I was wondering? is there an off switch to the back up sensor?
Licoln Navi has an off switch to the backup sensor if the driver may want to not use the back up sensor. Is there an off switch to the back up sensor on the RL?
if it doesn't have one, can one be installed as an option to the empty slots on the mid dash slots??

yes, the RL back up sensors have an on/off switch. But i havent turned mine off yet. I always want to know if something that I can't see is back there.

Here is a picture of the on/off switch. It is the circular button to the right of the steering column.

The switch also turns off the audible alarm that beeps in the cab (very loudly) when the vehicle is put in reverse. That alarm is the only way to know if the backup sensors are on or off.

You are right about the alarm inside the vehicle. Man is it ever loud!

I don't mind the loud backup sensor alarm. It reminds me every day how quiet my truck is when I shift it into drive!

is there a way you or the dealer can put a volume to turn it down a notch? or put a tap or something on the piezzo/beeper to turn down the beeping. Loud enough to hear over the stereo, and low enough so you don't hear beeping sound after you put your RL on reverse.

You could do what many BIG PICKUP TRUCK guys do. Just put on the biggest narliest hitch on thar and leave the damb thing on thar. Then ya don't need no darn wiz bag electric gizmo to tell ya when your close, ya just listen for the crunching metal behind ya.

And gosh it feels swell when you walk into one of these at night and smash your shin or knee. I find that I can talk in tounges when this occures.
