From Reverse back into Park and the same 'shunt' happens, the same in every gear... SY Ford Territory Turbo 2007, regards Peter

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yes, but I can put a multimeter on the battery to check the voltage

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

SY Ford Territory 2007

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing so far, my wife noticed it today when driving the car

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all at the moment, thank you
