Question about 2006 Lincoln LS
The 2006 LS must have the air bled out of the system every time the cap is removed to check or add coolant. There should be a rubber hose hanging somewhere very close to the plastic bottle where you add coolant. It will be capped off and the end will have what looks like a plastic screw. With a screwdriver slowly unscrew(open) until air starts escaping. After all the air is out and only coolant is leaking out retighten screw and you are done. Needs to be done every time you open the refill bottle as air gets in then.

- If temp guage reads normal, the lack of heat may be due to the Heater Control Valve. Located in front of the radiator. Lower passenger side. A real bugger to replace.
- The plastic cap just over the thermostat is key in re-filling the anti freeze and bleeding air.

The problem is most likely a bad dual climate control valve. This component is located on the right side near the radiator under the hood. It will have several coolant hoses hooked to it and 2 silver cylinders protruding from it. You can clamp off the heater hoses at the heater core and see if both sides cool then and this will tell you that the valve is letting coolant thru when it shouldn't be.
This will narrow it down to either the valve or the control head inside the car,or wiring in between them. The only way to narrow it down further is if you have a scan tool that could access the climate control data. Have seen several of these valves cause this concern and have only seen one control head cause it.

It is probably the (DCCV) Dual climate control valve. It is located RT front of engine with heater hoses and wires goin to it. I ordered one from Rockauto.com for about a $100.00 i think. It is pretty easy to change and I found out when mine went out that it was a very common problem with these cars. When mine quit it started the same as you are describing for a while then it only would blow hot air and it blew the a/c compressor fuse. The DCCV is a dual cylinder valve and i beleive that they get stuck open and short out. If you have any more questions or need more information let me know.

SOURCE: my driver side seat is
Both of the front seat heaters run off of the same 2 fuses, so the problem is not a fuse if the passenger seat is working. Each seat has a separate electronic control module, so a bad driver's seat module could be the problem. The seatalso has 2 elements - onefor the seat cushion and one for the seat back. If one is heating and the other is not, then the problem is probably a failed element. If neither element is heating, then the moduleis most likely at fault. The modules in the seats are controlled by the Body Control module (BCM), so the problem could also be a fault in the class2 data circuit between the BCM and the driver's seat module.
In any case, a scan of your BCM will probably yield a fault code that will lead you in the right direction.
