I have a 1993 Ford Explorer that goes into high idle when I put in gear. It does this when the engine is hot or cold.

On some cars there's a speed sensor on the clutch or transmission. That might cause an idle problem.

Reversing sensors only work when weather is good

The sensors are prone to clogging with dirt and ice. The only suggested solution other than replacement is to periodically blast the sensor cavities with a high pressure stream of water at a car wash then allow them to drain and dry. My RSS comes and goes on a whim

Reverse sensor not working on 2005 Ford Freestar. The "off" indicator stays illuminated on dash control even if you hit button to cut on/off. Have checked all related fuses and they are all OK....

You have a bad reverse sensor or cable. My freestar got "gently" hit from behind and it damaged one of the 5 sensors, the (RSS) Reverse sensing system controller wants to see all 5 sensors at start up of the vehicle, if it does not, then it shuts it's self off. Else the RSS controller is damaged.

Reverse lights won't work but test good. Where is the switch located that operates them.

The switch is the transmission range sensor also called park/ neutral safety switch. Yours is located on the steering column, right side1.image

I have the rss reverse sensors and when i put the truck in reverse the light illumes off and the system wont alarm

Check the park aid sensor lenses for damage.

Next remove the park aid sensors ( remove from the back of the bumper ) and check for damage.

Check the connectors on the sensors for corrosion or damage.

The symptom you describe is usually the park aid module cannot test the sensors ( or they fail test )
