    Backup Camera quits

    I got 14 MKz. Wondering if it's still covered.
  3. Quick update. Replaced with Autozone 12v battery. Same physical specs as Ford OEM 12v Battery.

    Backup Camera quits

    Check the camera wiring harness along its length to where it enters the interior of the car. IIRC, there was a TSB for backup camera wiring chafing but I can't find it right now so IDK what MYs are covered.

    Future of the MKZ: Articles of Speculation

    That is interesting. I like the thought of a performance hybrid, but whether that can be done is questionable, given the tight space of a sedan. I'd be happy with anything similar to the current MKZ 3.0T, if it looked no worse. I love back end still, and performance wise only the FWD bothers me. I wonder if the AWD system is a sensing type using an electrical signal to engage the rear drive? In the first A4WD Fords, that meant an electromagnetic clutch, which can be triggered additionally by an add on switch etc. If so, I'd want to force AWD any time I intend to hit the gas, before hitting the gas. That should be built in, but Ford is known for not seeing well, what needs to be done.
  6. All, 14 MKZh backup camera seems to quit in the middle of reverse drive. Sometimes backup video does not even show. I am not sure if it's camera of a system.

    Best way to fix small chips

    Dr. Colorchip is the best and perfect color match . . For deep chips put on then next fill it again next day , while not perfect it will make chips tolerable .

    Recommend me a cell phone holder

    I found a similar goose neck holder at a local store and did some fiddling inside the store. Seems like, even with a 12" neck it will only raise the phone around 6" because it can't come straight up. The neck still have to do an "S" turn to move the phone far enough away from you and then rotate again to point the phone towards you. Also not sure how long the single screw will last that attaches the neck to the cup. At this point I'm passing on it. I looked at the vent mounted magnetic holder. Came to the conclusion that the charging wires (phone and dash cam} start to get cumbersome. After some more shopping I ordered this one: https://www.amazon.com/KV-Electronics-3-Cigarette-Compitable/dp/B07MMP2TWJ/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=magnetic+Cigarette+Lighter+Phone+Holder+Car+Mount&qid=1555804655&s=wireless&sr=1-8 Just hope the cigarette lighter holder is strong enough.

  13. That's somewhat encouraging. But then again, automakers have been known to file for trademarks and then never use the name.
  14. Glad it could be of help to you.

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    Precise reason why I chose this dual camera: The powered rear sunshade will have enough clearance to function. A itty bit may rub against the camera as the shade goes up, but does not interrupt function or get stuck when retracting down. Rear camera unit records in 1080p as well. You can have the shade up while the camera still sees everything just fine. I have taken my vehicle surveillance to the next level: Razo d'Action 360 Camera! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07M8P8Q2Y?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title Pricy for sure, but I really like this unit. I still use the Aukey DR02 since those cameras are good for showing vehicles in distance. But the Razo 360 camera comes into play for side views and potentially defense against car vandals. It's fun to use for other things beyond just dash/parking surveillance. The 4k resolution is really nice too.

My initial take is MKZ will evolve into the Mustang's equivalent in time. The current S550 will stick around longer, but that will be so Lincoln can pioneer a CD6 coupe that will be one step ahead of the Mustang. What helps Lincoln stay exciting are the new advancements that keep it ahead of Ford cousins. Combined with more invested interior and passenger involvement, to justify that luxury premium feel of spending more. Engine Choices: 3.0T will be a given. I would absolutely love to have a 5.0L Coyote Grand Touring Hybrid for the top tier performance choice. That motor is under works for future Mustang but might have a surprise show up in a vehicle like this first. If destined for creation, such a vehicle will come 2020 - 2021 (with solid information coming as 2019 begins to end). Here's hoping! I'll definitely hold off caving to the Aviator in order to return back in a heavily evolved MKZ.

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    Does that get in the way of the rear sunshade? That's the only reason I haven't purchase a rear one yet.

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    Thanks for the tip - just installed one. Crazy people you are being watched...
  19. Wow Izzy, this is fantastic! As soon as the tail light arrives I will watch it again several times... and post a pic of the "new" and old tail lights. Thanks, Peter
  20. Hello Checkerboard see if this video helps.
  21. Well, I took the plunge and ordered a used RR tail light/brake light assembly off of eBay for my wife's 2012 MKZ hybrid. Her brake light stopped working, a well-documented problem with these cars (despite only 77,200 miles!). I would love to see some instructions on how to remove the old tail light and lens and replace it with the new/used one. Anybody know how to do this, or perhaps know of a place where step-by-step directions are available? I appreciate any help , thanks, Peter
  22. The Black Label Lincoln Nautilus, heralded for its sophisticated good looks and welcoming cabin, has earned a spot on the exclusive Wards 10 Best Interiors list for 2019. View the full article
  23. It is beautiful inside and out. Youthful with with a nice confidence to it. I really like it. But 280hp is not enough for me. Drop the 3.0L in with rear biased all wheel drive and aggressive body and wheel changes and I’m a buyer. One can wish.

    Rim Corrosion

    Rather than "reading" the road ahead the sensors read the downward acceleration of the wheel into the pothole, and slow that acceleration so the wheel glides over to some extent. At the same time it preps the rear wheel to do the same when it arrives over the hole. Good stuff.

    I got the vent-mount magnetic one and put it on the left side, works great. For the wife's we got a vent mount spring-loaded one from Staples and also works well.
  26. Expressively designed and effortlessly nimble, the all-new Lincoln Corsair is a spacious two-row SUV that combines refined power and a wealth of purposeful technologies in a sanctuary from the outside world. View the full article
