    Voilà - From the manual.

    Pedestrian protection
    system

    Active bonnet

    Pedestrian protection system can
    help to reduce the injury of
    pedestrians in case of a front
    collision.

    When the sensors in the front bumper
    detect a certain impact within the
    speed range of 15 mph to 31 mph, the
    rear part of the bonnet will be lifted to
    reduce pedestrians head injuries.
    In addition the front bumper is
    designed to reduce leg injuries of
    pedestrians.

    The active bonnet can be triggered
    only once and remains in the raised
    position. A message is displayed in
    the Driver Information Centre.
    Seek the assistance of a workshop as
    soon as possible, thereby adapting
    the driving style, to have the
    actuators, hinges and bonnet
    replaced.


    Do not drive with the bonnet
    raised.

    After any frontal accident the front
    bumper may appear to be intact,
    however, the sensors may be
    damaged. Consult a workshop to
    verify proper functionality of the
    sensors.

    The system may not trigger under the
    following conditions:

    ● The impact is out of sensor
    range.
    ● The sensors are damaged or
    blocked by accessory parts.
    ● The bonnet is blocked by snow or
    ice.
    ● The vehicle speed is not within
    the range.
    ● The object is too small.

    Manually bonnet lowering

    After the system has triggered, the
    hinges of the bonnet are hot. Do
    not touch.

    To manually lower the triggered
    bonnet for driving to the next
    workshop:
    1. Pull the bonnet release lever.
    2. Push the safety catch to left
    vehicle side.
    3. Open the bonnet approx. 20 cm
    and lower it slowly without
    engaging.
    4. Push down bonnet with both
    hands at rear corners in small
    steps alternating between right
    and left side.

    Be sure to keep away from the
    edge of the bonnet to prevent
    injuries.

    Not much help. Back to the dealer?

  3. Thanks plasma Thanked

    Not silly at all. The manual does not have any reference to it. I have had it looked at by a diagnostic specialist and it baffled him, all he could suggest was main dealer so looks like that will be my only answer. I will wait until first service is due and hopefully get it sorted then, Thank you

    I would have thought that any message on the dashboard would be a fail. The same as a warning light is a fail. But the vehicle in question is not even due for an MOT.
    LED interior lights. Chrome mirror caps & door handle covers. LED reverse light bulbs. Pedal box. Atomic Alloys. Steel Structure spare wheel. Boot floor risers. Rear exit exhaust & rear valance. M Y ‘15’ front grille.

    Why don't you go back to the place you got it from to have it fixed, unless it was private sale.
