When and how do I replace the cabin air filter of my Lincoln MKC?
The cabin air filter cleans the air that comes into the interior of your Lincoln MKC through the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. It catches dust, pollen, and other airborne material that can cause discomfort to you and your passengers, especially if you have allergies or respiratory problems. Because of this, it also helps improve the cleanliness of your vehicle's interior compartment. According to the Lincoln MKC owner's manual, you need to replace the cabin air filter every 20,000 miles. If you neglect changing your vehicle's cabin air filter, you will experience reduced air flow through the HVAC system. You might also smell bad odors coming from the air conditioning. In order to prevent this from happening, be sure to inspect your cabin air filter at least once a year to make sure that it's still in good condition. This component is located inside the instrument panel and to the left of the glove box of your Lincoln MKC.
My Lincoln MKC has this feature called SYNC with MyLincoln Touch system, which I always use whenever I drive. However, I noticed that it has gotten slower recently. Is there a way for me to improve its performance?
The SYNC with MyLincoln Touch system is a feature available in new Lincoln models including the Lincoln MKC, and provides entertainment, information, and convenience. If you notice that your system is operating more slowly than normal, try adjusting phone pairing and turning off automatic phonebook download. To improve the voice recognition feature, list your phonebook contacts by their first and then their last name. if you're having problems with your Bluetooth connection, turn off your vehicle's ignition then open and close the driver's door, then wait for the MyLincoln Touch system to switch off. Make sure that the clusters are powered off as well, and wait 30 seconds before you turn everything back on—the ignition first, then the system and the clusters.
The battery of my Lincoln MKC keeps dying while I drive. How can I fix this?
You might have a charging problem with your vehicle's battery. The first thing you should check are the battery itself and the alternator by turning on the headlights. If they light up with normal problems, then the start relay or solenoid may have gone bad, the wiring connection between the relay and starter is loose or corroded, or the starter is faulty. However, if the headlights are dim or do not light up at all, then you have to check the battery voltage and charging output using a voltmeter. A fully charged battery should read over 12.6 volts, but if it reads 12.45 volts or less, then it needs to be recharged. Once you have charged it, connect the voltmeter to the battery again. It should read within the range of 13.8 to 14.3 or more volts at idle. If the reading is less than 13 volts, then the alternator is not putting out enough voltage and current to keep the battery charged.
