Default Back up assist buzzer not working

I have the back up assist sensors in the rear bumper, no camera. The EVIC shows the letter "i" and when I scroll through to the information screen it tells me that the back up sensors need to be cleaned. I cleaned them twice and no change to the display. The sensor off light is lit on the dash panel and won't go off when I press the button.
Is there some magic needed to reset this thing or should I just ignore it?

Thanks,
Oak

Chances are you've got a sensor that has gone bad. I don't think the system knows the difference between a dirty sensor and one that just plain doesn't work.

There were a few threads on this awhile back, not sure exactly when or by whom though

Thanks.
I'll see if I can get the magic search word combination and have a look.

push the sensor out from the backside, it's easy. disconnect, clean the contacts, use dilectric grease and plug back in. do this to all. if it's the connection, that will solve it, you may have some corrosion. if you have a faulty sensor, after cleaning them with no change, buy one sensor and replace each one individually until the error message goes away.
