Check for faults on ForScan. They may have left the rear parking sensors disconnected.

Did the use a Kuga specific wiring kit? If so the ECU needs to be programmed to recognise the Towing Module, then the whole thing has to be programmed to enable trailer sway control, and do it's stuff with the parking sensors. If you haven't bought a Vehicle Specific wiring kit, all bets are off....

Yes payed extra for the specified wire kit. Thanks for the advice. They are coming back tomorrow to sort it. So at least I know a bit in case they try to fob me off
