Q: How to get rid of "transport mode contact dealer" message

asked by on

My car is a Ford Everest and there's the "transport mode contact dealer" message at the instrument panel. Please advise how to get rid of it.

My car has 90 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi, thanks for writing in. This message is manufacturer-specific. I would recommend taking the car to the Ford dealer to have this shut off.
