    auto insurance plug-in monitor

    Insurance rates in my part of Florida have almost doubled this year. I 'am talking about a $1200 rising to $2200. and more. Yes, before you suggest speeding tickets and accidents I have none. Thank you.

    The sensor plugs into the Lincoln computer port. Lincoln and Ford use to void warranties for plug in's to their computer enhancements.

    Tire size question

    Has anyone installed 245 45R19 tires on the stock 19” rims? Any clearance issues?
  6. Hello, Jakevandee what size subwoofers.

    auto insurance plug-in monitor

    Hi HotRodLinc. This is offered by some insurance companies, and is strictly voluntary. If you agree to do it, you can lower your rates if your driving habits fit your insurance company guidelines. But again, it is strictly voluntary. So if you don't want to, just don't. It has nothing to do with and does not affect the vehicle warranty. Good luck.

    My car insurance offers a "potential" discount if I use it but certainly not mandatory. This has nothing to do with Lincoln so there should be no risk to your warranty.

    Do they want to, or are just saying that you have to?

  11. Insurance companies today want to install a monitor chips in our cars to monitor how fast we drive, how many hard stops we make, what hour we drive, how many miles and many more big brother items. This is sick. It's plugged into the diagnostic port under the dash. I refuse to do it. Is there anyone else dealing with this. I am 72 ears old, with no teenage drivers and drive no more than about 10,000 miles a year. Anyone else dealing with this? Can they void our warranties with this crap

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    Having the rear-facing cam is what caught the guy, that's why I got the dual set that Zalvern got.
  13. Hi. Sorry, I didn't see these notifications until now. Yes, our issue was the transmission as well and we had to get a new one put it. Our dealership ended up finding us a used one out of a wrecked car and it cost us half the price of a new one. No warranty covered our repairs as we were outside of all the warranty periods with over 100,000 miles at the time. They also told us the transmission is sealed and they don't work on them, they only replace them. I'm glad they are covering it under warranty for you. I would have never guessed that sound would be coming from a transmission. Good luck!

    3.0T oil change ?

    Finally got around to doing my first oil change. It was really easy. I haven't ever seen a oil plug like this one. There is really no reason not to do this yourself it is so easy! The filter looked really dirty. Maybe they always look like this? Hopefully the dealer did actually change the oil as they said and not just reset the oil change gauge.

    Welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum

    It was, indeed, the APIM. They finally replaced it after 3 mis-tries. But I guess that they have to demonstrate to Ford/Lincoln that they can't get it to function any other way. But, alas, all is well and it works just like it is supposed to now!

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    As a retired state Trooper you can imagine how ticked I am at seeing this!!! My blood boils when these morons just drive off like that. He would NOT have wanted me putting the cuffs on him when we took him down!!! I just took delivery (4 weeks ago today) I my 2019 MKZ RI - and I love it. I haven't yet installed the dash cam - a little pride in how pretty this is over my previous bow tie car. But I think that this may be the day. I know how valuable the dash cam is for civilians and Troopers. I ALWAYS had mine on. A perp that tried to run from me fell face first into the gravel when his pants fell off his butt. Then he thought he could file a complain of "police brutality" against me. That's fine - filing a false report was just one more felony change! Anyway, I think Lincoln has a OEM dash cam that the dealer can install. I may stop there on y way to Kiwanis this morning. Like everyone else I am happy you were PHYSICALLY hurt - but I am saddened at the rest of the pain you have to endure now. Stay safe!! Ed
  17. As posted in the other forum, wife's car needs a new transmission. Probably the bearing issue posted there. Go there for more details.
  18. Hi, I have the 2016 mkz with the 11 speaker (base), and I found out the rear speaker amp is just for the rear deck speakers and it is a monoblock amp. The speakers are also 2ohms so if I swap them out and from the amp connect leads to a subwoofer would it work? Could anything really go wrong if I try it.

    Auto Climate Control & Air Conditioning

    Hi Scott. As mentioned in posts above, the AC light will stay on until you press it to turn it off, or turn the climate control off completely. This is also all explained in our Owners Manual. Contrary to what people think of with home AC, automotive "AC" is not only cooling. The "AC" is used to dehumidify the air when necessary, at any temperature. That includes when the HVAC system is calling for heat or cooling. Good luck.

    Battery Drain?

    The battery on my '17 died this past Thursday. I was heading home from working out, got in the car, and all I got was a clicking sound and some noise from the rear speakers, which was odd. I tried several times to get it to start, and finally for some reason it turned over enough to start. I got home, left it running in the garage, and called the dealer. I drove right there and they did the 2 1/2 hour test and installed a new battery. The car only has a little over 18,000 miles. Now I am concerned that I have some sort of a battery drain issue??!!
  22. One more dumb question, when the temp is turned up to a point where the AC does not need to run, should the AC light stay on or turn off? Mine stays on. Thanks!
  23. Or just get a vanity plate for the front
  24. I just wanted to say thanks - I was wondering if this was possible and this thread gave me the nudge to go for it. I upgraded to Sync3 (had already done that in my 15 F150) and at the same time replaced my FMIC in my 13. Couple of things I learned.... The unit I had in my F150 I removed when I traded, I couldn't install it in the MKZ because the brackets wouldn't work. I ended up buying another screen/apim combo on eBay from a 17mkz to ensure I got the brackets. The FMIC I bought on ebay was brand new, and did not come with the HVAC vents at the top. They are a seperate part, but appear to not be in stock ANYWHERE in the US. Going to have to go back to ebay for a FMIC with the vents. Pay attention to the FMIC you buy - my car has heated/cooled seats and heated steering wheel. I was able to snag a FMIC that had physical buttons for all of them, you will be looking at the very bottom, and can tell what it does/does not have by the number of buttons. I used Forscan to backup my existing FMIC as-built, and then put that in on the swapped in as-built, and even though the new FMIC has auto start/stop cancel, and a few other things my car didn't have button wise, it all works fine. I've got to deal with the corners not lining up - anyone come up with a better solution to that?

    SYNC2 to SYNC3 upgrade

    I made the switch - got the apim& screen from car-part for a fantastic price. all in cost me about $330. and my park assist still works.

    Thank Izzy, After watching the video I think I'm going to let best buy tackle this one. Going to call Crutchfield to see what speaker will be compatible with the amp in the car.

    Also the Metra 72-5600 you will need for the rear decks 6X9 speakers. https://www.amazon.com/Metra-72-5600-Speaker-Harness-1998-UP/dp/B001OAB6BW/ref=asc_df_B001OAB6BW/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312069187648&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=12461729238930487549&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1026528&hvtargid=pla-435899534081&psc=1

    This is from a fusion but practically the same. On the window control panel just pry up and thee should be only one screw. The Metra 72-5602 are the connectors you need for all four doors. https://www.amazon.com/Metra-72-5602-Speaker-Connector-Vehicles/dp/B016YIFQ7I
