Strangest Park Control problem I've seen!

Afternoon all. Just bought a C-max for the daughter in law, a 2011 1.6 titanium. Overall a great car, with one weird problem, I'm wondering of anyone on here has any knowledge of.

The display is telling me the rear park control has an issue and needs maintenance. So far, no problem, probably a sensor. Plugged my OBD reader in, but no fault codes.

So, I look for the on/off button for the PDC, which "should" be under the heating controls. But nope, where the button should be ( and the book says so too), there is a factory blank ( next to the heated screen buttons)

So, I have sensors and the car says there is a problem, but I don't have a PDC button which suggests its come out the factory without the button. Now this might explain why the car says there is a problem with it.

Anyone heard of ford forgetting to put the button on or any other thoughts?

Hi

I had a not dissimilar problem wher4 the Engine Oil Needs Replacing message came up every time I started the car, even though it had been recently serviced. The "Fix" was to switch the ignition on (don't start the engine) and hold the foot brake for 30 seconds; the warning light went away. It doesn't answer yout question about the reversing sensor controls, but at least you can get rid of the pesky message!
