Reply To: 2016 MKX dies @65mph & no warning


Possible problems – bad battery all Lincolns are power hungry I had an intermittent power failures on my 2016 MKZ check the alternator for issues, throttle body, ECU, Bad ground connection. Suggestion if it is a come and go thing have your phone ready and take video of the error message on the screen if the dealer won’t help then call Lincoln concierge. They may say a picture or video isn’t good enough and it ended up being that because I had an intermittent backup camera problem and they had to hook it up to their computer it failed in me in the dealer lot and I sat in the quiklane idling because I knew if I shut it off it would work again. I sat there 45 min and the service manager took a picture of the error message on my screen. Be nice and take control of the situation they end up normally folding
