    '19 Expedition Tail Lights

    Hi Richard. Instructions for changing the taillight bulbs are on pages 346-347 of your Owners Manual. In the "Maintenance" section. Good luck.
  2. Hi John. I am not a tech, so just trying to help. Although the SiriusXM radio is already working, you can have Sirius send a refresh signal to your vehicle and see if it helps: https://care.siriusxm.com/retailrefresh_view.action#/refreshradio How long have you had your Explorer? Did Travel Link ever work properly? If you recently purchased your vehicle new, you could stop by the Dealership and ask your salesperson to walk you through the process to see if they can get it working. If things are still not working properly after that (and one of our tech members can not help), you will probably need to schedule a service visit. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    2019 Ford Escape SEL - deactivation of Auto Unlock

    Hi again mpcmotorsports. After some further searching, found this: "Auto-lock and Auto-unlock Step 1 Enter the Escape and shut the door. Switch on the ignition. Press the door unlock button three times, then turn the ignition off. Step 2 Press the unlock button an additional three times, then switch on the ignition. Listing for the horn to chirp indicating you've entered programming mode. To change the auto-lock feature, press the unlock button then the lock button and listen for the horn to chirp. You'll hear a single chirp if auto-lock is disabled, or two chirps if auto-lock is enabled. To change the auto-unlock feature, press the lock button, then the unlock button. You'll hear one chirp if it is disabled or two chirps if it is enabled. Switch off the ignition to finish programming." Are those the full instructions you are now trying? Hopefully this will work and it can help others in the same situation. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ And also found this link: http://www.c-suvs.com/autounlock-226.html The link also gives two other programming options (three, including "See your Dealer"). Keep us updated and good luck.

    2019 Ford Escape SEL - deactivation of Auto Unlock

    Hi mpcmotorsports. So are you saying the instructions you referred to in your first post now work, and when you turn the car/ignition on (but don't start the car), you can disable auto-unlock following those instructions?

    2019 Ford Escape SEL - deactivation of Auto Unlock

    Hi Allen. Yes, I read all the posts and understood what the problem was before I replied, including when you mentioned the IDS system and a possible service bulletin. The Owners Manual information I provided was only meant to add to the already provided information, not contradict any of it. You and I both are assuming/guessing that the Service Tech "couldn't find" the procedure, which was why I advised the OP that his Dealers Service Department needs to contact Ford so they can "find" it. That is also why I gave the workaround listed in the Owners Manual, so his customer can at least override the autounlock feature when she feels the need to. It is not ideal, but since she is the worrisome type, at least maybe she will feel safer, until the Dealer does find the correct procedure for the permanent reprogramming. However, since they "couldn't find" the correct procedure, contacting Ford will assist the Service Department in finding the answer, right? Or perhaps the Owners Manual is mistaken and it can no longer be reprogrammed by the Dealer. The Service Department will need to figure all of that out, not us. I'm hurt Allen...sometimes I think you still believe I don't know how to read. All in good fun Allen. Good luck.

    2019 Ford Escape SEL - deactivation of Auto Unlock

    Hi mpcmotorsports. Some information I found: Page 61 of the 2019 Escape Owners Manual states: "To enable or disable autounlock, see an authorized Dealer". I would assume that means there is a Dealer programmable procedure to disable autounlock (or why say go to the Dealer)? The Service Department needs to contact Ford and find out the procedure. Also on page 61 is a workaround. It states "Note:The doors do not autounlock if you electronically lock your vehicle after you switch the ignition off and before you open the driver door" So while it is not an ideal solution, it seems she can prevent the passenger doors from autounlocking if she turns off the car and presses the powerlock button before opening her drivers door. At least it is a temporary workaround to let her feel safer, until your Service Department can contact Ford on how to reprogram the locks. Hope this information helps and good luck.

    How do you like the 2019 MKZ Hybrid?

    Stupid system here on Blue Oval does not allow editing after a very short time, so I am left to quoting myself above to add to my previous comments...lolololol.

    Oooops. Accidental double post.

    How do you like the 2019 MKZ Hybrid?

    Hi NJRonbo. Congratualtions! Looks great. Magnetic Gray Metallic? Same color as my 2018. In fact, I almost purchased from George Wall, but was eventually able to negotiate a better final price from another Dealership. Concerning the digital speedometer reading, here is how I access it on my non-hybrid 2018: Using the touchpad on the right side of the steering wheel do the following (realizing mine is a non-hybrid)- - Press the left arrow on the right touchpad to access the menu. - Press the down arrow on the touchpad to highlight "Speedometer". - Press the "OK" button in the middle of the touchpad. Voila! A digital speedometer in the middle of the dash display! And in addition to reading the Owners Manual, I would also recommend scrolling through, experimenting and playing with all the different settings in the Drivers Information Center and Infotainment/Navigation/SYNC screen. There is quite a bit there, and now that you have your new MKZ, it is much more fun to do than reading the manual alone. Best of luck with your new MKZ!

    Hi NJRonbo. The non-hybrid 2018 MKZ does. I am not 100% sure about the hybrid models, but I would safely assume they do to. It is accessed on my 2018 MKZ Reserve 3.0T AWD, through the Drivers Information Center buttons on the right side of the steering wheel. I am assuming the 2019 models are the same. Good luck with your new MKZ!
  11. Hi NJRonbo. Same reply as in your other posts: While I can not speak directly for the 2019 Hybrid, I do have a 2018 MKZ 3.0T AWD Reserve. All options except a moonroof. We love it. The 2018 and 2019 MKZ's are identical. I have found the Revel Ultima audio system to be excellent, especially for high quality audio sources/files. As with all audio systems, the sound quality is only as good as the audio source. Sirius Radio is lower quality sound, but that is due to the low bit broadcast by Sirius. HD Radio and flash drive sound sources are excellent. The ride is great and has several settings. Comfort, Normal and Sport. So you can set the ride for separate use in Drive or Sport transmission modes. I have it set for Comfort while in Drive and Sport when in Sport. I would highly recommend the 2018-2019 MKZ. Good luck.

    Potential AWD Issue

    Hi jcartwright00. Your AWD Fusion is behaving normally. It will route power to the rear wheels during acceleration, without the need for the front wheels to be slipping. If you notice, the power shifts to the front wheels once you reach speed and are no longer accelerating. That is all normal. It is also explained in your Owners Manual. I have a 2018 Lincoln MKZ 3.0T AWD. It performs the same way, with the added benefit of routing more power to the outside rear wheel when turning (among other torque vectoring benefits), thanks to the Torque Vectoring System. But the bottom line is your Fusion is behaving perfectly normal and its AWD system is doing exactly what it was designed to do. Good luck.
  14. Hi Drew. Could be ball joints, control arms, strut mounts etc. Can you determine if the noise is coming from the left or right side? Next step would be to put the car up on a lift and see if anything is loose/damaged. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
