    Sorry can't help, just to say I got excited for minute there thinking you are restoring a Bristol Beaufighter - the real deal that is, not the car.

    Assuming that it's an instrument cluster message, then it can be caused by dirt build up on the bumpers (behind which are some of the radar sensors), on the shield in front of the centre radar sensor - around the grill star - or on the sensor behind it.

    Car is rather clean I guess it's over sensitive, I cleared the fault and it hasn't reappeared.

    Kept having the same message and the car was clean, turned out to be the control box which had to be changed, luckily under warranty as it was around £1300.......not had the warning since.
