What is the Reverse Sensing System* in my Ford?

Available Reverse Sensing System uses sensors in the rear bumper and a warning sound to alert you of obstacles behind your vehicle. The rear parking sensors are active when the transmission is in reverse (R) and the vehicle speed is less than 5 km/h. 


  • Keep the sensors free from snow, ice, and large accumulations of dirt.
  • Do not cover up sensors.
  • Do not clean the sensors with sharp objects.
  • If your vehicle sustains damage leaving the sensors misaligned, this may cause inaccurate measurements or false alerts.
  • Some accessories, for example, larger trailer hitches or bike or surfboard racks can cause reduced performance or false alerts.
