2004 Ford F-150 Back up sensor problems

I have a 2004 Ford F-150. Recently, I had a back-up sensor system installed. It worked fine for a couple weeks, and then decided sound every time I would back up even though there was absolutely nothing behind me. I took the truck back to the service center that initially installed it, and they reprogrammed something. Same thing - after a couple weeks of working fine. The have since replaced that unit three times - then replaced it with a different unit - a DT 506 - no brand name. Same situation. The last two times it started doing this was after I had lowered the tail gate. Putting the tailgate up makes no difference. The sound is constant when the truck is in reverse.

Any idea what is going on with this? I have several friends with the same backup units as I initially had and were installed by the same company, and none of them have ever experienced this.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi: I would like to speak further with you about the backup sensors on your 2004 Ford.I am having the same problem with my 2005, every time I put it in reverse, the beeping starts, I'm not even close to an object. Could you please e-mail me and send your e-mail address, I'll give you a shout. Thanks. Miron. Bigmymy@yahoo. Com
