    Sync Update Problems

  2. Found out today that Android auto navigation now shows turn by turn in the gauge cluster. Should read the change log more carefully.

    heated steering wheel control

    Yes exit Android auto via the exit app in Android auto and when done simply click on Android auto icon to get back to it. You can jump between Android auto and stock all you want without disconnecting.
  4. Just thought I would share. I did not jailbreak my sync 3 but did do the 3.4 update which was very easy. https://cyanlabs.net/tutorials/sync-3-automated-method-update-to-3-4/ https://youtu.be/jFY0Tp-oWaU https://youtu.be/ETabAvVt4HM

    Sync 3 randomly beeps and functions selected without input

    This sounds like more of a hardware issue but have you tried updating to 3.4 version https://cyanlabs.net/tutorials/sync-3-automated-method-update-to-3-4/. But first do a master reset see if that addresses any gremlins.

    2017 MKX Black Label

    I changed mine for the first time at 70k both front and back. They told me they could have saved the rotors if I wanted to get the resurfaced. Live in IL... unfortunately.
  7. The vehicle is great and I've enjoyed it since 2016 myself I got the 3.7 l engine and it has been my greatest regret not getting the 2.7 though I have a lead foot and a 3.7 is plenty for anybody driving normally. I believe the 3.7 has a better reliability than the 2.7. Although many people don't care, My only call out for 2016 would be to get one with sync 3 as opposed to my sync touch. Sync 3 gives you Android, Auto and Apple CarPlay which completely transform how you interact with the car and your phone and your media and so on.

    Thoughts on nautilus parts fitting mkx

    Hey I did end up getting a replacement bezel from the Nautilus for my 2016 mkx (the plastic piece that goes around cup holders and into the center console.) Happy to report it works and fits just fine.
  11. Hey All, My 2016 mkx reserve is at the dealer getting the recall done on the brake hose 68k. However I also got a check engine light that lead to a faulty catalytic converter. My question is what is the warranty on catalytic converters and is it dependent on state. I'm in IL. Thanks for the help,
  12. Looking to replace my console cup holder bezel because one of the clips in the front has broken off and now I'm getting squeaking. Would like to use nautilus part since it has the retractable um...adjustors? not sure what to call it but basically as opposed to the MKX's rubber. Has anybody had any experience with it and do you think that woudl be a part that got modified as interior change was relatively minor.

    Double Beep!

    It's silly to you not me and others that complain about it. Again defending a poor implementation. Your response should be limited to "I don't share your opinion but I understand why you may not like it.".

    Cup holder assembly.

    Hi looking to replace the cup holder assembly in my 16 mkx. I believe the 17 has a newer version of the cupholder? 16s have a rubber bump and I think the 17s and up have a retractable buttons that or whatever you would call it. Can somebody confirm that on a 17 or up. I want to replace because I'm getting some squeaking and one of the tabs that hold it in place is broken. Any idea how to go about getting.just that part. Pics attached.
