I don't know what exactly a CANBUS car is, but you could try going to a ford service center and ask that question.

The ecoboost engine is diffrent than the older one, but other than that I think that the rest of the car just had a facelift, so I would expect wiring to be the same. If no member here can answer this, try asking ford. In my case the electrician gave me thorough instructions.

In Topic: Air Filter Age

If the receipt of the service center has an air filter billed, then I wouldn't go back to the same center, as they would be clearly robbing their customers. If the service receipt (or report) is not in with your car, ask the previous owners if they still have it.

Having said that, the service center that I go to, does not replacs the filter each year. They "check it visually and replace it if necessary". I had been taking it out and blasting it with an air compressor, so during the first three years it remained in better condition as yours, so they didn't replace it until the third service. Of course they did not chrage me either.

If it is clean and still comes up with this issue, check the adhesion tape. It will take a lot of beating with moisture etc down there, so give it a look and let us know.

Hmmm, it seems bird poo can cause more issues than etching on the paintwork :) good to know its back up and running!

It has happened to me as well with dirt. I painted mine with a brush (not paint) and got it too thick on a sensor. When it got dirty it happened to give false positive detections. That happened with rain drops too!

The solution was scratching a bit of the clearcoat of the specific sensor and now it works fine.

If your set is more sensitive to make it work through the bumper (detection distances imply it is) then a dirty bumper could justify the false detection. At least in my opinion...
