Any way to silence rear cross traffic alert

Unfortunately, due to physical issues, we have had to install a platform lift for taking a mobility scooter. Sorento is 2016, that has the rear cross traffic alert. Now whenever the car is in reverse the lift mechanism obstructs the alert sensor and sounds the alert. The rear view back up camera still works. Any way to disable the alert warning. If so will that also disable the backup camera function?

In the User Settings section of your manual, page 4-85 it states that this feature can be turned off in the User Settings display on your instrument panel.

If it is the rear parking sensors you can press the P off button near the gearshift to disable. That is more likely than it being the cross traffic sensors.

Thanks! It was indeed the rear parking sensor alert as noted in Soothing Dave's response.
