    Can you reset defaults on touchscreen

    Hi UD. Yes, I understood what you were saying. But unfortunately, that is the way they work. If they are left on when the vehicle is turned off, they will be on when the vehicle is started again. However, they do have a ~20 minute timer and will turn off (for safety reasons). Concerning the recirculation feature: It will not stay on because it is programmed not to for various safety reasons. For example...To ensure it is not left on too long, which would lead to condensation on the windshield of the vehicle, due to the air becoming too humid. Also to ensure fresh air is eventually brought into the vehicle, for occupant safety. Therefore, recirculation is an as needed selection, and not left on by default, or as last selected etc. In fact, even when recirculation is chosen, it will sometimes turn itself off, according to the interior humidity readings the sensors report. We do understand what you wish the vehicle settings were capable of, but it is not possible with the factory programming and settings. Hope that makes my reply more understandable. Good luck.

    Can you reset defaults on touchscreen

    Hi UD. What akirby stated. The heated seats do not come on by default. Only if the Climate Control option (in the Vehicle Settings) is set to "AUTO", or you left them on when you last turned off the vehicle. If yours come on in other circumstances, there is an issue. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Phone as a key issue

    Hi HJ. I realize you know the solution, but for others: Move the keyfob to a spot further away from the vehicle. Or place it in metallic bag to keep the transponder signal from reaching the vehicle. Or perhaps park a few feet further from the garage door, if you have a longer driveway/if possible? Keep us updated and good luck.
  4. Wishing everyone a healthy, safe, prosperous and Happy New Year! Good luck.

    Clear Coat Peeling

    Hi Mickel. Have you contacted Lincoln Concierge to file a formal report? If you have not, I would recommend you do that. Well, once once you have verified that the affected areas were not repainted. If it has been repainted in those ares, then Lincoln is not responsible. Again, unless the work was performed by a Lincoln certified shop. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Clear Coat Peeling

    Hi Mickel and welcome to the Blue Oval Forums. As akirby stated, this not a "common issue". Does it happen? Yes, as with all makes and models of vehicles. But not a common issue. I would take akirby's advice and stop by a body shop to ask them for their professional opinion as to whether the vehicle was damaged and repainted in that area. While I can't vouch for either party, the Service Manager is the professional. Drop-off/Pick-up drivers are generally retired individuals working on the side, or low person on the totem pole in the Service Department. That does not mean I am backing the Service Manager 100%, just stating that stopping by a body shop you trust, speaking to the manager or owner and having them look at your vehicle (not a desk person who only checks cars in) may be a good idea. If that area of the vehicle was repainted, the clearcoat peeling issue would generally not be covered. Unless the work was performed by a Lincoln Certified Body Shop. Keep us updated and good luck.

    How To Disable Hill Descent Control

    Hi j2. Yes, that was why I stated, "It mentions Hybrid models, but the procedure may be the same for non-hybrids. If not exactly the same, my guess is it would likely be in the Settings menu > Drivers Assistance of non-hybrids." My hopes are, for the sake of the OP, that the procedure to enable/disable may be similar. At least it would make sense for the enable/disable procedure to be similar. Either way, it was explained on pages 212 of the Owners Manual, and vicinity. Good luck.

    How To Disable Hill Descent Control

    Hi bdegrand. From the PDF version of the 2022 Escape Owners Manual, page 212: "SWITCHING GRADE ASSIST ON AND OFF 1. Press Settings on the touchscreen. 2. Select Driver Assistance Settings. 3. Select Grade Assist. The grade assist lamp appears in the instrument cluster. Your vehicle determines the amount of engine motoring and high-voltage battery charging. You could notice the engine speed increasing and decreasing to help maintain your vehicle speed when descending a slope." It mentions Hybrid models, but the procedure may be the same for non-hybrids. If not exactly the same, my guess is it would likely be in the Settings menu > Drivers Assistance of non-hybrids. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  9. Hi Thisguy. I will answer what I can off the top of my head: 2. The "regular suspension" does not have the same "adaptive suspension" (minus air suspension). 3. No. Most Black Label Perks only belong to the original buyer. No free car washes, yearly detail, etc. etc., unless the Dealer offers it on their own. Especially if it is not a Black Label certified Dealer. 4. Yes, just as with any used vehicle buyer, you will get the balance of the regular Lincoln 4 year/50,000 mile New Vehicle Warranty and 6 year/70,000 mile Powertrain Warranty. Anything additional would be between you and the Dealer, and need to be specified in the purchase contract. 6. Which is better is one of those "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" questions. Both headlight systems are excellent 8. Yes, all current Aviator models are equipped with SYNC 3 (which is actually pretty good). And yes, the SYNC 3 hardware and software can not/will not handle or be upgraded to SYNC 4. Essentially, a used Black Label carries no special cachet, unless you like the looks of the interior and exterior differences which are not available on non-Black Label Aviators (nicer Black Label leather interiors, Black Label wheels etc.). So don't get tricked into paying too much more for a used Black Label. Also, just to make it clear...None of he above is a shot at Black Label vehicles or the Black Label Aviator. I happen to like them. It is simply that Lincoln states the Black Label perks do not transfer to a second buyer, unless it is specified in the purchase contract. Perhaps they will do so for a Lemon Law buyback? That you will need to work out with the Dealer and Lincoln. Just be sure to get it in writing. I am sure others will jump in with more advice and opinions. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Sync and Nav Version

    Hi gang. Not sure if your 2022 SD has SYNC 3 or SYNC 4? If it is SYNC 4, it will update automatically. If it is SYNC 3/3.4, you can access the latest SYNC 3/3.4 and SYNC 3/3.4 NAV map update information by using the SYNC 3 SYNC and NAV map update website tool. https://www.ford.com/support/sync-maps-updates/ WiFi updates for SYNC 3/3.4 are spotty at best. So do not count on using the SYNC 3 auto-update/"Check for Updates" button in your vehicle, as it is often not accurate. Use the website listed above. And the newest version of SYNC 3 NAV maps is "NA 2 21". It was released several weeks ago. Again, this information applies to SYNC 3/3.4...Not SYNC 4. Hope this information helps and good luck.
  12. Hi EB1959. I can not diagnose what is causing your alarm system issue,. However, concerning your "Accy" on theory: Unless F-350's are different than other Ford vehicles, the second photo you posted shows the vehicle in "Ignition on" mode, not "Accy" (or Accessory"). Here is the explanation (I hope it is understandable). When the ignition is turned on with the engine off (Pressing the start button once without your foot on brake,) you are actually in the "Ignition on" mode, not "Accy"/Accessory mode. In that case, it is normal for the battery and engine lights to be on, because essentially many ancillary vehicle systems are now "ON", and the vehicle electronics and electrical systems are drawing a lot of power from the battery. For example, you will notice that the fan blower motor will still run, if it was turned on when the vehicle was turned off. Accessory mode is actually activated by pressing the start button twice, without your foot on the brake. In Accessory mode, essentially only the audio system and windows will operate. The blower motor and most other ancillary systems (i.e. the blower motor etc.) will be turned off. When in "Accessory" mode, the Battery and Engine lights should not be on. If they are, there is a problem. Hope this explanation was understandable. Good luck.

    Factory Screw-up

    Hi RobN and welcome to the Blue Oval Forums. Due to the pandemic induced parts and commodity shortages, the deluxe center console was not available for some time, and was being deleted at the factory and unavailable to order for some time. Just guessing, but perhaps your order was placed and accepted before that occurred. However, someone dropped the ball, because you should have been notified of the unavailable feature in your order and given the choice to reorder later, etc. I hope the Dealer reps told you about this before you purchased? Or did you discover this on your own afterwards? That would have been unacceptable. Although it was a mistake/oversight which should not have happened, you made out pretty good by getting a $1,500 discount though. Hope it does not take away from your enjoyment, and good luck.
  14. Hi j2sys. Hmmm...that was odd. Thanks you for letting me know. I have edited my previous reply to include a better link. Thanks and good luck.
  15. Hi SpykeYs. Sorry to hear about your accident but happy to hear you and your children were not seriously injured.
