    Update to Android Auto with Sync3

    Waze must already be running on your phone before you plug it in. If it's still not working try rebooting the phone and restarting Waze and make sure you have the latest version of Waze.
  2. I agree it should work that way and it probably will in a future release.
  3. Why is it useless? Takes a few seconds. Bluetooth protocol probably doesn’t support that capability.

    Rain-sensing wipers

    If you disable rain sensing then it reverts to normal intermittent wipers. You probably have the stalk in the first on position (where you leave it for rain sensing operation) which is the on position for intermittent operation as well. Just pull the stalk down one time to the off position. Hi Lo Intermittent or rain sensing Off

    New guy with a key fob question

    If both fobs are recognized you could buy another one and program it yourself. Otherwise to reset the current fob you'd have to visit the dealer or a locksmith with a Ford IDS.

    New guy with a key fob question

    The reason you need 2 fobs to do it yourself isn't a technical requirement, it's a safety feature. You wouldn't want a valet or mechanic to be able to add their own key to your key.

    Worth a shot.

    New guy with a key fob question

    Not likely. These are pretty much binary conditions (it works or it doesn't). The fact that it hesitates to unlock even when he grabs the door handle along with the lack of approach lighting is what made me think it's a signal strength issue of some kind.

    The fob itself might be flaky. Definitely sounds like a weak signal.

    New guy with a key fob question

    Definitely sounds like a weak battery in one fob. Maybe the contacts are contaminated.

    Only primary phone connecting

    Not normal. I would try un pairing and repairing both phones.

    MKX Battery Warranty?

    Battery should be covered. Check with the service mgr or try another dealership.

    22 Way Ultra Seat Design

    I feel the same way about our standard reserve seats. They’re not uncomfortable but I just can’t find a perfectly comfortable position. Feels like I’m sitting on top of the seat. Then again I’ve been spoiled by my F150. Would like to move to an Explorer or Aviator. At some point.

    21" Wheels

    I prefer the grey wheels but obviously that’s an individual preference. Choices are always good.

    Blindspot sensors disabled while driving in the rain

    Probably the bikes or maybe the sensors got dirty or wet. I wouldn't worry about it until it happens again without the bikes.
