2016 Lincoln MKX Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 042016


  • 365 miles


The contact owns a 2016 Lincoln Mkx. The contact stated that the warning indicator illuminated to check the head lamp system and "see manual on the display" displayed on the message board. The vehicle was taken to the dealer twice, but they were unable to replicate and diagnose the failure. The dealer reprogrammed the hcm, but the warning indicator flashed several times again months later. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer a third time for further testing again and they later told the contact to pick up the vehicle. The vehicle was not diagnosed. The manufacturer was notified. The contact was waiting for a response from the manufacturer. The approximate failure mileage was 365.

Led adaptive headlights are said to move in coordination with the steering angle when headlights are activated but do not. Even when set to automatic mode, headlights will only illuminate in the direction in which the vehicle is pointing partially blinding drivers in the oncoming traffic. Additionally the manual states on vehicle startup we should see the lamps track to a "predetermined position" then center. Mine does not do this. I also made sure to drive above 5mph and turned my wheel for very sharp into shallow turns. The manual also shows a whole sub menu just for the adaptive lighting. I also do not have this menu. Lastly there is supposed to be a digital speedometer in addition to the analog speedometer in the settings menu, there is not one. The owners manual clearly states that in order to activate this feature you must go to settings menu under trip1 trip 2 and select the feature. Its not there and make looking down at the very tiny numbers on the analog speedometer difficult during driving and takes your attention away from the road.
