  1. I have a 2011 Lincoln MKX and need to purchase an aftermarket backup camera. I have decided on going the aftermarket route as the dealer price is quite costly. After lengthy research online I get the feeling that purchasing an aftermarket backup camera is nothing but a crap shoot. Some people have problems with reliability and installation …. Yet some people have good experiences. Some people get the camera grid/guide lines yet some people don’t get the grid/guide lines and if they do, they lose them soon after the replacement install. So my question is … can anyone suggest and/or recommend a good quality reliable aftermarket camera? Thanks, g. Victoria, BC Canada

    SYNC - No Option for Incoming Calls

    I just tried a different phone. It does the identical thing noted above in my original post.
  3. I recently purchased a 2011 Lincoln MKX with the MyLincoln Touch and the 2nd generation SYNC 2 Services & App system. The mobile device I’m using is an iPhone 8 with the most recent IOS (IOS version 13.3.1). When I receive incoming calls I DO NOT get the iPhone, Speaker, SYNC on-screen pop-up option on my mobile device (please see attached/posted picture). It works fine on outgoing calls, I dial the number and the on-screen pop-up option is displayed on my mobile device. Correct me if I’m wrong - When your mobile device is connected to your vehicle system ... the SYNC option is the default setting on both incoming and outgoing calls (the SYNC option is confirmed by a check mark - see attached/posted picture). At times, incoming calls will connect via SYNC, at other times it will connect via iPhone. It will also connect via iPhone then after a second or two, automatically go to SYNC. There is no consistency and no on-screen pop-up option at all. When I initially set-up my mobile device, this option always popped up on BOTH incoming and outgoing calls. Something changed, be it, an incompatible iPhone update or a setting on either my iPhone device or in car SYNC system. I am baffled and can’t figure it out. I’ve tried: Master reset on in car SYNC system. Disconnecting my iPhone from the in car SYNC system and reconnecting on numerous occasions. Please note, my in car SYNC system has not been updated for years. I contacted Lincoln and they indicated that because the SYNC in car system hasn’t been updated for a number of years (multiple updates), I must go to the dealership to update all the previous updates individually as previous updates are not available online. I’m told that I’m not able to go from an old, old, old version (last updated in 2013) to the current update (version 3.10). I’m not sure how accurate or correct this information is. My Lincoln dealer was not aware of this version update process. They believed that the current update could be updated on the vehicle’s SYNC system regardless of what version was currently on the system. I’ve yet to try the current version 3.10 update on my SYNC system that currently has a version from 2013. Regardless, I’m not sure whether a SYNC in car system update will fix the problem I’ve noted-above. Like I previously mentioned, the on screen pop-up option did display on my mobile device when I originally set up my mobile device. Something happened thereafter. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  4. I have a 2011 Lincoln MKX. Can someone please confirm if there power window lock control illuminates when driving lights are on. All the power window switches illuminate on the master power window control but my power window lock control does not. There seems to be some confusion at my Lincoln dealer whether the power window lock on/off control illuminates or not. I would appreciate if someone could confirm this on there vehicle. Thanks.
  5. I have a 2011 Lincoln MKX (Limited Edition) with a vista roof panoramic sunroof. Can someone tell me whether the motor is located behind the front or rear headliner? Is there two motors? One for the glass and one for the shade? Thanks.

    Power window child safety

    I have a 2011 Lincoln MKX and was wondering whether the power window child safety lock and unlock switch is suppose to be illuminated when your lights are on like the power window switches? This is the switch located on the master power window control on the drivers side. Thanks, g. Victoria, BC, Canada

    Rain-sensing wipers

    Just an update on this thread...the wiper switch/stalk was faulty and needed to be replaced.

    IA backup keys

    I guess the wording in the manual confused me ... the manual refers to a mechanical key and an IA backup key...obviously they are the same thing. Thanks for the reply.

    IA backup keys

    Hi, I have a 2011 Lincoln MKX.... The owners manual refers to... (page 91) “Your vehicle’s IA backup keys were issued with a security tag that provides important vehicle key cut information. What IA backup keys are they referring to? They refer to the removable mechanical key blade in a different paragraph. The security tag has vehicle cut information. ... cut information for what keys? I don’t get it. Anyone? Thanks, g.

    Rain-sensing wipers

    Both controls are set to “0”.

    Rain-sensing wipers

    Thanks for the reply. The wiper stalk in my vehicle does not click into any position (moving the stock up and down). It allows you to move it down for a single wipe but doesn’t click into any position. Now the intermittent control, turns from “0” to the highest intermittent speed by turning the the end of the stalk towards the window and away from the window. I again tried to disable the rain-sensing wiper feature and the wiper turns on at the low intermittent speed when the end of the stock is set to “0”. It will only turn off when I enable the rain-sensing wiper feature. I’ve included a picture of the wiper stalk in my vehicle. I’m completely stumped. thanks, g.

    Rain-sensing wipers

    I have a 2011 Lincoln MKX with the rain-sensing wipers feature. I’m having the following problem: If I disable the rain-sensing wipers feature on the message center vehicle options, the wipers will intermittently come on and won’t turn off. If I enable this feature, the wipers don’t come on intermittently and everything is fine. Am I missing something here? Also, the manual for this model year says if your vehicle is equipped with the rain-sensing wipers feature there are no intermittent wipe settings. So, if you disable the the rain-sensing wipers feature you have no intermittent wipers at all? I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks, g. Victoria, BC, Canada
