    Chrome Delete?

    I always thought vehicles with blacked-out trim and wheels looked like test mules, or the low-end model. But - to each his own. I don’t understand buying a new, expensive vehicle that you don’t the looks of and then changing it. Why didn’t you just buy a vehicle with blacked-out trim?

    2022 GT Clicking noise

    Some HVAC actuators are easy to reach and replace. Some require partial or full removal of the dash assembly (on some vehicles). If you remove the battery cable - it will erase any stored trouble codes, which will prevent the dealer technician from identifying the source of the problem (if a code is set and stored). Since the car is under warranty, I would not remove the cable and suggest having the dealer evaluate and repair the car. There MAY be a TSB available for the dealer technician to quickly determine the source of the noise. Best wishes - let us know what the dealer determines.

    2022 GT Clicking noise

    There are multiple HVAC actuators - especially on vehicles with dual-zone HVAC systems. The system can be placed into calibrate mode by the dealer’s hand-held scanner, or on most vehicles, they also default to self-calibrate mode when the battery is disconnected and then reconnected. SOME vehicle have a process for the owner or technician to place the system into self-calibrate mode, by pressing a variety of HVAC buttons or holding one down for a length of time. This information is often not in the owner’s manual - but rather the service manual. Usually the clicking means the actuator is defective, or the mode door connector to the actuator is broken or dislodged.

    2022 GT Clicking noise

    Haven’t had the problem - but your description sounds like a HVAC actuator that is self-calibrating, or defective, causing the clicking noise. The actuators self-calibrate when the battery is disconnected (or placed in calibrate mode). If it continues to click - there is a defect.

    No, I don’t work with software. I am a consumer, and purchase and use products that contain software. A software “bug” is nothing more than a clever name for a man-made software defect that attempts to deflect blame for the error. .

    You’re correct. But it is worse that Lincoln-Ford removed the feature from their customer’s vehicles without their permission, and didn’t tell them.

    Ford isn't scoring any points

    The really sad part about your issue it that a new vehicle should be delivered to the customer with ZERO defects. The vehicle was built new, should have been inspected by quality control employees at the plant, when received by the dealer it should have been inspected - and then a dealer service employee is PAID to do a pre-delivery inspection to ensure the vehicle is in perfect condition. All of the employees from the plant to the dealer that didn’t do their job right should be disciplined and/or fired. Good luck.
