keyless entry help

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a 2010 MKz and I have been trying to enter a keyless code. I have no problem entering the code but what I do have a problem with is that the mirrors keep setting to something other than what I want. The seat goes into position just fine but I can't get the mirrors to stay in memory. Can someone give me instructions to set the mirrors and seat  to go into my adjusted specs when I enter the door code? I have followed the manual and reset the code countless times but always the mirrors giving problems. Thank you,

Hi Ed and welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum. If you are following the Owners Manual instructions and the system is not operating correctly, then then there is possibly/probably some sort of electrical/electronic issue.

 

To be honest though, I have a 2007 and 2018 MKZ, and am not aware of that being a feature of the MKZ. Does your 2010 Owners Maual state you can set the seats/side view mirrors to adjust to a keyless entry code?

They can be set to a remote keyfob, but I am not aware of them being programmable to a keyless entry code.

 

Perhaps another member will jump in with more assistance.

 

Keep us updated and good luck.

Yes I am supposed to be able to input my own code and the mirrors and seats will adjust to the  positions I had set but I seem to be missing something somewhere. At least on the 2010 MKZ. I have a 2016 MKZ hybrid that I don't think does that but not sure as I'm the only one driving it so nothing changes. Thank you for replying.

Hi Ed. I learn (or re-learn) something new every day! Yes, you are correct. I just looked it up in the 2010 MKZ Owners Manual and that function is available and should work. In fact, it is also available in my 2007 (not my 2018 though). I use the factory code and never set up a personal entry code, so I probably forgot about that available feature over the years.

 

Okay, all of that being said...I guess we go to Troubleshooting 101: Will the mirrors adjust to your preset memory positions when you press the Memory preset buttons on the inside of the door? Change the mirror position with the manual mirror adjustments. Then press a memory preset button. If the mirror does not readjust to the memory preset button being pressed, then it is likely an issue with the power mirror memory function itself. If it does readjust to the memory preset button, then there is a likely a glitch in the keyless entry/mirror memory function that would need addressing.

 

Let us know how you make out and good luck.

Well, just like you, I too have learned something. I'll try the function you mentioned and get back. Thank you very much.

Hi Ed. You are very welcome. However, I am confused and have no idea as to what part of my advice helped? 😂

 

What did you do? What was the outcome? Is everything working properly now?

 

If you can explain what you did, and how it helped, it may help others with the same problem in the future.

 

Good luck.

I was not aware of the mirror preset buttons on the door. When you mentioned them I looked them up and used the 1st one. I will try the other for another persons code later. Now the seats and mirrors adjust properly. Thank you
