In affected vehicles, the battery cable harness may have substandard clearance, which could allow the harness to contact the transmission shifter cable bracket. Contact between the battery cable harness and the transmission shifter cable bracket could wear through the insulation of the cable, resulting in the cable shorting to ground, increasing the risk of overheated or melted wiring, as well as fire. Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition. Ford is aware of three vehicle fires potentially related to this issue. This action affects 54,411 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories and 5,253 in Canada. Affected vehicles were built at Oakville Assembly Plant from Nov. 12, 2014, to Sept. 11, 2017. Dealers will remove the four battery harness clips at the battery tray and one elbow guide, then install a wire channel shield and protective sleeve to the battery cable harness. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S41.

    Does 2016 MKX Have Fog Lights?

    Short answer is no as Cosmos36 responded, but the LED running light (under headlamps) are quite bright, although I have LED headlamps so I really have never seen a need for fog lamps (yes I had them on previous vehicles).

    New SYNC 3 upgrade available.

    What is your version of Sync, maybe you updated Sync along with the maps? 19205 is the update number of Sync 3. The other thing you could look at, is what files are on the USB, if they are different, then you are probably updating different parts of Sync 3

    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

    When I looked at general --> apps this weekend, the Lincoln App was the only phone app listed, there was a Sirius icon. I don't think you are alone with this.

    Just update my Sync3 from 18025 to 18093, it took about 5 minutes once thumb drive was plugged into MKX. Not sure what was fixed, but here is what they are reporting on the Sync Forum https://fordsyncforum.com/index.php?/topic/6533-sync-3-30-build-18093;-seems-to-have-fixed-a-couple-of-my-issues;-what-have-you-seen/ I did find that waze on IOS has been updated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvFrDYlOrto Now if it only Waze on Applink would start working for Android, I can wish, can't I?
