    2014 MKX hatch issues

    I would seriously doubt that the garage door opener is causing the problem as it's on an entirely different frequency. From your description, it sounds (to me at least) that your liftgate/trunk module (LTM) is failing. Its located inside the interior panel, just in back or the drivers rear tirewell. About the only common point common to all your problems.

    Strange chirping sound

    I'd start by checking the fluid level in the transmission. But usually tranny sounds are more like gurgling, grinding and whining. It really sounds like a belt or pulley, possibly a belt tensioner (although you would think that the sound would also be present when switching to any other gear). I remember reading in the Subaru forum that they had a similar chirping when cold. It was traced to the rear output bearing on the transmission. (Do you have an extended warranty)?

    Cup holder and sharp door edges

    Cut myself twice on that sharp edge!
  6. Consider buying the Console Vault for your firearm. Much safer from theft than the glovebox. Lincoln matched the manufactures price and easy to install. https://www.consolevault.com/console-vault.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI18OK7u-46gIVmv_jBx21ZwA_EAAYASAAEgIdHvD_BwE

    2014 MKX hatch issues

    Had the same issue except the hatch wasn't fully closing, seemed to be but was was always trying to draw the hatch closed and eventually ran the battery down. Didn't happen each time but after 3 jump starts in 2 weeks the dealer found the latch actuator motor was intermitantly bad and replaced it. Appeared at 33k miles. 2016 MKX. Interesting they replaced your motor and sensor with no result.

    Strange chirping sound

    I only hear it once when I am parked and then move the shift lever from park to reverse. It certainly isn't the brake wear indicator. And actually, the chirping is affected by the pressure I apply to the brake pedal as I shift from park to reverse. The harder I press on the pedal the louder the chirping. So maybe it is some sort of indication th brake fluid is low perhaps? By the way, I did clean off the backup sensors and tat didn't change anything.

    Willie doesn’t really consider himself an artist, rather a craftsman involved in practical trades. Yet, most of his projects require him to make interesting and fine objects. Being the eldest son of a carpenter, his background is 100 percent rooted in crafting. He found the art of blacksmithing quite appealing since his teenage years… that fire, the sound of swinging hammers, and those long and shiny blades that came out as a finished product. Soon he literally became obsessed with metal – the way it moved, worked, and changed when heated or cooled. He thinks “iron is alive” and it can live or die based on the blacksmith. He gets a certain “high” when he eventually brings a project to completion after spending hours in the forge. He says if you’re the creative type, you will also have an endorphin rush when you’ll hold in your hand something which was before only in your mind. Willie hopes that he will be able to teach you a thing or two about the metal industry that can help ease your work and make your projects much better in terms of quality.

    Rear View Mirror Wiring

    I finally gave up using the stick cup mount and bought a Blend Mount. Works much better. https://blendmount.com/?gclid=CjwKCAjwrvv3BRAJEiwAhwOdM9b7tCVaCA_L5_V1lhpB1TVNENTknp9OGYAOm1VjjKgvVQJ5bXE5rBoCWSQQAvD_BwE

    Strange chirping sound

    Do you hear this sound when moving or stopped. If moving, it's possible your hearing the wear indicator attached to your brakes making contact. If this is the cause, it will go away when step on the break pedal. If not moving, look at each of your backup sensors for dirt or being out of place. After I got rear ended (minor damage), on ed of my sensors had been knocked out of place and chirped wildly until i repositioned it.
  12. My 2010 Lincoln MKX recently started making a strange 'chirping' sound when I shift from Park to Reverse, It is similar to the reverse proximity alarm but it is steady, not intermitent. It is also a bit higher frequency it seems. No panel warning lights are coming on with the chirping. Any ideas?

    2017 MKX Select

    Great! No PTU to worry about. It's not a problem, just some mechanics aren't going to be aware of the ford service bulletins for the vehicle. Just change fluids often and enjoy!

    2017 MKX Select

    Hi Sean! Thanks for the info. Ours is FWD and we only tow 4-5 miles each way to a boat ramp. I read here that the tow package does not include an additional trans fluid or engine oil cooler. I will add a trans cooler due to Florida's heat to be safe, as it's 125-130 degrees in the sun for about six months. Thanks again!

    2017 MKX Select

    I bought a 2017 reserve a year ago and love it. I think you'll be happy You didn't say if it is AWD or FWD If it is Front Wheel Drive, you don't have to worry about this. If you have AWD and are towing, make sure you get the PTU oil changed regularly. For standard driving I believe 75k miles is recommended for the Lincoln MKX or Ford Edge. For 'heavy duty' use, more often. Heavy duty includes use as a cab or livery (uber), and towing. as often as every 10K to 15K miles. If you are using a non-synthetic oil and heavy towing, Ford says to change it every 3.000 Miles! There is a technical service bulletin, or a message for the models that need this, but it doesn't always get noticed at dealerships. You can search for 'ford edge PTU oil change', or 'Lincoln MKX PTU oil change' to find out more. It is much cheaper to pay to get it done than to let the unit fail. Maintenance is cheaper than replacement If you are a do it your selfer and have the right tools, it isn't too hard to do yourself. More work than an oil change, but less work than a complete radiator flush The Ford Edge community has a lot of advice that applies to the MKX

    2017 MKX Select

    Hi all! Just traded our 2018 Subaru Crosstrek for the MKX, as we wanted a vehicle with a factory Tow package for our boat. Only driven a few miles, but it rides nicer and has more options than the Crosstrek. MPG is about ten less per the EPA. Oh well! Retired in Florida... Thanks! Charlie
  17. If the dealership where you bought from was the one doing the maintenance, they should have it on their computer system. If not, the Lincoln Concierge should be able to help you, but you will need proof of ownership.

    Wind Noise

    I have brought my 2017 MKX back twice. The wind noise is horrible. Has anyone been able to get this fixed ? HELP !!!
  19. Just picked up a 2016 and the code was not in the wallet. I looked online but could only find proper directions for the 11-15 which have a totally different interior. After a spine twisting few minutes upside down under the steering wheel I could see no sign of any sticker under the drivers side dash. Can someone tell me exactly where it is? I only have the one FOB right now so cant use the discover method out of the manual. Should I maybe just go to the dealer and give them the vin?

    Coin caddy?

    Thanks enigma-2. I agree on generic option. Think trying to hack the older OEM numbers would look worse.

    Cockpit Screen Crack

    I had this same thing happen to my '16 Reserve. I didn't notice it driving but my son did -passenger when I gave him a lift. I had my dealer repair it and when I picked it up at $497, the shop mgr said to contact Lincoln and this should be covered.

    Tailgate

    Pdl...it figures that a module gremlin was the underlying cause of the issue, not some mechanical part. Thanks for your update.

    Tailgate

    Results from dealership on 2016 MKX tailgate issue: Tested RGTM for DTCS, numerous fault codes in memory, no concern present at time of testing, update available for module, reprogrammed RGTM to latest calibration, retest, passed. Suspect this may have been the cause of battery drain also. So, I have not had any problems since this fix and the tailgate is working now. Hopes this helps others. May not be the tailgate latch itself, but the computer system that controls it!

    Tailgate

    OK, so I think I got this figured out. Please check out http://www.linhelps.com/content-730.html. You have to disconnect the battery for 20-second to a 1 min. Hook the battery back up, then open the back latch with the button near the license plate. The problem is apparently a voltage issue with the actuator. There is also a manual override, however, it seems you need a circular key or some special tool that I am sure the dealers have. There is no way to fit your finger into the hole after you remove the little plastic panel from the inside of the door. But I can see a lever or some kind of mechanism that seems to push down to manually unlock it from the inside. I did not want to play with a screwdriver in there for fear I break some delicate wire or some electrical component. The biggest issue is they have to remove the whole back panel to replace the actuator. Maybe by greasing it will help loosen things up but I have a feeling I need a whole new piece or this is an indication you need a new battery and you don't have the juice to really pop it.

    Lift gate won’t open

    I am at the dealership now with the same exact problems on my 2016 MKX. Did you find a resolution?
  28. Mike R.

    2016 MKX Power Liftgate will not unlock!

    I am having the same issue. This is really irritating, I always thought they legally needed a manual override I guess that is just for car trunks. I brought it to the dealer and they told me they have to remove the whole panel $$$. I watched all the videos on youtube like the one posted, crawled into the back, and when I popped off that plastic cap you have no access to the lever like you do in older models. This seems like a boondoggle that starts with the latch and will eventually go to replacing the latch and the computer mechanism. How much have you all paid to have this fixed?
