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 helps97 lincoln continental location of IN-CAR TEMPERAT - 3f4e7974-fe11-4e87-aff830d78ba450db.png

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!!!!!!!!!

Do you hear any clicking sounds coming from behind the instrument panel ? Electrically controlled actuators move temp . blend doors and they wear out .Plastic gears etc..
Electronic Automatic Temperature Control System
The electronic automatic temperature control (EATC) system operation is determined by the settings on the EATC module. The EATC system automatically maintains a selected temperature for vehicle interior comfort, including capabilities to maintain separate temperature settings for the driver and front passenger. The electronic temperature control capabilities are achieved by splitting the air distribution system internally and utilizing 2 individually operated temperature blend doors. The EATC system is composed of the EATC module, automatic temperature control (ATC) solenoid and manifold, blower motor speed control, 4 vacuum control motors, 2 temperature blend door actuators, in-car temperature sensor, ambient air temperature sensor and solar amplifier (sunload sensor) to control the various functions. Do you know about DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?

The electronic automatic temperature control (EATC) system must be diagnosed by first retrieving any DTCs, if present.
  • An on-demand (hard fault) DTC indicates that the fault is currently present. An on-demand DTC suggests a wiring fault, disconnected connector or component failure.
  • A continuous (intermittent) DTC alone (corresponding on-demand DTC is not present) indicates that the fault is an intermittent condition and may not be currently present. A continuous only DTC suggests a poor wiring connection, loose pin or terminal or intermittent component failure.
On-demand (hard fault) or continuous (intermittent fault) DTCs can be retrieved using a diagnostic tool. If using a diagnostic tool, refer to the diagnostic tool operating manual.
On-demand DTCs can also be retrieved by carrying out the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module On-Demand Self Test. To retrieve and/or clear continuous DTCs carry out the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module - Retrieve Continuous DTCs procedure. Always carry out the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module On-Demand Self Test before retrieving continuous DTCs.
If no DTCs are present, GO to Symptom Chart for the appropriate diagnostic action.

Is this the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) ? Have you check for DTC'S ?
Did you try a cold boot ?
Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) Module and Electronic Manual Temperature Control (EMTC) Module Cold Boot Process
The purpose of the cold boot process is to allow the EATC or EMTC module to reinitialize. To carry out the cold boot process, follow the steps below.
  1. NOTE: EATC only. Clear the DTCs.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  1. Disconnect the EATC or EMTC module electrical connectors.
  1. Inspect module connectors for:
    • corrosion.
    • pushed-out connectors.
    • incorrectly seated connector.
  1. Wait one minute.
  1. Connect the EATC or EMTC module electrical connectors.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  1. Select any position except OFF on the EATC or EMTC module.
The EATC or EMTC module will now initialize.

Codes 025 and 024 mean blend door failure. So it's either stuck of the broken, or the actuator isn't working.
