My vehicle health report says I have a brake problem???

I've got a 2012 GT with 373's, Brembos, and blah blah blah. The report says:

"Indicates low brake fluid level or a brake system malfunction has been detected."

I took it to Ford and they could find nothing wrong with my brakes. I checked the Ford Sync board and could find nothing regarding this.

Anyone else experience this? I've owned the car for less than a month and its been saying this since the very first time I pulled the report. Hasn't changed on subsequent report pulls since.

Did you run the report with your E-Brake on?

The VHR is a dummy gauge so to speak. First time I ran I had the E-Brake on and thought the same as you did. But somewhere on the mysync website says to not have it engaged or you will get that error.

^^^----What he said... I did it the first time with the E-Brake on... Read on Sync site or owner's manual... can't remember, but anyways.. ifn you do the test with E-Brake applied.. You will get an error in your report... Run again without E-Brake applied. GTG:hihi:
