How to Turn Off Back Up Sensors on 2014 Honda Odyssey


I recently purchased and installed this wiring harness in a 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite. All the trailer lights are operating correctly but the back up sensors are triggered when in reverse. There was not an existing 14-pin plug in the location indicated on the directions. Any suggestions as to how to solve this issue?

As for the installation of the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118521 , if there is no plug already in the 14 pin socket that's ok. You'll still want to plug the harness into that 14 pin plug and just leave the other end unplugged.

When it comes to your parking sensors, the Honda Odyssey parking sensors are only active when the car is traveling less than 10 mph. There are four sensors located on your car. The sensors at the corners of your vehicle have a range of 24 inches. The sensors that are located on the rear of your car have a range of 43 inches-so they're going to sense a trailer behind it and activate the sensors. The best way to handle this is to disengage the sensors when you're towing.

First, you need to know where the park sensing button is located. On the left-hand side of your steering wheel, you'll see a series of buttons. The one you're looking for is on the dashboard below the first row of buttons. You'll be able to identify the button by the words 'Png' that are inscribed on it. All you need to do is push this button to turn the sensing on or off. You can typically tell if the sensors are on when the button has a green light. Once the sensors are off, the green light is also off.

In some cases, you might want to just turn off the rear sensors. For example, towing something might prove to be annoying when the sensors keep going off. To turn off the rear sensors, you need to first turn the ignition off. Press and hold the parking sensor button, Png, while you turn the ignition back on. Once the ignition is on, continue to hold down the button for 10 seconds until you notice that it is blinking and there's a beeping sound. Release the button, but push it down one more time to officially turn the rear sensors off. If you need to turn your rear sensors back on, simply repeat this entire process again.
