I'm not sure what you are talking about? What "off" light are you referring to?

If you have your hitch in try removing it, that can sometimes cause it to do that. Mine usually gets confused for a day or two after washing the truck in the winter (water freezing in the connectors). I fixed that with some dryer and sealing the connectors better.

Some of these had problems with the module, and some with sensors, you will need to bring it in to get the codes out of it

Parking aid

The parking aid system consists of the following:

4 ultrasonic parking aid sensors (located in the rear bumper)

parking aid module (PAM) (located behind the RH cowl kick panel)

parking aid speaker—audible warning tone (located on the PAM)

parking aid switch (located in the instrument panel)

reverse gear select input (to the PAM from reversing lamp circuit)

This might sound like a dumb question but are you sure somebody didn't turn it off? I'm not real familiar with how they set it up in the trucks but I know that the Windstars have the option of turning it off in there setup menu.

Seriously, you can't turn them off and have them stay off?

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
