  3. NOTICE: Whatever the amplifiers are capable of, it appears Lincoln has lowered the audio gain in Sync 3.4 so they will no longer reach full potential! The volume scale goes 0 to 30. According to my ears, prior volumes of 15 seem to require around 20 to match the same level now. My guess is it's either an anomaly or they want to reduce the amount of blown speaker warranty claims. The audio signal from the ACM is sent digitally via USB to the DSP in amplifier. I believe the volume control is done over CAN HS to the Renesas 70F3579 micro-controller in the amplifier. I flashed my Sync back to 3.3 before I had chance to check the ACM values with ForScan. If anyone with ForScan and Sync 3.4 can report the values for 727-02-01 and 727-03-01 it would be appreciated.

    Traded in 2017 MKZ Select for 2020 MKZ Reserve

    I had a 2017 MKZ Select 3.0 AWD that also had that vibration at exactly 64 mph. My solution - seriously - was to go either 63 or 65 mph, and there was no vibration. It was that mph-specific in my car! As much as I LOVED that car - and I did! - when the lease ended in April of this year I just didn't want to get the same car again. I ended up, and am very happy with, a 2020 Dodge Charger AWD.

  6. Hi jm. If performed properly, there should be no issues. First...I would recommend the Motorcraft replacement plugs, not any new-fangled "Double Unobtanium, triple electrode, five prong super plug" replacements. Second...I would also recommend having a Ford or Lincoln Dealer perform the service, especially since yours is Hybrid. However, if you are looking to save money, I would recommend finding an established shop/tech in your area that you can trust (family/friends recommendations?), as opposed to a NAPA or other big box, oil change type shop. Again, especially since yours is a Hybrid and your Lincoln and Ford Dealers will be more familiar with any intricacies of Hybrid service. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  7. Got over 110K miles and it's due for spark plug change as dealer recommended service. Wanted to hear some feedback on spark plug changes at 100K mile services. Any misfire issues any hints? Is this dealer specific service or Napa can handle it? I just want it get done right so to minimize dealing with misfires and coil issues after service.

    Radio Antenna

    Hi jm. Due to the panoramic roof. Not sure why you posted the part number though. Did you have a question about the part? Good luck.

    Be Safe out there

    A great bunch of posts... Since I started this in May my now 16 month old MKZ has 5550 miles on it - a whole 1000 miles in 4 months! But we can now go to the store for shopping and some restaurants are open and have outdoor seating which we have been enjoying 2 or 3 times a week. Plus, I had 5 stents put in 3 weeks ago for now I get to drive 30 miles 3 times a week for cardiac rehab. Yay me!! Take care all, and drive safely!!

    Be Safe out there

    I'm at 32K now.... will be driving the 40 from LA to ??? east coast.... so about 5K there.... EDIT:Opps, it's 27900, I must have been adding the miles I would have after my trip. 😎
  15. Hi Loki. Congratulations! She looks great! Best of luck and many happy, safe miles! EDIT - Loki, do you know there is a button on the dashboard to manually turn off/on the "proximity sensors" on an as-needed basis?
  16. Exactly! I didn't want white or silver either but the copper burgundy comes with cappuccino or black, I'm sick of both so in order to get the interior I wanted I had to go white, the fact they limit your options boggles my mind, they would sell more if people could choose what they like. So last time was for the exterior, this one the interior, the most important was the 3.0 TT AWD. As for vibration, these have followed me from a few cars, it's like it skips every other car. I'm sensitive to it and in this car it's either a multiple wheel balance or flat spots from sitting for more than a few days, in hot weather the condition is to a much lesser degree. I'm making an appointment this week so we'll see.
  17. Enjoy it! I turned in my 2017 3.0 for a 2020 as well. Same reason: there won't be any more, although I did come very close to getting a Genesis G70 3.3 Sport. I have the same color interior, which we love. I still don't know why they restrict exterior/interior color choices. If I want a green plaid interior with purple exterior, that's my business. Back in the day, you could get whatever you wanted, no matter how hideous. Mine is Silver Radiance. I've had too many white Lincolns. Silver was never a favorite of mine but this is different. I hope they can cure your vibration easily. I've had it up to 90 and it's vibration-free.

    2019 3.0t AWD / DOES NOT NEED TUNE!

    Have you run it at the dragstrip? Mine with just a tune would squeal all 4 tires leaving the line for a good 15ft.

    2019 3.0t AWD / DOES NOT NEED TUNE!

    As somebody who tuned his previous MKZ, trust me, you are not going to run 12's stock. The sift points are lower stock and the engine most definitely makes more power when tuned for 93, keep in mind the calibration stock is to allow for 87. Mine with traction issues tuned on 93 went 12.7@108 and pulled an SRT Challenger 3 times by half a second at GLD in Union Grove, Wisc. I now have a brand new stock 2020 MKZ and can feel the difference between the tuned 17 and my 20.

    Sync 3.4?

    Well, my USB stick of flac music won’t browse with 3.4. I tried to re-index it but couldn’t find the option or Sync command. Flashed it back to 3.3 once again. Turned Lincoln Way (Lincoln Connect in 3.3) off. Browsing is back, and I noticed the stereo is louder. The same song in 3.3 at level 16 needed to be at 22 in 3.4. Lincoln must have lowered the audio gain. Probably too many warranty speaker replacements.

    CD player power wire

    that or, the eject button is dirty inside with the connections... cheapest way is get the CD cleaner....
  24. I traded in my 12.7 second '17 MKZ that was my favorite color burgundy velvet for a brand new 2020 pearl metallic white. Both have the 3.0 AWD twin turbo but the new one has every option except for heads up display and panoramic roof, I did get the moonroof though. I wanted to keep the '17 but the MKZ is dead after 2020 so I wanted to get one brand new while I could. A friend of mine bought my MKZ so I know it has a good home. I seriously wanted the copper burgundy that closely matches the one I had but you can't get the terracotta bridge of weir leather with that color and I'm sick of plain black leather, it's nice but didn't want it this time. So white was it, the Revel Ultima audio system is both awesome and horrible all at the same time. If you have a very good recording it sounds competition levels good, playing the demo that is included in the system blows your mind, then you hear music on the sat radio and it's bleh... too much sounds over processed. Music off the iPod sounds mostly awesome. Is it worth the extra cost with the luxury package, yes. The adaptive suspension, seems no different than without, the adaptive jewel looking headlights are cool and seriously light up the road, the lane keeping is creepy, the adaptive cruise control is the same as I had in my 2013 Taurus Limited except it can stop and go, the massage seats make the seats a little less comfortable than those without, same as in the Taurus except the massage is a lot better in the MKZ, it does as described. The proximity sensors all over the car can drive you crazy when you park in your garage. There is a vibration while driving at 65 plus that feels like a wheel is out of balance so that needs to be checked out and the rear window privacy shade rattles. I hit 1000 miles this week after 5 weeks and mileage is averaging 23, power is excellent of course but I did have boost cut occur once which is very un-nerving. I don't know if I'm going to tune this one or not, the plus of the tune in the last one was an increase in mpg as well as performance, on vacation last year we averaged 32mpg for 500 miles going 70mph. I love the car so far, the dealer better be able to figure out the vibration, I HATE vibrations! 🙂

    CD player power wire

    I’d just like to disable it if at all possible

    CD player power wire

    You could have a dirty read lens/head. You can try one of these https://www.ebay.com/itm/Laser-Lens-Cleaner Or use denatured alcohol on a cotton swab to clean the head drum (may require disassembly)
  27. Is the rear motor mount still available?
  28. My CD player in my 2009 MKZ non touch screen and non gps constantly sounds like it’s try to eject or load a disc. After about 3 minutes it stops and reads disc error. There is no discs inside the DVD player. It’ll do that if I open my door even with key out of ignition. It’ll do it if I start my car as well. I thought about just trying to cut the power to the CD player as I don’t use it. The rest of the stereo works great. I just want to try to cut power to the CD player only. I want to keep power to the rest of the stereo. Is that possible? If so, what wire? Ty

    Sync 3.4?

    Hmm.. did not know that it would do OS update via that modem... I still have the 3 months/3gigs free, I think... unless there is a time frame to enable it.... don't want to pay for the 'HotSpot' feature... 😎
