SOURCE: constant high heat

on climate control press off and heat button and let go quickly. Then press automatic. The display will start rotating eventually displaying a code 025,125 , 024 etc. Then press defrost to stop. You may hear blend door operating atb that time. It worked for my climate control.

The heater and a/c blend door actuator motor is located behind the center of the dash just below the windshield. The steering column must be detached and lowered and the dash must be removed to access the blend door motor.

SOURCE: lincoln continental cabin filter

I solved the problem by ordering the filter fro an online site that gave instructions:
instructions at this link are:
Turn on wipers until they are in an upright position then turn ignition off. Open the hood. The filter compartment is on the passenger side, directly beneath the windshield. Pull back weather strip and remove cowl. Slide the water shield toward the front of the vehicle then lift to remove. Replace filter and reassemble.

I have it out and am waiting for new filter.

How to remove console 97 lincoln continental

I replaced the blend door actuator (BDA)a couple of years ago. It is a challenging task, but if you are young with good eyesight, not too large, and patient, you can do it WITHOUT the enormous hassle of removing the console, which is a two man job. You need good illumination, perhaps a small mirror, possibly a camera to take some closeups of exactly how the BDA is attached, and a flexible shaft nut driver. Not too bad of a job, IF you study and plan the task with some care. I would never recommend removing the console. That is just asking for trouble and frustration, and your car will be out of commission until the console is PROPERLY connected. Good luck.

Location of blend door on heater assembly on 2001 navigator

The blend air door is located INSIDE the A/C-heater housing assembly.
The blend air door is controlled by an electronic actuator. It could be that the actuator is malfunctioning. It is pretty easy to replace.

Since your Navigator is most likely equipped with automatic climate control, you may also have a problem with the interior temperature sensor. This could make it do what you are describing. Sometimes, a defective sun-load sensor can also cause this.

Then again, you may even have a broken blend air door (pretty common for Ford/Lincoln/Mercury products). If this is the case, the instrument panel must be removed to repair it. (HUGE JOB!)

I would recommend scanning your computer network to see if there are any HVAC fault codes before doing ANYTHING. There just might be a fault code to tell you what the problem is.

There is no heat & i hear a clicking sound under dash near glove box

right, that clicking is your blend door actuator stripping its gears. Follow the sound to locate the actuator and replace it. You may need to remove the isolation panels and/or the glove box to get at it. Sorry I don't have a manual for your car, or I would give you exact procedures. You may be able to find a manual at the library or buy one at the parts store. Thanks for using FixYa.

The blend door actuator makes a clicking sound like it catches and releases. is the repair easy and what parts are needed?

Sounds like the teeth are striped and depends on which one is bad to how hard it is to get to. But the door has to be checked if the door is broke or binding it will just take out the new actuator whick is what there called. The book time on the outside recirculation is .9 hours the rest are 3.2 to 5.4 hours. I checked for TSB on them and there isn't any so there is a good chance the air blend door is ok. If the one that calls for 5.4 and others that are 4.3 is going to be kind of hard.

Air conditioner blowing hot air

Blowing hot air when set to A/C is almost always a stuck blend door, dead blend door actuator, or a cracked or disconnected blend door actuator vacuum line. The blend door is inside the a/c ducting under the dash, but the actuator will be accessible outside the ducting.

I have to replace the ac door actuator motor behind the ash tray

are you sure it is not the temp control on the heater control panel that's bad?
please rate if this solves your issue.

A/C Electronic Blend Door Actuator The A/C electronic blend door actuator is located on the rear of the A/C evaporator housing assembly.
  • Its function is to move the A/C air temperature control door on command from the control assembly.
  • The A/C electronic blend door actuator contains a reversible electric motor and a potentiometer. The potentiometer wiper is connected to the actuator output shaft and moves with the output shaft to indicate the position of the A/C air temperature control door.
  • A 5 volt signal is applied to the ends of the potentiometer. The voltage available at the wiper indicates the position of the potentiometer. The expressed value of the actuator wiper voltage is sent to the control module and is matched with the wiper voltage of the module potentiometer. The printed circuit board then drives the actuator motor in whichever direction is necessary to make the actuator wiper voltage agree with the control module wiper voltage.
