Heater in 2001 chevy tracker blows cold. when i switch from a/c(blue)to heat(red)i do not hear the (thud) like before. how do i repair myself? my mom is disabled & little $


You must remove the entire dash assembly to cure this problem. The cold air and no switch to heated air is a broken air temperature control bleed door is my opinion and most likely right.

94 Lincoln continental low oil pressure level all the time but manual guage says propper pressure and code 533 comes up with the dcl light. How do I fix problem?


normally you would check the oil pressure sensor which is located under the power steering pump and above the oil filter . how ever 94 lincolns have digital cluster issues. code 533 will trip on because of the oil gauge on the digital cluster or water temp. or low voltage etc. .

How do you check the DCL and charging system?


GO TO THIS LINK FOR A CODE TEST, DCL STANDS FOR "DATA LINK CONNECTOR" THE SYSTEM IS CALLED EEC IV, THIS STANDS FOR "ELECTRONIC ENGINE CONTROL, FOURTH GENERATION". HERE IS A LINK TO TEST OUT THIS SYSTEM.

My 1994 Lincoln Continental dcl light keeps coming on and then afterwards the the oil pressure light comes on. What is the problem?


it is a very common electrical problem with digital displays on lincolns, and unless you have extensive wiring experience, I'm afraid that your only option is to replace the display itself, I had to do it on my own 1990 continental twice before the problem went away, my brother's 94 continental still has that issue...luckily most auto salvage yards have these parts available, some even let you pull them out yourself, which makes things even cheaper, I hope this helps.
P.S. if you need instructions on how to take out the display let me know (or go and buy Chiltons)

Check Data Communication Link (DCL)


Look for a missing ground in the circuit. Almost sounds like your missing ground is being sought through other accessories. You will need a ground/power test light - This type lights Green for ground/and Red for power to find the problem.

Start with a schematic

What does "check DCL" on my dash board mean?


DCL stands for Data Control Link.

Basically The Engine computer sees some error with the communication to the instrument cluster. Sometimes the connections are loose, sometimes the cluster is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

I think you'll have to end up going to the dealer for a proper diagnosis.
