    auto insurance plug-in monitor

    HoitRodLinc, Being in Florida also, I have not seen my rates increase beyond normal COLI. My wife and I have both nice recent year vehicles including full coverage and our rates have been steady over the last 5-8 years. I am in North Central Fl and have no explanation of why you are seeing otherwise
  2. Or just get a vanity plate for the front
  3. Any info out there on the hybrid release date for the Corsair... desperately need to get back into an SUV and desire a hybrid.
  4. Sorry but I cannot imagine not having the AC on 365 days a year, but then again we live in FL and find that we need it. 😎
  5. I have an android phone and have found it to lose the reading of messages once in a while. To get it to work I completely remove the Bluetooth info in the phone and in the car. Shut down power to both and then restart and repair it. There are a couple of questions asked just after the repair starts of which one is about the MKZ allowing message access. This must be answered "always" for it to continue to work. There was a previous thread on this.....

    Instrument Cluster Flickering / Outage

    Dielectric grease is not a conductor and therefore will not improve continuity but if your connections are tight it should not block current. I am a retired (41 years) communications and electrical specialist. I still keep a tube of it in my bag when I would work on all outdoor connection that are subject to damp conditions. If you want the proper grease for your purpose, use a No-Ox-ID or NOALOX grease. It does help improve conductivity and prevents oxidation and chemical reactions between dissimilar metal (i.e. copper and aluminum connections). You can find is in any of the home improvement stores, auto parts or an electrical supply company, a small bottle or tube goes a long way
  8. There is a thread discussion discussion on the MKZ Club membership that has benn hanging out there for a while (since Jan) that is still waiting for a response. drolds1 recommended that I drop a line to robertlame,about the issue which I did on Jan 24 but there has not been a reply and looks like it remains unread. Please see the posts in this thread starting onJan 23, 2019


    Thank You


  9. Did we ever figure out who is running the show here? My message to Robert Lane has still never been read.

    Instrument panel lights issues

    I only mentioned it as I saw it in the manual I gave a link to.

    Instrument panel lights issues

    I'm not familiar with the 2010 so I tried looking up the owners manual on the Lincoln site but being that it would not respond I went here https://www.manualslib.com/manual/94831/Lincoln-2010-Mkz.html?page=54#manual Looking at pages 53 & 54 it talks about the proper position of the headlamp switch for various functions. In your describing of the symptom, it almost sounds you are activating the DRLs rather then the Autolamp function Just a thought
  12. Sadly, no information as to specs or when the hybrid version will come out but I do like the styling

    Recommend me a cell phone holder

    No but I would be interested in your review of it.

    What’s your next car?

    My car also has ACC and have noticed it detecting a car slowing down (to make a right turn or whatever) and have felt the automatic braking applied, especially if the distance between us is narrowing.. I don't really consider it a fault, just a reminder that I am a little too close. 🙄

    What’s your next car?

    Now I know what happened, the cats saw the dobermans and pressed the 'R" to reverse out.🤣

    What’s your next car?

    Yes, you are right, I missed it. but still far our and not sure if pricing will fit with what I am trying to do here.

    What’s your next car?

    😄.... that's great I don't know what happened officer, my cat was driving 😂

    What’s your next car?

    I didn't see the Corsair listed on that build out sheet. too far out.... I need this now or in the next few months, Can't even find any build/pricing info on the Corsair online to even see if I want to wait that long. Checking out the 2019 Toyota hybrid RAV4 hopefully this week.

    What’s your next car?

    Seriously need an small SUV or a crossover but after the MKZh I definitely want another hybrid.... Don't know if I can wait until 2020 for the Lincoln version

    MKZ Seat movement/noise (TSB)

    Can't say I have even though I went through my own seat issues

    Weird Radio Issue

    Sounds like reboot of the system would be the first step. You may want to try disconnecting your battery and see if it clears the problem after reconnecting.

    just had a used MKZ delivered today!

    Howdy, Pull up a stool and stay for a while. 😄
  23. 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
  24. That is all I subscribe to is the weather and traffic info.
  25. This started back in September, Check Engine light came on and so I made an appointment (one week out) light went out 2 days before the appointment. one week later came on again for 1 day and disappeared. Third time was on again for a few day, so I made another appointment (10 days out). Light went out again but I kept the appointment and they said it was a faulty O2 sensor but none in stock, finally got it in 3 days later and they replaced back on 10/15/18. Light came on again today (now this is becoming annoying), have to wait again until next Thur for appointment.😪 Back on 10/15 they replaced part CJ5Z-9G444-B Sensor - Exhaust for a retrieved code PO13A. Also stated that no exhaust leaks found details say this is the Catalyst Monitor O2 sensor. I am not noticing any performance or odd engine issue. Does this make sense to any mechanically minded out there?
