    battery light back on

    Check to ends of your battery cables for corrosion and tightness (not just at the battery). It may be possible that a parasitic drain is killing the battery. One way to confirm is to put an VOM (set to amperes) between the positive terminal and positive lead. Its ok it it draws a few milliamps, say 50 or less, but if it's drawing an amp or more, you have a parasitic drain killing the new battery. (Could be intermittent). Also remember that the power points are hot at all times (incase something is plugged in). Have you installed any aftermarket electronics or did any rewiring?

    Only center THX speaker works

    Try a reset in case the radio got "glitchy". On the sync screen, press the menu button, then down to sync settings displays. Press "ok", then down until "master reset" displays on the screen. Confirm and it will reset the radio.

    2013 MKX Front speakers not working...

    There is a hidden MyLincoln Touch menu thats used to perform a diagnostic test on the AMC (or Audio Control Module as Lincoln refers to the radio). 1) Turn on the Car (accessory mode, not running). 2) Select FM radio mode. 3) Hold down the Right Seek & CD EJect touch buttons together (until the screen changes). You will hear a test tone as the system tests each speaker individually. (14 speakers). If the front speakers still do not operate, the most likely cause is a bad connection or broken wire.

    How do I update the maps?

    Orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ....... you could try the Lincoln store. {big grin} https://lincoln.navigation.com/home/en_US/LincolnNA/USD?&utm_medium=CPC&utm_source=HERE-NA-Google&utm_campaign=LIN-ENG-US&gclid=Cj0KCQiA2ZCOBhDiARIsAMRfv9K74DvpWycRJ9i6YTCKoRUlkXOyrfXaATxDTiweXucpV_kPwNVXJPEaAmHnEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Moan from Engine Compartment

    The TSB is listed for a 2916, but the part fits 2015-2018. As its only $32 might be worth eating the cost if it continues to bother you. https://www.onlinefordpartscatalog.com/oem-parts/ford-automatic-transmission-oil-cooler-tube-g2gz7c410a I did see where a guy in the 150 forum had this problem and traced it to his air filter gasket didn't seal good and allowed more air to get sucked in around the housing. Almost always a moan is related to intake air getting sucked in too fast or too much.

    Transmission Performance Questions & Concern

    Think I read where a dealer software update fixed these problems.
  10. Are the keys your attempting to program OEM? I read that others have had problems with Chinese clones.

    Intermittent moan noise

    You sure it's not your wife? I'd suspect a wheel bearing. Another possibility

    Seems like like it would have been cheaper to buy a new 2021. 🙂 I can't think of anyone ever doing as much to their car as you. Not criticism, most of us need to do more, but, ...... damn. (smile)

    New Tires for our '07 MKX

    Be careful with this It's illegal with most building departments. (Not to mention insurance companies). It's not permitted in any building code and a fire hazard (a lot of fires have been traced to gas or oil stained carpeting on a garage floor). And the moisture can create mold and mildew in the carpet. I have some area carpets (old bath carpets so I can walk in the garage during winter without shoes, but none go under a car and I pitch the after one year.

    Power transfer unit went bad

    I use my Ford/Lincoln dealer to change the fluid. They only use Motorcraft (which I trust). I do it every year or two so its a mute point. (I only put on about ~9,000 year miles year and hardly ever go over 95).

    Full Synthetic Motor oil

    One of the poster mentioned Blackstone Labs. I'm attaching a YouTube video in which Ryan Stark of Blackstone Labs discusses the difference between conventional oil and synthetic. He does so explaining the real differences and what the laboratory can see when using one or the other. His experience and years of testing may surprise you and what opinions you may have formed based on false information.
