Vehicle Health Report 'Service Required'

    I just picked up my Fiesta ST last week, and while flipping through the menus and settings I decided to run a vehicle health report just to see what it was all about.

    Is there anyway to get more info about why I'd get the service required message?

    The only details that I can 'view' show obvious things about if there are lights on the dash and what they could mean. In my case, there are no lights on the dash. The only thing that may be of concern was that it sounded like my brakes may be grinding slightly, but I thought it may just be the nature of the FiST's brakes.

    Edit- I think I may have answered my own question here, in the details it states...
    It sounds like it could have been triggered as I had the parking brake set (as I was parked) while running the test.

    I had exactly the same thing happen the first time I tried the VHR. Doing it again with the parking brake off returned a clear report.
