Line the blade up in the slot and twist to separate the connector once the locking tab is released. It's just not worth the trouble to put that rear screw back in and my hands are too big. If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case. However I do have a special tool that allows me to get them in and out. Apparently Ford knew of this problem and that is why they changed it from being entirely plastic. If unit is good, it's probably a vacuum problem.
While warming up the motor prior to conducting the Self-Check, I was switching back and forth between settings and I could hear the gate opening and closing each time I switched settings, indicating that physically the gate and the related motor were operating. Anyways, I decided to remove the eatc wiring of the dash harness and install just that portion of the harness into my police interceptor. Ford is also selling ton of intake manifold on eBay to car repair shops. My Daughter has my 2005 Ford 500 away at college and is getting several knocks behind the dashboard when the car is started? The climate control system was behaving as it should, the eatc control head powered up and displayed the temperature, turning the blower speed control knob controlled the blower speed, and adjusting the desired temperature caused the blend door actuator to move. However, it took me anyway about 8 hours to do that.
If resistance is less than 5 ohms, go to next step. Let us all know how you make out!! A diagnostic tool must be used to retrieve these concerns. So I ran the Self-Check and it apparently reset the computer part of the system and it went back to normal operation. It has the automatic climate control and radio all in one unit. The unhooked the harness from the blend door and plugged it up a new one.
Because I smell no ethics in all these procedures, and if you have never been judged as a judge by any hardworking American, this is my opportunity to tell you that you did not represent me in any way or form or my family or friends by your decision. Do not overlook the support that bolts from the steering column to the body of the car. Remove the Temperature Blend Door Actuator. They thought it may be the control head. The test may run as long as 30 seconds. It is common to many Ford products.
I have been in this business for over 40 years and have found ways of doing things that shortcut the book. Just how long do you suppose it would take to remove and replace the whole entire dash from this car? Kept doing it and hitting defrost to exit out of test. The test may run as long as 30 seconds. Do you happen to know which picture actually shows this door that is not working?? The vehicle interior temperature should be between 4°C-38°C 40°F-100°F when carrying out the self-test. Just what work did they do that only took them 3 hours? If a code appears, need to check if unit is bad. So I decided to skip it.
I figured it might be caused by worn spark plugs so I took it home and proceeded to change the spark plugs and found oil in the spark plug ports. It sounds easy, sounds simple, and might give false impressions as to the difficulity of the repair. Why is it that judgement was not delivered in a manner so that the consumer had to be compensated regardless of time? I watched a youtube video on how this was done. The trick is to use a wide bladed, long screw driver between the edge of the connector and the blower speed controller. This will be the last time I buy a Ford. A lot of this sounds simple in words on a page, but in practice it is not.
The blend door actuator broke a gear inside so I replace it with a Dorman part could not find the Ford ones anywhere. The vehicle interior temperature should be between 4°-38°C 40°-100°F when performing the self-test. . This seems to be a very popular problem. More information on this sensor is avaliable Sunload Sensor: The sunload sensor is used by the eatc air conditioning system to determine when to recirculate the interior cabin air instead of pulling in air from the outside. Thought I had saved your pix from before but cannot bring up.
Original review: June 21, 2018 The Mercury Grand Marquis is very reliable, mid size and attractive. If not, it may need to be reset. Once you have unplugged the blower speed controller harness and removed the two 8 mm headed screws, you can sometimes wiggle the controller out of the car past the heater hoses. I do not know what the other posters do for a living, but they can probably do their jobs in a lot less time than I can. Called tow company for jump-start. They left it in a box in my backseat. The display will show 888 and all function symbols for one second.
