    Update to Android Auto with Sync3

    If you use Android Auto, check this posting out on the Sync Forum. The new menu is nice, and maybe I just imaging it seems to be faster at least when I start up Waze. https://fordsyncforum.com/index.php?/topic/7003-new-version-of-android-auto-now-works-with-sync3/

    New guy with a key fob question

    I wonder if the fob was for another vehicle like mkc or some other, and it half programmed, or the fob doesn't send exactly the correct signal for the vehicle a MKX. Maybe look at the part numbers inside the FOB... Just a thought....

    Door water leak

    DebC, Do what I did, First make sure that you can repeat the door leaking like my video. If I remember correctly someone was guessing that the folded mirrors were causing the leaks, so you might test that theory by taking the MKX through a car wash with the mirrors folded. Then when you are pretty sure the case exists, take the car in to the dealer, and have the service manager pull the plastic under the speaker like in my video. What was funny when I took my MKX in to the the service manager said "oh that was just a one time occurrence", and it just so happened that it had rained heavily the night before and also the Service Manager had taken home an MKX, and he said "Watch this, I left the car out and I did not have any problems," then we went to the car and he pull the passenger door and it started draining water, He never argued with me any more. He ended up totally covering the door frame with a 3m sealing membrane. I look to see if I have the receipt where he did the repair. Good Luck, Mike

    110V Outlet Use?

    The one time I tried to use mine, I found that it does not work unless the ignition is on, unlike the USB that say on for a period of time.
