    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    I have mine in the lighter socket which stays on for an hour or so after shutting the car down, so it monitors when parked.

    Hi Voorhees and welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum. Nice fleet. Best of luck with your MKZ!

    Washed and waxed my Buick. Now the Link washed and in garage waiting for its coat of zymol.

    Livernois Tune Times...

    That's why I go to the drag strip, to let it all hang out and have fun so on the street I can be mellow. The Mustang ran that 11.7@121 on the stock craptastic Goodyear All Weather tires so she she could easily have gone 11.5 with real tires. The car is still at Ford because apparently very few people know how to rebuild the 10r80 so I'm in a line, this year is looking to be a low miles year so I'm looking at the positives. My MKZ on the street doesn't have wheel hop issues, thankfully they just squeal a bit and the car is off like a rocket. I haven't and don't street race my cars but it's nice to know what they're capable of. Car and Driver calls the 400hp MKZ hilariously over powered, I call it hilariously entertaining. :)

    Do you have a wiring diagram for the stock amplifier?

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    The front and rear camera is just a must. All it takes is just one time to think "Thank god I have this camera setup". It will be helpful should one witness an accident, and want to offer the video evidence to a victim. The final level is adding a 360 camera to view the entire interior (and surroundings of the car). If you want to catch door dingers, key scratchers, etc. and what not when they happen. The Aukey added a parking monitor OBDII power connector. I use that now for my front and rear since the OBDII power port is great for dash cameras and radar detectors. Despite not really caring that much for my Focus, its heavily secured with cameras and interesting the things I catch even if it does not involve my vehicle.

    Dang, stinks to hear your Mustang's transmission failed. I hope it got better for you afterwards. It is, the nature of the beast with drag racing, and why I don't make too much of a big deal how well a non-drag focused vehicle performs. Without drag-focused radials, the vehicle is already bottle necked by its rubber if rolling street tires. MKZ will require this along with good overall track prep and DA readings to hit high 11's. Otherwise, won't see that kind of performance on a time slip. The MKZ and other cars in general will just be more true to their abilities outside of the strip. So the nice thing is whatever time slips one pulls off, its actually doing better than that on real life roads. Of course, always drive responsibly and respectfully!

    I only have the tune, when cold it jerks into 2nd and sometimes 3rd which is frustrating and once when going WOT from a light the rev limiter kicked in at 5500rpm and I had to back off. It hasn't done that since but I worry about drag racing the car as my 2018 A10 GT transmission blew at the drag strip so I'm a bit gun shy right now. 12.6 is very nice! I'm hoping for a 13.0 with the 93 tune with nothing else done.

    Livernois Tune Times...

    First pass on a drag strip in the 2017 MKZ Drivers package... 12.662 @ 109.46 mph. Only had time for one pass. Livernois 91 tune, yes just the 91 tune... no 93 near me 😞 Michelin Pilot Sport 4's all round Steeda modded intake Ultimate Performance Rear Motor Mount for wheel-hop control Exhaust cutouts open to reduce rear muffler back-pressure Track prep was not great as most cars were spinning significantly. The best a new BMW M4 was getting on that track prep was 13.3 and a fire-spitting Supra was pulling 12.62. I brought the MKZ up against the torque converter to about 50% throttle just before launch to get the turbos spinning. I was scared WOT would wheel-hop. I probably could have gone WOT if the track prep was better to get the boost up even higher for launch. I shifted at about 5800 rpm in first and second as I was worried I was going to get wheel-hop like I do on the street. Didn't get any wheel-hop though. With good track prep, the Ultimate Performance Intercooler and Transmission Mount for a WOT launch, a larger Throttle Body, the GFB DV+ to hold the boost, the 93 tune and fuel, and shifting later... I think this sleeper just might squeak into the 11s! Anyone gone better than 12.5 yet?

    Hey everybody. New to this forum. Got about 30 days on my new to me Lincoln mkz 2017 w/3.0 at 24k miles. Great addition to the fleet.

    MKZ 3.0 AWD Drivers package

    Just wanted to make an appreciation post, I thoroughly enjoy my MKZ. Every time I have to go somewhere It gives me a smile and calms me with how isolated it makes you feel from the outside. Very quiet and comfortable ride, and also very quick. (Apologies about my portrait mode pictures)

    Insurance companies can make mistakes, and some companies access credit reports to influence your rates. So, mixing you up with someone with the same name could have an effect on your premiums. We caught an error on our policy (can't remember what it was) but I made them prove that the head office had corrected our profile.

    Shop around. While I had always hoped that being a long-term customer would get you the best rates from your insurance company - that just doesn't seem to be the case in today's world. I have had to switch car insurance companies about every 3 years to keep any semblance of a reasonable rate.
  18. MAB & My Classic 2012 MKZ

    Zurich ZR Pro OBDII reader/programmer BUG

    Just purchased the Harbor Freight Zurich Pro. After installation and all updates I discovered that it does not recognize the 2012 MKZ as a V6: It will only initiate the vehicle as a V4. After a long "hands on" phone session with Zurich trying different configurations, it was determined that Zurich needs to work on a fix. BTW, I got the coupon price then went online to find a discount coupon code page, entered all the codes on the HF order page until one gave me an 'extra' $200 off the coupon discount! The unit is also a Wi-Fi Android tablet MAB

    Changing speakers in 11 speaker model

    Id assume the amp is at least 200 watts. And if it’s the same bass level as the stock ones that’s fine it’s just they don’t have very good dynamics and really fall off around 40 hz which is where the bass notes in my music tend to be.

    Also shop around, the last 2 companies I was with both offered great premiums at first and then raised the premiums over 3 years to what I had come from. Just switched again to save 800 a year and will play the game again in another couple years.

    2015 MKZ HYBRID ,

    I have not had a dealer take a look at it yet, Im guessing that should be our next step,Just looking to see if anyone else has this possible issue.

    I would also recommend you contact your insurance agent or company directly to ask why your rates have almost doubled. Insurance companies can make mistakes and perhaps you are being charged for an accident or tickets you did not have, or there was some other unauthorized change made to your policy which you are not aware of. It has happened to others. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    2015 MKZ HYBRID ,

    This car should still be under the drive-train warranty, have you had a dealer look at the issue?
  25. I have the same system and I really don't think it will move the subwoofer. The way I did mine was to connect a high low converter on the rear deck wires and connect an aftermarket amp.
  26. We have a 2015 mkz hybrid 35000 miles, Recently when the car goes from gas to pure electric i am getting a humming sound that goes up and down with the speed of the car in electric,If i give some gas it will get slightly louder, I really can not tell if the humming is there under gas motor since the gas motor makes more noise it blocks it, Im not sure what it can be, The car runs and rides excellent,Plus i am getting 40 plus mpg, Anyone have any idea what this can be or should it be a trip to the dealer..........
