Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental
EATC sets code of 030 which is DTC which is B1253, IN-CAR TEMPERATURE SENSOR (short). Please someone, advise where the IN-CAR TEMPERATURE SENSOR is located.
I think it is refering to the engine temp sensor ,not a sensor actually located in the inside of the vehicle,on this model the coolant temp is controlled by the cylinder head sensor ,see attached shematic hope this helps

Testimonial: "Thank you, but.... I should be more clear. This issue arises from lack of A/C. Always has worked perfectly. Can't recall when I last used A/C or noticed the A/C compressor engaging -- perhaps sometime in November 2013. Possibly even this spring. Alas, there now is no cold air, no compressor engagement, and diodes and electronics seem intact. Lincolns indeed have cabin temperature sensors. The spec for my 97 Continental is MOTORCRAFT Part # YH479. I believe EATC which tells me that the sensor is shorted to ground, thereby making the system believe that the interior temp is very low. I appreciate your response, but I still believe that I need to know where MOTORCRAFT Part # YH479 is located --no doubt somewhere behind/under the dash. That's a large and cramped space."

It is a sticky sensor in the door latch mechanism. Spray it w/ WD-40 and follow up with a dose of silicone spray. Open/close doors several times and it should be ok. If you have a problem with 1 door the other 3 are sure to follow---DO THIS TO ALL 4 DOORS!!!!!!!!!

just press the button to reset it. Per your owner manual. Should only trip in an accident.
WHen you turn on the key, can you hear the fuel pump run for 5 seconds. The pump is in the fuel tank. listen there while someone turns the key on. report back.
