    2017 lincoln mkx reserve

    I have a 2009 and regularly drive late model loaners. My opinion is the front seat compartment "feels" smaller due to the center consul and intrusion of the door design. I'm certain it was designed to give the feel of being compartmentized, but I prefer more "looseness". The ride in new Lincolns is more responsive and has more road feel. Not in a bad way, but different. I definitely don't like using the screen in place of physical knobs and switches however. And I rarely use voice commands. Can't remember the syntax most of the time. Too much to memorize.

    2011 MKX antenna

    I've never had a problem on my 09 MKX. A smaller antenna will give even weaker reception than the oem. What kind of problems are you experiencing ?

    Enigine light low oil pressure

    Pull your oil stick and look at the oil level. If the oil is creamish colored, theres water in the oil. If it looks like normal oil, there no water in the oil. If its creamy, then yes, you have coolant in the oil. Need to get it fixed ASAP to protect the bearings. Have it towed if necessary. Even so, it's possible that it's a blown head gasket, but failed water pump is much more common. If the oil on the dip stick looks ok, look at the water pump weap hole on the top of the engine. A water pump can fail internally (coolant in oil) or externally, seals fail and leaks externally. If there's coolant there, the water pump's inner o- ring is blown. There are two seals, when the inner seal fails, coolant leaks and is designed to leak out of the weap hole. (No coolant leaks if the outer seal fails. It's there to direct coolant leaking from the inner seal to the weap hole). If your unfamiliar with the weap hole, check out this thread: https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/26715-water-pump-weep-hole/

    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.

    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.

    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.

    MKX awd

    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.
  14. Makes me think that its coming from the noise canceling system. Possibly a bad connection is one of the microphones.
