Something is faulty with the suspension system. It will have set code(s), you can enter diagnostics by pressing off and warmer on your climate panel. It will display codes after the segment check. Record and report all codes, and I can offer some guidance.

That should not have happened. With the key on, press off and warmer(red button) on the climate controls(IPC) together. All of the flourescent, and indicator lights should light after a few seconds, and you can release the buttons. It then should start displaying codes from each module, alphabetically.

OK now I think is correct. Before I had pressed the wrong buttons. After pressing the OFF and RED (I guess now I pressed the right buttons), the following appeared in the written order below:

NO PCM CODES
CODE IP2419 HISTORY
NO ACM CODES
NO SDM CODES
NO TCS CODES
CODE RS0061 HISTORY
NO PZM CODES
NO IRC CODES
CODE RF2560 HISTORY
PCM?

When arrived (PCM?), It stopped without going forward. In order to go forward, I had to turn off the key.
Thanks

That is indeed the format we are looking for. RS0061 is a fault relating to the RF position sensor. First thing to check, what type of sensor is present at the RF. The linear type of sensor was updated to the later model rotary type, and is most likely the failure. If it is a linear type, it is connected at the body and the lower control arm with a ball and socket type connection. The rotary type would be bolted to the body, there would be an arm and a link rod that connects to the lower control arm. There is no special retrofit to replacing the linear type with the rotary type, other than the mounting of the sensor to the body. A drill and some sheet metal bolts can accomodate that.
