This is probably a dumb question but Im going to ask it anyway. I just installed a hitch bike rack for my mountain bikes but the back up sensor keeps giving a warning and then slams on the brakes. Not ideal as I have the rack on year round. Tried to follow the manual to disable with no success. I read that if a 7 pin trailer plug is inserted it prevents the warnings. Maybe the final solution. I would appreciate any ideas or thoughts.
 
Thanks guys, Its not ideal but I can live with the sensors going off if I can avoid the whiplash. Do you know if it resets everytime it's restarted ?
 
Yes. I think using the tow/haul button is the way to go. Mine hasn’t come in yet, but I also cycle and will need to figure this out as well. I’ll be asking the dealership what the recommend.
 
besides turning off parking brake assist on left of sterring wheel. Go to the dash settings and turn off sensors. Unfortunately this turns off the front sensors as well :/ if you can live with the beeping then I recommend just turning off parking brake assist only.

Toyota needs to update this for us bikers with 24/7 bike racks.
 
Wow! This is disappointing. Toyota needs to do a software upgrade for a bike rack option and fix this. How did they miss people carrying bikes with their LC?

Same issue… I’ve tried all the solutions below and none of them work… ordered a Carista odb2 to try and change some other settings that reset every time you start the car so I’ll let you know if that works
 
I have a bicycle rack and this is my workaround for now. I disable the parking support brake using the button and when it starts screaming at me in reverse I touch the sound button on my touchscreen to mute it. Bottom right corner. Not ideal, but works for now.

I also ordered a Carista and will see if that gives me more options.
