    Hello from the Gulf of Mexico

    They switched from dual to single horns. Lots of DIY dual upgrades on Edges. Do a forum or Google search

    2017 MKX Oil leak-recurring

    Main seal leaks are pretty rare even on higher mileage vehicles. Is it possible the oil wasn’t changed on schedule or that it ran out of oil? There was a problem with the 2.7L oil pans on some vehicles.

    2021 Nautilus front tire edge ware

    Well that’s about all you can do at this point. Maybe try running 2-3 psi higher than specified. If it persists have a good tire shop look at it.

    2021 Nautilus front tire edge ware

    20” or 21” wheels? When was the last rotation? Do the rears have the same pattern? Thats typical of low pressure but you said you checked it so I’m at a loss.

    Electronics Lock Up

    The sync 4 power button. It’s inside the volume control.

    Electronics Lock Up

    Try rebooting sync 4 by holding the power and right seek buttons together for 20 seconds.

    Engine Noise on 2010

    Cam phasers is a known issue on later models.
  8. One note - you have to get the Reserve II or 21” wheels to get adaptive suspension.
  9. The 2023 Nautilus order guide is out. Only 2 changes noted: Color - Bronze Smoke replaced by Jewel Sandstone Metallic. 101a package replaced by 100a pkg plus Premium Pkg. Order bank opens today, job 1 is 10/24.
  10. Just picked up this beauty to replace the MKX. Put a deposit on one in transit but they “accidentally” sold it to someone else. But ended up getting a similar one with x plan plus an extra $1K off for the mixup. Ceramic Pearl/Sandstone. 2.0L with massage seats. The seats and the tech are great and the 2.0L is a lot peppier than the MKX 3.7L. Most importantly- mama is happy.

    Water issue spare tire area

    Check the weatherstripping around the rear hatch. Also look for holes in the floor.

    Is it the horn or a chirp?

    Only a small percentage of water pumps fail but when they it’s bad. Keep the coolant changed every 2 years or so and chances are you’ll be fine, The double beep is because your wife exited the vehicle with the only fob so it’s warning you not to drive off without it. To avoid it keep a fob in the vehicle, don’t close the door all the way or turn the vehicle off before shutting the door.
  14. Never heard of that. Where did it break? Any rust or corrosion?

    Transmission ?

    Most likely just a small revision and new part # and either will work, but check the tag in the driver’s door jamb or look for the part # on the tyranny itself.

    Navigation in my car

    No they did not all come with navigation. What does it say on the upper right of the screen? If it says Info then you don’t have nav and adding the ads card won’t work.
  17. Exactly 23k miles on both sets. No cupping and there was some tread left.
  18. But do you have the 21” Pirellis? Mine had to be replaced at 23K miles (twice) due to noise.
  19. She let me drive it a couple of times…….

    Google Maps directions in HUD?

    Hey Dan. This was already asked and answered on Facebook. There is no HUD on any Nautilus.

    Tranny stuck in 5th

    Sounds like the transmission control module
  22. Pretty sure the 2017 used a 3g modem which ATT recently shut down. You’d have to upgrade the modem.
