    Sync Situation

    I had posted on the Ford Sync Forum about a situation that popped up recently about music being played/shown not in order from my external hard drive even though it was fine in the past. Mp3 tags are what they should be. ( https://fordsyncforum.com/index.php?/topic/7490-albumssongs-no-longer-in-order/ ) However, now something new has happened where I would be playing music, change the source to radio, then go back to the music, and the song that was playing starts again, but the track meter would show the point where I had changed the source (ex. track would show a certain time where I stopped the song but the track starts from the beginning). I've done a master reset but it seems it has gotten worse. Sync is updated. Unfortunately, my local Lincoln dealer with whom I had a good rapport with, was sold and the new owners were not allowed to become Lincoln dealers. Now I need to find a good Ford dealer.

    Sync Brain Fart

    Mine did this about a year and a half ago. Don't remember what I did to fix it, if anything. Although, it may have been the verbal threat and beating.
  3. I was/am in the market for a 2020 hybrid. Unfortunately, the only ones that I had found were with a pano roof. Don't want that cause there is no rear window shade available with the pano. The other thing I've found is they are almost as much as a new car. But, then, it's been a while since I last looked so prices may have changed.
  4. Here's a new one. Has anyone ever had a situation with the wiper blade motor? All of a sudden, mine is making a RRR-rrr noise. It was not the blade as it was raining pretty good. It was coming from beneath the windshield.

    Fob Battery

    Ok. For the last month plus, every time I would start the car and I would get the warning that fob battery needed to be changed. So, I finally changed it yesterday with a brand new battery. (Manual says it takes a 2032 when, in fact, a much bigger 2450 is the one that goes in it). I'm still getting the warning to change the battery. Do fobs go bad?

    Loss of 3G Support in 2022 ?

    I got a quote for the 4g modem of $500. They said that it takes about 90 minutes to program the modem. Does any one know what the programming entails? So, I'm not sure if the 90 minutes is for install and programming or just programming.

    Sync Update

    I found the problem. When I unzipped (eh-hem), the whole folder went to the usb, not the individual files. Also, the screen says the the update, or something, is in process. And that is not stated anywhere on the Lincoln site that those words would show up on the screen. Took all of 2 minutes to do the update. Screens says the rest will occur when the vehicle is restarted. Did that. Now the Build shows 20204 from 19xxx

    Sync Update

    Lincoln tells me there is an update for my 17 hybrid. I followed their instructions but can someone tell me exactly what should be done? I start the car, put the usb in. Then what? Is the system supposed to tell me something while it's doing it's thing? I've done it 2 times. Both times over an hour. Usb is formatted correctly. Nothing on the screen at all tells me mission accomplished. Sync version still says 3.0. The update is v3.0.20204. The only thing that has changed is on my usb external hard drive I use for music, some artists have changed from artist to composer (ie. I have the soundtrack for Charade from 1963 with Cary Grant. The artist now says it's Amy Grant instead of Charade Soundtrack. Huh?) But, I digress.

    Used MKZ prices

    Not where I go. Lincoln/Hyundai dealer has an upper lot that held about 200 cars. It now only has a row of 15 that face the road.
