Hi there, thanks for writing in. I'd be happy to provide my insight. I have seen this happen with the same errors when the object detection module is faulty. The "incompatible equipment on sensor" code relates to the fact that the sensor does not recognize the object detection module when it is bad or not emitting a signal to the sensors. Hope this helps and best of luck.
