    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.

    Power magic pro if installed appropriately has no issue with stop-start on mk3.

    Old but of interest…

    Thought this might be of interest here.

    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…

    Hope this helps.

    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.

    No problems with my install by Chris Preston over 3 years ago. As said, if you are a bit sharp on the buttons it can throw errors.

    @tmorris2009, just a thought……. try putting the battery on charge for 24/36 hours, as low battery can throw up error codes.
