    Memory Seats

    Ha! That's a beautiful cat, BTW. I'll bet she's shedding plenty right now.☺️

    Memory Seats

    Can't believe your cat is that mellow. On a short ride to the vet in a carrier, mine carry on for the whole time as if they were being burned with lit cigarettes.πŸ™€

    Pre-Collision Warning Option

    ...or adjust the sensitivity. I love when the car admonishes itself. Occasionally, it'll sound off when the stop-and-go feature is engaged and it gets too close to the car in front. I'll say to it," Hey, you're driving." Makes my wife laugh every time.πŸ˜„

    Be Safe out there

    My 2020 MKZ just turned 3 months old and turned over 500 miles last week. There's nowhere to go.

    Drive Control Malfunction

    First, check fuse #36 in the passenger compartment. Also, how is your battery? If that's OK, you'll need to retrieve the codes. I have no idea what an MCU module is. Where did you hear of this? The suspension is controlled by the vehicle dynamic control module (VDM), which is located in the trunk compartment. To diagnose the problem, it looks like you're going to need a dealer or a shop with the Ford diagnostic scan tool. See the troubleshooting guide from the SM:

    Jump starting hybrid battery .

    There are dedicated terminals under the hood. We have covered this. https://lincolnmkzforum.com/topic/3448-12-v-battery/?do=findComment&comment=12583

    Some would argue that the MKZH is not a luxury car and the rest certainly don't qualify.

    3.0T oil change ?

    I got the message when I was installing my front and rear dashcams. That was due to me forgetting that I'd left accessory mode on too long. As soon as I started it up, it cleared itself. That said, the ODO on my 2020 just turned over 400 miles yesterday after 2 months+. Where am I going?

    Steering wheel noise.

    Hello, Bernard and welcome. The Forum Help & Suggestions area is intended for questions about how the site itself works and for suggestions for improvement to it. Questions about the MKZ should be posted in the most applicable section of the forums. As you can see, the Forum is divided into specific topics concerning the car. Therefore, your post is being moved to the Interior area of the forum. WRT your question, you'll need to provide additional details about the conditions under which the problem happens when turning. Does it happen when turning in both direction? At all speeds? When both moving and not moving? Is the sound actually from the wheel or the steering column? Is it an actual rattle or more of a scraping sound? "Rattling thing" doesn't give us much to go on. And please be aware that rattles are hard enough to diagnose in person, much less over the Internet.

    3.0T Performance Modifications

    If you think the brakes on this MKZ aren't great, you should have driven my 2010 and 2012 MKZ Sports. Considerable "pucker factor." I'm not saying that the brakes wouldn't benefit from an upgrade, but using that as a frame of reference, this car stops like you threw out an anchor.

    Locking 2020 no audible

    Yup. Double-clicking did make the tone sound upon locking with the remote. Still no sound using other methods of locking. I tried locking with the interior switch and then re-locking with the remote to see what would happen. Still no sound. πŸ€”

    Locking 2020 no audible

    You're right. There's apparently no timer on the massaging seats for 2020, as there was in my 2017. Curious since IIRC, they said that there were health concerns were the reason for the auto-shutoff. LKA= Lane Keeping Assist. Sorry. Using abbreviations here is a bad habit of mine.

    Locking 2020 no audible

    I thought that too about the 2020s but the manual does say that it's supposed to sound the tone on the first push. My 2017 did it with the remote, the inside button, as well as with touching the ridges on the door handle. Also on my '17, the mirrors auto-folded upon locking the door with the interior button when exiting. Now the mirrors don't fold until you shut the door. Not a big deal but these little changes always puzzle me. More 2020 trivia: the LKA defaults to off now and you must re-enable each it each time you start the car should you want to use it. At the same time, autohold defaults to 'on' once you turn it on. I used to complain about that in my 2017. Of course, it wouldn't be the first time they made a running change and not informed anyone. I wonder if we'll be seeing a TSB for reprogramming or a revision to the OG any time. I'll try the double- click to see if it'll sound off then.

    Locking 2020 no audible

    My 2020 has no audible on locking either. Lights flash only. According to the OG, it is supposed to. It is enabled in my left side menu. I was going to shoot down to my dealer and let them have a quick look-see but the world closed before I got to do that. It's not really worth a service appointment right now.

    OBDII Link for FORScan

    Go figure.

    OBDII Link for FORScan

    Both my 2017 and 2020 show that in the cluster. My 2014 didn't.

    Center armrest storage

    My 2020 is 2 months old and has 330 miles on it. I might consider this item. Looks handy.
