    power ports not working

    Theres more than one fuse. Check fuse numbers #20 and fuse #27. I'd recommended swapping a known good 20a fuse with each of these as a check. Sometimes a small crack is near impossible to see.

    power ports not working

    2013 mkx the 12 v center console and pass seat power porta dead. The one for the back seat works fine. I have checked the 20A fuse under the hood and it is good. Any thoughts?

  7. Personally I wouldn't think of doing it, but if you do, I'd recommend buying a service manual off ebay as there's usually a lot of safety involved in this system. As an example, I just had the power lumbar replaced on my passenger side (under extended warranty) and they had to keep the car two extra days waiting for one bolt to come in. This particular bolt has to be replaced with new whenever the seat back is removed. Safety issue. I would imagine there are many safety stipulations concerning the steering column. The fact that they can only replace it as a certified assembly is one tipoff.

    08 MKX loud blower motor?

    The bearings may be running out of lubricant. Usually its best to just replace rather than try to relub. Mine make noise like this about once a year. I just let it run and it gets quiet again in a few minutes. Replacement is easy. I've had mine out to check it, think it took about 3 or 4 minutes. When it comes time to replace, I intend to use a Motorcraft blower, even though it cost double over the Chinese junk.

    NO DEFROST PASSENGER SIDE

    I know its old,, posting incase it happens yo someone else. Problem sounds like a blend door actuator. Try a reset first. Press the CLIMATE CONTROL power button and the DEFROST button at the same time. Hold for a second or two. Release and press the CLIMATE CONTROL button by itself again. This will cause the module to reset the actuators and should fix the problem.

    2013 Passenger Side Blend Door Actuator

    Would it be possible to remove the radio and go through the radio cavity to reach the actuator?

    2016 lincoln mkx motor sound behind dash

    Curious. I posted that in a different forum and it showed up here. The sound your hearing is most likely the squirrel cage fan rubbing against the bower housing. Or, the bearings are getting dry in the fan (mine does this about once a year. I just let it run and after a while - about 20 minutes last time - it gets some lubricant and goes quite again). Changing a fan is easy. There are videos on YouTube. When I decide I really need to change ill go with Motorcraft (only). None of thd cheap junk from China.

    Sun Shade

    Global open is where you open the panoramic roof (aka bamr) with your remote control. Opens the front windows and pops the moonrise up to the vent position. To activate , hold the unlock button for 2 or 3 seconds. (Designed to get the superheated hot air out so you can enter without roasting). Have to close windows and roof manually however.

    TSB 09M04S1 Cooling System Corrosion

    Could try it yourself. I'd allow around 3 hours for the soak (or maybe repeat 2-3 times) with a good quality acid bath. He uses water, I'd go with distilled. Dollar a gallon at the supermarket. Also recommend the new fomoco green for the replacement. Supposed to be better than thd original gold in your car.
  14. Hello all - First post here, just purchased a 2011 Lincoln MKX last month. Dream car - was finally time to get out of a 2002 and finally buy a big boy car. I love it, but naturally had a few little things that needed to be taken care of, so I took it into my local dealer to get an inspection. Heated/cooled seats module needed to be repaired, squeak coming from the front, just little minor things. And naturally a few days before I took it in the telescoping steering wheel got stuck all the way in it's highest position. So the dealer quoted me $3500 total, $600 for the climate controlled seats module, $1900 to replace the entire steering column (he told me the motor over heated and seized up and the whole steering column would have to be replaced), and front struts for $1000 for front strut replacement. That was wayyy out of budget, so instead of losing my diag fee I just had them fix the heated and cooled seats for now. Found a motor online for what it looks like for my car here. Think I'm safe to do the swap out myself instead of having them replace the whole column? Looking to see if anyone has done the swap themselves. I had the plastic around the steering wheel to see if I could nudge the mechanism at all, looked like it could be easy but knowing these cars it could also be a lot more complicated than that lol. Appreciate if you got this far and would love some feedback if ya have any.

    TSB 09M04S1 Cooling System Corrosion

    I am in the process of changing my water pump, this was the cause of my heater not working. I flushed the system and all the parts I took off were full of corrosion. I did a back flush on the heater core, it was full of gunk.... after all that, I realized coolant was NOT flowing at all. Anyone else have a water pump issue?

    Sun Shade

    How do you initialize the sunshade? The glass does close all the way, and will go into the tilt position... but the sunshade doesnt even make a sound or attempt to move. I will have to try testing the electrical components. Now... are the electrical components closer to the back or the front of the vehicle. Global Open? How is that? or what? At the moment I am in the process of replacing the water pump and timing chain. This should be interesting to say the least.. LOL
  20. Used WeatherTech Floor Liners from 2016 Lincoln MKX. Front and Rear. ($80) Will fit MKX model years 2016-2018. Also fits Lincoln Nautilus 2019 and 2020 model years. WeatherTech Part Numbers are the same for all of these models. Traded the car in, still have the floor liners in very good condition. These are a great way to protect your car and improve the resale.

    2016 MMKX Select

    Yes, thanks it took a while we were lucky where I live as the water flowed down but the lower parts were completely flooded. The Island itself has bounced back the major problem now is the power authority. Small breeze no light for a while.

    3 of 4 Brake lines failed within last 12 months

    I had seen the report when it first came out a month or so ago. Which prompted me to go find all my receipts. Now I need to go buy the dealer to see how to make a claim for the lines I have already replaced. Also if you notice the recall is only the front brake lines but after I had first my front two line break, then one of my back lines failed (this thread), that is when I had the shop (not dealer) replace both the broken rear line and the rear line that was sure to fail shortly. I am sure Ford is going to not want to do it, we will see, maybe I will get lucky...

    Good catch, pmonag. The news has been out for nearly a month...you're the first to report it here.
  26. Hi, I'm looking for help on replacing the PASSENGER side blend door actuator on a 2013 MKX. I've seen lots of online videos and discussions on replacing the DRIVER side actuator, and they usually mention in passing that the passenger side one is behind the glove box. I took the glove box off and lo and behold, sure, there is the actuator. I can get just barely get at 2 out of 3 screws for it, but I see no way to get at the 3rd screw without taking off a lot of interior panels. I started down this road blindly pulling off panels. I got the glove box trim off finally, thinking this would be the last one I needed to get at. However, there's a thick plastic frame that's still in the way (and a metal bar for good measure too). Inspecting this, it looks to me like I'd need to take off the entire dash to get this frame structure out of the way. Is that the correct way to get at this actuator? Is there some trick I"m missing? I had the thought of just drilling a hole through the plastic frame roughly lined up with the screw. Anyone tried that? My fear there is I'd be drilling blind, with no guarantee it's going to line up with the screw. I fear that this fix might be out of my skill set. Thanks,. Dave
  27. We had some unusually earlier weather changes here the last week or so, from mid to high 90's to 40's today. My wife was driving her 16 mkx to work and said when she turned the heater on she noticed a loud fan/whirring type sound. I rode with her after she got home and it only happens when the climate control is on. Is this the blower motor going bad, is something stuck in it? Sounds for sure like it is passenger side dash, behind glove box area. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    It’s legit. The guy who posted it on Facebook works (or worked) for Ford and used his real name. I don’t think he understood it was a no-no. It was promptly removed.
