Lincoln's first hybrid model debuts in 2011 and brings fuel efficiency and environmental consciousness to the luxury brand. Lights are led construction containing 3 elements. Your brake lights work through the multifunction switch which operates the signal lights. Many drivers love the sportier feel and performance increase this can offer. Lincoln's entry-level sedan is still a great luxury value. . The addition of an available hybrid powertrain in 2011 means the luxury value just got a lot stronger.
I believe use of led lighting should be warrantied for the projected life of the car due to cost. My vehicle was not damaged. Connecting it to the front wheels is an advanced continuously variable transmission. The light simply failed due to manufacturing of design issues. This is called 14m03 tail lamp assembly extended coverage. The Executive package, adds luxury items that include upgraded leather seating, interior wood trim and premium floor mats trimmed in suede.
Lincoln's Personal Safety System is standard, and includes anti-lock brakes, a full array of airbags, AdvanceTrac traction control and automatic headlights. The brake lights and siganl lights use the same bulb filament. They have extended coverage on these models to 10 years or 150,000 miles. I believe the 2012 models such as my current car should also have been covered because the 2011 and 2012 Mkz is so similar. I've been on many vehicle forums and have had discussions with many owners with the same problem with their passenger side headlight collecting water.
First check and confirm brake light lamp is working and that's not the case. Further loss of brake lights is a serious safety issue especially because of the extreme expense that is involved in replacing two tail light assemblies and a center light assembly were all three to fail. The vehicle was taken to a dealer and no diagnostic was done. Other wise you have to replace the switch. This I believe is a safety issue since drivers following our vehicle will not be aware when the vehicle itself is braking. The contact stated the tail lights on the left side of the vehicle failed.
Let us know what you find. The failure mileage was 39,000. The addition of an available hybrid powertrain in 2011 means the luxury value just got a lot stronger. If the signal lights work, you may have a bad brake lamp switch which is on your brake pedal arm. I have the same problem in my 1995 Lumina. So far I have had issues with my battery, the starter fuse, and the tail light fuse.
I was almost rear ended on the freeway one night because my taillight fuse shorted out during the drive. The system utilizes a 2. The water in the head light accumulated over time, so I cannot pinpoint exactly when the seal broke, but there is no repairing the seal. I get around it by just pulling back on the turn signal lever when I hit the brakes. The parking and running lights use a dimmer filament in the bulb. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. Replacing the headlight assembly is the only way for me to have taillights again on this vehicle.
Lincoln has extended coverage on 2010 and 2011 Mercury milan and Lincoln Mkz models. . . . . . .
