WARNING: The system may not function if the sensor is blocked.

Note: In cold and severe weather conditions the system may not function. Rain, snow, spray and large contrasts in lighting can all prevent the sensor from functioning correctly.

Note: If your vehicle has a suspension kit not approved by us, the system may not correctly function.

Note: Always fit Ford original parts when replacing headlamp bulbs. Other bulbs may reduce system performance.
