 Description of the problem2011 lincoln mkx electrical system software recall lincoln issued a recall (10v659000) nhtsa campaign #11v128000 which required replacement of affected bcms may have the potential for an internal short. If an electrical short develops, an overheating condition may occur which could result in a vehicle fire. Our lincoln started to develop issues only a few weeks after purchase. The turn signal would repeatedly burn out. The dealership we purchased from replaced the bulb & housing several times with no permanent fix. After some research we found the recall notice & called lincoln directly. As it turns our the car (vin number & all fit the criteria for the recall per ford) however lincoln refuses to fix the affected module because the car is originally from canada! We live 1 hour away form canada, so iam sure we are not the first to buy a car in the us that originated in canada. At this point we do not even feel safe driving the vehicle for fear it will catch fire. The signal & running lights burn out every 2-3 weeks. Very scary! We cannot in good faith trade the car in either with knowledge of this information. The mechanics that have looked at the vehicle stated that there is evidence of an actual fire around the turn signal housing.
