Customer Question
My 2016 Lincoln MKX’s...

My 2016 Lincoln MKX’s liftgate will not close. Not with the liftgate button, the fob, or interior panel button.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

No. But why would that keep the button and interior controls from working?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '16 Lincoln?

Mkx

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MKX yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just the button, control, and interior buttons.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
