Default Park assist error

Has anyone gotten an Park assist error? Last week I was backing up my truck and didn't realized the park assist disable button was lit. Apparently this happened while I was driving home (I never turn it off). When I restarted the truck I got "Service Park Assist System" on my dash.

I tried unplugging and re-plugging in all of the sensors and rebooting the system but no luck.

Any ideas would be great. I guess I'm going to have to bring the truck to the dealer but I'm 1400 miles out of warranty

Have you tried cleaning the sensors ? Only time the system stopped working for me was in the winter after a wash (the -20 Celsius froze them up pretty good and they stopped working).

Yes. I made sure they were 100% free of dirt and dust on the bumper side.

^^^^ Sorry for the obvious. Sounds like you have a possible sensor failure so yes a trip to the dealer should fix you up. Let us know what they find (please).

Will do. I was really hoping it was something simple like they are dirty. I willing to bet it wont be covered under warranty either

Finally have a resolution:

Diagnosis was a broken back up sensor and/or park assist module. Cost was $327 installed. While on the way to get the error checked out my passenger side window switch stopped working. I don't think that switch was used but 10 times since I've owned the truck.

Result: After some talk with the service manager they "good faithed" the work and only charged me $100 for the two broken items (ended up being the parking sensor eye). Only down side was it took 2 weeks to get the part and an appointment.

I'm reviving this old thread, so I don't have to create a new one.

I have a bit of a different issue.

I replaced my rear bumper, and removed the park assist system. I do not like the system, nor the way it looks on the bumper.

I knew I would get "Service Park Assist" in the EVIC, however I am curious if there is any possible way of removing that message for good, with the whole system removed from the truck.

Thanks,
TPIR

If you have a mechanics stethoscope. With the truck in reverse. Not running. Listen to each sensor. Each one will make a clicking noise if they are working. If you don't hear any clicking that is the dead sensor. I just replaced my sensor on mine. $23 off eBay. The sensor unplugs from the backside of the bumper and 2 tabs hold the sensor in the bumper. Can be removed and replaced in minutes.

Great advice Beanbag!! I just had the "service park assist" message show up this weekend on my 2011 Laramie; I'll order one or 2 from e-bay and use your stethoscope suggestion. Thanks.

Well I just replaced all 4 of the sensors on my truck yesterday & still have the "Service Park Assist" message. Also the light is still on. I have disconnected the battery, removed & replaced the fuse & nothing works. I have checked each sensor with a stethoscope & all 4 are clicking. What else should I be doing? Any other suggestions?
