon, though again that would be very rare to affect all 4 at once.

SOURCE: backup sensor problems

easiest way withoout a scanner is
verify that all wire connectors to back of sensors are not noticable damage, if so repair
if no damage, buy one sensor and trial each one with known good one til light is functioning properly.
very common for sensors to fail, so if want to fix you will need to buy one and all are the same so you can inner change

otherwise you will need scanned to determine which sensor is faulty

hope this helps

Hey,
take a look at www.airbagmodul.com

They're working in Airbag-Simulators and Occupancy Sensor-Simulators.

Have changed fuel filter,pump, plugs leads, module and air intake sensor unit car still wont run, idles rough


I think a trip to the Ford dealer is needed here. There is no code that says any sensor is bad, it only indicates a problem in thesensor circuit. This can be the sensor, the wiring or the PCM control

I recently purchased this 2000 bonneville it has become a puzzle with several missing pieces. When car reaches a temp of 150-200 it shuts dwn. I have replaced egr, ecm,coil pks, egr valve. Crank sensor,map...


I have no idea what this car looks like but then iam in europe so what else do you expect but this problem i have come across often but mainly with older the vehicles with a ignition module not a later one with a coil pack but when i have had later cars like this then it could be a autochoke temperature sensor ,The problem is your working in the dark and spending a fortune on parts and to be honest you will need to concede defeat and take it to a dealer who has the correct software to read the ECU and see whats happening ,even newer cars especially renaults have to be connected via the internet to do this so no dodgy mechanic in a dealers can copy the software and flog it on the black market or E bay.So best advice i can offer is to take it to the dealer and swallow your pride and pray to whatever that a 548 chevy or a ford cortina comes on the market with no fancy electronics,how do you think i feel giving advice like this after 40+years fixing motors and new ones i cannot even change the brake pads as its dealer only job via the internet with the bar code from the original packet of manufacturers pads or the immobilisor isnt released and the ABS .6 years at college as well and reduced to a semi skilled drone

1998 ford explorer runs ruff sometimes usually when first started took it to the dealer they replaced map sensor cleaned the fuel system and replaced the thermostat stll misses now they say computer module...


if fuel filter has more than 50,000 miles on it change that first, then take it to auto zone for a second opinion on comp. module. it may even be a bad coil pack.

Hey i drive an 2008 f150 limited and they back up sensors only work for a few sec and then the off light will turn on and i cant get the off light to go away without turning the truck off and on


Based on your description, I would recommend you have the PAM (parking aid module) tested by your Ford dealer. If the PAM detects any problems in its sensors or wiring it will shut itself off. The most common problem is the back up sensors. If one goes bad it will turn the system off. The only way to find out which is bad is to have it tested.
I hope this helps

P1320 service code on 2000 nissan maxima & #5 cylinder misfire or #6 cylinder misfire


2000 maxima are famous for having bad coils - those cost about $350 if you dealer isn't trying to rip you off (otherwise they will charge $600). I also read you can get an aftermarket coil at Autozone.

Ford backup sensors not working


I would buy a Chilton Repair Manual from a local parts store and a digital ohm meter. If the chilton doesn't have the ohms for all the sensors then research online for the specs on the sensor. It sound like a wiring issue or relay.
