    just had a used MKZ delivered today!

    Howdy, Pull up a stool and stay for a while. 😄
  2. Don't be fooled by just reading voltage on a button battery... if your first fob is giving you a warning, better to change them all.... BTW did you read the posts above, there is a 2nd battery in each fob
  3. That is all I subscribe to is the weather and traffic info.
  4. Well, it has been about a month and the problem has not resurfaced. But a new issue has started, a fault In the air bag system After starting the car, the air bag warning light goes out for 1-2 seconds and then remains on solid. i looked at the connections under the seat and all appears to be plugged in tight, so back to the dealer it goes 😥

    12V battery life

    My understanding is that in the hybrid model, the 12 volt battery does not "start" the vehicle but that it runs all the electrical systems

    12V battery life

    Many things could cause losing mpg but the battery would not be IMO the first thing I would suspect. I would look at brakes, especially a hanging caliper
  7. check fuses .... also if you have not had the battery replaced yet in that 2014, I would have it checked, strange things happen when the battery start going.

    12V battery life

    Evidence of the standard battery going are different in the hybrid as the battery is not the engine starter. If you start to notice quirky things wrong or not functioning as they normally do, have your battery checked asap, especially if it is 4 year +/- time frame.

    Head light upgrade

    I had the coronas on ice for you, you never rang the bell
  10. Taking this to PM

    I just tried PMing MKZ Guide as "ADMIN" but it says  cannot message that user.

    I guess no one is running the show 🤐

  11. OK... I dropped him a line that day and it's almost three weeks. Message center says he still hasn't read it, which would explain why there was no eply Is he still around? 🙄

    Hybrid MPG

    If you are using pencil and paper to track just the last tankful then you will be off. You need to track overall history to be truly accurate. Looking at your fill up gals vs the mileage from your last fill up mileage for an "instant" number is not an accurate method.
  14. It has been a week since I sent the PM.... no response. Message is still showing up as "Unread" May be AWOL 😱
