Help with Field Function describing Force

I am attempting to model the motion of a vehicle that behaves as follows -- While above a certain Depth (say, 2.5m), there is a force acting downwards. And when it goes below 2.5m, the force begins to act upwards.
I have tried modeling this by using a field function for a Force acting on the CM of the object. However, I am getting the following error --
"Error: field function 'Simulation>BodyManager>Body("Body 1")>ExternalForceAndMomentManager>ExternalForceCM( "Force CM 1")>VectorPhysicalQuantity>InlineFieldFunction("In lineFieldFunction")' compilation error: syntax error
Cannot evaluate expression"
The expression I am using is
[50.0, ($$Centroid  > -2.5) ? -25.0, 0.0]
This is given in the DFBI --> 6-DOF Bodies --> External Forces and Moments --> <Name of Force> --> Force space.
Any idea why this is happening?

The centroid field function is used for getting the centroid of the mesh.
You need to refer to the centroid of the vehicle I believe.
