    All Windows and Sunroof Open

    This happened to me a lot and since I never actually needed to press a fob button, I got a harder shell case and that solved the issue, here is a link to one type https://www.ebay.com/itm/133695254132?var=433140749372

    No GPS Icon

    Happened at least twice to my 2014 when I still had it, I am almost sure I posted a thread on here but can't locate it, I tried searching for "GPS" & "NAV" but no results shown.....maybe the search engine is not working because it didn't show this thread either. Edited to add Found it https://lincolnmkzforum.com/topic/1760-loss-of-sat-signals/?tab=comments#comment-6672 Still not sure why "Search could not find it by "NAV" as that was in the body of the OP..... maybe search word too short, I found it by search for "satellite"

    Headlight DRLs?

    Why don't you just have the dealer turn on the function in your 2013? I had it done when I owned a 2013 MKZ

    Interior trim touchup

    There are a number of silver paint markers out there, I believe Sharpie is one brand. May have to experiment a bit to find the right shade. Check hobby stores like Michaels or Hobby Lobby.....also Walmart. We use them in the bike shop to write numbers on black bike parts

    Mkz Reliability

    That was what I was thinking, I never thought of my Z as a compact

    Getting to the interior fuse box on a 2017

    Look at this post above from Chris109 on Oct 20, it gives you info on folding down the panel hiding the fuse block

    2018 MKZ drl issue

    I would bring it back to the small dealership and have them make it right..... you may want to check with carfax to see if it was in an accident.

    2014 MKZ Hybrid 12v Battery

    Jumping in as a former Hybrid owner, I have jumped other vehicles both from the posts in the engine compartment and the battery in the trunk. No difference. Never had to hook up a charger to my battery but I do not see a valid reason to use one location over the other other then convenience, both should accomplish the same task. I think it is easier to use the hood posts and easier to see rather then go through the trunk access door. I believe I once hooked up a charger/booster battery to the hood posts while changing the actual battery. I did this to maintain all the memory settings,... worked fine, just have to be careful because the cabling is live..

    Water sound??

    Check the drains for your a/c condensate line, may be plugged. I have also seen cars where the drains in the doors (along bottom edge) are stuck or plugged and make a swishy sound when accelerating or braking, check those as well
  13. bbf2530, not sure if you were going to attach a file or provide a link but I don't see anything there. Linc4chelle, have you tried a magnet on a string to retrieve the screwdriver?

    Key FOB Blocked

    There are other signals that can act as EMI or RFI and mask the fob frequency. It doesn't just happen at gas stations. Getting your fob closer to the center console cup holders will help.
  15. So if you put back in the old headlights, does the message go away?
