Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS.

 

REASON FOR PROVIDING EXTENDED WARRANTY COVERAGE

Owners of all affected vehicles received a complimentary subscription to the MyLincoln Mobile or MyFord Mobile service.  This service uses an embedded modem that operates on a cellular network that is being decommissioned.  As the network is decommissioned, customers who actively use the MyLincoln Mobile or MyFord Mobile service will experience a loss of wireless connectivity with their vehicles.  This concern will not impact control or performance of the vehicle.

While customers who do not currently use the MyLincoln Mobile or MyFord Mobile service will not notice the effects of the cellular network shutdown, if they choose to activate their service in the future, it will not function with the existing embedded modem.

 

SERVICE ACTION

Dealers should ensure that customers are aware of the impending loss of MyLincoln Mobile or MyFord Mobile service.

If a customer requests the embedded modem upgrade, dealers are to replace the embedded modem with an updated part that operates on a different cellular network.  This service must be performed at no charge to the vehicle owner.

NOTE FOR LINCOLN VEHICLES:  If a customer would like more information about the MyLincoln Mobile service, or would like to activate their service and take advantage of this program, additional information can be found on the Lincoln Owner web site.  Navigate to owner.lincoln.com then select

SYNC & Vehicle Features,” then select the “Lincoln Embedded Modem” Quick Link.

NOTE FOR FORD VEHICLES:  If a customer would like more information about the MyFord Mobile service, or would like to activate their service and take advantage of this program, additional information can be found on the MyFord Mobile web site.  Navigate to www.myfordmobile.com.

 

New! OWNER NOTIFICATION MAILING SCHEDULE

Owner Letters for Lincoln vehicles were mailed the week of February 15, 2016.  A second Lincoln owner mailing will occur the week of December 5, 2016 to encourage owners to take advantage of complementary pickup and delivery service before it expires.  Owner Letters for Ford vehicles began mailing in several phases beginning October 24, 2016 and will continue through June, 2017.  Dealers should upgrade the embedded modem at the customer’s request, whether or not the customer has received a letter.
