    Thanks for the information. My husband took it to ford and it was the motor controller. The total cost for part and fix was $168.00.

    If this is a common problem, do you know if they have a re-call on this item or if they have plans on re-calling.

    Thanks again.

    I posted the following problem.

    We had it fixed by ford, since then we are experiencing the following problems, that we did not have before. Is there anything that they forgot to reconnect, came loose, etc. that would cause these problems. Thanks for your help and the solution to our problem, which saved us a lot of money.

    The problems we are having now.

    1. The light that lights us the panel where the Park/Drive/Reveres is, - At first when starting the car it does not light up until about a minute later.

    2. When I start the car in the morning to let it warm up, (20 min) I set the heater to blow on the floor and after about 20 min. the car still is not warm. I checked the floor and do not feel any heat coming out on the floor. I turn to vent and it comes out there. But on the driver side the heat is coming out very little from the vent, on the passenger side vent, it comes out strong. For the next 20 min. the heat still is not coming out on the floor. Then when I arrive at my destination, I tried it again and it now is blowing out on the floor.

    3. I have automatic locks; I push the button to lock the doors, all doors locked but the driver side. I have the key pad on the out side, I punched in the code to lock the doors and it would not lock the driver side. I had to manually lock the driver side.

    Is there anything they could have done or forgot to do, to answer why these things are happening now.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

Replace the blower motor controller. ford part # your local ford parts store to get it. I am a ford technition and this is a common problem but the new part has been revised so it will last a lot longer. 9 times out of 10 this fixes the problem and a new EATC is not needed.

If you have eatc and the blower stays on with the system off. It is your blower speed controller.It's located under the hood in the evap. case under the heater hoses. Follow the wiring from over the hoses.

I looked at your previous post as to the repair you had done and you had blower speed controller replaced. This component is located under the hood on the firewall next to blower motor and only controls the blower fan speeds. So the concerns you have posted here would not be effected by this.
You have described 3 totally different problems here. The problem with your heat is that the engine coolant temp is not reaching the temp that it needs to be. See EATC will keep the fan to the very minimum setting if set to the floor postion until engine coolant temp reaches 122 degrees F. The problem you are describing here is either the engine thermostat is stuck open or you have a restriction in coolant flow to the heater core or possibly the engine cooling fan is stuck on keeping engine to cool.
The problem with your electric door locks is the door lock actuator or the wiring to it inside the drivers door is bad.
The problem with the bulb in the shifter indicator is a loose or corrioded connection to that bulb.

Sorry to give you such bad news. Hope this helps you out.
