@white-rs2 Are you going to share with us why ? just write the same on all the Ghost related posts on this forum which I’ve lost count of personally but as your writing on them all have a count up for us

Hi Chris Preston, I’m booked in with Autowatch, a guy called Luke for a Ghost and tracker to be fitted in Minworth, Birmingham. After reading on here about some installers not fitting them correctly, do you know if he’s a reputable installer? Or has anyone else used him? Thanks.
Andy, I had the drive mode and engine cutting out issue on my RS yesterday! It happened 6 times in a row! Did you have any more issues or was it down to timing? Think I was starting before the flashes?
i have had my ghost system installed a couple of months without a single issue. you must let the indicators flash before starting or it might throw in random errors (i was told). assuming the installation was completed by a competent person. my installer had to plug a digi box into the car post instal to clear faults, they never returned. i think it was the car rejecting the ghost initially when it sensed it was wired in.
it may help if you get the ghost app £9,99 and worry no longer because that does the coding for you. you still need to wait for the flashes however. this is a small price to pay for the security of you car! and peace of mind!
press the start button once, code (or app), flashes complete (2off), wait a second and press start again to fire up the monster.
I will echo what chris preston stated. My car has been in ford for a few things and i know battery has been of for a few days as tracker people kept messaging me. Mine always starts first time. Far to many people out there who havnt a clue and should nit be fitting these. I travelled to chris’ home address, few hours each way but worth it for peace of mind. Good bloke who knows his stuff.
I was having exactly the same issues as some of the others here when I started the car with Ghost and I was getting the Drive Mode unavailable and Belt Minder message (which incidently I took to Fords who had no idea what this was…)
Anyway, it was all down to how I was starting the car… I was depressing the clutch, Start, disarm, then Start again.
I just tried the method suggested earlier, Start, disarm, start and got no warning messages. So seems that pressing the clutch does screw the system up.
Now it means I can get it into Sport mode that much earlier…
You are correct. If you screw up the sequence, you get warning codes. This was explained to me when I had it installed. Every now and again I drop the ball and get a problem but it’s me, not the Ghost. Great product if it’s fitted correctly. Gives me massive peace of mind.
I don,t know if it,s me or the ghost,Started normally then pulled away and car cut out-seat belt minder /ford assist not available ,earlier started car in driveway and it started and cut out,maybe i,m to quick on the buttons and rushing it any thought,s Been fitted 2 days.
i know this is a old thread, but I’m experiencing the exact problems as you posted, just wondering how you sorted it out????
