Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you I am a master mechanic with over 10 years experience with various car brands.

The message can have various causes.

By far the most frequent cause is overaged gear oil. The transmission oil changes its properties with increasing age. This can confuse the control of the gearbox.

Gearbox oil change is due every 35,000-40,000 miles or every 3 years. If the gearbox oil change has been a while ago, have the gearbox oil changed. In about 90% of cases this is already the solution.

If the message is still there, there could be a defect in the control unit in the gearbox, this would then have to be read out by means of a Ford diagnostic tester and a troubleshooting carried out.

Gearbox repaired and oil changed six months ago. About 50000 miles

OK, then the error memory must be read out.

I can then tell you more using the fault codes.
