    Is there a way to disable the backup sensors, my tailgate spreader trips the sensors when I'm in reverse. Seriously I thought about bad things today while forward/reverse, forward/reverse. Obvisiously I can push the button each time, but what a pain in the a**.

    do you normally turn the truck off frequently while plowing? my sensors in my 05 stay off (after I turn them off) until I re-start the truck, then I just push the button one time again and its good to go again.

    this is too funny...in my 05 i CANNOT get them to come on. at all, EVER. they are just stuck off. I'd like to have them as i don't salt and its hard to see the little things behind a dually. sorry i'm not much help..just find it funny.

    you might read in the owners manual for a way to turn them off...i think i read about it in there somewhere while trying to get mine turned back on.

    Yes you can disable them. I just did it on my Lariet. You have to disable it at the switch behind the dash. It is not fused or relayed solo so you need to pull the switch off the dash and disconnect it from there

    Turn up the volume on your stereo and you won't hear the backup sensors.
