    Getting to the interior fuse box on a 2017

    Looks to be like this is the only way. I fiddled a bit with mine. Clips hold that whole piece in. At first I thought there may be a problem with those knobs and parking brake, but then everything is electrical so nothing to keep that panel from coming off. I did notice a couple of screws on that bottom piece but I'm not sure if they are connected. Just take it slow. From previous experiences, those plastic connectors do love to break every now and then, especially when using just a screwdriver.

    2019 Due ?

    A combination of talking to my dealership and logging into the Ford Etis website and looking at my VIN. The car didn't show up in ETIS until the week or two prior to build with and estimated build date of June 5th. Ended up being built on June 4th. The window sticker showed up the about a week and a half before build and the date on it changed a couple times as it went through the system.

    2019 Due ?

    Hi Funktastic. Also, just wondering for information sake...How did you obtain your build date of June 4th? From the date on the Window Sticker or another source? The reason I ask is because the date on our Window Stickers is not the actual build date. It is an administrative date/the date the sticker was released, which can be as little as several days to a week, or as much as 10 days or even >two weeks before the actual build date. If I remember correctly, my 2018 order took ~10 weeks from order date to delivery. My 2007 took 6 weeks from order to delivery. Both times I was told expect approximately 8 to 10 weeks. Of course, none of what I am stating matters for much more than anecdotal evidence of what happened in my particular case, so those wondering about their 2019's can take it for what it is worth. Another factor which may be in favor of those ordering 2019's is that Lincoln/Ford are not stocking dealers with MKZ's and Fusions sitting on their lots for the 2019 model year as they did in the past. Essentially, in most cases, Dealer orders are required to be Special customer orders for 2019's, except for the Hybrids. That may mean good news and shorter wait times for those of us who factory order, since hypothetically, Special Orders can be scheduled sooner after ordering. But that is just some hypothesizing by me at this point. Anyways, good luck to all my fellow and future MKZ drivers! 🙂

    Hi Funktastic. The trim level names have changed for 2019., so just to avoid confusion for others: The "Reserve II" trim level 3.0T AWD MKZ now comes with "Dynamic Torque Vectoring" as standard equipment. The 3.0 is not available on the "Reserve I" trim level at all.

    2019 Due ?

    Well I can tell you what my dealer told me when I ordered my car. Allotments are key here. I had an AWD 3.0 black label (which get prioritized before all over productions) and I had to wait a while. Order was placed I believe April 3rd, had a VIN by April 16th. Vehicle was built on June 4th and got the vehicle on June 27th. It was almost 12 weeks when I got it and the dealership said it was usually 8-12 weeks avg from order to delivery. But sometimes it can take them much longer depending on allocations.

    Hi 1984. Only a guess of course, but I would surmise a transit time of less than two weeks if it ships before the holiday. However, keep in mind that a car is not driven the back door of the factory and right onto a rail car. There are logistics involved as to how cars are loaded and shipped. So cars can sit for varying periods of time before loading. Again, just my educated opinion, but I think there is a chance, although it may be slim, that you may have your car for Christmas. As you stated, the abbreviated holiday manufacturing and shipping schedules are working against you. But being close to Hermosillo is in your favor too, if they have it built in time for shipping before the holiday shut down. Your Dealer has access to all the production and shipping information. Some Dealers are good at communicating this information to the customer, some not so good. Let them know you would like to be kept notified and don't be afraid to check with them once a week or so. I hope you can get that nice Christmas present you are hoping for.

    That is an excellent standard feature. It is noticeable when adding throttle to exit a corner.

    Oh yeah Motorcraft for sure, i did notice what looked to be a burn holein this harness, not sure what it is but the single wire inside appeared to be ok

    I believe that all 3.0 reserve AWD cars come with the dynamic torque vectoring included.

    Sweet order! I too avoided the sunroof like the plague for similar reasons. I notice the Driver’s Package is gone. Does the 3.0 AWD come with the Driver’s Package suspension and torque vectoring standard now?

    2019 Due ?

    The dealership with which I placed my order sends orders on Tuesdays only, apparently, and I ordered mine on a Wednesday so it’s unlikely mine would be included in the 12/3 build week, I’d think, but thanks for the encouragement. Presuming my ‘Z is built by the end that week, about how much transit time should one allow for a new MKZ to make its way from Hermosillo to Oklahoma? Two weeks? Three? More? (I realize the timing of things—the holidays—may slow things down in my case.)

    Hi 1984. Welcome back and good luck with your 2019 MKZ order! Hope it arrives quickly. Depending on your Dealers order allotment and how quickly they place the order, you still have a chance at a Christmas arrival. As of 10/15 they were scheduling for the build week of 12/3. Good luck!

    2019 Due ?

    Yesterday, I ordered a 2019 MKZ Hybrid Reserve II in Rhapsody Blue. I hope it will be in my garage by Christmas (although I realize that may be an unrealistic target date for delivery). In nearly all respects, I really like the inclusion of so many features as standard equipment on the new Z. In my view, a luxury car that purports to be, and aspires to live up to the status of, a true luxury car should just come automatically with things like premium floor mats, heated and cooled front seats, etc. The only option the car that I ordered will not have is one that I wanted—and would quite happily/willingly have paid extra $ to get but could not get without being forced to accept something else I specifically did not want—and that is the 20-speaker Revel audio system. I will have to “settle” for the 14-speaker Revel audio system because the 20-speaker Revel is packaged with the panoramic sliding glass roof that I very much did NOT want. (The panoramic sliding roof is a deal-breaker for me. Too much cost, weight, and complexity, and just something to get stuck in the open position someday and cost $$ to get fixed. No thanks.) This marks my return to the Lincoln MKZ (have an MKC at present and had an older ‘Z before that). I look forward to being back on this forum.

    Hi Robert. As mentioned above, look to see if you are logged in. If you are not logged in (as in my case), log back in. If you are logged in (as in MKZMark's case), log out and log back in. Hopefully that should solve the problem as it did for us. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Radio static

    Hi willy j. Not exactly sure what is causing your radio static issues. However, what brand of spark plugs did you install? Hopefully the Motorcraft OEM replacement? Other brands of spark plugs have been known to cause issues with our cars. Hopefully one of our techie members will jump in with more help. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Radio static

    I recently had to change a fuel injector on the wife's car, apparently there's a lot of static now on the radio now since then, could a loose battery ground cause this issue or does it have something to do with the new spark plugs. Thanks everyone out there in lincoln land.

    My App is fine, never had an issue. Now the owners website, I've been locked out for probably months, I just get the 'Circle of Death' in the center of the screen, and it never signs in. Tried a few browsers with the same result.

    Lincoln Way app down

    Hi MKZMark. Just checked mine and saw that I was logged out of the app (which never happened before since I purchased the car in June). Once I logged back in, everything was fine. Try logging back in. If you are still logged in, try logging out and back in. Everything was working correctly this morning and earlier this afternoon, so not sure why this happened. Same thing with the Lincoln Owners website. Once I logged in, everything was working as normal. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    I figure this panel has to pop off, I just want to make sure I don't break anything.

    My vehicles are missing from the phone app and the owner website and it won't let me add them. Anyone else seeing this?

    Getting to the interior fuse box on a 2017

    I just took at look at mine. Now, I have a hybrid so it wouldn't surprise me if the set up is different. But, if yours looks like mine, you are supposed to get on your back to access it. I see no other way. It's way too far up there. They probably do this just so you don't mess with the fuses except to change them.
