I have a 2013 Lincoln MKS Ecoboost, the climate control system is all touch buttons (Not inside of the LCD screen but below the screen) which are pretty nice but lately I have a very annoying issue with the + (plus) Button of the climate control. I would be driving the car and randomly the climate control starts to increase the Temperature as if I am tapping the + button on the climate control area. Sometimes when I press the - (Minus) button as the car is automatically increasing the temperature the temperature stops and then I can controll the temperature manually - or +, but other times no matter what buttons I press the car keeps increasing the temperature and I have to turn off the whole Heat/Ac to make it stop increasing and then turn it back on, but even that sometimes does not fix the problem, anyone knows why this could be and how I can fix this.
These are not push buttons that would stick down and the car thinks I am constantly pressing the + button. Mind you the steering wheel buttons I can use also to control the climate work fine, but when the climate control is acting up even these buttons do not seem to work, is this a computer issue or the touch button it self ? I would really appreciate any help/hints. thanks
* I have included a picture of the climate controls below, I am talking about the "RED + Button" on the right of "MY TEMP", for some reason it automatically is pressed or the car thinks I am touching it when in fact i am not.
