    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    Know how that feels. Like when I played my guitar for the first time in 3 years. OUCH!

    My cables were not that thick. Very easy to put behind any trim. I ran mine down the windshield side trim and then under the dash trim. I was thinking about the door side but it could get pinched. I looked at my car again and it seems like there shouldn't be a problem running the wire above the door. The rubber stripping moves so you have access to the trim. There seems to be plenty of room for wires under that trim. The only obstacle I see is the trim were the seatbelt attaches. That seems very secure but I'm sure with patience you could move it enough to get wire under it. From there, the trim to the back window seems accessible.

    I never even considered running it on the driver side. Things move under the dash and there are plenty of pinch points. Besides that, the steering wheel always gets in the way. And the fuse box isn't exactly in a prime area for access.

    Those service bay guys are just happy that they don't have to wash their own uniforms.

    I went up and over and down on the passenger side. Stuck the wire in thru the panel on the glove box side. Behind the glove box and down behind plastic trim and into the outlet. I'll do a splice into the outlet from behind the panel sometime. It's not at the top of my list of things to do right now. Jam it under these pieces. Wrap it under the corner and down the dash board. Remove the panel on side of glove box. I shove wire way back there so when I put that panel back on, the clips wouldn't damage the wire. Just cram wire up anywhere behind the glove box and stick behind plastic molding. This was a PIA cause I didn't want to remove the molding. If memory serves, this is where I started so as to not totally remove that plastic. Any extra wire is up behind the glove box. Should take you about 5 minutes.

    No need to pop them off. You can just push the cables behind the covers. There is enough give in them to jam in the wires. Plenty of vids on Youboob.

    What’s your next car?

    Another CC question. When I have a set speed on a main road, not a highway, with limited traffic, if the car ahead of me takes a right hand turn, my car comes to almost a complete stop before resuming even though the car in front of me is no longer in front of me having already made the turn. And I mean as if I had slammed on the brakes. Doesn't matter what distance is set. Anyone else notice this?

    I'll check again but I do not think mine does that. I need to press the Resume button. Looking at the speed control, when stopped, on the dash the mph cruise setting has a line through it, That tells me cruise is off and what the cruise speed is set for.

    Stop and go works great unless you are stopped for more than 3 seconds. Then you have to re-engage cruise.

    Climate Issues

    Found this. Not exactly for Lincoln but seems they are all in the same area. Looks like these actuators going is common on Ford products. A search will return plenty of hits. https://www.2carpros.com/articles/replace-blend-door-motor

    Munchers helping me drive. Notice the paw on the wheel. Now taking a nap cause she drove half way.

    You would have met both of them if you weren't one of those high class individuals that lives in one of them gated communities with armed guards and killer dobermans. 😸😸 Another duplicate. Trying to make a point.

    I'm looking into that one also. The one thing that I can't have is the buttons near the shifter. Whenever I take long trips, one of my cats needs to sit on my lap (carrier is not an option). She may inadvertently press one of those buttons. I would need to actually sit in the vehicle to judge.

    Intelligent Access? (not really...)

    There is a way to disable the horn honking by doing the Forscan bit. Here is a link to a tutorial: http://www.2gfusions.net/showthread.php?tid=4573 I know nothing about how it's done, but remember seeing it. Here is a list of what can be done. That double honk is in there. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yax6zfhZYj2joBczEeruqKh9X5Qhee3C0ngilqwTA7E/pubhtml?gid=0&single=true As an aside, I am one of those morons. However, I have a detached garage with garage doors and windows that haven't closed completely since the day it was built, which was almost 40 years ago. So CO buildup isn't really something I need to worry about.
