    Is this used to open a gate or provide access? if so, nearby magnetic fields can interfer. I'm not entirely certain, but it may be possible that the windshield may have a coating that's interfering. Do you have a film on your windows? (Some are metallic).

    Power Transfer Unit Leaking

    Sorry, missed your question until today. I had to look it up. It was 115,429. (It's a 2009). They replaced it with a new design, larger sump, bigger bearing. Think that's what they told me.

    Rain-sensing wipers

    So if the rain sensing feature is set to "off", and there is no intermittent cycles, what happens if you turn the front wiper control to, say, mid way? BTW, I would try turning off the courtesy wipe and see if they still operate this way. (Just as a test.)

    Backup Camera

    Ever figure this out? If not, easy process, go to the system settings, choose "vehicle", and then "rear view camera". You can turn the guidelines back on.

    2008 MKX Securilock system

    Hey Larry, did lubing the hood switch fix the non-starting issue?

    Rain-sensing wipers

    I'm having trouble seeing your pic. Are BOTH controls set to 0 or just the inside one (which controls to rear wiper)?

    sorry don't know how to delete

    Tires are everything when it comes to noise. I ran Bridgestone Dueler Ecopia's. Quiet and smooth. (But I'm running 20" wheels with AWD. Another good time for your 08 would be BF Goodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT or the MIchelin Crossclimate SUV tire. All of these will set you back between $170 and $200 each, but you get what you pay for.

    Boat, small RV, cargo trailer, something to hang a set of truck nuts on ……….
  13. One other thing I was told at my local dealer, the actual key being used on the 2017+ models can't be cut using existing key cutting equipment. Local dealer has an agreement with a local locksmith to cut keys for the new models. Said the equipment costs a bunch ($1500 - $2500 ?? forget what he said but it was high) and they had a hard time justifying the investment. Believe he said they charge over $300 to cut a key (the locksmith has to actually come to the ford garage and cut it in his truck. They charge an addon for this …."service")

    Navigation Map Update Offer

    About a year ago, I had called NOW and one of the questions that came up was the Sync 3 map update. NOW told me that they had never received any information from Ford on the system and could proceed until they do. Wonder if Ford went with a different supplier for the S3 system and is unable update for some strange reason? NOW said they have no problem furnishing updates but are unable to proceed.
