Hello there,

RSS is for reverse sensor system.

Any damage to the rear bumper bar especially the parking sensors?

no, suddenly just did it, after going over speed bumps.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
just do it by email l'm unemployed do not have funds to talk over phone.
ICC unit has a black screen past twelve months.

Ok, if no obvious damage, then a Ford dealer technician needs to investigate further.

Sometimes the fault is obvious from physical damage.

This sounds more like a poor connection in the rear harness.

The two faults could be related, or separate faults.

Hope this helps.

Hi Gary,
Just to let you know the problem has fixed it self, turns out when the push bike was on the car it bounced on the top of the bumper bar, upsetting the sensors.
regards tony.

Hi Tony,

That's good news for unusual circumstances.

Wishing you happy motoring.

Kind regards

Gary
