    This message appeared on the display today. It has happened a couple of times in the past but disappeared when re starting the vehicle.  Thought it to be a glitch but has happened four times today (well 8 when powering up and then when disabling the Ghost. It seems it happens with other ford models  but the forums date back over 2 years so nothing up to date. It’s happened on my Focus ST usually when it’s been not used for several days. Contemplating booking it in with the dealer if it persists. Lights appear ok. Some forums talk about auto levelling issue; loose wiring, faulty module.  Coincidence it’s happened on two models.

    Any ideas – has it happened to anyone else???

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Is it because you have put your foot on the clutch or brake before disarming the Ghost? I’ve done that quite a few times</p>

    <p style=”text-align: center;”>Thanks. Had the ghost fitted in January and     updated recently. Always leave the car in gear when parked and depress clutch to put in neutral before starting</p>
    strange that the ST hasn’t a Ghost fitted at present.

    Wasn’t height sensor after all. New one fitted but still showed voltage drop causing dash to display message. Turned out to be loose wiring connection in the footwell. Dealer just crimped the connector to the wire. Hadn’t been knocked or pulled – down to factory build.
