    Navigation Update

    Be careful about buying SD nav cards from Ebay and Amazon. These are more often than not a Chineese clone and have been problematic over time. May work well for a month or two and then poofz. It may "look" genuine but you really have no idea what's "under the hood" unless you buy from a reputable dealer.
  2. You could try a master reset. Before you do however, make note of all of your stored data, saved Navigation points and other personal data. This process will erase all of your data from SYNC, and will restore SYNC to factory settings. 1 On your phone, choose Bluetooth from the Settings menu, then select SYNC and delete it. 2 On the SYNC screen, press the Menu button. 3 Press the Down Arrow button until SYNC Settings displays on the screen. Press OK. 4 Press the Down Arrow button until Master Reset displays on the screen. Press OK. 5 A Confirmation message displays on the screen. Press Yes. 6 After completing a master reset you will need to pair your phone to SYNC.

    So you think you know the Lincoln MKX?

    Good guess. In actually, it's a 2009 MKX, Japanese version. The Audio Control Unit (an Eclipse AVN76D Radio with CD and GPS Navigation) appears to be dealer installed. And based on its location, the rear camera option definitely appears to be dealer. I was attempting to find out the differences between the 09 US version and the 09 Japanese version (as the Japanese version offered a rear view backup camera).
  5. OK Lincoln aficionados, what year? (Hint: I was a standard OEM radio with tv & backup camera).

    Tire pressure sensors

    Think I have a couple of these lying around. Advantage of the Dewalt is uses a 20 volt battery so it goes anywhere and works much better. (Fills faster). (But it does cost much more and it's what you would expect from Dewalt). I used it to pump up my wheelbarrow, both cars including the spares and still had a full battety.

    Tire pressure sensors

    A major problem for many is the not only the problem of checking the tire pressures but having the equipment to reinflate the tires to the correct pressure. (And not just the four drive tires, dont forget the spare! I checked mine three weeks ago and found it flat. Reinflated with compressor and it would only hit 42 psi then started leaking. Turned out to be a defective valve stem). Point of this is here's what I use and strongly recommend. Its portable, battery powered so it goes anywhere, has a screw on hose and to inflate you just dial in the correct pressure; it inflates and shut off at the correct pressure. I checked with a hand tester and it's accurate. This one is tool only for those who already have a Dewalt 20 volt max battery and charger. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H39S9JQ/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_TvmdFb7RSMD6G And this kit sells with the battery and charger. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NJL71CS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_LEmdFbXEV7JDB

    Wind Noise

    I've read in another forum that some wind noises like being described here were traced to the missing or loosened pin fasteners for the under carriage cover. (This is the fiber cover located under the cabin. You should be able to locate or verify simply by looking under the car on drivers or passengers side).

    Cup holder and sharp door edges

    I don't have a 16 so I'm thinking out loud. Concernining the sharp edge, believe I'd try adding a small piece of automotive door trim to cover thsy edge. Heres an example of what I'm thinking: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0851BPSFW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_plFcFbJPDVBDV As far as the cup holders, I'm guessing that you'll need to pull out the cup holder assembly and remove the bottom from the underside. If the 2016 assembly copies the cup holders from previous years, it just pries out from above. (Usually the assembly consists of the cup holders and the surrounding plastic base). Before you try this, have you thought os sticking a vacuum cleaner wand into the bottom.of the cup holder and try to suck out the liquid?
  10. Most likely your IA fob isn't linked to your memory seat module. Set the seats, mirrors, etc. to the position you like, press and hold the memory button for 5 seconds, until you get a beep, then continue holding until you get a second beep. THEN, within 3 seconds press the lock button on the Intelligent Access fob. It should now change the Sears, mirrors to the memory presets. (To disassociate the IA same procedure, just press the unlock button). Can set the 2nd IA for wifepo same way with her IA
