    Unfold mirror setting

    Update: I took it to the dealer for a recall and told them about the mirror issue at the same time. The "idiot" at the desk tried to tell me it was an optional feature that my vehicle didn't have; but on my insistence he put it on the work order. The mechanic was able to find the problem and was able to turn the option on. So now it works and I can shut the mirror unfold feature on and off. However I didn't realize before left that the "Neutral Towing" feature was still not there. Oh well, guess I'll deal with that another time --- "next recall".

    Sync Problems on Home Screen

    When you take it in, ask him to run a reserve load test on the vehicle battery. There are Ford coupons on line for a new battery if needed. If it is the APIM or ACU, he will be also isolate by checking codes. Should be under warranty if so.

    Sync Problems on Home Screen

    Have a 2017 MKX Reserve and love the car. Had numerous problems which dealers finally repaired. When no issues, love the ride, electronics, touchless gate opening and closing etc. Latest issue is the Sync system acting up on Home Screen. It randomly starts beeping then switches from clock screen to home. Tried to update but no luck. States last update unsuccessful on August 2020. Am taking the car to a Sarasota Lincoln dealer for repair but I'm closing in on last 600 miles of warranty and dealer has been sometimes timely with repairs. Any idea what may be the issue? Anyone experience the same problem? Could it be APIM failure? Oboviously want to get this addressed before warranty ends. Thanks, Capt DS

    2021 Nautilus

    It doesn’t get any smoother or torquier than my 3.5L Ecoboost V6. It does take more engineering to match the I6 balance though.

    2021 Nautilus

    Edit of the above: With all the advantages offered by inline-6 configurations, especially smoothness/balance, torque, I would choose an inline 6 over a V6 on any occasion.

    2021 Nautilus

    With all the advantages offered by V6 configurations, especially smoothness/balance/torque, I would choose an inline 6 over a V6 on any occasion. The advent of twin turbos has diminished one of the inline issues, i.e. long induction plumbing.

    2021 Nautilus

    I hear you, there should be more choices. I wanted a 3l V6 Turbo, I settled for an in line... 😀

    2021 Nautilus

    I'm very disappointed that the superb 2.7 V6 turbo isn't available in the Nautilus base model anymore ( e.g. as in my Select model)...a deal-breaker for me since I'm not interested in all the expensive additional features of the other trim levels. Over several years my experiences with busy-bee four cylinder engines has not been satisfying.

    2021 Nautilus

    2024 is good news. I have looked at allot of 2 row types and Nautilus (MKX) with 2.7L can't be beat for size, quality and $$. The 3 row 2022 MDX is close in quality but to include all the bells and whistles that Nautilus has, it is 5K more in price and 9" longer.

    Battery Light 2010 MKX

    New battery, alternator and PCM. I still would be suspicious of the alternator connections. Broken wire, loose, corrosion. Has to be in this area.
  14. enigma-2

    Battery Light 2010 MKX

    As akirby said, wiring, grounds being loose or corroded. Other possibilities include instrument cluster (IPC), faulty alternator and defective PCM. First, pull the codes. (I assume the garage has already done this). If there are codes it will direct the service technician to the alternator, battery or wiring. If there are no codes, the service manual takes you to the instrument cluster. From here you must use a scan tool and follow the procedure. It's designed to isolate whether the fault lies with the instrument cluster or PCM.

    2015 MKC

    I rethought this and remember this has happened to me as well. (duh, i knew this). It's probable Sirus radio updating its database. Radio mutes during this period, about a two or three minutes or so. If you look, there will be a banner on the bottom (on mine) stating that there's an update in progress. Audio will come back on when finished.

    Hello From Mexico!

    I meant to say "yellow" referring to the coolant, not "green". Just noticed my mistake, sorry for any confusion.

    2021 Nautilus

    AWD models continue production into 2024.
  18. Bravo27

    2021 Nautilus

    It appears that the "Build" option for 2021 Nautilus(MKX) is up and running. Have not seen any 2021 in my area to physically look at. Looks like this model will have a short life as BEV will take it's place soon.

    SYNC 3 screen blacks out or freezes

    To update my situation - dealer agreed to replace the entire system - and I said "let me turn off the auto update and see what happens on the long term". It has not happened again, no matter what key/fob is used. And that has been a year. I am not turning on the auto update again. So, I have issues with the tailgate door also. More than once, I have tried to close it using the inside steering wheel area button & it goes part way down and stops like it thinks something is "blocking" it. I go back and there is nothing to trigger that reaction and I shut it by hand - no problem. If the door EVER opens on its own - I will trade it in as that is an absolute deal-breaker for me... oddly though, I remember being at the dealer during one of my visits and there was a couple having the same tailgate issue (auto opening) with a different model of Ford/Lincoln.

    Also I believe that locking the system into AWD would result in its overheating. Normally when the system overheats, it turns off to prevent cooking the PTU lubricant. (It was never designed to operate at a 100% duty cycle).

    MKX awd

    Its completely automatic and the driver has no control over the process. Explanation from lincoln: http://www.linhelps.com/content-906.html#:~:text=The AWD system is an,no input from the operator.

    MKX awd

    Welcome! No way that I'm aware of.
  23. Sooooo! Fuel cell engineers, listen up. It appears that a solution has been found to the huge issue of fuel cells discharging H2O (instead of noxious fumes) into the nation's environments...just evaporate the nasty fuel cell exhaust.

    MKX awd

    Hello new here, is there any way to get my 2011 MKX awd in 4 wheel drive mode for short periods?
  25. Makes me think that its coming from the noise canceling system. Possibly a bad connection is one of the microphones.

    SYNC 3 screen blacks out or freezes

    My 2020 Nautilus did exactly the same thing. I noticed for some time, after startup, the screen may take a while or be hesitant on selecting anything, to the point to where it is inop. Then tonight my wife was driving and the entire sync screen went blank, with only the cameras occupying the screen. So either gray or cameras. So I parked it in the garage and took both keys in the house. Then came out with only my key. It was like the Sync Nautilus totally woke up.... Everything worked fine. All of this in like 5 minutes. I totally agree with KThiel, It is like it was caught in an update when my wife took off for a drive. We are now noting this whole episode because we are also dealing with a poltergeist in the Lift Gate System. Have had the car to our dealer... They could not find anything. But then the Liftgate for some reason started to work properly. For how long though???? So I am tracking that one. I have plenty of films of the liftgate going up and down on its own, while I am 20 feet from the car. So being a technology guy, my gut feeling is the proximity of the key is playing a part.... and definitely the Sync 3 Update. I will check tomorrow to see if there was an actual update, there should be a log of this somewhere in the back end, or the setup. I love the car, I just think there is not enough feedback, or optional feedback to show us when things are being updated, or what is going on with the backend of these systems. Some of us could really help the Ford Dealers in trying to figure this stuff out. Sometimes I think Ford and other dealers are trying to make products that are amazing pieces of technology, but their support or service of these technologies is lacking. To just be told "I don't know" after spending 65,000 on a car, that is crazy... So the bottom line is: I think there is something going on with the update of Sync 3 when the screen goes blank. I did have that on, to automatically update. I'm with you all on trying to work this out. My tailgate, is a whole other problem, I am patiently working with my dealer with. Lot's of filming on this problem.
  27. static on and off on speaker system-even when the radio is turned off! Will go back and forth from normal stereo to only partial sound. Any ideas?
  28. Wait! I just figured it out. The condensate. ..... {{{evaporates}}} !!!
